Do not let the fire die/Neither let it burn too bright

This Richard Shindell song has been haunting me ever since I really listened to it for the first time yesterday, when it came up on a random music mix: “You Stay Here” (includes sound file of the complete song).

Shindell may be becoming my favorite songwriter. A lovely voice, and he a breathtaking ability to tell full stories in just a few verses.

– “Che Guevara T-Shirt
– “Arrowhead
– “Courier
– “Waist Deep in the Big Muddy

I’m also deeply fond of “Fenario,” So Says the Whippoorwill,” Hazel’s House,” and “There Goes Mavis,” but there are no sound clips for those.

Random linkiness:
