Today's "Best Song Ever"

The Flying Burrito Brothers "Dark End of the Street"

I think country loses when it stops being about depression and death. I think we all lose when this happens. Gram Parsons would have never let this happen. "Dark End Of The Street" is the kind of country song people wrote in there moments of drunken reprieve. Songs sung by religious folk who couldn't pull it together in their drunken haze. Songs for people fighting against the urge to be outlaws.
