I was having a hard time coming up with a good theme song for a new year and, all of a sudden, this one came to me and it seemed perfect.
I first heard this song as a Dar Williams cover on WFUV and, even though intellectually it feels a little . . . what? . . . cliche? I really like it. It kinda gets me every time. In poking around to find this link for you, discovered a Ray Davies/Bruce Springsteen version, a Pearl Jam version and a Fountains of Wayne version so I guess I'm not the only one who's a fan.
Enjoy! And Happy New Year!!
