Post up your favorite music.  You can link or just tell.

One of my recent favorites: "Short Change Hero" by The Heavy.

The Heavy do some good music... How You Like Me Now?  What Makes a Good Man?

Hmmm... I see I've missed an album or two of theirs... gonna haveta fix that...

If you don't listen to this at full volume, you have no pulse:

I first heard it in the Rock's vengeance movie "Faster." I really liked it AND the movie despite the plot holes, etc. It went along great with the tone of the flick.

This is my jam. Rose Tattoo by The Dropkick Murphys

The lil' boys and I listen to this every morning that I take them to school. Matty (strangelittleman's wide-open, throttle stuck, lighting struck mini-me) requested it one morning and it became our morning ritual. He asked his mom for Dropkicks one morning and she didn't know what he was talking about

Also, these guys have been mentioned before in another thread, but they bear repeating:

Elbow.

Elbow - Grounds For Divorce (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jxczVhG0os8#ws)

*FANTASTIC* band to catch live, and solid songwriting. Seldom Seen Kid is easily one of the best albums of the first decade.

I'm impressed. Now don't get me wrong, there is no building nor mountain in the world high enough for me to adequately express my contempt for Lady Gaga but that I actually liked. As a metal version I'm sure some people will try playing it backwards looking for satanic messages but that's better than playing an original Lady Gaga song backwards and finding out just what a fart sounds like going back in.

Was listening to my big band radio and look who popped up in the que? Lady Gaga. I've got a real soft spot for any of the big band/USO music and while this isn't the best rendition I've heard of the song, it is definitely listenable.

There's just something magical about the time period which this music comes from. We were industrious. America was still cool back then and it was at a time before jazz was just confined to "elevator music". It's the same music grandad fought Nazi tyranny to, back when you still had to open a can of whoop ass with a "church key". Forgive me, I'm getting nostalgic  :cool.

My personal picks: Glenn Miller, Benny Goodman, Tommy and Jimmy Dorsey, and the Andrews sisters.

I love me some Volbeat.  Favorite station on pandora by far.

Same here. I "discovered" Volbeat last week when my buddy put them on in the weight room. I was amazed at the wide range of styles and sounds within the same band. I've been listening to them all week since. My favorites are "Lonesome Rider," "Dead But Rising," "Lola Montez" and "Doc Holliday."

http://youtu.be/7WdO9KhcUKE

http://youtu.be/Y5cpIcmfG5U

Some of the lyrics from "Dead But Rising" struck home because they made me think of my pops and me and my oldest son off in the Marines:

"I have been to the end of waters
I have been to the end of earth
I've been over mountains and riding the storms

Dear son, your words have reached me
And for that I can carry on
I'll guide you in spirit. Today I'll be home..."

If it's good music I'll listen to it.

I like The Staves.   :thumbup1    Their music reminds me a bit of The Roches.    If you want an album with Christmas music in that style I recommend their album, "We Three Kings" .    Excellent stuff.

The Roches?  :hmm I'll have to check them out.

Yep! I love the staves!

The Weepies, Tegan and Sara, the staves, warpaint, if you haven't noticed by now I'm a sucker for female vocals. Not to get indignant, but men were absolutely cheated when it comes to the voice/singing department. Sure, I love the voice of Willie, Hank, Charley, and George Jones, but in other genres of music? No contest. It goes to the girls.

So I've been reading John Ringo's Black Tide series again. One of our heroes, a 14-year old Marine Lieutenant who's also a borderline-sociopath (it makes sense in context) mounts some psyop speakers on top of her Amtrack (and later to her own personal M1 Abrams, which is painted pink, has a flame job, and is named "TRIXIE,") and has a habit of blasting this song when she's leading zombie-clearance operations. So naturally said song is now stuck in my head.

That one is groovy too!  But i really dig the message behind Cut the Cord, especially viewing it from a political Right/Conservative perspective - its time to cut the (nanny state) cord!

quote from Brent Smith Billboard interview:
“‘Cut The Cord’ is a wake up call reminding us all that we can control our own destiny by finding the courage and tenacity to destroy whatever it is that’s holding us back. The process may not be pretty or perfect or even easy, but absolutely necessary. The song is brutally honest and unapologetic, which is what Shinedown has always been.”

I'm down with that!

Yeah, I get it, you're an outcast
Always under attack, always coming in last
Bringing up the past, no one owes you anything
I think you need a shotgun blast, a kick in the ass
So paranoid, watch your back

Oh my, here we go

Another lose cannon gone bi-polar
Slipped down, couldn't get much lower
Quicksand's got no sense of humor
I'm still laughing like hell

You think that by crying to me
Looking so sorry that I'm gonna believe
You've been infected by a social disease
Well, then take your medicine

I created the sound of madness, wrote the book on pain
Somehow I'm still here to explain
That the darkest hour never comes in the night
You can sleep with a gun
When you gonna wake up and fight for yourself?

I'm so sick of this tombstone mentality
If there's an afterlife then it'll set you free
But I'm not gonna part the seas
You're a self-fulfilling prophecy

You think that by crying to me
Looking so sorry that I'm gonna believe
You've been infected by a social disease
Well, then take your medicine

I created the sound of madness, wrote the book on pain
Somehow I'm still here to explain
That the darkest hour never comes in the night
You can sleep with a gun
When you gonna wake up and fight for yourself?

I created the sound of madness, wrote the book on pain
Somehow I'm still here to explain

You can sleep with a gun
When you gonna wake up, when you gonna wake up and fight?

There is this rap group, the hilltop hoods. They are three guys and they are known for rapping about anything from the importance of family, personal life challenges, or even silly topics like why we should bring back the long drawn out handshakes from the 90's. Normally they rap together, but their member pressure was asked to do this song by himself- even the chorus. His little boy Liam was diagnosed with leukaemia and during the long nights of sitting with him in the hospital, Daniel Smith (pressure) couldn't quiet his mind. So while his son went through his treatments, Daniel wrote and rewrote this song as a coping mechanism.

Quote

 Pressure’s solo track depicts a conversation with his son Liam, who at the time was eight years old and diagnosed with leukaemia. Speaking on writing the song, Pressure stated:

"Writing that song is one of the hardest things I have ever done. I wrote it and rewrote it and rewrote it throughout his therapy and he responded very well to the treatment so it became a song of hope and perseverance."

