Turns out it was Nick Drake, whose ‘Things Behind the Sun’ was the eighth Song of the Day on Meet Me In Montauk, posted on August 1, 2008, just over five years ago today.
Looking back at that post, I’m happy to see that a Nick Drake fanatic stumbles upon it (20 days after it went live) and wrote effusively about his love of the man’s music. I love those little cyberspace connections.
I’m shocked that I never found an occasion to post ‘Pink Moon,’ the gorgeous little song that brought Drake back into the public consciousness (for those of us not as tuned in to his music as the aforementioned commenter) via a Volkswagen commercial in the late 2000’s.
But here you go… five years and five days and 1,844 songs later, a Nick Drake encore.
Pink moon is on its way
And none of you stand so tall
Pink moon gonna get you all
It’s a pink moon
It’s a pink, pink, pink, pink, pink moon
