Great song by Phil!
I love Iris DeMent. Was lucky enough to hear her play in my little town not long after the 2016 election. She brought a lot of peace and consolation and humor and humanity. "Let The Mystery Be" is one my favorite songs of hers, and Mix just did a feature on it. More sublime than jear-terk, I guess. (Infamous Angel would sound great in surround, by the way.)Now that you mention Iris Dement...yes, that's pretty stark, dark stuff, cuts right to the heart of the matters. "My Life" was the kind of country single that scared country radio away, listeners following, because unlike a piece of crap like "Honey" it was REAL--no messing around with this woman. John Denver could be like that, too, and I think that bothered folks seduced by "Take Me Home, Country Roads" and "Thank God I'm (not) a Country Boy." Denver may have seemed slightly silly, addled and stoned, but underneath, like Roger Miller, he harbored some serious, depressive demons. So do a lot of guys who smile too much, me suspects.
For Someone Special - Doobie Brothers:Their best track.

It's supposed to be about Alexander "Skip" Spence of Moby Grape and Jefferson Airplane, who discovered them.
To further break it down, it’s the high voices that bring the rush, coming in at 3:57 after the quiet section. Just amazing emotion pours from that music. Thanks for reminding me of this one QL!!
