I have a suspicion that I wrote about this song before, but I can’t find where I did. (It may have been on my old blog.) Regardless, I love the way that Ms. Nash can’t seem to figure out how to play the piano through the first verse of the song. She plays the same two notes, repeatedly, and then – just after the chorus ends for the first time – what she’s been trying to play finally comes to her in a wave.
If you ask me – despite chronicling the obvious beginning of the end of a relationship – it sounds glorious.
