#316: Pink Moon by Nick Drake

10.24.2011


Pink Moon by Nick Drake (1972)

Favorite Track(s): "Pink Moon" and "Place to Be" and "Which Will" and "Parasite"

Thoughts: Another 1972 album! And from the fabulous Nick Drake. I think I became familiar with Nick from movie soundtracks. His song "Black Eyed Dog" in Practical Magic (1998)--the tears! And then "One of These Things First" from Garden State (2004)--which I used in a tribute video to my grandfather. This was his 3rd and final studio album released before his death.

This is acoustic heaven. It makes me want to be in front of my fireplace with tea and blankets and my cat as it rains outside on the ivy.

Is This Better Than Help!?: It's less varied, but it's certainly as good.
