Song masterpiece of the day: Murdered in the city, Avett Brothers

This is the song that got me hooked on the Avett Brothers. That opening devastated me.

“If I get murdered in the city / don’t go revenging in my name.”

Who writes lyrics like that, anymore? I guess they do. Just a stunning and touching song, reminding us of the beauty inherent to the family bonds that sometimes disappear for no known reasons – hello, my estranged brother to whom I haven’t spoken in over 20 years…

Enjoy!
