Big Hard Sun

I was over at Skye's blog and she was talkin' music.
I love music, always have, probably always will.
But she got me thinking about a song, a Canadian song.
This is a song, that makes me cry, I don't know why. It just does.
Done by Indio in the 80's, recently covered by Eddie Vedder.
The Indio version is way, way better.
Indio's version is more earthy and bluesy, Vedders version is slicker.
I prefer the first version.
It is of course "Big Hard Sun"
I think it is a song about our relationship to the earth and the sky.
Maybe you disagree, that's ok.
Point is, I am in the mood for this song and I am going to share!
I don't like the lyrics flashing across the screen.
The song doesn't need it.
The scenery is good though
All these years later, this is still a great song!
