really, that should be don't touch me. i've been sick since early saturday morning. or late friday night. whatever one wishes to call it. a touch of the stomach flu i believe. but enough about that.
i have declared tuesdays new music tuesdays. i am going to see if i can post one song from each album i own. this should take about five years. :)
i thought long and hard about what song should be the first one. this is a song i've been listening to a lot lately. and singing over and over again in the car. it's by one of my all time favourite artists, mr. johnny cash. among the many things i love about johnny cash, is the fact that once he records a song, it's his. i remember once driving home, listening to the local 'alternative' radio station and thinking, this song, it sounds so familiar yet different. i finally realized it was soundgarden's 'rusty cage'. which i now think of as a johnny cash song.
here he covers a steve earle song. an artist i've recently rediscovered thru my project of listening to every cd i own. i got into a heated discussion with a friend of mine about steve earle vs bruce springsteen. i said the problem for me was that i didn't believe when springsteen sings. but when steve earle sings about hard times, i know he's lived them.
here it is. the inaugural track in new music tuesdays. it's from the 'unearthed' box set.
johnny cash - devil's right hand.
my fave line is
"loads a mite slow and i soon found out
it can get you into trouble but it can't get you out"
(ps... i'm not sure how long i am going to leave these tracks up for. i'm thinking of deleting them in a week. so get 'em while they last!)
new nook - There has been a great deal of hiatusing going on around these parts lately. The new hammock is an especially delicious place to read away those hot summe...
