i'm cheekie albay, a 29-year-old writer, entrepreneur, music freak, reformed party girl, and erstwhile chemistry major (true story).
for every moment in my life, there's a song on my mind. whether i'm heading to a party, being bored out of my wits, crushing on a new guy, attacking a sandwich, or crushing on a new guy while attacking a sandwich, i'm humming in my head.
Bon Iver - “I Can’t Make You Love Me / Nick of Time” (Bonnie Raitt cover, 2011)
I normally don’t post more than one audio post a day, but I almost had a heart attack upon discovering this song, so I’m going to make an exception.
My favorite karaoke number covered by my favorite brokenhearted bard. What did I do to deserve such a gift?
That lonely piano, that faltering falsetto, those words of rejection… Shit Justin, you’re going to make me cry.
Here’s the Bonnie Raitt original for your reference.
For another song by Bon Iver that makes me cry, listen to this.
