Song of the Day: This Wind by The Tallest Man on Earth


There are no doubt people who can't stand his voice. I can't hold that against you if that's the case, but I happen to be of the mind that it's one of the more beautiful voices.

There are a great many of his songs that I adore, but I don't hear people talk much about this one, and it's one of my favorites, so here it is.

Like many of his songs, This Wind is stripped down. Just the voice and the banjo. And still, that last verse, the delivery on the second refrain of "and they'll send in the clowns when you're lost" gives me goosebumps every time.
