Washed Out’s “Feel It All Around” quickly became tied to Portland after the television show Portlandia started using it as the show’s theme song. Now, whenever I hear it, I remember summer in Portland – and summer in Portland always involves food. Children running and playing in fountains at The Portland Saturday Market while the scent of grilling peppers wafts into the sunshine, lines that wrap around the block at Voodoo Doughnut and every food cart busily producing delicious meals. And since “Feel It All Around” brings about those feel good Portland moments, then it’s only fitting for it to be in a blog partially about Portland.
All in all, this song is merely here to set the atmosphere so that when you think of food in Portland, you can feel it all around.
