Track of the Day: 'Mary's Song' by Nick Cave

Editor’s Note: This article previously appeared in a different format as part of The Atlantic’s Notes section, retired in 2021.

Reader Doug keeps alive our series of “songs to work to” with a score by Nick Cave set to an enchanting timelapse of scenes from San Francisco:

Pretty sure I picked this one up from the Dish, but it’s a phenomenal instrumental song that tends toward the more relaxing, if that’s what you’re craving.

You may recognize it from the 2007 film The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford.
