I miss these guys. I miss wanting to play the Roches over and over again, I guess. Caught "The Troubles" this morning.
This came out of nowhere, but today I have "El Paso," one of the many excellent Gunfighter Ballads and Trail Songs by Marty Robbins.
I have this album, of course.
One little kiss, and Falina, good bye.
Lonnie Donegan singing "The Midnight Special," which is not as good as Leadbelly but way better than Fogerty.
But none is as good as Stan Freberg as Lonnie Donegan singing "The Rock Island Line."
Well, it makes a difference to the sheep.
"Our years put together counted 30." Except for the harmonica, this song is a sweet adolescent romance. "Try for the Sun" Donovan.
Mary Travers looks a little Paris Hilton-y in this video. Earnest folk singing, sure, but you have to love the sweetness.
Had this for two days now. Such a pretty melody. "Urge for Going," Joni Mitchell. This video is wild -- she looks like Patsy from Ab Fab in a flashback. Also love the guy who looks like Joe Flynn wearing a cowboy hat.
The name, the words, and most of the tune eludes me, but it's that song played endlessly eight or nine years ago (I think) with the words "They'll never get old and gray." I don't care what it is, but it's my earworm today.
Most of "Army Dreamers" this morning. Especially the gun cocking.
