95 Songs of Summer, #43 - "Seven Year Ache" (1981)

Those who know me well know that Rosanne Cash is one of the charter members of my personal music pantheon.  That "exalted" status really began with this song, without question one of her greatest, not to mention one of the great songs of the last few decades.

Cash has grown enormously as a musician and writer over the years, but I'm not sure that she's ever topped the perfection of this one.  Perfect in tone, in rhythm, in any way you can possibly define the term.

"Seven Year Ache," Rosanne Cash, from the summer of 1981.
