Friday Night: Sky Blue and Black

music, rock, pop

Now I wouldn’t consider myself a groupie (and that would depend on the definition of groupie)…but I’m a fan.  A Large One.  “Running on Empty.” The Pretender.”  “Stay Just a Little Bit Longer.”  “Here Come Those Tears Again. “You’re A Friend.” “Rosie.” And I can go on and on, yet…Yet, somehow, I’ve never heard this song.  Shaking my head in wonder.  How’s that possible?

And if you’re a purist, here’s Jackson Browne’s acoustic version of the same song (and a far superior version in my opinion) to ease you into the weekend:

  5. Lovely song, David. I love Jackson Browne as well — was this song written later on? I never heard it before either. Its lovely but full of regret, a sad song as some of the best are.

  9. “If you ever need holding, call my name and I’ll be there.” This line gets me every time. Jackson Brown, Linda Ronstadt, James Taylor—these were the friends I took with me from high school to college to keep me company. Thanks for the reminder.
