Perfect Songs #3

Our Time In Eden is peak 10,000 Maniacs for me, some tremendous jangly folk tinged stuff there and what an album for Nathalie Merchant to bow out on.

However, as much as I love it as a coherent album, it’s Don’t Talk from In My Tribe that’s been getting me through this week.

Between the jangle, the thunderous drums and Merchant’s voice, the incredibly vivid lyrics, it’s just a complete ooooh of a song. Gets me every single time.

Did have a moment of “gosh, is it really that old now?” but given last week seems a lifetime away in 2020, understandable really.
