Wednesday/ time will tell

There was a commercial for a 2016 Subaru Forester on TV tonight with haunting music that I had to look up.  I did it the old-fashioned way* : by memorizing a sentence or two and typing it into Google to look up the lyrics.    It worked after a few tries, and here it is : Time Will Tell (on YouTube).  The singer-songwriter is Gregory Alan Isakov, whom I had not heard of.  And lo and behold, he was born in Johannesburg in the year when I finished high school, immigrated to the USA as a child and was raised in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.  He has sung with the Seattle Symphony Orchestra.  Man! I thought .. you sing such a mean song, one that reaches in and plucks at the strings of my heart.

*Apps such as Soundhound lets one’s iPhone ‘listen’ to music to identify the song
