Late For The Sky - Jackson Browne (1974)
No one has ever captured the feelings associated with loss more perfectly than Jackson Browne. This song, off of one of his three perfect albums, is a place to go whenever the pain seems too much to bear. Jackson has experienced it too, and although you might not find the answers you're looking for in the five-plus minutes of this confession, it will forever change you, because you know someone else has felt the exact same way as you. Several times in my life this song has offered solace in times of need. It is the pop song as therapy.
