for the sad times in my life – songs by Emmylou Harris. She strikes the right balance between melancholy and a pragmatic view of the situation. Lately these songs have gotten a lot of play:
Two More Bottles of Wine;
Calling My Children Home;
Can You Hear Me Now;
One of These Days;
The Darkest Hour is Just Before Dawn; and
Sweet Old World
What would we do without music? It’s like having a good friend who understands what you are going through and offers solace without judgement or advice.
