Spreading the Good – City and Colour
December 17, 2010
“You need not to climb mountaintops,
You need not to cross the sea,
You need not to find a cure for everything that makes you weak.
You need not to reach for the stars when life becomes so dark,
And when the wind does blow against the grain,
You must follow your heart,
You must follow your heart.”

I can always ferret out a Jeff Buckley influence. With some googling, I found an interview with the guy behind City and Colour, Dallas Green (get it? City? Colour?), in which he states that his favorite singer of all time is, in fact, Jeff.
