You Gotta Hear This!

Bye Bye, Montreal

When I lived downtown in the big city, I played in a band.  After practice, I would drive towards the lake with a coffee and just sit.  It would be cold, leaf-less, and lonely.  And a favourite radio channel of mine, CBC Radio 2, played this song once as I fled the condo towers and sped through bare trees and old homes of High Park.  This song is how I felt back then.

I shouldn’t say I was lonely, because I wasn’t, (although I suppose I was).  There was a feeling of deep Nostalgia, longing, loss, change.

This song is beautiful, simple, haunting and perfectly captures something I was going through.  It helped me, I think, in a weird way, to get through a very weird time in my life.  Maybe it will help you too.
