  1. anais mitchelll ve greg brown'nın muhteşem düeti. şarkı 2010 yılında çıkan "hadestown" albümünün en güzel parçalarındandır.
    albüm yunan mitinde lir'i ile hayavanları etkileyen orpheus ile ağaç perisi eurydice'nin yaşadığı mitsel aşkı anlatır.

    hey, little songbird, give me a song
    i'm a busy man, and i can't stay long
    i got clients to call. i got orders to fill

    i got walls to build. i got riots to quell
    and their giving me hell, back in hades
    hey, little songbird, cat got your tongue
    always a pity, for one so pretty and young
    when poverty comes, to clip your wings
    and knock the wind, right out of your lungs
    ain't nobody sings on empty
    strange is the call, of this strange man
    i wanna fly down and feed at his hand
    i want a nice soft place to land
    i wanna lie down forever
    hey, little songbird, i got something fine
    you shine like a diamond, down in the mine
    and the choice is yours, if you're willing to choose
    seeing as you've got nothing to lose
    and i could use a canary
    suddenly, nothing is as it was
    where are you now! orpheus!
    wasn't it always, the two of us?
    weren't we birds of a feather?
    hey, little songbird, let me guess.
    he's some kind of poet, and he's penniless!
    give him your hand
    and he'll give you his hand, to mouth
    he'll write you a poem when the power's out
    hey why not fly south for the winter?
    hey, little songbird, look around you
    see how the vipers, and vultures, surround you
    they'll take you down, they'll pick you clean
    if you stick around such a desperate scene
    people get mean, when the chips are down
