I have to admit, that after hearing this song, not only did it become one of my MOST favorite songs, she became one of my favorite performers. Great composition! Neil Young-eat your heart out! Great harmonica; great everything!
I think this song is her masterpiece: the atmospheric instrumental start, the way it slowly builds, the lyrics, the echoey haunting vocals, the way the harmonica and strings come in at the end, the whole feel of the song - just stunning.
I love this song. It has the perfect feel of the end of the night/early morning, lounging in a bar as it's closing and it's reflected beautifully with the lyrics. I love the echo-like vocals and the two verses. It creates a perfect image of the two people and the urge to know somebody and feel intimacy at the end of a lonely night (it's how it makes me feel, anyway). And I love how it ends with 'you were always on my mind' and the long section of music. It's such a great choice for a closer, and the opening track is perfectly chosen also.
