Josh Ritter - Kathleen
A friend recommended this song to me on a “mixed tape” (ok it was a cd) he made me and said he loved it because of the line “All the other girls here are stars, you are the northern lights”.
This week, with all the news of solar storms and the increased occurences of northern lights - this song would pop into my mind. As beautiful as a sky full of stars is on a clear night, those who have sen northern lights can attest to the fact that they are a spectacular sight that makes the stars seem shabby and insignificant.
Anyone who has has been smacked over the head with love so hard that everyone else in the room, pales in comparison and seems to disappear, can relate to this feeling.