The above exert, as well as lots more information about this track, can be found within The Hoods interview with News.com.au. Suffa stated that he “personally” felt this song was “the best thing [Pressure had] ever written”.

Update: Liam, is cancer free and according to Pressure:

"He’s good now, he’s doing normal kid s___, going to school. And there’s no sign of the cancer."

Below are the lyrics and song video.

[Verse 1: Pressure]
The very day you were born, your light shone bold in the dark
The doctor said you had a hole in your heart
Just knew you were making room for a whole lot of heart
And loved you from that day until your soul would depart
You took your first breath upon my chest
I built you a good nest before I left
It wasn't that I never loved your mother
But two happy homes are better than one that suffered
Every regret in this life that I made
Have been tempered by the strength in your eyes everyday
I know you never said that you’d like me to stay
Still I'm sorry I neglected you while I was away
You were eight when we headed to casualty
And no child should face their death or mortality
You taught me patience, strength and morality
And I'd burden this weight instead of you happily
That night, you asked if you'd die from your sickness
And why had it chosen your life out of millions
You filled me with a pride I was missing
Cause grown men cry they lack your type of resilience
Only when it’s dark are the stars so bright
For your fight you’re gonna harbour these scars for life
But you a brave little soul, came in the cold
Like a fighter hope you find that same flame when you’re old

[Hook: Pressure]
Fall asleep
And lay with me
We’ll search the night for shooting stars
If they can’t take
Away your pain
I’ll take your hand, walk through the dark
The dark
Through the dark
[Verse 2: Pressure]
I wrote this while you slept in a hospital bed
Know this, your breath at the cost of my breath
I'd forego this life, let you honour my death
If you could know what it’s like to live long and regret
So you can fight, you can shove, you can bleed and hurt
You can cry, you can love, learn your creed or worth
Earn your stripes, act dumb, cut your teeth or worse
Or take a wife to become your sky, sea and earth
But if these are things that you never see
With no god, just me, here to set you free
And most others won’t understand the hell in which you’ve been in
Till they’ve wrestled with a demon
But take heart, to be brave we first need fear
That same heart that’s seen pain yet persevered
Will serve you, I know this world is, of course, unfair
And hurt you, but these virtues are yours to bear
I named you lionhearted the day you’re born
They say the night is darkest before the dawn
I'll take your hand upon this path, if you can light a spark
Then we can find some calm in a raging storm
Ain’t nothing left to scare you, see?
So we can live, laugh and cherish every breath we breathe
And no matter where you go know I’ll never leave
Cause even when we’re gone we’re living in a memory, so live on

[Hook: Pressure]
Fall asleep
And lay with me
We’ll search the night for shooting stars
If they can’t take
Away your pain
I’ll take your hand, walk through the dark
Fall asleep
And lay with me
We’ll search the night for shooting stars
If they can’t take
Away your pain
I’ll take your hand, walk through the dark
The dark
Through the dark

[Verse 3: Pressure]
And I'm sorry that I can't take your pain, or answer why
We’ll lay awake through darker skies
I say your name, you cast a light
You’re a flame on a starless night
And I didn’t know I was lost till you found me
Didn’t know I was locked here without keys
But we can walk across all these boundaries
You and me, nothing here to stop you, you're now free
So I wrote this to give you hope
For every good thing in life you'll live to know
They say cancers survivors are gifted though
Let me know if that isn’t so

Glad to hear you'll check it out! Besides, this isn't normal rap, it's backed up by an orchestra and choir  ;).

The song gets me too. About a week ago we had a family friend lose their life to cancer. And, as someone who has worked on an oncology floor or two, it is a very heart wrenching disease to see in all of its forms.

MC 360 once again proving that rap can have meaning.

Quote
Yo, I wanna know how you feel man.
What, you think you a real man?
What about your children?
This s___ right here's gonna kill them.
Thought she married a goody,
but she married a bully.
fluff that, yo she married a pussy.
A real man never puts his hands on a woman.
No way, is it okay, whether male or female it goes both ways.
It doesn't matter who's the higher rate, you never touch somebody in a violent way.
You're so alone though. You might die if you don't go.
See it's hard to take, you can't escape, it's like you're imprisoned in your own home.
One second you get a nice kiss, the next you might get a right fist.
It could be any night, you knew he had a temper but never like this.
What a monster he's turned into.
Now mentally you're turning too.
It's not just hurting you, if you don't leave now he might murder you.
You thought you were gonna be great, now you wanna escape, but you're scared as s___.
You're afraid of the dark and the darkness right now is where you live.
You don't need to be brave.
Stop leavin' it be.
Your kids are the reason you stay,
but they need to be the reason you leave.
That's it! You've got to leave. I hope they don't understand what they see.
And if they do understand, then I hope they view him as what not to be.
I believe it's time for peace. Here's some words a wife will need.
You gotta know that abuse is the issue as soon as he hits you, it's time to leave.
Never knew he was crazy as this. Feel so trapped no escaping his s___.
It ain't about takin' a hit, he'll say anything just to make you forgive.
No apology will ever change what he did, can't ever take back breaking your ribs.
You gotta do it for the sake of the kids, so they know it ain't cool to be raisin' their fists.
It doesn't matter if you're men or women, if you love 'em then you never hit 'em.
It doesn't matter if you're men or women, if you love 'em then you never hit 'em.
It doesn't matter if you're men or women, if you love 'em then you never hit 'em.
It doesn't matter if you're men or women, if you love 'em then you never hit 'em.

The MILKDRIVE piece is interesting.  I like it.  Sort of an offshoot off Grisman's "dawg music".  Its not really "newgrass" per se - more of a new age country sound that has quite a few disparate elements woven together.  Good musicians though.   :thumbup1

Spiro is not far off some of the PCO stuff but it has more of a Manx reel flavor to it.  Nicely done. 

Daughter reminds me a little bit of another U.K. group from a few years back called Jez Lowe and The Bad Pennies.  Their style strikes me as a bit more "urban" and a little more "rappish" ?  ( izzat a word?   :scrutiny )

MC 360?  Once again, I like the written poetry - but I don't care for the voiceover delivery accompanied by .  .  .  music? Just not my thing.

That's a new one to me. I don't think I've ever heard someone suggest that daughter is rappish. They take the female vocals and indie electronic vibe popular in most of today's pop music and...... Make it depressing as hell. The xx and purity ring have more in common with daughter than say, female rapper Iggy Azaela or however it's spelt  :shrug.

