91. Ray LaMontagne: You Are the Best Thing

Found on: Gossip In the Grain (2008)
Picked by: SL

Steph and her husband Josh danced to this love song at their wedding this past June, so it's a sentimental pick for her. Not that it isn't deserving. The horns are old school, LaMontagne's whiskey-voice sounds like it should be coming from a grizzled black bluesman, not a white bearded hippie, and the background vocals remind me of a different Ray, Ray Charles (with the Raylettes, of course).
