Sitting here watching The Last Waltz and I think I have finally come to realize something that i already knew. It Makes No Difference is possibly the most beautiful and most sad song ever written. I honestly can't think of any other song that makes me feel the way that one does.

It Makes No Difference is one of my favorite songs. Rick Danko's voice to me makes that song.

Yes... I love this song,too.. it has great meaning for me... it is a torch song for the love of my life, we saw this movie it feels like a zillion years ago.. Spent the day on top of the World Trade Center... the long line waiting to get up there on the observation deck.. it is all so bittersweet to me... he passed away 26 yrs ago..he struggled with drug addiction, alcohol addiction it seems like all of his life.. He was a wonderful person, I hope he has found peace... I think of him often, still... I think of him when I hear this song...

No one can sing it like Rick did...

Beautiful song. You guys should check out the Vines section and sign up for the 1983 Band reunion tour dvd from Japan. Insanely hot show and an unbelievable rendition of It Makes No Difference with Danko playing acoustic. Check it Out.

the version on The Last Waltz is Danko's all-time best vocal IMO...

A beautiful brilliant song. Illustrates the magic of music with the effect it has on so many.

It's long been my absolute favorite song. Just beautiful. Sure it's sad, but it's gotta be the best song I've ever heard in my life.