Man, I love classic country. Even despite liking George Strait's give it away, it cannot hold a candle to some of the older songs that I posted.

 OK.   Me too.    I am a sucker for a steel guitar , fiddle and stratocaster....
                     http://seattle.craigslist.org/sno/msg/5781230835.html     oops..... :D

         Most good songs are about love and loss- especially good country. :D   I don't know how to sift out the ads, so bear with it.

 Haggard    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6jlVdC4qxsQ    emmy lou version excellent also

 Emmy Lou-      She is not known as a writer, but this song is great-about Gram Parsons .
                       https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M9A48houSs0

 Gram Parsons   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vO8C9fqC3uk
                       https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8V4NoboSq6w

 Not classic- but- Eliza Gilkyson- fantastic fiddle/steel break in this- simple, clean, effective.
                         https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DKYWXQ6LPYg

 Patty Cline - one of my favorites-  for an interesting comparison, listen to this, then go and find some cover's- Patty Cline sings this effortlessly, and the covers, even the covers by real pro's, sound like they are screaming.
                          https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iuZTk1hdpMs

 Keith Whitley- classic
                    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Vh1dvD6Npc

 Russel Smith- Amazing rhythm Aces-
                     https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GrpbLckHa6o   Killer chord changes on this
                     https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ek6wLbZiRBw

 Vince Gill-     https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6jXrmAKBBTU
                    he sang this with Patty Loveless at George Jones memorial- right to the heart.
                    Vince Gill is one heck of a guitar player as well.

 John Hiatt- not really "country", but pretty hard to categorize- one of the very best writers  around- he constantly amazes.
                      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7zAfkFQ5avY

  Steve Earle-   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-hn4rx644sc

I agree that the best songs are about love and loss (this can go for books and other forms of art as well!). Try this tokugawa, Swedish duo First Aid Kit used to listen to their Grandparents collection of old country songs and then started making music of their own as teenagers. They cited Emmy Lou as being one of their many old school influences on their music, you might want to check them out! Their voices and harmonies alone make me weak in the knees and I fall in love a little bit every time I hear them. I love a good fiddle, but the female voice is probably the most beautiful instrument we have on this planet.

I actually like it. it is literally country rap. (abbreviated C.rap) that isn't that bad. I like that their relying on acoustic more then electric instruments, the actual singing appeals to me in the same way as johnny cash. pop country rap is cancer. pop country is cancer.

This is the song I was looking for as my example a few days ago. It might be a whole world apart physically, but the mindset of Texas country and Australian country music is on the same mental/cultural wave length.

Ok, I'll play along. This one is kind of strange in it's sound, but I absolutely loved the show. It was perfection in seasons one and two and then three was debatable, with four being horrible until the ending. I loved the atmosphere, emotion, and gritty hard boiled feel to it.

Here's a somewhat new one,  Gravity Falls.   Yes, I know it is a cartoon,  but it's still an awesome theme song.  My wife stumbled across the show online a few weeks ago and binge watched the whole series.   I haven't seen all of them yet, but I did enjoy the ones I saw with her.  It's what you would get if you crossed Monster Hunter International with a Disney cartoon.  It's about a couple of kids that spend the summer with their eccentric great uncle in a very weird town in Oregon.   Honestly, I'm not sure how they convinced Disney to allow some of the stuff on the show.   Especially the parts with the zombie uprising, or the series finale where the inter-dimensional chaos monsters wreak havoc upon the town.

Back to the 1980's for two great detective show theme songs, Magnum PI and Simon & Simon.  This was the second theme Simon & Simon used, the one during the first season was completely different.  I think they also had a version with lyrics that might have only been on the pilot.

I'll have to listen to some of them later. I'm familiar with the song "ain't no sunshine" and I've heard the term/genre Motown used before, but I've never been exactly sure of what makes Motown, Motown  :shrug.
Title: Re: This is my jam.
Post by: Raptor on December 03, 2016, 01:01:57 pm
"Motown" generally refers to the distinct "sound" put out by Motown Records, which was soul music with a distinct pop influence. The word "Motown" was actually short for "Motor Town," since Motown Records was originally based in Detroit.

BTW, those are all covers. If you're not familiar with Motown, definitely check out the originals. Joan Osborne is amazing, but she doesn't even come close to the originals. Nobody, and I mean nobody, can do Motown as good as the original artists.

Marvin's cover is considered by many to be the definitive version, but Gladys Knight sang it first.

Title: Re: This is my jam.
Post by: Fenderbassist on December 03, 2016, 02:07:15 pm
Keep in mind that recording in a studio, where you layer the instruments and balance the levels to the desired result, plus get to redo your vocals until you achieve the desired "take"...

v.s. performing live with a live sound system where there is a mix but things still lack the analog tape "warmth" of classic recording...

is comparing apples and oranges.  Plus, the singers used in that film, which was a tribute to The Band,  weren't the ideal selections for the songs they were given (song style, song key, vocal range written for someone else).

This is also why being a cover musician is more difficult than being an original musician.  Originals let you have your sound, with songs that are tailored to you and your style.  Covering music means you have to be able to perform in the styles of many other people (if you're approaching it the traditional way).

As an example, these people in the following videos aren't "the best of the best possible singers to find for the Motown material, within their country", just groups of people in their local areas that decided to work together (with a limited size band covering the orchestra-sized group from records, taking liberties in the arrangement to play to their smaller-sized strengths) to come pretty close doing it live, which is a lot harder than in the studio.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=le44kvidlxk

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eeNv-HZ6_gU

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b9RAOE3Lnb4

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=adZYHrgiEIY

So imagine who could be found for the "ideal remakes" of Motown classic if such an undertaking was done.  Of course they wouldn't be out to take away your or my favorite version from history, but they could do justice to the songs if they had the right production behind them to do the material (for them) properly (not trying to do a range of styles), and not as a live money-making venture they financed out of their own pockets.

I feel the music of Motown and Stax is wonderful and should be celebrated, starting in its classic form.

The master improvisational bassist James Jamerson's sound of flatwound strings (that never ever got changed) on a 62 P bass (The Funk Machine), with Marvin Gaye's various vocal tracks being improvised as well.  Sometimes they just captured moments instead of trying for overly produced parts back in the Motown days.  This is why Jamerson had trouble finding work near the end of his life where studios wanted him to play exact parts that they wrote instead of letting him improvise his way through entire songs (knowing where the chord changes were).

