the album version of joyland - JoDan28 - 02-10-2011 09:43 AM
I had heard the youtube and live versions of Joyland and at first it took me some time to wrap my head around the song but eventually I started getting it. Last night though I finally got around to purchasing the album and listened to the album version of that song. Easily one of the best pieces I have ever heard. It actually brought a tear or two to my eye as I was suddenly slammed with fond memories of my childhood, happy and sad times, friends that I no longer speak to, innocence, and so much more.
If you get the chance to read this Andy, know that although I have been a die hard fan since I first found you on youtube 5 years ago, this song is the epitamy of modern composition. Never have I heard a piece more perfectly express the very idea it is supposed to.
