The bells in the church tower chime, so it's time to grab our Telecasters and talk about Jeff Buckley.

Specifically, it's time for a deep dive into Buckley's "Last Goodbye," one of the centerpiece songs on his sole studio album, Grace. There'll be spacious drums, grand basslines, spiraling string parts, alternative guitar tunings, and of course, loads of beautiful singing.

Album: Grace (1994)

Written by: Jeff Buckley

Listen/Buy: Apple Music | Amazon | Spotify

ALSO FEATURED:
