I have been thinking lately about what to post and my fingers started playing The Weight and the little light-bulb goes off in my head. So I come here to post and low and behold, you have beat me to it by mere minutes! What the hell?

Great minds think alike! This is one of those songs I've been singing for longer than I can remember and I thought the refrain might make for a good opportunity for some easy harmonies. We'll see how it goes.
