Costello is one frustrated guy!  Here's one more of his unrequited love.

Steve - Sounds to me like a bit of hyperbole to explain the caricature of Pat Boone (everything proper and perfect).  I guess it's going mentally back to the 50s that reminded me of this, but when we shipped out of Seattle, the band on the dock played "So Long, It's Been Good To Know Ya", "Harbor Lights", and "You Belong To Me".  That has always stuck in my mind, and that was early 1953.        

I always wondered who chose those tunes !!  As if things weren't bad enough

Jayrot,

If you like Vestal Goodman, I'll wager that you enjoy watching the Gaither Reunion programs on TV, or do they broadcast those on the west coast?

One of the reasons I love music so much. You can write down your frustrations, set it to music and feel much better afterwards:

  (Eric Clapton)


and just so I cover Tenfour and JG's generation joking folks

  Miss Bessie Smith

Frank,

A - I didn't think anyone could touch Bessie Smith's "Down and Out" and then along came Eric Clapton.  Just great !!

Steve - It appears to me that every choice of a vehicle of expression is either Retro, Era applicable, or Avante Garde of the next era or beyond.  In fact I used that concept to write curriculum in an American Studies program which we divided into "cultural epochs".  It is debatable, especially when we find works that bridge epochs, but it worked out rather well as a framework for study and understanding.

Lol, how do you think I learned of Vestal ... they do have some Vestal on the gospel channels out here, but I don't watch it much because it needs a certain family member there to truly enjoy it.  My grandmother has about 4 VHS tapes of Gaither Homecomings.  When I stayed with her during the summer, we watched them often.  As an aside, she'd allow me to watch anything I wanted on TV except for 3 rules: no soap operas, no wrestling, and after the evening news the TV must always be turned to Wheel of Fortune.

And the other grandma has always been a Jake Hess advocate, thus even more Gaither specials were enjoyed with her.

Although not quite the whole "two different takes on a song" type situation, I love this brief clip with the Florence and the Machine singer.




Yeah you sent this to me one day when I was trying to be productive at work and well so much for productivity......I love how some artist have their own style but maintain the grit of the music.....

Interesting that one of En Vogue's early hits was an Aretha Franklin remake





Oops, see how much I love it, I unknowingly repeated it

Just sharing three more songs that for some reason I just love to play in the summer:

  YES!!!!!



(will I ever live this one down?)

Nothing to live down. Penny and Me is a beautiful song. I believe written for Taylor Hanson's infant daughter. I'll join you and we'll "live it down" together.

I'll add this song as a song that oftentimes gets put on loop.

I've never heard this. Holy sh** that's good.

Oh geez get over it freaks. He's not a diety (this coming from a huge Beatles fan).

Lady Gaga is the fashizz.

Didn't we talk about two versions of the same song not too long ago?

Ooh I forgot about The White Stripes covering Dolly. So random (and cool). As I get through the song (listening right now), I'm someone reminded of Limp Bizkit taking a hacksaw to George Michael's "Faith" (love that cover too).

Speaking of DP, have you seen the country "Youtube star" Cjaye Lerose? A little reminiscent of Dolly. Similar voice (not as great as Dolly's) and a big personality. Pretty decent songwriter too. I hope she gets signed.

Damn, now I can't stop with the White Stripes

Probably my favorite Jack White performance (fell in love with this when I was going through my "I have to have folk music" fad ... lol)


And one for the pops, Willie Nelson and Kurt Nilsen:

Funny, because you posted about Cjaye on facebook, and since then I've been listening to her songs.

And speaking of Mahalia Jackson, I'll post this video which for some reason (read: name) I always think of when I refer to Mahalia Jackson:
(such a pure voice and phenomenal voice).

Lastly for today (I swear!), I cannot believe this song hasn't been listed here yet.  Many people debate whose version is the best, but this is the one I prefer:

Speaking of Willie, I wore out a three CD set on loan while traveling to Atlanta and back last spring.  This song kept grabbing my attention more than any other:

Anybody have Janis Joplin's "Summertime" or "Me and Bobby McGee"???  I especially like "Summertime".   Gotta love this thread !!
