k.d. lang: Fallen

k.d. lang's 2004 Hymns of the 49th Parallel is an album of songs by fellow Canadians. As you would expect, Neil Young, Joni Mitchell and Leonard Cohen are all represented.

But one of the highlights is this song by the lesser-known Ron Sexsmith.

There is no video of lang performing, I am afraid: just this slide show. And I hate to think what New Labour would make of a lyric like:
You opened your arms like a school door to summer days.
