Song of the Day: 'Miss Chatelaine' by K.D. Lang

I just realized I had forgotten to post a song of the day, then saw my friend Bruce's post about seeing K.D. Lang live on her "Ingenue Redux" tour and the tune immediately came to me. My brother Bill was a huge fan of the country-tinged crooner and is responsible for introducing me to her. I remember buying "Ingenue" -- and then working backward to the nearly as good "Shadowland" and "Absolute Torch and Twang" (with the Reclines) -- at his insistence, and then playing it on auto-repeat in my bedroom in the little bungalow I shared with "Mike Henson" and his boyfriend, Dennis, on North Croft Avenue in West Hollywood. (I'm sure they were ready to kill me!) There isn't a weak song on the album, but "Season of Hollow Soul" and this one were always my favorites. I'd forgotten about this anniversary tour and wish to god Bill were here so we could go together. (Note my capitalization of her initials. Bill did not believe in acquiescing to cutesy spellings of people, places or things.)
