Song of the Day, July 20: I Thought That We Said Goodbye by Teddy Thompson and Kelly Jones

ThompsonJonesGoodbyeToday’s song is standout on a charming mini-masterpiece. After a couple of years of occasional harmonizing at each other’s shows, Teddy Thompson and Kelly Jones got together to record an album. The result, Little Windows, is a delightful half hour of country-tinged pop. The pair’s harmonies are flawless and their pop approaches blend nicely.

The songs are a mix of romantic joy and heartbreak. Landing on the darker side between the two is one of the best, I Thought That We Said Goodbye. The couple telling the tale both know that the romance is over, but somehow they can’t manage to bring things to a close. Quietly intoned over an aching acoustic guitar, it’s a perfect package.

Enjoy this sad gem today.
