I chose this version of “Murdered in the City” by Concord, N.C. (holla!) natives The Avett Brothers because the crowd reaction was similar to mine the first time I heard it.
At the first line, there’s a laugh; images of Swayze’s Next of Kin come to mind and it brings a smile to the face. But by the time you get to the end …
“Always remember there was nothing worth sharing like the love that let us share our name …”
I’ve listened to this song for months now and it still brings tears to my eyes. Literally.
The sentiment seems fitting for this week and, hopefully, all the weeks to come.
