A song for you:
My upstairs neighbor has been playing Veedon Fleece by Van Morrison on repeat, nightly, for the last six months. Sad, twangy, heartbreak music! Which i adore. And too, i adore Van Morrison, but it’s taken me a good, solid hour of deep investigative work to finally figure out which album she’s been playing. iTunes didn’t have it. Google wouldn’t recognize any of the lyric possibilities i entered into its search engine. And then there’s allmusic.com — where i spent forty-five minutes of my weekend listening to thirty second clips from every single song VM put out between ’67 & ’79. But! Finally! I’ve found what i’ve been looking for. And it’s awesome. It makes me feel moony and inspired so THANK YOU, upstairs neighbor! You play your music loud and late, but hey, you’ve got great taste.
