Patti Scialfa - 23rd Street Lullaby

“It takes more than clean hands to catch angels as they fall.” The lyrics wanders around the avenue in the evening, but fits well with any good Sunday afternoon listening party, slightly hungover maybe, but still able to enjoy the organ fuzzing along with the bass player and sha-la-las in the background while the narrator is “high on faith.” Shoutouts for Rose, a fully developed song story, and Stumbling To Bethlehem, a seeker’s party song.
