Ruby Or Iridescent Cough Drop?

This weekend it really felt like fall outside. So I was in the mood for this song, which to me, goes along with autumn weather and changing leaves. Kristen Hersh has said the song was inspired by the time her kid found a cough drop in the back seat of the car and said, "Is this a ruby?!!"


  1. interesting voice. liked the melody. but i think there were two songs playing at the same time. could this be? tempos changed suddenly at one point.

  2. No, it's all one song. She does change the tempo drastically in the middle of the song.

    Her voice didn't appeal to me right off. Andi, the girl I used to work with, introduced me to her. After awhile, her singing grew on me.
