Weekend Song

This is a combined birthday/ memorial month for Grateful Dead leader Jerry Garcia, who was born on August 1, 1942, and died at the age of 53 on August 9, 1995 (h/t Silver Spring Bureau Chief and blog musical concierge Brian). This is 1987's "Touch of Gray" from the album "In the Dark." Largely irrelevant factoid: it's the only Grateful Dead song ever to reach the Top 40 of Billboard's Hot 100, peaking at number 9.  Hope you enjoy.
