Thread Name: Richard Thompson: Your Favourite Song?
Subject: RE: Richard Thompson: Your Favourite Song?
oh lordy. so far as i can tell, the man can do no wrong. tho i must say, i like greg brown's "vincent" (on "the live one") better than richard's, i can't say precisely why. i always felt like richard writes about the same dolorous city tom waits visits in his songs. i like the real bleak ones, like "end of the rainbow"...how gloomy can you get? plus the intro is great, it sneaks up on yeh.
