Van Morrison – T.B. Sheets

T.B. Sheets by Van Morrison

“‘T.B. Sheets’ is one of the most real songs about death you’ll ever hear. As life saps steadily from the singer’s beloved, tuberculosis-ridden Julie, there is no trite drama, no nostalgic sugar coating or grand deathbed epiphany, but rather an ‘Is That All There Is?’ fatalism—a mild, detached, slowly-suffocating bleakness” – Steve Labate

Not the most seasonal of lyrics, but what a track.
