56. James Taylor - Fire and Rain

Found on: Sweet Baby James (1970)
Picked by: WA

JT's gentle reaction to a friend's death is aural equivalent being wrapped up in a blanket on the couch with a hot beverage and a good book on a snowy day. This is music at its most powerful, making something almost joyful out of sadness, not by ignoring but by facing and embracing it.
