"Let Me Down" — Tony Kevin Jr.


I was first introduced to this song by the guy singing it, live and wearing a ridiculous poncho, on an island outside of Seattle. Trees to my front, water at my back. A tiny replacement band providing the set of music and a bunch of reverent listeners sprawled all over the grass, drinking it in. When he got to the first "Give me one more chance to let you down ..." part, everybody was singing it along with him. It kept happening, too. Someday I hope to blame this song ... and that moment alone ... for making me up and move to the Pacific Northwest. Because you never know.
