Elliott Smith anyone?

I don't think I've ever heard his name mentioned around here

does anyone else think he's great

I think his accoustic stuff is some of the best work of the late 90s/00s

Huge fan of everything he's ever released (and a hell of a lot of the stuff he never did officially). One of my favorite modern artists by a long stretch.

Can't wait until the New Moon double CD comes out next month.

I finally came to the very difficult decision of favorite Smith album: Figure 8. He was a musical artist and it's a shame he's no longer around to contribute more of his work, luckily he left such a brilliant catalog.

I don't know him well yet, but I've enjoyed his music that I've heard so far. I'm meaning to listen to more of it on Rhapsody. Seems like an excellent songwriter.

Definitely been mentioned...but nothing wrong with mentioning him again. I love him, I'm looking forward to New Moon.

Twilight

Haven't laughed this hard in a long time
I better stop now before I start crying
Go off to sleep in the sunshine
I don't want to see the day when it's dying

She's a sight to see, she's good to me
I'm already somebody's baby
She's a pretty thing and she knows everything
But I'm already somebody's baby

You don't deserve to be lonely
But those drugs you got won't make you feel better
Pretty soon you'll find it's the only
Little part of your life you're keeping together

I'm nice to you, I could make it through
That you're already somebody's baby
I could make you smile if you stayed a while
But how long will you stay with me baby

Because your candle burns too bright
Well, I almost forgot it was twilight
Even if I think that you are right
Well, I'm tired of being down, I got no fight

You're wonderful, when it's beautiful
But I'm already somebody's baby
And if I went with you I'd disappoint you too
Well, I'm already somebody's baby
Already somebody's baby

Twilight is pure love.

I only have one of his albums, but I really like it.
