Howdy all -
Just listened again to the DC version on my way to work, and yep, I still love it. It helps probably that I'm a fan of theirs, but I truly enjoy listening to it. Can't wait for the studio CH version, as I've enjoyed the various CH/solo versions I've heard as well, and I think it's intersting that I like both. That's not always the case with situations like this.
As far as the story behind the lyrics, it's apparently about Natalie's (I think) grandmother having alzheimers. That may be why they didn't mention Neil, as it's very personal to her. There's probably a thread about this from last summer somewhere in the forum.
Still, I would've liked some reference!
