30 Songs in 30 Days, Day 19 - A song from your favorite album

I had intended to play my favorite song from my favorite band in this category until I realized, that wasn't from my favorite album!

My favorite albums are ones that I can listen to over and over and they never get old. I don't have to skip any songs because they're all perfect.

U2-The Joshua Tree
Nirvana-Unplugged in New York
Mumford&Sons-Babel

Jeff Buckley's Grace falls into this category.

Grace really changed the way I looked at music. I love it when that happens.

  3. Love Jeff Buckley :3 My fave of his is 'Lover, You Should've Come Over', although Grace is completely perfect. I love every song on that album.

    1. All the ones you hear are takes on Buckley's 1994 version of the original by Leonard Cohen. Jeff Buckley is who made the song what it is today.

      He died too young, in Memphis, in 1997.

    1. I always wonder, what if I had never discovered this artist, or that artist? I can't imagine a musical landscape without Jeff Buckley.

  6. An excellent selection, Mitch. I have always loved this song. And such an appropriate album title for this blog.

  7. Hadn't heard of this accomplished musician before. But the name, tenor range --had to check. My gosh, he looked and sounded so much like his father, who was one of my favorite poet-singers in the 60s. I sure learn here.

    1. And I'm always learning from you, Geo., since I didn't know that about his father... So interesting. One of the many awesome things about blogging. :)

  8. Embarrassed to say that I don't know Jeff Buckley, but this is a gorgeous sounding video.

    I am married to a musician. I hardly ever listen to other music & I think that should probably change sometime soon.

    1. It's never too late to add new music to your listening experience, lol! It seems I'm always discovering new TO ME artists who have been around forever, and I'm like, why didn't someone tell me about this?! :)

    1. Me too! I wonder if we'll ever know the full effects of their impact on music. They changed everything.
