After having drunk several O'Fallon Brewery Smoked Porters, I wrote this whole multi-paragraph post about the greatness of Lucinda Williams and this live version of Joy (as well as an apology for once again going off-topic) but screw that. Just watch the video. You can thank me later.
This my be the greatest live performance of any song ever. Ever. I could easily write 5,000 words about how great this performance is but I've decided to spare you. Let's just say that if somebody ever asked me to explain what I liked about this world, I'd show them this video and simply say "This is what I like." This is the stuff that makes me happy to be alive.
