Central Reservation - Beth Orton

Every now and again, you read or hear something that you can instantly relate to because its so perfect that it grabs your attention and refuses to let go. You can't help seeing and feeling what the writer is trying to tell you because the imagery is so perfect that it overpowers everything.

The song "Central Reservation" by Beth Orton, has one line in particular that is so compelling that every time I listen to it I always end up restarting it and listening to it a few times.

And I can still smell you on my fingers,
   and taste you on my breath.

Crude, visceral, and sung in an amazingly melancholic voice. Do yourself a favour and give this one a listen.
