In Tall Buildings

Here is a song I urge you to purchase as an mp3. (It’s only .99! And I don’t think it’s available on an album.) It’s one that Philip and I just love. Whenever it comes on, we both stop whatever we happen to be doing and just sit down and listen to it.

If you like it, you can purchase it here.  Select ‘In Tall Buildings’.

We heard Gillian Welch perfom this song live, and the audience was visibly moved–us included!  As Gillian says in her introduction, it’s one that will make people want to quit their jobs and move to the country.  So very touching, and a sad commentary on our wealth-driven society. If you’ve never heard Gillian Welch and David Rawlings, allow me to introduce you to the finest bluegrass pair living!! Their soulful harmonies are some of the most hauting music I’ve ever heard. (And the best CD–in my opinion–is Revival.  Maybe it’s just because we listened to that one all through our engagement! :)

    My father loves Gillian Welch, and performs some of her songs with his music partner (they form a cletic/folk duo that is well received back home). I will have to give this song a listen!

  2. That’s so neat, Elizabeth! You certainly come from a musical family…I’d love to hear your dad perform. Hope you like the song! :)
    Do they like ‘One and Only’? That’s Philip’s favorite…
