Friday evening, we braved the scattered storms to head out to the Beer Garden in Astoria for our friend Ernie's going-away party. He's headed back to Texas after several years of life in the Big Apple.
Nearly the whole gang was there from the young adult group at the Church of St. Paul the Apostle in Manhattan (through which we came to know Ernie).
For most of the night, a young man on solo guitar ably played covers of many popular tunes. One that caught my ear in particular was The Beatles' 1968 song "Dear Prudence."
So, for this week's "YouTube clip for a peaceful weekend," below are two covers of this favorite -- one by another young musician named Andrew Stein and a live performance by the amazing Alanis Morissette.
