Justin Vernon: Best Song and Throw Away

I just watched this weathered musician, Justin Vernon, sing a rendition of “I Can’t Make You Love Me”. It’s the most incredible cover I’ve ever heard.

65,000 people “like” this video on YouTube, 1,000 people “dislike” it. Personally, I couldn’t believe 1,000 people disliked it. So I started reading the comments below the video. They span from “Perfection. Makes me weep every time I hear it. Beautiful.” to “He looks like a terrorist and sings like a woman. He sounds like Julia Childs and I can’t stop laughing.”

Even great songwriters and popular artists shoulder criticism! No matter what, keep going!
