Asleep At Last

3:00 AM: “Sweet Jane” is playing — the “Cowboy Junkies”: version, of course — and Ella’s asleep at last. She _was_ screaming her little head off not too long ago, but I’ve already forgotten.

She also did pretty well with Natalie Merchant. I have a new appreciation for mellow music. For someone who’s been obsessing over Pavement and The White Stripes recently, this’ll be quite a shift.

UPDATE: Jim Henley has a “low opinion”: of the Junkies’ “Sweet Jane.” For shame.
