Nick Drake

Today looks and feels like Nick Drake's "From the Morning" off of Pink Moon. I don't know why, but his music always feels like fall to me, and today with the warmth of the sun it does so all that much more.

We covered that tune at a coffeehouse show ("we" being me and some people from work in this case). When you play something, it tends to dull the emotional effect of the song. It's very easy to become a technician. Where's the next change? What feel should it have here? And you miss the beauty that made you want to play music in the first place. But not with this song, all of it's beauty shone through to me.
