Interesting fact about the Wilco album Mermaid Avenue, all the lyrics on this album were written by Woody Guthrie 30 years before this album was made.  This is my favorite song off that album, and I love the way all the sounds paint a beautiful picture of lying beneath a starry California sky.  It sounds like driving through the desert with a sky full of stars above you.  Whenever I got homesick in New York, this song brought me right back to my homeland.

p.s. pardon the Youtube video, it’s pretty terrible – but the sound quality is great.
