How Can We Hang On To A Dream (Live) by Tim Hardin

“I was looking for this classic song on YT ready to post it, when I found this gorgeous, plaintive, solo version that I'd never seen before....it blew me away!! Hardin has always been a singer-songwriter who can break my heart in the first 2 lines of a song and the economy of his writing is a master class (most of his songs come in under 2½ minutes!) Sadly, within a year of this being filmed Hardin had died from a heroin overdose. His expression to the camera at the end just makes me go to pieces. #SundaySoother .”
