Gord Downie’s powerful and poignant rendition of The Hip’s “Grace Too”.
No mere drop, he threw the mic, then “You can here the exact moment the country’s heart broke.” I think that sound will resonate for more than a generation or two. He doesn’t walk away, in a display of “Canadian-ness”, he picks up the mic and gently puts it back on the stand.
This is probably the most emotion I’ve ever seen come from a stage, it’s sublime. If it doesn’t hit you in the chest and make your face wet, you might not have a heart.
