Surprise! Sussex Ghost Story

John Wesley Harding: Sussex Ghost Story


There are many things to like about John Wesley Harding's "Sussex Ghost Story." From Harding's 2004 Adam's Apple, the instrumentation sounds almost like you would expect a Poe story to sound: A gloomy, almost foreboding string arrangement, Harding's off-kilter narrative and an interesting story twist at the end. It's also one of those rare story songs that holds up well after repeated listening. I've had it on my iPod for seven years no, and I never skip it when Shuffle selects it.
