Songs: Steven Wright’s “You Are Gone” and “Run To You (So Goes)”

You already know that Steven Wright is a comic genius, and you probably know he uses his guitar onstage. Did you know he’s also a talented songwriter? These are the two songs he has post publicly. “You Are Gone” reminds me of something from Neil Young’s Harvest Moon, gentle and reflective. “Run To You” is cut from similar cloth, but a bit more driving. Listen to my conversation with Wright on the Department of Tangents Podcast EP7.
