Some Good Music

Over the past month or two I’ve bought a couple of movie soundtracks that have had a number of really good songs on them. On the Elizabethtown soundtrack (vol. 1) are two songs that have been especially moving for me. One is io (This Time Around) by Helen Stellar – which you can hear on the website – and the other is Hard Times by Eastmountainsouth.

No other comment, they’re just good!

Hard Times
let us pause in life’s pleasures and count its many tears
while we all sup sorrow with the poor
there’s a song that will linger forever in our ears
oh, hard times come again no more

’tis a song… a sigh of the weary
hard times… hard times come again no more
many days you have lingered around my cabin door
oh… hard times come again no more

while we seek mirth and beauty and music light and gay
there are frail ones fainting at the door
though their voices are silent their pleading looks will say
oh, hard times come again no more

’tis a song… a sigh of the weary
hard times… hard times come again no more
many days you have lingered around my cabin door
oh, hard times come again no more

’tis a sigh that is wafted across the troubled wave
’tis a wail that is heard upon the shore
’tis a dirge that is murmured around the lowly grave
oh, hard times come again no more

’tis a song…a sigh of the weary
hard times… hard times come again no more
many days you have lingered around my cabin door
oh, hard times come again no more
oh, hard times come again no more
