  • The Stranger Song is my favorite. It’s heartbreaking, haunting, and so poetic. Love the line “Like any dealer he was watching for the card that is so high and wild he’ll never need to deal another. He was just some Joseph looking for a manger.” Genius. Not to mention that the song is used brilliantly in McCabe and Mrs. Miller…perfect film/perfect song.

  • I don’t think that any song beats out my favorite “I Tried to Leave You,” but most of that revolves around the subject matter, which always seems relevant. It’s hard not to always have one foot out the door around these parts, which is precisely why I love this song so much.
