While I doubt that many of you get music tips from NPR, I have to admit that prior to their post "Heavy Rotation: 5 Songs Public Radio Can't Stop Playing"
, I had been unaware of The Milk Carton Kids
(an earlier NPR Tiny Desk Concert
). If you listen to nothing else, I do hope you will give a listen to Hope of a Lifetime
, which (at the risk of editorializing) I must say is one of the most beautiful songs (and lyrics) that I have heard in a very long time.I'd like to dedicate the song to my entire family, who are grieving the death of our youngest daughter/sister/sister-in-law/wife/mother when a meth-fueled construction dump truck driver rear-ended her car sending it off of the interstate and ending the career of a superb Special Education teacher before it could even begin, this past June.
