It just makes you feel cool to have songs from a group called Mumford & Sons. But you have to ask yourself if they would have done as well if they had gone with their original name “Marcus Mumford & His Merry Men.”
I’m thinking not so much.
Mumford explains the name change, "We called ourselves Mumford & Sons because we liked the idea of an old-fashioned family-owned store that sold cheese and whiskey, cigarettes and tools, stuff you cannot live without."
The Brit bluegrass-style band has lit up Freegal with songs “I Will Wait,” The Cave,” “Lover of the Light,” “Little Lion Man,” “Babel,” “Holland Road,” and “Where Are You Now?” all on the Top 100 downloads.
