Elliott Smith Live at the Oscars

Here’s a clip of Elliott Smith performing at the 1998 Academy Awards. ‘Miss Misery’ was written for the Good Will Hunting soundtrack at the behest of Gas van Sant. The song was nominated for an Oscar, but in the end the award went to ‘My Heart Will Go On’ from Titanic. (You can hear some Titanic-style pipes coming from the orchestra.)

There’s no limit to the number of great things to say about Elliott and his music. He was one of the most outstanding songwriters of his generation. At times he sounded like Lennon and McCartney rolled into one. I could fill this whole blog with great clips, but I’ll limit myself to this little gem:
