Patty Griffin - Rain

One thing I love about the Web is the instant access we have to music. I found this song by accident while trying to find the lyrics to another song. I ended up buying the album it comes from (1000 Kisses) at iTunes. 

 I don't know why certain songs appeal to me. But when they do I end up playing them over and over ad nausem. My iPod facilities this particular obsessive behavior of mine. I like moody music. I like to be carried away by a simple guitar rhythm. I like good lyrics, but they don't really matter if the music and voice can capture me. Anyway, I think you can tell a great deal about a person based on the music they like. 

For instance, Kristy doesn't like the Beatles. This explains her obsession with sock monkeys and police spokespersons. Hope you enjoy Patty Griffin.

I have been known to buy many an album for just one song.

So many times I have gone off looking for a certain song, only to find that I have spent the last few hours heading off listening to something else.

I to have a yearning for good lyrics, yet a certain sound a certain voice can make you sit up and take notice.

WS, This is the cool thing about iTunes. At least you can just buy one song without having to shell out for an entire album.

I think I'm the opposite. the sound, the voice... very important. But what makes me set the button to replay is the lyrics.

No, Tim, I USED to not like the Beatles. Now that I've been getting their German-language fan newsletter, they seem almost life-like. Can't believe I forgot to thank you for the subscription.

I can't understand the lyrics half the time so I have to like the music first.

Weiss ich nicht was sagen sie aus.
