Encore

Album: This Path Tonight (2016)
  • Graham Nash closes This Path Tonight with this song, where he has more questions than answers. He told UK newspaper The Sun: "It asks, 'Who the f--k are you, the show's over and the lights are all fading? Are you a decent person or not? One thing I do know is that I'll be writing songs until they put the lid down on my coffin."
  • An encore is a call for an additional performance to be given at the end of a concert. It is from the French encore, which means "again." The French themselves call une autre ('another'), un rappel ('a return') or the Latin bis ('second time') in the same circumstances.
