Here’s an anthem, perfect for today, that jubilantly declares that snow is gone. Though Josh Ritter may be right, we Chicagoans wear our shirtsleeves with suspicion today; waiting for another seasonal sucker punch. Let’s hope we can listen to this song for the next few months without irony.
Snow Is Gone, Josh Ritter
A repeat feature in this hip-hop leaning blog, Josh Ritter is far and away one of the better singer-songwriters out there. In terms of pure storytelling craft, I don’t think there’s a song I’ve heard in the last year that beats The Temptation of Adam. For any of you with even a tinge of appreciation for folk, he is highly recommended.
