Conor Oberst aka Bright Eyes

Conor Oberst, the former frontman of Bright Eyes, grew up in Omaha, Nebraska and went to Catholic schools. Though he is no longer a practicing Catholic, we think his Catholic upbringing shows up in his songs. We recommend the track “Bowl of Oranges” in which he sings, “I came upon a doctor, who appeared in quite poor health. I said, ‘There is nothing that I can do for you, you can do for yourself.’ He said ‘Oh yes you can, just hold my hand, I think that would help.’ So I sat with him a while then I asked him how he felt. He said, ‘I think I’m cured, in fact I’m sure.'” Watch the video here:
