Track of the Day: 'Romeo and Juliet' by the Indigo Girls

From reader Jody H.:

I submit the “Romeo and Juliet” cover by the Indigo Girls. I love the Dire Straits original, don’t get me wrong, but the song becomes something else when the Indigo Girls (well, really Amy Ray) are done with it. It’s much more longing and raw when compared to the original.

Love the series!
