A true song of heartbreak. In plain terms. With dramatic acoustic guitar strumming.

“This is our last embrace. Must I dream and always see your face?”

Jeff Buckley is the king of strong, alpha-male sensitivity. He was never derided as being too soft. Maybe that’s because of how powerful his songs sound. “Last Goodbye” features strings and a build-up of extraordinary proportions made stronger by Buckley’s signature falsetto wail. And then the question we all ask ourselves when things don’t go as planned. “Did you say, ‘No, this can’t happen to me!’ ”

There’s a little Oasis in this song, off of 1994’s “Grace.” Anyone else hear it?