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S6tCqqbnB6o

This guy does some very nice covers (accurate reproductions) of the bass where it's just his instrument you hear to the original tracks, Jamerson's original improvised studio bass is removed.  This guy uses a foam muting pad behind his hand to help duplicate the "deadness" of Jamerson's old strings that he insisted on using.

Well...  Let me illustrate it in a way we as shooters will understand.  On the one hand you have a highly-trained professional long-range shooter, with a setup that costs more than my truck.  He doesn't just ring a gong at 1000, he prints groups.  On the other hand you have a shooter who rings steel, most of the time, at 300.  She runs an off-the-shelf rig that is worth less than the other guy's scope rings.  But hey, she's having fun, and she is not bad to look at.

Sorry, I grew up in a classical music house.  It spoiled me. :p

I would go even further, putting Pavarotti in a class all by himself.  The other two paled in comparison.  Bocelli is good, but he is best listened to first, as a warmup, so that Pavarotti will sound just that much better by comparison. ;)

I disagree. If in most circles, system of a down and disturbed can be considered heavy metal, then at the very least Smith street band is punk rock. But I would like to credit it as metal. The good news is that now when I get some time, I'm going to try to hunt you down some 'actual' metal.

I've put some Gillian Welch stuff up here before - in the murder ballad (https://wethearmed.com/r-r/murder-ballads-what's-your-favorite/msg381428/#msg381428) thread.

Great stuff. Her voice and David Rawlings' blend incredibly well, and he is a damn good guitar player.  If you can catch them live, do so. They're incredible.

I was at a trade show recently, and one of the attendees stopped at my booth.  He had long hair and 'rock star' sun glasses, so I told him he looked like a rock star who just stepped off the bus, and was trying to hide his identity.  He looked at me and said, "I prefer the term 'musician'."  :hmm

We talked, and apparently he is the vocalist for this band.  He proceeded to b____ about not making enough money on tour. (He had just got back from a European tour.)  Watching the video...  I know I wouldn't pay to see that live.  :shrug

That wasn't awful, even if it isn't my preferred type of music.

It's to my understanding, across the board, musicians that are starting out make crap for money. The joke is they bring thousands of dollars worth of equipment, hundreds of miles, to make 10 bucks.

While I've not heard of them previously, I felt like I was back in the eighties while listening. I "grew up" on that style of music and frequently find my Sirius radio on Hair Nation. Would I buy their album? Probably not. Would I change the station if they were on? Probably not.

Since the new Lorde track has already been posted above I'm going to make mention of this cover version of a well known song I found on YouTube. Ever since finding out there was a full length version I haven't been able to stop listening to it.

I have only attended one concert in my life and it was in wacky, liberal Austin, Texas. My friend drug me there to see Death Grips :hide. All I remember was that there were young hipsters with tatoos every where, a lobby with an impressive array of alcoholic beverages, some sort of nude movie was playing on the big screen televisions in said lobby, and it was a gun free zone. It wasn't worth the hearing loss and it was one of the more bizarre things I've seen. I just glared at people and drank my water in the bazillion degree heat while the young people mosh pitted, got spat on by MC Ride, and were strung out on weed, liquor, and God knows what else.

I was only allowed to ever attend 2 concerts while I was in school.......and I told myself--when I get on my own, and I wanted to go, I would take off and go--anytime, anywhere---and I have.
When the band is tight, and the audience can feed/feel the energy, it is an amazing time.  :thumbup1

I was just mad cos I couldn't carry my gun. I don't think you can in any concert. Some days I'll forego carrying multiple guns, but not carrying any gun at all? Madness  :bash.

Also, I really don't like the mixing of alcohol and stupid people. Which is why I typically drink at home.

Another German March by Kaso.  This was a hard one to find a good version that did not have a video reel glorifying Nazism.  Most of them were one or the other.  This is a good one that is SFW.

I don't know if you could really "jam" to these, but I'm rapidly coming to appreciate the "Crooners" from the mid-30s through the mid-50s. Particularly this gentleman, even if he allegedly hated being considered a "Crooner."

It doesn't have to be a straight up banger for you to post it here. Just post the music you like  :cool. I love the old big band and USO music (except Cab Calloway). Frank Sinatra made some of the best love songs ever, in my opinion. Then again the man was so madly in love with Ava, that when he thought they were through he tried to commit suicide by sticking his head in an oven, so I guess the passion was there for some powerful lyrics.

First 3 are my all time favourites. Enjoy!

The interview at the beginning is short and it doesn't take them long to get into the song - which has never been done better.  By anybody.  Even the guy that wrote it.  I watched her perform this live and had a big stupid grin on my face for two days afterward.  I think I'd pay money to watch her read the telephone directory - goofy 1970's outfit and all.

Okay, being serious now.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EzzjtFO4Rsg

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OyU4W43O9l0

These songs aren't my usual fare, but they hold a very special place in my heart. See, I'm something of a train buff. When I was a kid, I was a HUGE train buff, and my favorite train was the Southern Pacific Daylight, specifically steam locomotive 4449.

(http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/c/cb/Night_session_june_23_2011_033xRP_-_Flickr_-_drewj1946.jpg)

She's a GS-4 class locomotive built by Lima Locomotive Works in Lima, OH in 1941.

When I was really little, probably no older than 6, someone (probably my grandmother) bought me a VHS tape called "Daylight Express." I have vague memories of finding it in one of the gift shops at the Strasburg Railroad outside Strasburg, PA, but I honestly can't be sure. The video is a documentary that first gave a very brief history of Southern Pacific's Coast Daylight service and the 4449 herself before following the locomotive as it led a special excursion train from the locomotive's home base in Portland, OR to the California State Railroad Museum's 10th Anniversary Rail Fair celebration in Sacramento, CA in 1991. I watched that tape religiously, so much so that I probably wore it out. And I still own it even though I doubt it still works. I just can't bear to part with it, even though I haven't watched it in years. But earlier this weekend, while meandering around the wilds of YouTube, I discovered that someone had uploaded "Daylight Express" in its entirety. So of course I clicked the link, and for not quite 2 hours, I felt like a little kid again.

So what does any of that have to do with The Kingston Trio? Well, as you've probably guessed, those songs were used in "Daylight Express." "Fast Freight" played over a montage of the 4449 leading the train from the Willamette River outside Eugene, OR, up towards Lookout Point Reservoir and Oakridge, OR, while "Chilly Winds" played over the end credits as 4449 and the train make the return trip north from Sacramento back to Portland. The Kingston Trio didn't sing the songs in the film; the production studio instead brought in a band and singer that I assume to be local to them, no doubt to save on production costs, but even so, whenever I hear either song, I can see the Daylight in my mind's eye, and I feel like a little kid again.

