Just enjoyed a video clip of Emmylou Harris performing Steve Goodman's song "Yellow Coat."
Here's the link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3D3V879EvFU..
. a great interpretation/performance
of the song. The song itself reminds me somewhat of Leonard Cohen's "Famous Blue Raincoat." Both songs make use of apparel and there are similarities in the way questions and memories are employed. While not considering "Yellow Coat" to be nearly as excellent as "Famous Blue Raincoat," I like the song.
