Several for me.
Ellington's Satin Doll
Charlie Robison's My Hometown
Guy Clark's Coat from the Cold
Townes Van Zandt's Pancho & Lefty
the Flatlanders' South Wind of Summer
Ol' Willie's Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain
Ever hear the slow version of "Songs About Texas", at the end of the George's Bar CD (which everyone needs to stop in to when going through Waco TX, the bar, not the CD)? It's more of a lament, one can almost hear the whippoorwill. That song is The Truth. Period.
Just a heads up, kinda related to the original trend, but Robert Earl Keene & Lyle Lovett are doing a show together, at Bass Hall in Ft Worth. They may be touring like this, so keep an eye out. It's being billed as "College Days at A&M".
Used to. "Good-bye Earl" - not for the obvious reasons, but the idea of a friend jumping on a last-minute red-eye. "I Loved Her First" - which is for me about my church, again not the usual narrative
Songs I never skip when my iPod's on shuffle: "Non Nobis, Domine" "When a Child is Born" "Riverdance"
"Drive" by Alan Jackson was a song that I remember listening to in my fathers truck before he passed away, it's one of the few memories I remember with him.
"Where Were You When the World Stopped Turning" also by Alan Jackson, 9/11 never forget. Very emotional song.
"I Saw God Today" by George Strait. Stops me in my tracks, makes me appreciate the little things in life.
"Champagne Supernova" by Oasis. Reminds me of a boyfriend that had an addiction.
These are all really good! ''Drive" is a great song.
Shame In You by Alice In Chains
Rotten Apple by Alice In Chains
Nutshell by Alice In Chains
Thonatos by Shiroh Sagisu
Midnight Cowboy by Faith No More
Life is like a Boat by Rie Fu
Air on a G String by J.S. Bach
End of the Beginning by Jason Becker
Tears of an Angel by Marty Friedman
Those songs always get to me. I had a very depressed stage and Alice In Chains really helped me a lot. As well as songs by Rie Fu. The other songs always floor me by the beauty of them. If anyone needs to hear an inspirational story, definitely look up Jason Becker. It could change your life.
Nutshell by Alice in Chains was my depressed song. "If I can't be my own.. I'd feel better dead.."
