I've never really given much thought to whether I have a "favorite" song. Different music affects me in different ways and what I love to hear usually depends on the mood I'm in.
But after stumbling across this on my iPod the other day and listening to it for the first time in a very long time, I realized that it might be a serious contender for my all-time favorite song -- mostly because it moves me in ways I simply can't describe. Every moment of it -- every note, every word, every melody -- just hurts and heals and makes you believe you could physically drift away on it. This is the rarest of music: the kind you can feel -- and feel in the deepest parts of your soul.
Although this isn't a professional video, it barely matters what the visuals are. Just close your eyes and listen.
Here's Fiona Apple's Sullen Girl.
