Like a lot of people, for a while I thought this was a Bonnie Raitt song. Everybody has covered this John Prine track, but hers is often the definitive version. As you may have noticed with a lot of the other SOTDs, I really appreciate a simple song. This song is about as simple and formulaic as it gets, but in that, it get’s its emotional resonance. It’s hard not to sing along with the chorus, and it’s hard not to feel, what the singer feels. If that isn’t what music is about, I don’t really know what is.
