More Music...

..well, there is a time and a place for everything... and, right now it is time for more music.... The Wheel, to be exact... another nice on by Mr. Canfield...

... I have been on a vintage music kick for the past few weeks for some reason... I just get that way from time to time... Friday afternoon, I had "You Are My Sunshine" running through my brain.. and, it wouldn't leave... the version off the "O'Brother" soundtrack... man, it is one beautiful song.. full of sadness and longing... not at all, as some think, a children's song... for instance... here is how it begins..

...the other night Dear, as I lay sleeping..
...I dreamt I held you in my arms..
...when I awoke, Dear, I was mistaken...
...and I hung my head, and I cried...

...you are my sunshine, my only sunshine..
...you make me happy when skies are gray...
...you'll never know, Dear, how much I love you...
...please, don't take my sunshine away...

...children, that song touches my heart... I understand it... and, I love the incredible simplicity of it... in the end, I think I just dig songs about longing... it seems to me that.. if you ever finally manage to get everything you ever wanted, then the game is over... there is no more point in keeping breathing... we all should keep longing for something... ANYthing... this drive, I think, is what keeps us paying attention.... nothing to strive for?.. nothing to hunger for?... nothing to pursue?...then, you have nothing to live for...

Bullshit So Far

Good album. Union Station rocks when your in the mood for that sort of thing. And Alison Krause's voice gets my attention everytime.

Me, I just chase the wife around the house naked. That's what *I* live for :-)
