“Someone Else’s Tomorrow” by Patty Griffin

"Someone Else's Tomorrow" by Patty Griffin

Jarren has always been a sucker for Austin-based, singer-songwriter Patty Griffin. I like Patty Griffin alright, having seen memorable shows by her over the years. Griffin has just released a new album, Children Running Through, and we’ve yet to pick it up. One track on the album I have heard, though, is called “Someone Else’s Tomorrow.” I’ve heard it, because it plays during the closing credits of Laura Dunn’s poetic and powerful documentary, The Unforeseen. The Austin-centric doc, which premiered to great acclaim at Sundance and will screen at SXSW next month, closes with the piano ballad and it’s a touching and simple tune worth checking out. When Laura gave me a DVD of The Unforeseen to watch, I found myself so moved by the film that I kept replaying the closing credits so that I could hear the song over and over. It marries well with the documentary’s own somber tone. I look forward to getting Patty Griffin’s album soon. Maybe I’m a Patty Griffin sucker after all.
