Because I have – clearly – been doing pretty much anything other than blogging, I was playing around in my iPod library this morning when I randomly clicked on the "Most Played" column.
I was genuinely, seriously, shockingly surprised that the clear winner was….drum roll please:
Natalie Merchant's cover of Neil Young's After the Gold Rush.
I hunted around for a video of her singing it but alas, there was none.
There was, however, this version of the man himself singing it:
And then I found this kinda-sorta-maybe-related little gem. Natalie Merchant and Michael Stipe singing one of my favorite John Prine songs…
With luck, I'll be back with our regularly scheduled programming tomorrow, but in the meantime, what's your "most played?"
