Alphabetical Shuffle: How?

The stretch of songs beginning with “How” are an aching, beautiful set, and has me wondering another very human question: Why is “How” so difficult sometimes? It can be even more difficult than “Why”.

How Can I Tell You (Cat Stevens)
How Deep is Your Love (The Bee Gees)
How Do I Let A Good Man Down? (Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings)
How Do You Sleep? (Evangelicals)

    I think “how” is the hardest because it demands that you really enter into understanding another person’s thoughts and feelings. “Why” is about pure motives, but “how” is a lot more intimate.
