Recordings

"If I die before I learn to speak/Can money pay for all the days I lived awake but half asleep?" O'Connor mumbles to himself before finally working up the guts to sing, "I've been downhearted, baby, ever since the day we met," in his own voice for once, to overtly claim B.B.'s despair as his own. It's a courageous, riveting moment that anyone with a heart or what's left of one will want to wallow in again and again.

P.S. The rest of Rocket is a pleasure if nowhere near the inspiration that recommends its hit single. Myself, I can't linger past track three long enough to make the final call. But so what? Millions of people bought In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida for one song, and if they're sorry now, they're not talking.
