Who Wants to Live Forever? (Josh Ritter’s “The Curse”)

If you haven’t, you owe it to yourself to watch the video for “The Curse.” It’s one of the most melancholy and beautiful love stories I’ve seen in years.

I saw this video (lyrics here), and was floored. I was moved, saddened, and heartened in a way that I really hadn’t felt since I first heard Kansas’s “Dust in the Wind”

or (perhaps the greatest of them all) Queen’s “Who Wants to Live Forever,” from one of my favorite movies of all time, the criminally underrated Highlander.
