If you’ve ever been on a life-changing car ride in the rain, this song fits the mood. Everything feels like winter 19-seventy-shitty when it’s wet outside and you’re on your way to witness a wedding that shouldn’t happen or a funeral you can’t avoid. Tracking your future prospects in a foggy window while bridges with rivets blur by.

You’ve seen the movie “Wonder Boys” where Professor Trip and James are on the road? I’m talking about that kind of gray. Environmental and emotional. I love you if you’ve been there.

Listen, children …

It has been alleged that the FAA will never grant Mr. Stills another license to fly. If I’m wrong I’ll take that down.

Let’s put some more audio-coal on this lonely signal fire …
It’s 9:54 PM in my band of the world on a big fat October Thursday the 17th. The trash came today. Ran the bins out and hustled them back.

Does your life click like a ticket-taker’s punch every day you bustle from wakeup to lie-down?

This song brings that all down for me.

Here’s The Police with “So Lonely”

D.I. - “Pervert Nurse”

The Queers - “From Your Boy”
R.I.P. Hugh - you were a gentleman.

PROCOL HARUM - "Something’s Following Me"

TRICKY - "Black Steel"

BALTIMORIA - “Tarzan Boy”
There was a time when some of us fell asleep with transistor radios under our pillows - you’d lose battery power boosting the volume through ten pounds of feathers or space-age foam, but you could fall asleep listening to romantic stuff like this. I love YouTube solely for the fact that I get to see the artist’s dream on a studio’s promo budget. The choices, the results. Love me for loving this and we can work everything else out on our way to Vegas.

I’m coming back to this thread realizing some of my statements might have been unfair to people who live in Las Vegas.

OPUS - "Life Is Life"

SUPERTRAMP - "Take The Long Way Home"

This track is one I discovered from an amazing French film: “Un Prophete” - don’t google it, just watch it. And - Turner Cody sounds just a bit like Weird Al, no?

TURNER CODY - "Corner Of My Room"

THEE MIGHTY CAESARS - "Little By Little"

LITTLE WILLIE JOHN - "Need Your Love So Bad"

I’ve visited New York, I’ll never say I know it, but if you are someone who knows that town, this one’s for you. Lou Reed made this tune about an annual Halloween event, and his roll call of the good, the bad and the ugly of that scene is a poignant elegy for those who showed up one year, but didn’t return for the next, as folks died from HIV / AIDS. There’s no better sad song than this:

LOU REED - "Halloween Parade"

Here’s one of Keith Richards’ rare turns at lead vocals:
THE ROLLING STONES - "Before They Make Me Run"

STEVE EARLE & THE SUPERSUCKERS - “Before They Make Me Run” (cover)

THEE OH SEES - "Toe Cutter Thumb Buster"

WARREN ZEVON - "Carmelita"

MURRAY MCLAUCHLAN - “Carmelita” (cover)

G.G. ALLIN - “Carmelita” (cover)

I’d cut off a finger to be 1/4 as talented as this man:
SHAKEY GRAVES - “Roll The Bones” (Audiotree Live recording)

THE TRAGICALLY HIP - "The Darkest One"

THE HANSON BROTHERS - "My Girlfriend’s A Robot"

THE BRIAN JONESTOWN MASSACRE - “Anemone” (Cardinal Sessions recording)

If this one doesn’t put a spook up your spine, you’re not tuned in:
THE BLACK ANGELS - "Young Men Dead"

Sister E.J. - we’ve got updates my friend …
