Jeff Buckley – Sketches for My Sweetheart the Drunk


While playing pool tonight at the Norwood Pool Hall a familiar drum intro played on the jukebox. I Immediately recognised this song as Jeff Buckley’s ‘Everybody Here Wants You’, the soulful, romantic crooning of a man in love with a flawless woman. There is something about this song that strikes me – it’s almost as if Buckley really shoudln’t be singing this type of music but he pulls it off incredibly. This isnt the only great track on his final unfinished album, Witches Rave, Nightmares by the Sea, Yard of Blonde Girls – they are all wonderfully crafted pop rock songs from arguably one of the greatest voices of our generation. RIP
