Song of the Day – “New Music” Wednesday – “Angels of Fenway” – James Taylor

James Taylor’s new album, Before This World, dropped last week, and it includes this sweet memory of the travails of Beantown and his very own Nana.

Hey Nanna can I have another Coke?
Here comes the hot dog man
Look at that, his bat just broke
Gee, that’s got to kill his hand

Riding home on the Green Line
Watching the town go by
Nanna made another Red Sox fan
‘Til the day I die

That was back in ’65
It doesn’t seem like a long time ago
Grandmama keeping hope alive
Watched them win in ‘004
