Sorry if the comment seemed odd, I just cannot see…

Sorry if the comment seemed odd, I just cannot see how the intensifier ‘quintessential’ can be applied to the song.I wonder what people think are the qintessential summer night songs – or is that unquantifiable, more about the place than the music?
I aslo found the idea of a twelve year old listening to ‘not dark yet’ odd and disturbing although that may be my prejudice, as I see the song as being anguished beyond the realms of most normal youthful experience other than Holden C like grief, which would make sense.Anyway,we are probably both agreed that it is an almighty piece of music;brave,honest and vulnerable without an ounce of conceit.

You’re probaly right about the heat and the night – I had just viewed that fairly existenially.

"I love the relationship that anyone has with music: because there's something in us that is beyond the reach of words, something that eludes and defies our best attempts to spit it out. It's the best part of us, probably, the richest and strangest part..."
—Nick Hornby, Songbook
"Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel."
—Hunter S. Thompson

Mp3s are for sampling purposes, kinda like when they give you the cheese cube at Costco, knowing that you'll often go home with having bought the whole 7 lb. spiced Brie log. They are left up for a limited time. If you LIKE the music, go and support these artists, buy their schwag, go to their concerts, purchase their CDs/records and tell all your friends. Rock on.
