Natalie Merchant: San Andreas Fault

Sitting in Starbucks last Sunday, a song playing over the stereo system suddenly caught my ear. I paid close attention to the lyrics so I could look the song up when I returned home and after listening to "San Andreas Fault" a second time, I like it even more. There is something about this style of music that just makes me feel very peaceful and at home.

A friend was recently musing to me that he didn't understand the fascination some people have with "the west" - how romanticized it is in their minds. This song, in my opinion, does a fair job of capturing his sentiment.
