That's Me Trying - William Shatner/Ben Folds
This came out a few years ago and still flaws me every time. The absent father storyline, Ben Fold's sickly sweet vocal hook, Cpt. Kirk's proposterous delivery, somehow imbued with the ache of decades of fatherly neglect.
The interplay between poignant piano and the voice of oak resonates whenever I hear it.
Any other suggestions, with reasons appended, for the one song a week discussion club?
