Song of the Day, January 19: Best of Intentions by Patty Larkin

LarkinGreenBestIn 2013, after a series of family crises and losses, Patty Larkin crafted one of her finest albums. Still Green is a smart set of reflections on life, love, and loss. One of the standout tracks is Best of Intentions. Larkin opens with “The man in the hallway is cleaning up grief”, then uses metaphors of travel and lodging to explore the efforts we make and their consequences. Delivered in one of her finest vocals, the song is energetic and emotional, recognizing that things can’t always turn out like we expected — or wanted.

Enjoy this wonderful song today.
