Road by Nick Drake

Album: Pink MoonReleased: 1972
  • This is a rare upbeat track from the legendary troubadour of haunting despair. While all his work seems to have deeper meaning than listeners will ever grasp - themes and ideas he took to his grave in 1974 - on the surface this one is about diverging points of view and the goal of mutual respect.

upbeat? not completely. my guess is he's again sorting recreational drug users from the "straight laced" old-fashioned conservatives. nick admits maybe they are on some moral path to find God. he himself is just trying to survive his own daily struggles alone and get his art out. sexually, who knows? nick seems to be singing to virgins, straight, and gay on this album.Andy - Lake City, Fl
