    Remember the Blues Brothers line  – “What kind of music do you usually have here”? “Oh,we got both kinds. We got Country and we got Western”!!

    A little Laura Marling with my maple pecan coffee on a Sunday evening. Life is good.

    @unseen, I really enjoyed the Bach and quad harpsichord piece you posted. Even with the four of them they were almost overpowered by the strings. I ran across this very young Slovenia orchestra doing this short Offenbach duet. See if you can isolate the mezzo. Normally I don’t care for many famous mezzosopranos. There are better versions of this tune out there, but this singer has a beautiful sound, great pitch and timing.

    PMJ makes me smile so much and I can’t stop watching but they get millions of views so I think y’all have probably seen them already so I won’t post any more unless someone says PMJ is new to them and so… well, let me know.

    Meanwhile that guitar sliding and pickin’ in Human blows me away and I watched it like six times in a row and I still can’t believe it. Yeah, just watched it again.

    I rarely get nostalgic, but here’s an iconic moment from 1983, recorded on film. (A song I think more people should see!)

    Jammed on that with my band last night and I happened to record it. I  would like to add it to our standard setlist

    Wow, what a coincidence!

    Are you performing on that recording, too? Is it an aerobic performance?

    I should post the lyrics for everyone (but I haven’t checked them):

    Heard of a van that is loaded with weapons,
    Packed up and ready to go
    Heard of some grave sites, out by the highway,
    A place where nobody knows

    The sound of gunfire, off in the distance,
    I’m getting used to it now
    Lived in a brownstone, lived in a ghetto,
    I’ve lived all over this town

    This ain’t no party, this ain’t no disco,
    This ain’t no fooling around
    No time for dancing, or lovey dovey,
    I ain’t got time for that now

    Transmit the message, to the receiver,
    Hope for an answer some day
    I got three passports, a couple of visas,
    You don’t even know my real name

    High on a hillside, the trucks are loading,
    Everything’s ready to roll
    I sleep in the daytime, I work in the nighttime,
    I might not ever get home

    This ain’t no party, this ain’t no disco,
    This ain’t no fooling around
    This ain’t no Mudd Club, or C. B. G. B.,
    I ain’t got time for that now

    Heard about Houston? Heard about Detroit?
    Heard about Pittsburgh, P. A.?
    You oughta know not to stand by the window
    Somebody see you up there

    I got some groceries, some peanut butter,
    To last a couple of days
    But I ain’t got no speakers, ain’t got no headphones,
    Ain’t got no records to play

    Why stay in college? Why go to night school?
    Gonna be different this time
    Can’t write a letter, can’t send no postcard,
    I ain’t got time for that now

    Trouble in transit, got through the roadblock,
    We blended in with the crowd
    We got computers, we’re tapping phone lines,
    I know that that ain’t allowed

    We dress like students, we dress like housewives,
    Or in a suit and a tie
    I changed my hairstyle, so many times now,
    I don’t know what I look like!

    You make me shiver, I feel so tender,
    We make a pretty good team
    Don’t get exhausted, I’ll do some driving,
    You ought to get you some sleep

    Burned all my notebooks, what good are notebooks?
    They won’t help me survive
    My chest is aching, burns like a furnace,
    The burning keeps me alive

    Yeah, I am playing the clavichord sounds…..It is a good song if you have a crowd dancing they will stay on the floor for that one. I wore out my scratchy “remain in light” record. Most of my Rocker friends were not fans, LOL.

    To me, Waits seems like a pretentious hipster,

    Give me an example of an UNpretentious hipster.
