Actually, and I love The album, but I absolutely hate Here Today.

I agree with you on this song. I feel that he sings it with very little emotion. I am not moved to tears after hearing it. 

I did like the Citi Field Live version where his voice cracks due to him get very emotional. He needs to do that more often.

He doesn't sing it very well. Martin's arrangment is quite beautiful but it doesn't save the song.

I think Here today is a nice song, but I prefer the live version. I dunno why, but some songs (this one and Calico Skies) I prefer the live versions.

Whatever.

Agreed, paulsbass. His singing is superb on this track. I can't listen to it much, though, because it is so sad. I would say this is one of the only pure autobiographical songs Paul has ever written, and for that alone, it deserves a high rating. I'm sure some of his other songs are autobiographical in some ways, but this is one of the only ones that is so obvious about it.

Look, I accept paulsbass that you like the song a lot, but to brush me off in one word was mean. Although I shouldn't have used hate. I certainly isn't bad, just not particularly good.

I didn't realize that I was being rude in stating an opinion. I certainly didn't mean to offend, but I don't apologize for my opinion, but for the fact I offended you when I certainly didn't mean to. I love this album, and certainly agree with you on Dress Me Up As A Robber, my favorite track. But, and this applies to all non – spam posters, I never mean to offend because of difference of opinion. NEVER.
