Music is very important to Dale and I, as you probably know. He’s a singer in a band, of course. And we listen to music a lot in our home. Our tastes aren’t always the same but luckily I’m the only one who knows how to operate Spotify and our Sonos speakers. Ha!
Seriously, though, we listen to a lot of classic rock, folk, and oldies. Last Friday when we were on the deck I had a playlist on shuffle and the song The Weight by The Band came on. We were trying to figure out one of the lines and I looked up the lyrics and then we were talking about how much we both really love the song and the meaning behind it . . . that idea of taking the weight off of someone else and carrying it for them when you are able.
Dale did some extra googling on his own the next morning and he stumbled across a YouTube video of this song recorded by Playing for Change. It was done last September in celebration of the 50th anniversary of the song. It’s gorgeous and uplifting and I love it. I hope it brings you some comfort and solace right now the way it has for us.
