Song of the Day: Elliott Smith - Waltz #2 (XO)

My iPod randomly chose a lot of Elliott Smith songs this weekend, so he's been on the brain.  I became a big fan with the release of XO, still my favorite Smith record.  Unfortunately, I didn't even know who he was when I saw him open for Sebadoh in about 1996, and if ever there were a show I could revisit, that one's near the top of the list.  Stylistically, XO is all over the place, with ballads, pop songs, and of course, waltzes.
