Rodriguez - 'Cause'

'Cause' by Rodriguez is a tremendously hard hitting song. Recorded in 1971, this was the last song he ever recorded. The opening lyrics "Cause I lost my job 2 weeks before Christmas" turned out to be an ill fated prophecy with Rodriguez being dropped by his label 2 weeks before the Christmas of 1971. If you know nothing about Rodriguez, please watch the film 'Searching for Sugarman' or look it up. It's an amazing story. This guy should have been as big as Dylan, in fact he was in South Africa and didn't even know it for ages. Such a voice.
