My friend Reed is responsible for many of my favorite music memories, but this is one of the best songs he ever introduced me to. While visiting my place of work he pulled it up on YouTube and it has been favorited ever since. I’m probably responsible for a ridiculous number of the views the video has as I watch it several times a week. It seems to always fit my mood and sometimes provides the perfect sing-along (the role it fulfilled this evening).
The first time that Gillian Welch and David Rawlings sang together I’m sure the earth shifted. Or a lighting bolt came down from the heavens. Some sign from the higher powers that something magic had just occurred. We should all be so lucky to find our perfect compliments.
