A good woman will pick you apart

“A good woman will pick you apart
A box full of suggestions for your possible heart
But you may be offended and you may be afraid
But don’t walk away, don’t walk away”

— Bright Eyes, “Landlocked Blues”

I like Bright Eyes a lot lately. As music and as poetry. Does Conor Oberst remind anyone of a young Townes Van Zandt, or is it just me?

  1. Good call. That never occurred to me, but when I listen to Landlocked Blues and a few others, it’s undeniable.

    I felt the same way when a journalist compared Hayden to Neil Young. I’m not a big Neil Young fan, but I could definitely appreciate the similarity.
