I'm not a fan of covers, especially when you add a whole orchestra, but I think even Leonard would like this:


Who is she? I never heard of her before but now I can't get her out of my brain:

She was in a great Swedish band called the Cardigans. Don't think they're together anymore.

Surprisingly engaging rendition of Famous Blue Raincoat. Persson captured the rich emotions of the lyric. The orchestra works better than I expected, especially considering it's an outdoor performance.

Thanks.

The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.--Yeats

Day 3. The exhale at the end of Food for the Beast still has me knocked out.

If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.

Day 5: Okay, she's gone. I can reclaim that part of my brain.

I have to admit Leonard's most recent versions are better, but she's very very interesting and beautiful.

Famous Blue Raincoat. One of my top ten songs, I think.

A great example of songwriting where the writer is excruciatingly specific in details, and yet leaves enough space for the listener to construct her or his own meaning. The wonderful illusion is created of the singer singing exactly the listener's life.
