I'm starting a new daily series called Lyric of the Day.
You guessed it: each day, I'll be selecting one particular line from a song and post it here, along with a link to the track. Hopefully this will be a source of finding new music, remembering old songs, or, independent of the music, appreciating the amazing, poetic ability that so many songwriters possess.
Today's inaugural edition features Chicago-based heroes and one of my all-time favorite bands, Wilco. A track from their 2004 "A Ghost is Born," it's "Wishful Thinking."
The title draws from a recurring line:
"What would we be without wishful thinking?"
Please note that I can't promise to not recycle bands.... especially when it comes to Wilco and Jeff Tweedy's beautiful mind...
