Wont ya have a double with me?

by the Noisetts. Its been out about a year and plays in supermarkets now.


Agree one-thousand-percent and love that song! To me, it always sounded like a pre-addled Amy Winehouse fronting James Hunter's band. Very cool.

    Just heard a Kingston Trio number for Seafarer John, Michael Hoffman
    and any other old geezers besides me-----the retiree's song---

    "All The Hard Days Are Over"-----

    I sure hope so.  I had enough of them. 

    Go Irish, whip Purdue.

          Went to a party
          Danced all night
          Drank 16 beers
          And I started up a fight

            "When you're lost in the rain in Juarez and it's Easter time too
            When your gravity fails you and negativity don't pull you through
            Don't you put on any airs when you're lost on Rue Morgue Avenue
            They got some hungry creatures there, they'll surely make a mess out of you"

              Cowboys a'int easy to love and they're harder to hold,
              they'd rather give you a song than diamonds or gold

                  I took my love, I took it down
                  I climbed a mountain and I turned around
                  And I saw my reflection in the snow covered hills
                  ’til the landslide brought it down

                  ...Russ

                    Early one mornin’ the sun was shinin’,
                    I was layin’ in bed
                    Wond’rin’ if she’d changed at all
                    If her hair was still red.

                      "Rock and Roll, Hoochie Koo!

                      Well, I wasn't plannin' on that one, but I am SO digging this thread! 


                      To wit:
                      "Strap them kids in 
                      Give 'em a little bit of vodka 
                      in a cherry coke 
                      We're going to Oklahoma" ~~

                      Dayum Cosmos! I just saw Mr McMurtry a coupla months ago First show I've PAID for in years & "Choctow Bingo" IS my absolute favorite by him! 



                      & G59, I DO love Talking Heads for LO! these many years I have referred to them as "my favorite NEW band"
                       Saw them twict many years ago, 



                      THIS was the opener that I logged on to post before I got distracted: 

                      "I am an old woman 
                      Named after my Mother
                      My old man is another
                      Child that's grown old..."  (John Prine)


                      But Here Come The Twister (can't help it I think in lyrics when I'm endeavoring to give satisfaction at the Food Emporium & the total sale hits $18.14
                      I think, "In 1814 we took a little trip..." 
                      ("Battle Of New Orleans...")
                      But "Here Come The Twister..." 
                       
                      "We don't want your arm, we don't want your hand,
                      All we really want is for you to leave our land;
                      We don't want your foot, we don't want your toe,
                      All we really want is for you to pack and go;
                      We don't want your necks, we don't want your backs,
                      All we really want is for you to hit the tracks..."

                          Well, we got a storm lyric followed by a Randy Newman lyric, so....


                          What has happened down here is the winds have changed.
                          Clouds roll in from the north and it start to rain.
                          Rained real hard and it rained for a real long time,
                          six feet of water in the streets of Evangeline.

                            I couldn't choose which REK so I'm putting up both.

                            I crossed the desert on a dining car
                            In the spring of ninety-one
                            I met some people drinking at the bar
                            They were laughing having fun
                            I told 'em that I hadn't heard the joke
                            That was so hilarious
                            They said that I was just a dumb cowpoke
                            I didn't want to make a fuss
                            So I shot 'em down
                            One by one
                            Then I left 'em 'long the rails
                            I use my gun
                            Whenever kindness fails


                            ---

                            You take off from work a bit early
                            The boss doesn't care if you stay
                            The guard with the key has to check your ID
                            But he'd just as soon blow you away

                              Keeping the weather theme,


                              My love I am the speed of sound,
                              I left them motherless, fatherless
                              Their souls dangling inside out from their mouths...
                              But it's never enough
                              I want you

                                Sick at heart and lonely,
                                Deep in dark despair.
                                Thinking one thought only-
                                "Where is she, tell me where?"
                                And if she says to you
                                She don't love me,
                                Please give her my message.
                                Tell her of my plea.

                                And I know
                                That if she had me back again,
                                I would never make her sad.
                                I've got a heart full of soul.

                                            Not many love songs there. 

                                            Sad songs, stupid songs, songs of despair------------- 

                                            Did your generation have no joy, no happiness, no love???????????

                                            I like the sweet songs to which we danced with our love de jour -----

                                            Those were the days my friend, those were the days.

                                              You'd think that people would have had enough of silly love songs,
