It's Tuesday, most of us are going back to work after the long bank holiday weekend and are feeling miserable...so it's apt that I've chosen Elliott Smith for my Tuesday Blues.
For those who don't know about Elliott Smith, you've missed a absolute gem of a folk/punk singer songwriter who was, and still is a massive influence on others. He rose from obscurity after his song, "Miss Misery" was nominated for a Academy Award after being featured in "Good Will Hunting". His ghostly, vulnerable singing style doesn't appeal to everyone, but if you fancy an aperitif of melancholy you should try and have Mr Smith in your life!
Unfortunately, like many of the musical greats, he had his demons, and he sadly ended his life by killing himself
So on that cheery note, here are a couple of tracks to hopefully pick you up...
Elliott Smith - Twilight
Elliott Smith - Thirteen
...I got the Tuesday Blues because Saturday is so far away! Get more here!
TUESDAY BLUES! Elliott Smith - Between The Bars
