King Beetle on the Coconut Estate by mewithoutYou. It’s based on an old Sufi story. The song is about how secondhand information is always a poor substitute for direct experience, and about the transformative nature of unmediated experience of a thing or event. I first heard this song almost ten years ago, and the last verse still makes me ugly cry every time.