There was a third song used in "Daylight Express," this one played over the montage of the crew working on the locomotive and assembling the consist of passenger cars, but I don't know the name. I believe the song's called, "Twas a Cold Winter's Evening," or "O'Leary's Bar," but I'm not sure, and cannot find a decent track of it on YouTube.

Now that we have that cleared up. :cool

My admiration of the German people comes from no matter how many times they are swatted down, they rise like cream back to the top.  From the rise of Prussia, to losing a whole generation of men to WW1, then within 20 years rising to be the top dog in Europe again.  Bites off more than they can chew in WW2, loses another generation of men (plus) has their infrastructure demolished, loses Pomerania and Silesia and has to relocate those populations, is occupied and split in two, and still... within a generation is economically near the top of the pile.  THEN, the FDR has to absorb the DDR, setting them temporarily back again.  And within 20 years the dominant state in the European Union, and one of the top economies in the world.

If that is not impressive, I don't know what is.  Seriously, these people are meant to rule the world. (And yes, while I am partly of German stock, it is not a high amount, so that is not what this is about)

To the authoritarian part, you are correct.  Germans love structure, order and efficiency.  It is both genetic and cultural, as one feeds off of the other.  The most efficient way to create structure and order is through the power of a strong state.  Libertarian, the German culture is not.  I think that is what attracts me to it.

Tony is one of my favorites.  To bad he doesn't sing any longer.

IIRC, it's a degenerative disease of some kind... it is a shame, he had a solid voice. Hasn't diminished his playing one whit though. One of the best.

From a link I found:

Quote
About the problem with Tony Rice's voice: it's called muscle tension dysphonia, and it originates and exists at the level of the neck or the larynx. Rice hasn't sung onstage or in a studio since the early 90s. What his fans probably don't know is that they miss his voice more than he does.
Tony: “I've always enjoyed playing guitar so much more than my voice anyway. I think back to the Grisman years when I rarely sang. I didn't miss it then, and I can honestly say that I don't miss it all that much now. It may one day come back by itself; I don't know. A very reliable otolaryngologist - John Starling [formerly with the Seldom Scene] - and my two voice therapists assure me that if I want it back, I can get it. They have all warned me that it will take extensive therapy. I just haven't been interested in that enough to pursue it. It's gonna be very hard, because I'll have to isolate myself from the world and talk only to my doctors.

It's painful if I talk long enough. I have good days and bad days, and days when I don't think about it, and days when I'd rather not talk to anybody, period.”
Title: Re: This is my jam.
Post by: Mikee5star on July 26, 2017, 08:50:09 pm
I knew it was a medical condition, but not what.

Allison Krause is a great musician, not a great singer though in my opinion.  She was a national fiddle champ, who still has great licks.  I liked her singing better when it was less trained and more exuberant.  Haven't found a good example yet.

I truly hate this song. My route took me out to western OK this week, and at 5:30AM, like every freaking morning out there, the only receivable radio station blasts this out. It is not a bad song, AND I know I am 2 hours from Amarillo, AND I know the sunrises at 7:30 or so, but the joke is old man... So old.

https://youtu.be/wtVeDaZxAXo
Actually, that song almost got me killed back in 2003.
Had I stopped for a cup of coffee by the weigh station I wouldn't have been on the road to be hit by a guy running from the law, doing  more than a ton and right into my front right wheel.
I was hoping to make Amarillo before rush hour so I could lay over a few days before dropping in Dallas.

It seems a recurring theme in these German marching songs is the word Mädchen, or 'girl'.  I never thought of them as the most romantic of races, but the reference is in almost every second marching song.

Also to note, this is not the only one in which the girl is presumed to be seventeen. (It is always spoken as if an ideal age)  The rules must have been different then/there.

Men have always made art about women, and music is a form of art  :shrug.

Times are different? I'd say we still view 17 or 18 as the ideal age. After all, that is young adulthood when we have all of our lives ahead of us.

You are missing the point.  Today we would make a song and say 'eighteen.'  If anyone made a song about seventeen year olds, he would be considered a creep and a potential child molester.  Apparently the age of consent/legality must have been different in Nazi Germany.  It had nothing to do with anyone's life being ahead of them, rather that was the ideal age for a tryst.

Yeah, sometimes it seems so! 

Back in the '80s I drove down the coast to Thibodaux, Louisiana, a number of times to shoot with the Canebrake Combat Pistol Shooters.  Gas stations there had pumps on both the highway and the bayou side and at the range there were times when crawfish climbed over the backstop in great numbers. 

I remember one match where they told us there was going to be a special "half-time" show.  At noon, an older gentleman stepped out to tell about "his gun." As he was talking, a well polished 1880s vintage Gatling Gun was rolled out on a period artillery carriage.  He went on to explain that he had purchased the Gatling from a museum in England but later found that several bolts and firing pins were missing; so he had Lockheed Aircraft make new replacements!

The gentleman continued, that since the Gatling ate up an awful lot of black powder shells, he had the folks at Star Machine Works put together a custom Star loader with all brass fitting suitable for handling black powder!   

The show, oh yeah, it took a couple of big guys to hoist the 50 lb. loaded brass drum magazines into place.  But when the crank was turned and the Gatling began spitting fire, smoke and lead, the backstop simply disappeared behind billowing white clouds of sulfurous smoke.

Yeah, I guess you could say:

"There is something in the air in that part of the world. It makes the people slightly crazy."

Not wishing to depart from the Christmas spirit, but I gotta share with you guys two of my favorite contemporary blues performers -- Beth Hart and Joe Bonamassa.

Here they are together.   I got to see Joe live last week and it was a real treat.  I'm biased, but he may now be the best active electric blues guitarist.  Beth is better, IMHO, than Etta James, who did this originally.  Joe breaks loose on the Tele at about the 4:25 mark or so.

While she's popularly known for her truly strange attire, Miss Lady Gaga does have some serious talent and voice.

And she's professional enough, and can be classy enough when she wants to be, to hang with an old pro like Tony Bennett.

(I can say I've seen both live, Bennett at the Live 105 Accoustic Christmas a couple of decades ago, and Lady Gaga at the Bush Foundation Hurricane Harvey benefit that was done here at A&M.)

