A great NPR story on Astral Weeks

Recently, Ben and I tried to narrow down a list of our top ten favorite songs, which has been growing much harder over the years as I get more in to music.  I couldn’t decide which song from Astral Weeks is my favorite.  That album is my desert island-trip to Mars-play at my funeral necessity.  A few days ago, I played it for Ben straight through, with the volume loud enough to fill the room.  It had been a while since I listened to it that way, and it was awesome.

This story is only a few minutes long, but it’s definitely really interesting, even just to hear Van’s voice mixed in with snippets of the songs.
