Your Weekly, Sunday Interlude: “Our Town”

Songs leave an imprint in our memories, a period of our lives, a love, that special moment. The first time I heard “Our Town” was while watching the finale of “Northern Exposure.” And this song, combined with one of my favorite, must-see shows ending, caused one ugly cry!

But it’s a lovely song. Iris Dement paints a backdrop with her lyrics that allow you to paint in your own life, your own memories in the foreground. But the first time I heard it, I was saying good-bye to “Northern Exposure.” I can still see Marilyn’s thoughtful gaze, Chris spinning records and Holling and Shelly tending to The Brick. Now make your own memory images and enjoy.
