4. My Morning Jacket - One Big Holiday (2003)
Jim James has one of my favorite voices in music, as long as he's not trying too hard to sound like Prince. On this song, the chorus sounds as if he's singing down to you from the heavens, the constant reverb on his vocals is just perfect on this track. It's one of the biggest sounding songs I've ever heard, and has the guitar solo to back it up. Seeing this song performed live has been a highlight of my music watching life. Check out the new Monsters of Folk album too.....James just dominates the others on the record.
Unfortunately this is a live version, as the regular album version has been removed. When/if the regular version appears again, I will replace it on this post.
