I'd heard of him, but I just didn't "get it" at the time... I could kick myself now for not realizing the awesomeness...

Could we please keep this stuff in the Kurt Cobain thread and just leave this a nice Elliott Smith thread?

Jokes not allowed now? That wasn't exactly topic hijacking, and I've seen far worse in other threads. And considering Smith's girlfriend was considered a suspect in his death, it's actually a relevant joke.

Elliot Smith isn't some kind of sacred cow.

There are definitely conspiracy theories out there... I think mostly because he was totally clean and sober when he stabbed himself twice.

On a slightly less morbid note, I'm literally addicted to Either/Or right now. I find myself listening to it once a week now, and if I play an album more than once a month, it's either brand new or something special.

On the topic of covers, this is wonderful:

YouTube - Elliott Smith - Thirteen

The conversation at the beginning is fantastic. Great example of audience participation there.

Either/Or is great and, it might not be what Elliott would have wanted, but it always makes me think of Good Will Hunting...which is a movie that I absolutely adore. Say Yes, Between the Bars, Angeles, and Ballad of Big Nothing are my faves on the album I think. Also, Miss Misery from the GWH soundtrack is a great song.

But my favorite all-time Elliott Smith song is Twilight. I might have mentioned this before but a good friend of mine's girlfriend is a really talented singer/guitar player and she does a heartbreaking cover of that song. Lovely. Also, the Vampire book series is based on the song, FYI.
