LISTENING: judy collins, in my life
you can probably find this gem for $1-$5 at your local used record store. i can’t stress how worthwhile it is, full of amazing covers (leonard cohen, the beatles, randy newman, bob dylan, mimi & richard farina) and show tunes from brecht. she even uses the phrase “the sons of the ass licking dying regime” at one point. it’s deliciously jarring, every time i hear it. also, I JUST WANT TO JOIN HER IN THIS PERFECT/WEIRD SPOT. so inviting!

i didn’t own this record as a youth, even though i loved loved loved the hit single. WHAT A FOOL I WAS. i got into veruca salt instead. WRONG FEMALE-FRONTED, HARMONY-BASED BAND. jesus, mary and joseph, i was way off.
