Michael Brown, songwriter and pianist for the Left Banke, died on March 19th. There have been a couple nice tributes on WFMU this past week, including Bob Brainen's show on Saturday morning.
"I had a date with a pretty ballerina/Her hair so brilliant that it hurt my eyes..."
The second verse ends with two lines that are as sad and cryptic as any in pop music:
"Somewhere a mountain is moving/Afraid it's moving without me."
(You can hear it here. Thanks to Jeff Peter for introducing me to the Left Banke.)
