Emily turned me into a Rufus fan years ago. I was at first hesitant, despite her ardour, sometimes I quickly judge things based on irrational variables. She burned me some discs, touted his sweet voice on long car rides and plead the case until I was sold on Men Reading Fashion Magazines. Recently, I got a little surprise – a heartbreaking tune on the airwaves of my radio station as I got ready for work. New Rufus.
Its been a stand out among my acquisitions lately. I’ve only owned it three days.
This track stopped me dead in mine the other night, and perhaps it was a little silly, but it brought with it a coupla tears. Its just so beautiful, and I miss my brothers.

Lastly, just look at how dreamy this is. I wanna live here, take my morning coffee with this piano, afternoon naps and sleepless nights…. in this studio with this piano!
