Jeff Buckley


Jeff Buckley died May 29, 1997 at the age of 30. Since today was a teacher workday, I was listening to music at work — specifically, my radio blog. I have one of my favorite Jeff Buckley songs on it right now — “Last Goodbye.” I decided I’d rather listen to more of his music than the rest of my own playlist, so I went to Radio Blog’s website to search for other radio blogs with Jeff Buckley on the playlist. I listened to “Lover, You Should Have Come Over.” I started thinking about his tragic death. I thought of all the beautiful music we didn’t get to hear. I thought of his amazing voice, silenced forever. Tears welled in my eyes, and I felt foolish.

  1. Lover, You Should Have Come Over is one of my favorite songs ever! I'm likin' your new digs 🙂

  2. Thanks, Dana. And why am I not surprised you like that song? You and I are on the same wavelength about everything except William Faulkner.
