Feelin’ Good Again

This is another good example of what I was said this morning at The Writing Catalog about the importance of images.

This song could be trite, sentimental in a sickly-sweet sort of way, and utterly forgettable despite the absolutely beautiful chord progression. It’s none of those things. It works, and I think it works for two reasons. First, it’s loaded with images. Second, it tells a story (and I have plenty to say about narrative eventually).

The music starts around 1:20; it’s worth a listen. This is the best combination of A/V I have been able to come up with; it’s difficult to find live performances of Robert Earl that have both good visual and good sound quality.
