This song was covered in 2003 by Iron and Wine, the stage name of American singer and songwriter Samuel Beam. It was originally recorded in 2002 by The Postal Service, and released on January 21, 2003. So it’s been around for more than ten years.
I was originally introduced to the song several years ago by my friend Marcus Kenney when I was visiting his family in Savannah GA during one of my many road trips. While Alex and I were returning home the other night, I heard the song on the radio and realized I haven’t yet posted it for your benefit.
During the two years 2005 and 2006, “Such Great Heights” consistently ranked in the weekly top five most-frequently-played tracks on the social music site Last.fm. I hope you enjoy it, too.
