I couldn’t agree more. A friend bought me “White Ladder” as a birthday gift when it came out. It’s a great album, but that was the song that most grabbed me. I also couldn’t believe it was a Soft Cell tune, and I really don’t care for the original. Gray’s cover reminds me of some of Van Morrison’s long, poetic “rambles” (and I mean that in a complimentary fashion), like his “Sweet Thing”. I saw David Gray open for Shawn Colvin many years ago (like, 10) and I was duly impressed. Great stuff.

"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.
