West Palm Beach?
Man just listening to this song for the first time in years...
What an absolute beauty.
Thanks, that was pretty awesome
I would say "I See A Darkness" or "Raining in Darling"
The original, not the crappy countried up one obviously.
Nothing wrong with the album as a whole either, but it was a great way of annoying his own fans... cracking scenes.
is the answer to this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p26kW302T1g
blood embrace,pushkin,new gypsy.....far too many to list here..
vote for Raining In Darling here, closely followed by O Let It Be
It isn't just the greatest Will Oldham song - it's probably the pinnacle of human achievement.
It breaks my heart
I always read it as a clumsy encounter with a prostitute... unless I'm missing something.
just the whole bit about always being on his mind like he regrets moving on or doing whatever it is he's done but feels like it's too late to go back. And that's really sad :( I don't know, maybe I'm hearing it wrong but I love that song
I've got no idea what 95% of Will Oldham's lyrics are about (and I'd hope that most people would claim something similar in lieu of trying to be clever...) but that's part of the appeal. Having thought about it a lot more, your reading makes a hell of a lot more sense than mine...
so maybe he slept with a prostitute and that broke up the relationship he had and he feels like it's too late to go back to the one person he loved? I don't understand it but I bloody well like it.
Up there with West Palm Beach for me.
Work Hard, Play Hard, New Partner, and the key change in My Home is the Sea quickly following. And a specific moment about two-thirds of the way through Hard Life.
There's another list that follows that for third best, but i'll give it a rest...
and Riding of course.
AS IF I'M GOING TO CHOOSE JUST ONE, YOU MENTAL.
strange form of life
tonight's decision and hereafter
ease down the road
wolf among wolves
Or maybe the live version of Riding: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vTNb4XP4GtE&feature=related
