Jennifer Warnes – Song Of Bernadette

(This was a song that Jennifer Warnes co-wrote with Leonard Cohen and it appears on her album “Famous Blue Raincoat”. One of the great overlooked albums of the 80’s.)

I have been listening to this all weekend. It makes me want to burst out in tears – or laughter. I don’t know. I don’t get these musical epiphanies often anymore. So when they finally come, few and far between, I feel happy and overwhelmed, even though the songs that cause the epiphany usually contain some kind of melancholy.
