    I met my soon-to-be wife in the fall, and Nick Drake's music is my absolute favorite to listen to when the leaves are changing color, the skies are a little gray, and there's a nip in the air. When this comes on during a cloudy day, it's like a blanket has been wrapped around me. What a powerful piece of music!