Those of you already know that I love Lost Dog Street Band. Well, I've been doing a helluva a lot of driving across the great state of Texas lately and this song found it's way to my speakers. It resonated with me to some degree. I originally thought it was about any loss/departure, but after listening to it having come home now, I see it is regarding a specific tragedy of narcotics.

While it isn't exactly what I thought it was, here is a tune that does fit the genre and the loss departure category.

Bear in mind, that he wrote this song when he was a homesick 17-year old, in France, the first time he'd ever been away from home.

Not sure how Ritchie Blackmore went from lead guitarist for Deep Purple to doing something like this, but I really enjoy it!  May not be everyone's cup of tea, but you have to admire the artistry, if nothing else.  It's something he wrote in tribute to his late cat, Possum.

 Auld Lang Syne* sung by Dougie MacLean

* Scottish poem written in 1788 by Robert Burns.

Wow....I didn't know anyone in America had heard of Dougie Maclean.
I didn't catch this thread until today... bit late to the party ....
Circa early 1990s,  I visited Scotland...Loch Ness has a small museum on its north Shore regarding the infamous Nessie,  complete with appropriate music to accompany each part of the exhibit.   They sold cassettes of the music at the exit.  The score was written by Maclean.  Today I have it on CD.   
It's a pretty evocative,  atmospheric score ... probably not to everyone's taste,  but I like it!

Yup.  Apparently Stephen Stills is a fairly accomplished sailor and he and Jimmy Buffet hit it off pretty good on that account.  OK - maybe there was some rum involved but you didn't hear it from me.    :whistle

Speaking of Jimmy Buffett... while I'm not a big fan of his music, I heard tell of a thing that happened that I wish I'd been there for: apparently, he and his son were taking one of those sailing cruises around the Caribbean (the ones where you actually work, not loaf around), on a smallish boat.  When someone twigged onto who he was, he and his son put on impromptu acoustic concerts a few evenings.

 Love Let Me Home To My Mother performed by Julie Fowlis  (In Gaelic)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oLUY_WLMQoc

Love, let me home to my mother
Love, let me home to my mother
Darling, let me home to my mother

Love, let me home
to my mother
I only came for the cattle.
It was only last night
That I heard that my love was herding
And though you found me at the perimeter of the cattle fold
Love, let me home as you found me.
I was clambering up
the dykes
And descending the ridges
When a friendly lad met me
And he did not enforce his friendship on me.
Though you were to give me cattle and sheep
Though you were to give me tethered horses
Though you were to give me that and men
Love, let me home as you found me.
My mother and father will chastise you
My clan and my relatives will chastise you
But my three brothers will kill you
If I don’t return home as I came.
My mother promised me a gown
Decorated with the newest of ribbons
And she promised me a new plaid
If I return home the way you found me.

From the description:

"A ghaoil, leig dhachaigh gum mhàthair mi " Love let me home to my mother performed by Julie Fowlis
Taken from Julie’s fourth studio album, this hypnotic and mysterious song tells the tale of a young girls’ encounter with the ‘each-uisge’ or water-horse."

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Scottish Legends: The each-uisge

"In Scottish mythology the each-uisge is a supernatural water horse that haunts the Highlands. The name each-uisge  means water horse in Scottish Gaelic. In Ireland the equivalent is the each-uisace, or Ech-Ushkya and on the Isle of Man they have the cabyll-ushtey."

https://folkrealmstudies.weebly.com/-scottish-legends-the-each-uisge.html

This "cultural memory" is an aspect of ancient Scottish folk music that I find quite intriguing.

Indeed and such a great visual analogy!

This source sheds further light on the legend and lyrics of - 
Love Let Me Home To My Mother

"The each uisge in human form is attractive and charming, but always has some features that give it away – horse’s hooves, for instance, or hair full of sand and seaweed, or a tendency to whinny in pain. In such cases where an each uisge lover was found out, it is usually killed by the girl’s father or brothers before it can devour her."

While true, I wasn't glorifying the conflict.  That song is actually a hymn, with several other verses that have been left out in that arrangement.  Put together that way, it serves as a nice call to arms to the native germanic people.  One they could stand to heed, before their migrant invasion goes much further.

To your point though, WW1 was such a horror because the tactics and weaponry were so unbalanced.  The weapons were state of the art, but the tactics inefficient.  If the first war had been fought with the efficiency of the second... I can't say who would have won, but it would have been over before the Americans got involved.

I didn't mean to insinuate you were glorifying the conflict. It was just such a turning point in combat ideals. The ideals of well bred men leading others into battle somewhat died in those trench lines.

It is also hard to know HOW to use new weapons when introduced to the battle field.

There had been over a thousand years of combat before the introduction of firearms. Then within just a few generations of men combat completely changed forever. Old combat traditions tend to die out in a most horribly, bloody way on battlefields.

So I was at a buddies house this evening, and he was just playing around on the piano. He was going over consonance and dissonance. There was much ensuing discussion over why some dissonance was pleasant to me. I had always learned that dissonance was to be unpleasant when it comes to music.

My knowledge of music theory could be held in a thimble with plenty of spare room. So I was wondering if someone on the board knew a bit more. Is it really just preference that decides these things? I thought there were mathematical functions in music and what is considered pleasant to the ear followed a mathematical function. Did I break my ears and brain at some point with too much thrash metal?

I don't pretend to know how it all works but I understand that the more complex the form and content of music the more leeway we appear to give it in terms of whether we find it pleasing or not.  Randomness eventually devolves into noise for me.  Probably explains why I dislike wind chimes but like Bach.   :shrug

*raises a hand* I was a music major at Brevard for two and a half years.

My personal take on it is this: if you have nothing but consonance in music, it's boring. Conversely, having nothing but dissonance is... wearing, tiring.  Going as far back as early Greek modes, that interplay between consonance and dissonance, the buildup of tension with dissonance then consonance, then more dissonance with a little consonance, is what makes good music.

Even thrash music uses these concepts (though at a great rate of speed and greatly condensed).  The last chord of the song, 99.9% of the time, is gonna be the root chord of the key, so that the song.. closes, for lack of a better term.

I took a summer camp at Brevard, before my junior year of high school, and a fellow attendee shared a really cool piece in the music appreciation class I took. I haven't been able to find, and I wish I could.

