Part 22 of my youtube countdown features the modern legend Lucinda Williams and her miraculous Byrds-esque folk jam, Drunken Angel. This song, about dead country singer Blaze Foley, is like the greatest song Tom Petty never wrote. It’s one of those beautiful syncopated guitar pop gems with a gorgeous melody and wonderfully sung lyrics from Lucinda. This is just one of those songs where I can’t help but hit the replay button over and over, and you will too, enjoy.
