You haven't met me; I am the only son.
If you want a song for sitting with your eyes closed and just letting the music flow over you, listen to Scala & Kolacny Brothers' cover of "The Blower's Daughter," by Damien Rice.
If you want one that will wrench your insides and give you chills all over, listen to "Dust Bowl Dance" from Mumford & Sons' album Sigh No More.
I'm listening to a lovely playlist that includes a lot of Mumford & Sons, Simon & Garfunkel, Keane, Rufus Wainwright, Muse, Regina Spektor, and Fiona Apple. Those two songs came up in that order, and as always, I was just knocked out by them. Gorgeous... Heartbreaking. Music is incredible.
