  1. "Hard to song with someone who won’t sing with you"

    The Jayhawks, “Blue” (Tomorrow the Green Grass, 1995)

    Seventeen years on, and this still sounds heartbreakingly beautiful. One of my favorite bridges ever:

    All my life I’m waiting for someone I can show the door
    (Stand by, stand by, waitin’ round)
    But, nothing seems to change, you’ll come back I know
    (Now that I’m blue, that I’m blue, from now on…)

    Just a pretty perfect song.

    (While the video quality on this one is sketchy, the remastered audio sounds phenomenal. Grab an mp3 here.)
