Night Music: Iris Dement, “Let The Mystery Be”

“Teenage Superstar” last night started a Night Music series of my favorite songs. For a while I’m going to post the stuff I really like.

Today Lawr sent an email to the group asking if we’d heard the John Prine tune, “In Spite of Ourselves,” sung with Iris Dement. Well yes, I said, but that put me in mind of this one, one of my favorite songs of all time. The album recording might be tighter, but part of Iris’s great talent is making herself available to her audience, which the video gets a little of.
