Tim Buckley

Aren't You the Girl

Song Review by

Another example of Tim Buckley's ability as a teenage songwriter to write a commercial, interesting song, while retaining his unique ability as a poet. A catchy, folk-rock melody and tempo guide this effort with a strong degree of classical sensibility. Lyrically, the song is a bit juvenile, yet the overall tone of the piece shouts talent, with its effective, high-strung vulnerable feel. Van Dyke Parks' excellent harpsichord work is icing on the recorded cake.
