I have had this album since grad school and recently heard it again on a roadtrip over the holidays, IL to TX - almost 2000 miles roundtrip. I dont understand French, those who do will get more out of it. A diverse collection of music on the car stereo hooked to my ipod. King Cole trio, Mati Haskell, Glenn Gould (32 Short Films about Glenn Gould soundtrack), Renee Olstead, Placido Domingo, Bing Crosby, Jennifer Zarine, Gabby Pahinui and Sonny Chillingworth from the Descendants soundtrack and Aaron Neville. And lots of silence too. I was about 40 miles from Muskogee, Oklahoma when I heard Townes Van Zandt singing "A friend said he knew where some easy money was, We robbed a man and brother did we fly, The posse caught up with me, drug me back to Muskogee....". It was not planned. With Muskogee in my rear view mirror I switched to Merle Haggard.

Adele's version got on my nerves a bit, but this is refreshing:

Thanks for the info Diane. Probably would have preferred more Shankar Tucker and less of the peripheral stuff....

That is very beautiful. Thank you.

This morning on the radio I heard this song of an artist I had not heard before Paolo Nutini.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1-rLR4zAJ3s
I rather liked what I heard and started listening to the lyrics and when the chorus came, surprise, there was such a ring of familiarity:

"It was in love I was created and in love is how I hope I die.
Yeah it was in love I was created and in love is how I hope I die."

Might this have been borrowed from or inspired on Leonard Cohen and Sharon Robbinson's Boogie Street?

"So come, my friends, be not afraid.
We are so lightly here.
It is in love that we are made;
In love we disappear."
"There’s no forsaking what you love ...."

sheffmark - All Nick's albums are perfection, and for years I thought "Bryter Later" was my favourite. However, ultimately I think "Five Leaves Left" may be the greatest .
P.S. Re your other post - I love the Kinks Sixties singles, and "Village Green Preservation Society".

Hi Tineke. Thanks for the Paulo Nutini. I really love his song, Autumn:

"my hero cried as we stood out there in the cold
like these autumn leaves, I don't have nothing to hold"

My friend who lives in India continues to send me some true gems. Check out this wonderful qawwali fusion. I could listen to these guys forever:
