Lucinda Williams, a singer who moves me everytime she sings.
Car Wheels on a Gravel Road is the CD
Songs - hard to pick one on this album, but the title song, Car Wheels on a Gravel Road, and one of my favorite of hers, Greenville. Beautiful. Sad. Moving.

You are such a cheater, Gary... you drop all these rulez, man, and then you break 'em!
I had a massive iPod session last night... i.e. sitting at my laptop with a pile of CDs to load into iTunes.
Found my old copy of Alice in Chains 'Jar of Flies' which is amazing so my tune today is 'No excuses'... RIP Layne.

You know what they say about rules, Juzzza.
I try. But I'm hopeless.
Music is the song of life. What can you do?

My brother Jake - Free
Because it just came on my iPod and is brilliant... if I were Gary, I would also mention the best free song in the world, 'Be my friend' it is one of the most emotional rock ballads ever... amazing vocals.

But that would count as a song, right?
I was thinking about Janis Joplin last night, listening to some of her music and remembering her. When I was young (very young) I saw her perform many times and she was awesome; raw, intense, powerful --- amazing every time.
When she died, I was devastated, like I had lost a friend, and I missed her music. I've never stopped listening to her.
Leonard Cohen wrote a song many years ago called Chelsea Hotel, and the first time I heard it I knew in my heart that it was about Janis. I just knew it. That's a testament to his imagery and his talent. He never spoke about the song, and it wasn't until a few years ago that he ever actually confirmed that the song was about Janis.
My song of the day - Chelsea Hotel by Leonard Cohen.

Song of the Day -- Rock You Like A Hurricane by the Scorpions
Thanks to my daughter's love of Ellen DeGenneres, I was watching her show when she was dealing with a fan who wanted help getting the Scorpions into the Rock 'N Roll Hall of Fame. I don't know who the Scorpions are, I told my daughter, and then Ellen sang just a snatch of that song's chorus, and I then was like, I know that one, that's a famous one. And now it's stuck in my head.
It's amazing how many famous, long-lasting seventies and early eighties rock tunes there are that I know well, but have no idea who did them. I never paid attention to the bands back when I was young. Now, the hard part is trying to remember their names -- is it Out the Back Door on Tuesday, or Sliding Doors at my Mother's House? Nouns, people! Use nouns, not verbs, sentences or numbers.

David Geffen once said that in all his years of producing music there were only two true artists that he had the joy of working with. The first was Joni Mitchell and the second was Laura Nyro.
Laura Nyro's Upstairs by a Chinese Lamp, from Christmas and the Beads of Sweat.

"Gut Feeling" by Devo, probably the best song of the 1980's that no one has ever heard of. (Because I'm all about the obscurity).

From Are We Not Men? Good song.
For me it's a Blind Melon day:
Song - Drive, since some asshole told me I can only pick one.
