Kristen Hersh - Your Ghost
Kristen Hersh, “Your Ghost”
Call it a Saturday favorite songs project, if you will. Or if you’re interested in calling things things.
I have my lists of favorite songs, mostly by Neil Young, the Beatles, etc., but there’s a whole second list of songs I love that I never get to say I love because people say what’s your favorite song, and I think “Like a Hurricane,” by Neil Young, and miss Frank Sinatra . . .
So consider the next few posts as me making amends.
Hersh’s “Your Ghost” is wonderful on many levels: evocative lyrics, a guest appearance by Michael Stipe, and a chord sequence of three chords done in a revolving four chord sequence (if you’re a guitar player you’ll understand, it’s wonderfully difficult to keep up with while remaining totally simple).
