Miles loved Neutral Milk Hotel and the album In the Aeroplane Over the Sea. There are a lot of good songs on it. As I described in an earlier post, Miles introduced me to the band when he was young. I listened to the album a lot and after many listens, he told me that it was about Anne Frank. Duh, I thought, after he told me. Of course. It is all there, obscured but it’s there. Anne Frank. It all made sense to me and I listened to many times more with new ears.
Miles listened to this album the last day he was alive. He listened to it at work at Woodward at the coffee shop.
