What is your favorite song?
Now, I've never been good at answering "favorite" questions because I love so many, many things for such different, different reasons. So I usually have to simplify the question by adding "today" to the end of these questions.
What is my favorite song . . . today?
Still a tough one.
So I will go with the song that is playing and replaying in my head lately. It is not a catchy song; it was not a hit; it is not a toe-tapper.
It is not an upbeat song, and if you're flying high today, watching this video may heavy your heart for a time -- it does, me.
But it is almost literally a soul in song form, and I find that moving, beautiful, and unforgettable.
It is quite poignant to note that Jeff Buckley died in a freak accident shortly after this performance.
I know, I know . . . happy day! But my answer is the truth and it is who I am today.
