This is actually a pretty depressing song about an empty life (the song writer, John Prine, says when he wrote it, he imagined it about a 48-year-old Alabama woman who was trapped in a loveless marriage) but I like this version because I've met two of the people in the video (Bonnie Raitt, no less, and Bruce Hornsby) on separate occasions.
Now go to work. Don't be depressed. Ignore those flies in the kitchen.
