And While I Have the Veil Off
This is one hell of a song, even if it is the musical equivalent of the movie Body Heat. Or was, at any rate. Since Corinne Bailey Rae recorded it, her husband passed away from a drug overdose, retroactively transforming it from a lovely exercise in nostalgia into a heart-breaking plea for a future that has already passed its expiration date. Take the time while you have it, as Andrew Marvell eloquently advised, because the untimely is always waiting in the shadows to steal your heart.

Lovely song, and a nice surprise to click on the link and find out Al Green was there, too.
