This has got to be one of the best songs of the last decade. In the movie “O Brother, Where Art Thou?,” the song “I Am A Man of Constant Sorrow” was performed by George Clooney in his group made for the movie, the Soggy Bottom Boys. In actuality, the song, a cover of a 1913 song by Dick Burnett, was sung by folk singer Dan Tyminski. The song instantly gained Tyminski fame, and rightfully so. It is a simple, yet stunning track, of heartbreak in the Deep South. When thinking of songs from movie soundtracks, I can think of few that compare.
