Song Therapy: Nina Nastasia and the prettiest song to mention mooning
“Cry, Cry, Baby” by Nina Nastasia
This acoustic gal alternates between playful and poignant, often within the same song. Against elegant instruments in the tear-jerker that is appropriately titled, “Cry, Cry, Baby,” she sings, quite beautifully, “You can have my sixth grade picture/Can I have the one of us mooning?” And she delivers it in a way that you can tell she is not trying to be clever or just silly. It just feels so human, capturing the humor that sometimes briefly emerges in sad situations.