Anyway, it started off as static, then little bits of sound burst through, finally culminating in this full orchestral swell in this HUGE, glorious chord sequence.  It was called "Chaostrophe," and I'll be damned if I've been able to find it since (this was the summer of '91, looong before the web was a contender for information).

I approximated it for the website I had in college, but I doubt I have it in any workable format now (I think the last copy I had of it was in RealPlayer format, if that tells you anything).

That band is from Oslo. That's not "high lonesome", it is "high arctic".

We Americans tend to roll our eyes when an Englishman mentions 'ungrateful colonials' in jest.  We imagine that our cause was just, so no matter what the Brits think.  What we sometimes forget, is that other British colonies were less 'ungrateful.'  When Churchill needed an army to fight Hitler, the colonies answered.  Australia, South Africa, Rhodesia, India, Canada...  They all answered the call.  Then in the decades after the war, so many of them were left to float away without a paddle by Britain... :facepalm

Certainly, any debt that was 'owed' was squared up by our involvement in the first war, and well overpayed by involvement in the second.  Not that they haven't acted against their own interests to help us a time or two since.

Yup.  A good friend of mine is English and played the "ungrateful colonials" card early and often.  I pointed out that we would be happy to rejoin the commonwealth any time they thought it would be a good idea for us to adopt them as a colony.   :cool   These discussions usually take place over the course of several adult beverages.

Some Australians have a bit of "Australia first" grit to them. One only has to look towards Australian country music, in order to find fierce patriotism in that culture.

Now with that bit of history out of the way, I'm going to be all ethnocentric American and inject some of our musical history here  :neener .

I heard this song a few days ago and thought it was cool, but I didn't realise there was a historical story behind it and I'd like to share it with y'all.

The fact that they went for decades without being inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is incomprehensible to me.  :shrug  Their music was pretty cutting edge stuff back in the day - particularly with their early use of synthesizers and orchestral accompaniment.  They pretty much defined the genre of the themed album early on.  Anyway, I hope you enjoyed the blast from the past.   :cool

Pretty good.  I would call it more of a finger pick style.  Kinda like Chet Atkins. 

I am likely wrong but when I think flat picking, I think of the drop d style of Clarence White/Tony Rice.

Well, they were probably in on it but I think the beginnings of that movement were actually back in the 1960's.  John Hartford was playing that styles maybe as early as 1966-67.   
Title: Re: This is my jam.
Post by: Mikee5star on March 28, 2019, 01:29:32 am
Clarence White was playing professionally by 1958, when he was 14...  Not saying he invented the drop D tuning or that style, I do not know, I do know that he was a hugely influential guitar player who died too young. 

"New Grass" did start in the '60s and yes the White brothers were in at the beginning.  Clarence on guitar, Tony Rice still plays one of Clarence's old guitars that he got after his death in '73.  Roland on mandolin is a well know and well respected mandolin player.  Their big band was The Kentucky Colonels, which was formed around the three White boys, formed in the late '50s or early '60s.  They started playing as The Country Boys in 1954.

Title: Re: This is my jam.
Post by: coelacanth on March 28, 2019, 03:52:46 pm
Yup.  I think The Dillards were around back then or shortly thereafter as well.  John Hartford sort of became a protege of Earl Scruggs when he moved to Nashville in the sixties - picked up that style of banjo picking - and became pretty influential in his own right.  I think it was called "three finger" picking or something like that and it really took off in popularity.  Also, David Grisman was getting traditional bluegrass instruments into jazz styles pretty early and kind of pioneered that genre with his bunch.

All in all, a very rich musical vein if you're into digging through the old stuff.   :thumbup1

John Hartford played with the White Brothers on that same tour I posted yesterday, but I have not found any recordings of those shows yet.  I love that era, lots of older greats surrounding themselves with fantastic new talent.  Scruggs was famous for finding young musicians and mentoring them.  Recording tech prior to the '60s really leaves something to be desired much of the time.  But lots of great country, bluegrass, and folk music if you dig for it. 

Here is part of Clarence's unfinished solo album he was working on when he was killed.  After about 15 years of old time country and bluegrass, he started playing with the Byrds.  When that gig ended he reunited with his brothers while working on this solo project.  It is what a country rock/bluegrass fusion should sound like.

Here are the three ways that YouTube will attempt to “tackle hate”:

  • Removal of hateful and supremacist content from YouTube - Content that is inherently discriminatory on the basis of age, gender, race, caste, religion, sexual orientation or veteran status is prohibited. As is content denying “well-documented violent events” such as mass shootings or the Holocaust.
  • Reducing borderline content and harmful misinformation by raising up authoritative voices - YouTube is brimming with content that’s highly questionable, but doesn’t quite violate their community guidelines—like flat-earthers or other conspiracy theorists. So to curb the popularity of these videos, YouTube will instead recommend videos from more “authoritative sources” such as established news channels in its “next watch” panel.
  • Continuing to reward trusted creators and enforce our monetization policies - Channels that “repeatedly brush up against” YouTube’s hate speech policies are subject to monetization restrictions. They will no longer be able to run ads or use SuperChat, which allows channel subscribers to purchase extra chat features. This change is of particular interest since SuperChat previously creators to circumvent community guidelines in order to monetize hateful content.

Steven Crowder's  "Louder With Crowder" videos have become the canary in the coal mine for the latest authoritarian measures by the social media giant(s).  If you can't beat them in the arena of ideas - cheat.  The end justifies the means for this mob - just as it always does.  Situational ethics is a wonderful concept.  It allows the user so MUCH flexibility.  Truth and logic and reason - deployed against it must be stamped out immediately - because, "HATE SPEECH!".    :coffee

I don't think I'd count The Blaze and The Daily Wire as "non-partial sources".

The article I cited noted Louis Farrakhan and Alex Jones as both being sent off... seems even handed to me.

Of course it does.   :coffee    Who claimed impartiality?  On any side of this issue?  What sources have you referred to that could reasonably be considered "non-partial sources."?   :scrutiny    Partial or not, the truth is the truth and YouTube expressly said Mr. Crowder had not violated any of the terms of use.  Then they caught hell from the radical, militant wing of the left, caved in to that pressure and "de-monetized" Mr. Crowder on the YouTube service.  Your reference to Farrakhan and Jones is a month or two behind the curve in terms of relevance to what we were discussing and the action smacks of "tokenism", if I may borrow a word from the left.  Even the most casual investigation of Farrakhan reveals the ugly truth there and it has been flaunted for decades on any and every media outlet you can name - without consequence - until his words and actions became so egregious that even the left thought it an opportune time to throw him under the bus. 

