Well we leave you this week dear readers with one of those lovely little desk concerts (concerts you can watch at your desk) from NPR, this time featuring My Morning Jacket’s Jim James who does three tunes including ‘I’m Amazed, Same Old Lie’ and the politically astute ‘Over and Over.’ As NPR put it, “After 20-some odd years of putting out music, Jim James is full of fervor and compassion for others as he sings, “How can we make / The same mistakes / and still carry on / Living the same we did yesterday / Have we learned nothing at all?“” Have a good one.
