Morning Aural: Nick Drake

https://youtu.be/Y2jxjv0HkwM
A lot of you guys got a little angry with us for yesterday’s Anna Nicole themed Happy Endings. Rest assured, we didn’t mean to offend – it was actually in honor of her and we like to think she’d appreciate it. But, to make up for that, we dedicate this video of Nick Drake‘s “When The Day is Done” to her.

Like Ms. Smith, Drake died too early, the victim of an apparent overdose at the tender age of 26. While he may not have left as big of a mark as Smith, Drake’s oft-referenced as one of music’s greatest talents, an honor he earned from his three gorgeous albums: Five Leaves Left, Pink Moon and Bryter Layter. This track comes from the first, which dropped way back in 1969, two years after Anna Nicole’s birth.
