He was one of the greats. A National Treasure, really.

In no particular order, here are 5 of my favorite songs of his:
All the Best
Speed of the Sound of Loneliness
Far From Me

Such heart, such feeling, such a way with simple words. Thanks for noting the passing of someone who should have been an even bigger star than he was already.

This is real, from the heart, not “popified”, irony-filled country music. WXPN in Phildelphia is doing 2 hour-long tributes, playing many of John’s great songs and their interviews with him from over the years. Worth the streaming listen.
