Song of the Week: “Carolina in My Mind” – James Taylor

10 Oct

I thought it was interesting that the ten-year memorial for 9/11 featured two artists whose heydays occurred around 40 years earlier. Clearly, James Taylor and Paul Simon got picked over Lady Gaga and Lil Wayne et al. because their music better represented the tone of the event, and certainly meant more in the lives of those lost. I think the pop charts don’t have the patience anymore for that kind of songwriter because we as listeners don’t have the patience to sit through it. Anyway, this week’s tune is my favorite from James Taylor.
