5. Help Yourself – Sad Brad Smith
Our dreams take a slightly sadder turn now, but still a good one, as we delve into the works of my favourite Chicago based singer songwriter, Sad Brad Smith. A lot of these songs have beautiful chord patters, which this of course does, but it’s his voice that really comforts me here. The rasp to it, and the pain in each note, and yet the love in it, is wonderful. Never has there been a more beautiful song to let you dream of love, loss, and everything in between.
