Kirsty MacColl & The Pogues “The One And Only”
from Electric Landlady (EMI 1991) —Just last week, an old friend saw this CD in the record store and laughed hysterically at the name. I'd forgotten the joke after 22 years of just loving the record.
Lyle Lovett “Natural Forces” CD Album (Lost Highway 2009) —I'm subject to the natural forces / My home is where my horse is.
from A Night at the Opera CD Album (EMI Records 1975) —I owned this album back in the day - bought it at J.C. Penny's record department at River Roads. When I listened to it again for the first time in 35 years, I didn't remember this song.
Rene Spencer “Will You Drive Me to Drink”
from Out of the Gate (Rick Wood 1988) L —Way back before there was the phrase "alternative country," my friend Rick noticed all these bands had something in common and put out a cassette. My friend Rene sang this brilliant song she wrote.
Della Mae “This World Oft Can Be” (Rounder www.rounder.com 2013) N —A song from outside St. Louis that's as good as the ones I just played by my friends.
Patty Griffin “Ohio”
from American Kid Single (New West 2013) N —This is one of the songs where Robert Plant essentially writes a counter-melody to serve as harmony. Stunning.
Joe Tex “The Love You Save (May Be Your Own)”
from Greatest Hits (Curb 1991) —People, I've been misled, and I've been afraid / I've been hit in the head and left for dead.
Dinah Washington “What a Difference a Day Makes” (Mercury 1959) —Every single time those strings stop and she opens her mouth on the word "what," I get a chill! Every single time.
David Bowie “Time”
from Aladdin Sane (RCA 1973) —Straight out of musical theatre, and better than most musicals since he came up with this song.
Ian Gomm “Come On” (Line 1997) —An odd but very cool take on Chuck Berry.
Willie Nelson “Come Rain or Come Shine”
from American Classic (Blue Note 2009) —I could listen to Willie sing jazz for days on end. Or almost anything else he wants to sing, for that matter.
Like everything else, times are approximate.
