Ben Walker The original recording of this song (and the Last Waltz version, and the Rock of Ages version...) is one of my favourite tracks of all time, so I wasn't expecting to love Amy's version of her dad's signature song.

I should really stop second guessing myself. This is tear-jerkingly awesome.