Don't even pretend this is ethical and even-handed treatment of the situation and the parties involved here.    :coffee

I think it's really funny you're getting bent out of shape over this.

It's not like they're being asked to bake a cake or anything. They're just being asked to be the platform by which people broadcast views they disagree with.

So, do businesses have the right to withhold services from someone based on their political views or not?

The part that bothers me about this is that I'm not happy with YouTube for censoring, because I won't get to hear as many varied opinions (and YouTube is definitely my "new media" news source). Yet if I boycott YouTube, then I'm just cutting myself off from remaining obscure viewpoints that I wish to hear.

YouTube has a monopoly in this area of the internet. There's not really any competition for them.

The tension was evident on Tuesday, when YouTube said a prominent right-wing creator who used racial language and homophobic slurs to harass a journalist in videos on YouTube did not violate its policies. The decision set off a firestorm online, including accusations that YouTube was giving a free pass to some of its popular creators.

From : https://www.nytimes.com/2019/06/05/business/youtube-remove-extremist-videos.html (https://www.nytimes.com/2019/06/05/business/youtube-remove-extremist-videos.html)

Yeah, I'm sorry, but if the description is accurate, and he's using racist language and homophobic slurs to harass somebody? Fluff him.

To put it bluntly, that's not "sharing views".  You can share contrasting ideas and be civil. ^That^ ain't how you do it.

Youtube shared in their statement that Crowder did not harass Maza. That is why they 'only' demonetized his entire channel.

Crowder simply referred to the fellow in the same manner in which he referred to himself. The video was about debunking Maza's line of reasoning. Crowder has always been completely civil, and he was simply adding some comedic flair. It was not nearly as bad as most late night hosts get away with nightly on mainstream TV.

Maza is the only individual that has called for his followers to actively flag Crowder and to throw milkshakes at conservative speakers. Crowder has stated over and over for people to not harass or dox anyone.

Crowder's 'horrible' offenses has been referring to him as 'the queer mexican on Vox' and 'the gay anchor baby on Vox'. Which was only used AFTER Maza used those descriptors of himself. Maza's twitter is @gaywonk. So the fellow is putting this front and center himself.

Also Crowder has done these videos since 2014 debunking this fellow with the same 'horrible' offenses. It is only now that the fellow gets upset? Seems some odd timing to me, especially considering the turmoil Vox is encountering with its workers right now(strike going on and whatnot with significant layoffs due to failing channels.)

Crowder is running a show the same as any late night host on TV.

If you do not have the right to offend. Then you do not have the right to free speech. This is doubly true for comedy.

Post by: Plebian on June 11, 2019, 06:55:36 pm
My main issue is with Youtube only applying these terms to conservatives and not progressives. Maza has called on his followers to flag all of Crowder's videos. Which is stated as against Youtube's TOS, but Maza has not been demonetized or even asked to stop.

I truly hope this gets pushed into the courts. Hopefully they can finally decide if Youtube etc is a platform or a publisher. They were given special privileges under Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act. They were only chosen to get protections from lawsuits for what they publish if they are 'forums for a true diversity of political discourse.' They are meant to be open channels of communication not curators of acceptable opinion.

Almost all the social media sites have been using both sides of the platform and publisher protections. If these companies are going to be making editorial decisions (which is what this is). Then they are publishers with the full liability of their presented content.

Google has argued that restricting its right to censor would 'impose liability on YouTube as a publisher.' While also holding that its right to restrict political content is its “First Amendment protection for a publisher’s editorial judgments,” which “encompasses the choice of how to present, or even whether to present, particular content.”

They cannot be both. There needs to be a decision made one way or the other.

Why yes, yes there are.   So why not let the @gaywonk go use it and leave the guy with an order of magnitude more followers alone - especially since he hasn't committed any TOS infraction.  Seems to me that "go somewhere else" idea works both ways, no?   :coffee

As for your question, I don't know - do they?   Seems to me the SCOTUS decided a person's religious beliefs and the business practices they dictate cannot be trivialized by the state even when a pernicious attack by persons holding different beliefs is mounted in the legal system.

If you stop to think about it, any member of a minority (whatever it is) will tell you that there is a world of difference between a pejorative term coming from either oneself or someone within your minority, and someone from outside your group using the same pejorative.  Hence, the reason black folks are fine with calling each other n***a, and are insulted by n*****r.

I admit, it's a weird social construct I don't entirely get, but it's there, and it's broadly understood.  I guess it's the difference between your friends calling you an a**hole, and some random dude on the street shouting it at you.

And comedians get to cross those lines in the sake of comedy.

I also do not see how gay, queer OR Mexican is a pejorative term. It is a descriptive term used in that community to categorize. He did not use the term f*****, which is the pejorative.

Youtube could clearly see it was not harassment, BUT Crowder had to pay even when they agreed he did not violate their rules. Maza has broken TOS many, many times across multiple social media platforms. Yet he is part of the protected class and is beyond criticism.

You can nitpick as you seem want to do when your argument is solidly refuted, but it is clear enough to even Youtube that Crowder's actions were inline with normal comedic embellishment. Yet Crowder still had to pay.

If a 'minority' can simply call for action and gets it instantly. Then it would be hard to argue they are in need of protection. It would appear they are in the powerful position.

We were gathered 'round the garbage can passin' round the bottle, We were cold and burning anything, that was dry enough to burn.
A shakin' man said he had left his family back in Boston,
And I knew I'd hear a whole lot more, before it came my turn.
A bearded man in his army coat said the answer boys is Jesus,
The one called Joe said all I know is ain't January hell?
One guy said let's have a drink to Flagstaff Arizona?
And I thought I might freeze to death before id get to tell.

'Bout Mobile Bay , magnolia blossoms. Cool summer nights
Warm rollin' seas. And all my dreams, somewhere I'd lost 'em,
Mobile Bay, magnolia leaves, sweet Rosalee.
The sun was barely comin' up on the wrong side of Chicago
And I was cold and hungry and all the wine was gone.
People passed and pointed, said "there's another wino".
They didn't know that one more time my dreams would take me home.

Back to, Mobile Bay, magnolia blossoms. cool summer nights
Warm rollin' seas. And all my dreams, somewhere I'd lost 'em,
Mobile bay, magnolia leaves, sweet Rosalee.
