Song Of You

Album: Out Of The Game (2012)


  • Wainwright first met his German arts administrator partner Jorn Weisbrodt in Berlin, over dinner, when the singer was performing there in 2005. They got engaged in late 2010 and married in 2012. Rufus penned this song for his Weisbrodt before their marriage.
  • The important people in his life often show up in Wainwright's songs. He's written tunes influenced by his semi-famous parents Kate McGarrigle and Loudon Wainwright III, and also about his daughter Viva, who is the subject of the Out Of The Game track "Montauk ."
