I had forgotten how sweet John Prine is.




I’m streaming tears rn. Part nostalgia, partly because these lyrics have a whole new meaning for me now, and finally just because I love his music and his heart so much.

Namaste y’all.

Then there’s the Happy Enchilada Song.

That was so good I listened to it twice and probably going to listen to it several more times.

I’m a folkie from way back. This, from 2008, is new to me, and made me smile. It’ll be my go-to listen all next week. :dance:

Bit of Irish showband music from 1991.



By the way, if you want t know what the chorus is about... yes its dirty. One of the reasons the song got so popular is that no-one understood what the song was about. :mrgreen:

Oh, addie. It’s back, innit? :? I thought it would never come.

I hope we at least get good music out of this crystalline nightmare.

Probably one of the best concerts I've ever been to in my life was some 25 years ago.

Tori Amos opened for Alanis Morristte.

And I managed to scalp in advance two tickets, direct center, 2nd row. (yes, they were $700ish -- way back then).

I offered the 2nd ticket to a teenage daughter of a co-worker who was a huge Alanis fan. (yeah, the XX aged something year old guy was chaperoning and paying for a concert for a teenage girl). Gay card has perks.

There is something about live performances (not lip sync concerts). Actual LIVE action and vocals. Not the bullshit productions of faked stage crap many concerts are now (sorry, if you are jumping around the stage and I don't hear you taking a breath, you are lip-syncing)

I was literally 12 feet away, at most. And both of them were singing and there nothing faked. And this was an outdoor amphitheater designed for perfect acoustics. Amazing.

So, on that:

For several years I was the band parent president of this band back in the '90's. This was the 1st year after my time. I attended this contest which runs all day and into the evening with about 40 bands from SE TX high schools. The largest schools go last so we were always in the evening.

That's so cool. I've mentioned in another thread I was AV dude in H.S. And as part of that, I got to tour with the marching band and record them on video tape at home and bused away games. Memories. :daydream:
