I have saved hundreds of live-music youtubes over the years and it’s time for a year-end clearout. I try to play music on Wednesday nights but fall asleep half the time, and other times I play them on Tuesday by mistake. So hardy har har, 2020, these are the best of what I have left – starting with the sultry goddess of rock:

Margo Timmins (born January 27, 1961) is the lead vocalist of the Canadian band Cowboy Junkies. She is the sister of Michael Timmins, the band’s lead guitarist, and Peter Timmins, the band’s drummer. Her ethereal vocals, paired with the band’s spare and low-key instrumentation played at a relaxed pace, lend the band its unique atmospheric sound.

A candle burning for everything I’ve ever wanted
A tattoo burned for everything I’ve ever wanted and lost
I had a long list of names that I kept in my back pocket,
but I’ve cut it down to one and your name’s at the top

Won’t you share a common disaster?
Share with me a common disaster
A common disaster

I found myself a friend,
but he’s crooked as a stick in water
So now I’m writing fairy tales
to catch the spirit of revenge
He’s got a plan to steal my little sister,
but I’m not too concerned
’cause I will get him in the end

Won’t you share a common disaster?
Share with me a common disaster
A common disaster

Going to find me someone to share
A common disaster
Run away with me from a life so cramped and dull
Not worry too much about the happily-ever-after
Just keep the Caddy moving
’til we’re well beyond that hill

Won’t you share a common disaster?
Share with me a common disaster
A common disaster
