This song, Ocean, is phenomenal no matter which way he plays it: live, stripped down, or in the studio.  It’s one of those songs you can get lost in.  It tells a story.  You can tap your finger to it, dance to it, cry to it, or catch yourself smiling by the end of it (erm, I guess I know from experience?).  Music is art and when art makes you feel something, the artist has done his job.  John Butler’s 2012 studio version is  twelve minutes of real, good art.
