I can do a whole day with nothing but Nick Drake and Eliott Smith playing round and round.

Sorry haresfur....I'm gonna mess with that ratio of yours as I just bumped my 9 to a 10.  :-)

I'm amazed how seemingly simple this song is and yet it conjures up a lot of complicated emotions.  And much cheaper to listen to this song for 4:46 than spend time on a shrink's couch, eh?  PEACE

I wish I was a hacker so I could give this a 20 rating.

Nick Drake - how did I never know about you until RP?  Your music is sublime, yet disturbed, somewhere between happy and sad without being either. I think your early death adds a weight to your music that wouldn't be there otherwise, and I'm sorry to say, this sadness does make your music better.  Because who really wants 100% happy and only happy music all the time? I'm sorry your death ended your physical days on earth - and I for one and I'm sure many more of us RPsters can hear your music when we see the simple things in life.  Birds chirping, flying in the clouds, floating, then breaking apart, like trees losing their leaves, beautiful decay, harmony in nature not needing anything we (as in humankind) can give it, just taking moments from here and there and enjoying the little bits of amazement all about us. Here's to your music surviving time.

Long Live RP!



 
I too was late to Nick Drake. Years ago I found a boxed set of ND on eBay and it was a good decision. I often put the whole set on shuffle play.

A wonderful waltz song, still fresh, inspired, poetic and tender over the years.

Gorgeous song. I always overthought things as a kid, made what I considered to be mature decisions and later realized that it's natural to make mistakes, and you can actually miss out on a lot of valuable experiences by trying to jump straight to philosophies you've learnt by wrote rather than by trial and error. This song really resonates with me on that level, dunno if that's what he's getting at.

If hearing this for the first time, I'd really like it. Like what DID happen when I first heard it. After 12,000 times...not so much. I do still appreciate this in the context of the time in which music is currently stale and stifling. This is still refreshing compared to what is popular today.

Interesting post.  From left field, but interesting, nonetheless.
