Just one of my favorite music video's and more.

Recommended Posts

Something about this classic always impresses me. The way it crescendos more than once is fabulous. I think it’s one of the most impressive performances ever.

^:) Miss Itty Bitty Kitty liked your Highwayman song! As soon as Willy Nelson started singing she came out of nowhere and jumped right up on the computer!

Not everything he does resonates with my soul but this is another I like.

Two great tunes here also.  Poncho and Lefty was written by Townes van Zandt - great singer songwriter who met an early demise.

I'm always looking for songs to drive to. :) Normally I'm not a country music fan but one morning I stopped for fuel and coffee and this song was on the radio. I sort of started bouncing around and humming along while waiting for this slow poke guy to fix his coffee and gives me "the look". I just giggled and said" sorry, I've been on the road too long and now I'm overtired." He laughed and let me cash out ahead of him. Simple pleasures for simple minds especially at 4am!

LOL :) She didn't come around for the Poncho song but as soon as she heard Willie Nelson come in on the Luchenbach Texas song she climbed right up again. When it was over she kept looking at me then looking at the computer screen as if to say "Is there more?!" She's a silly girl:)

Didn't know that.

Yeah, Poncho is borderline with me. But I do like it. I'm a melody with strong vocals type of music fan but if it doesn't have a bluesy <is that a word? instrumental I don't usually like it. But of course there are major exceptions if the vocals are powerful. That is how I can jump from these bluesy country songs to Ozzy and be happy. Ozzy has a great melody and his tone resonates with me. Another guy who carries my ears just with his voice is Colin Hay, formerly of Men at Work. Here he is doing "Land Down Under" solo. His melody and tone gives me chills. I don't know how to explain it, just a weirdo listener I guess. But I got a specific ear and it is why I see all modern music as absolute garbage. I hate these fake bands with a passion.

:) ^ Very Pretty. On the original, the bass catches my ear almost to the exclusion of the rest of the song. I don't know why, there isn't anything special about it.

That one reminded me of Bruce on pain meds. He needed to speed it up a bit :). Hope your night, night went well.

I had forgotten about that one.  Did you recognize the girl dancing at the end as Courtney Cox from friends?

Yes. They always tried to say that was her random break to the big leagues but it is very obvious it was staged.

I loved Bruce growing up because he seemed so Americana. The older we got the more I thought he was a scum bag. His politics suck. If we ever met I'd try to knock him on his ass. It would be close because we are about the same age. But I'd still love him and his music no matter what happened :).

Not to dwell but here is a nice fast forward of this song. It is nice how music can bring the world together when politics aren't involved.

That was great - I’d never seen that clip.   I kind of lost touch with Springsteen once he got real popular.   Lots of energy live!  Speaking of the power of music, PBS just did a great episode of “The American Experience” on Woodstock.   It didn’t change the world, but it did give it a little nudge. It’s posted on the Pbs website/app.   I’d recommend it to anyone interested in music of the era (or just the era!)
