“Or if today is all I have to live…”

Someone will be digging for tunes online 40 years from now, find this, and be soooo happy. Such a special record; warm, and built on the shoulders of giants.

I don’t know what the weather will be 2:13 – 2:58

“I never love you like I can”

The chorus hits 3 times in a song that is only 2:47. I’m choosing the middle as the best part so that you recognize how great the chorus is after the first time, and still get another hit before the song is over. So bueno.

Like I Can 1:33 – 1:52

From The Lonely Hour, released through Capitol Records, 2014

0168 – Lil Silva feat. Banks – Right For You @ 1:12

Right for You 0:37 – 1:32
