"Sleep pretty darling, do not cry/ And I will sing a lullaby..."

Oh, happy day.  Glorious day.  Rootin', tootin' day.

I already told you about my deep, passionate love for Mumford and Sons in a previous post, but now get this: they covered my favorite Beatles song(s).

This version of "Golden Slumbers/Carry That Weight" initially takes a darker turn, but by the end, the four English lads are a pickin' and a grinnin' before capping it all off with the mesmerizing acapella harmony of "Boy, you're gonna carry that weight, carry that weight, a long time..."

Sighs of contentment all around.
