Day 19: A song from your favorite album

As with singers and bands and songs, I have a lot of “favorite” albums. Jeff Buckley’s Grace holds kind of a special place for me, though, for two reasons. First, it’s the only studio album he ever made. Buckley died in a swimming accident after his first big tour; while collaborations and bootlegs and demos abound, this is the only full, produced album we’ll ever have from him. Second, it’s a perfect album. There aren’t many of those; even the best bands have songs that don’t quite work, tracks that don’t fit organically with the rest of the album. Not this one, though; every song on Grace is beautiful, powerful, and brilliantly performed. I could pick any track from the album and it’d be one I love, but I chose “Last Goodbye.”
