You Are the Best Thing
“♫ Baby, it’s been a long day, baby/ things ain’t been going my way/ and now I need you here to clear my mind all the time […] ♫”
Have you ever just needed to hear a song to save your day? On Thursday, I was in the middle of another long shift and You Are the Best Thing played as my lovely wife came into my mind, I smiled— and immediately Ray’s song saved my night.
I love those moments in life when music literally saves your life. And this album version has that Stax soulful sound that’s so uplifting making “Best Thing” my favorite Ray Lamontagne song. Love those horns and harmonies sounds like Heaven to me.
Congratulations to Ray—two songs in the first week of 2012. If you haven’t had the pleasure, do yourself a favor and discover the acoustically soulful flavor of one Ray Lamontagne.
