Cowboy Junkies--Cause Cheap is How I Feel

Listen to that harmonica intro...

I've listened to this song a hundred times, but it's not until today that I really listened to that intro and really appreciated how hard it is to play, and just how soulful it is, and how important it is to the song, setting the mood and the stage for the story that comes.

More and more music is opening up doors to my mind, helping me see and discover nuances in the world that I just either didn't notice, wasn't privy to, or that now is simply time for me to notice.

But the one thing I've said over and over again is what an underrated songwriter Michael Timmins is. Listen to this song and just try to figure out how he wrote it.
