Tonight a narcotic selection of songs of haunting beauty.

Four words: Mazzy Star, “Into Dust”

Five words: Chet Baker, “My Funny Valentine”

And a late addition by special request of Clayton Chrusch, Queen‘s “Somebody to Love”: the incomparable and irreplaceable Freddie Mercury, the voice-of-God guitar of Brian May, and those harmonies!
