[…] dysonsound offers a lovely exploration of Jon Brion’s “Her Ghost.” […]
Bang on the money. I’m a Jon Brion fan(atic), with nearly 20 hours of bootlegs, plus his legit releases. Not to put too fine a point on it, but…you done nailed it, son.
I am glad to find that I am not the only person absolutely enamored by this song. However, my interpretation differs from yours a little bit. I thought the song was about a girl, who Jon loves, that hasn’t quite got over her ex-boyfriend, who she still cares about tremendously. At least, that was the way it was explained to me by someone else, but I still wholeheartedly agree with their interpretation.
This song is hauntingly beautiful, and I always get a tingling sensation throughout my whole body when I try to visualize the lyrics to this song. The last line of the song is especially heart-wrenching and moving.
