Friday Night Jukebox
The first time I heard Elliot Smith was watching the Oscars – or rather, when I watched Good Will Hunting, but I didn’t pay much attention then. When I saw this performance though I was extremely impressed. It followed a number of big flashy numbers – Celine Dion I think, and others. Lots of production.
And then this one guy with his acoustic guitar and a slightly quavering voice, singing this fantastic, lyrically beautiful just immensely genuine song. A great moment.
