Has it really been almost a month since my last post? Geez…

I guess it has!  That’s not good.  

I intend to compile a “Best of ’09” list here eventually – there are some late albums that I’m still mulling over, but I think I’ve got a pretty solid group.  For the time being though, I can’t stop listening to the song “Graceland” by Paul Simon.  I downloaded the whole album tonight and hopefully I’ll branch out to other songs eventually.  

It’s that third chord in the verses that just kills me though.  It’s such a beautiful change.  The lyrics are incredible too…”She comes back to tell me shes gone/as if I didn’t know that, as if I didn’t know my own bed/as if I didn’t notice the way she brushed the hair from her forehead.”  That’s just poetry.
