Bright colored pinwheels go 'round in my head.

To be honest, I’ve been a little obsessed with “Two Lives.” Karen’s voice is so perfectly melancholy, and the oboe simultaneously soars and cries. I’m going through something kind of similar in my real life, so the whole song really resonates with me.

I think Bonnie Raitt covered this song....always wonder if she had heard Karen's version and what she thought of it. Bonnie was on the Anne Murray documentary talking about Anne....
