John Prine – “I Remember Everything”

Words will never properly articulate the importance of John Prine. His songwriting carved the heart right from the chest, often hitting at the core of humanity’s sorrow with a razor sharpness. His very last song ever is appropriately called “I Remember Everything,” a soft crackling ballad reflecting back on his entire life.

“I remember everything / Things I can’t forget,” he sings, a wistful sparkle in his eye. “The way you turned and smiled on me /On the night that we first met.”

He paints with raw subtlety. His images are precise, alluring, and magical. It’ll knock you off your feet. Guaranteed.
