Ah, Music Mondays, always such fun because I never know exactly what song I might give you. If you’ve been following my Music Mondays, looking for a common genre, theme, etc, and find one, let me know! 🙂 😉
This week I’m sharing a treasure that I heard via YouTube. When autoplay is on, you just never know if you might end up listening to a new favorite and that’s what “Danko/Manuel” is. When the music begins, a lone drummer is providing a simple beat, followed by the base, and then the lead guitar riffs that I find echo in my head long after hearing it. Add Jason Isbell’s voice singing haunting words and this is a song that sticks with you.
The song was written as a tribute to Rick Danko and Richard Manuel, members of The Band, who died far too young.
Can you hear that singing? Sounds like gold.
Maybe I can only hear it in my head.
