Skate Away this Holiday

I think the first time I heard The River was when Robert Downey, Jr. sang it on Ally McBeal. There was a depth of emotion and passion within the heartbreak that moved me. The song was originally written and performed by Joni Mitchell, she has always been a mistress of powerful lyrics.

I recently found this recording of the song performed by Sam Palladino from the tv show Nashville and was moved once more by his purity in vocals…and clarity. They complimented the lyrics in the most awesome way. Let me know what you think!
