A shiver in my bones, just thinking… about the weather

I was telling Marie yesterday about one of my favorite voices, Natalie Merchant. I had to think about which song to put up here – and it was a tough decision – because I love many of the 10,000 Maniacs songs and also Merchant’s solo work. She is very much a thinking person’s song-writer, and has a voice so ethereal I would listen to her sing the phone book. I went with this one because it was the first Maniacs song I heard, and I first heard it when I moved away from Florida and lived in Reston, VA for a year. The sky really was cold and gray, and I really did want to sink down into that four poster. OMG, Marie, I should make you a mix tape! How totally high school!

Got something to say? Don't be shy!


  1. Funny how we now have teh technology to make mixtapes effortlessly, and yet no one ever does it.

    I want everyone I know to make me a mixtape. But they won’t.
