    Stealing the idea behind a long running thread on the GDP. What have you been listening to lately?

    I hadn't listened to Mary Lou Lord's 1998 album Got No Shadow in a long time. Great acoustic inspired, jangly pop.


    The song is called His Latest Flame. I wonder if the person who posted the video was making an editorial comment.

    My recent "out of the ordinary" listening has been my old vinyl Crusaders albums, Mongo Santa Maria, Bob James, Gato Barbiere, Grover Washington Jr., The Impressions.... These albums are all really old, but I still love 'em.

    I just got home from taking my wife lookin at holiday lights so I played Christmas with The Rat Pack.

    BUT before that I was listening to a mix of Taj Mahal, Metallica and Jackie Gleason albums on a shuffle.

    I never grow tired of Killing Joke. They excite me as much today as they did when as a schoolboy i first heard their sessions on John Peel in the late 70s. I used to listen to Peel every night with my headphones on under the bedcovers because bedtime was 9.30 on a school night.

    I spent the day with my es295 listening to Killing Joke and Elvis!

    I admit since it's Saturday and I didn't drive anywhere (radio), I have not listened to anything except the tunes in my head. Just kinda been too lazy to stream or play something from my own collection.

    BTW, the song currently stuck in my head is Whitney Houston "I Wanna Dance With Somebody".
    I'd post a link to the song/video but I ain't that cruel.

    Don't ya wanna dance, say ya wanna dance, don't ya wanna dance....

    My wife hates me when I do stuff like that.

    Billy and Tommy. I get a kick out of Billy's expressions, not to mention his flat pickin'. Tommy's not bad either!

    I recently found out that Paul Rodgers doesn't particularly care for playing piano live. He has to stare at his fingers.
    Great tune though.

    Today? So far, mostly songs with the words "girl" or "woman" in the titles. LoL!

    Some singer/songwriter things--
    John Hiatt---"Cry Love"
    "City of New Orleans"---Arlo Guthrie's take on Steve Goodman's tune (Willie Nelson does a great version as well)
    "Canadian Railroad Trilogy"---Gordon Lightfoot
    "Country Roads"---John Denver

    To me, these are as close to "perfect" songs as is humanly possible to attain. They need nothing added, nothing taken away, they tell a story, and present a beautiful mental image. Aside from the complexity of Lightfoot's tune, they're all easy enough for anyone to sing along.
