And so another musician dies and we look to their music for comfort. I had read about Grant Hart dying of cancer at 56 and while I knew of Hüsker Dü, I'd never really listened to their music. It took Chris from the Burn A Million Miles playlist to hip me to this track.
I've written about depression before on this list and no doubt will write about it again. This track is perhaps one of the best representations of what it feels like that I've heard, you can check out and relate to the lyrics here.
There's something abut a stripped down track - a guitar and a plaintive vocal delivery just telling it how it is, that resonates deeply. And as always - if you know that someone else "get's it" - that if someone does indeed know how it feels - then it makes "it" just that tiny bit better.
And that's what this playlist is all about.

About the Curator - Andrew McCluskey
The first visual memory I have is that of the white upright piano in Singapore, Hell and the dark forces lived at the bottom, Heaven and the Angels at the top. They would play battles through my fingers and I was hooked.
Although I've always played, I haven't always been a musician. Most of my twenties were spent working with people, buying and selling and learning how the world works. It was in my thirties that I came to America and focused on music and began to develop music2work2.
