Back in 2005, Josh Rouse released an album called ‘Nashville’ which along with its predecessor ‘1972’ (great year) many consider to be the greatest musical achievements of his life – laidback almost dreamlike in its production, it was one of those albums for me that I could just listen to on rotation over and over again (and I did, much to the irritation of my then partner). While it’s difficult to highlight a single track, ‘Streetlights’ still makes the hairs on the back of my neck stand up – just listen to that production. According to the YouTube comments underneath it, this is at least one person’s “most favorite song on the planet”.
