Fell in love with Kris Kristopherson when I was but a babe (yesterday?!?). Just about anything off the Silver Tongued Devil album. I call The Epitaph my theme song, and am quite partial to Breakdown.
Of the new, up, and coming, take a listen to Amanda Marshall's "Trust Me, This is Love". Very insightful for such a young soul. As always, comments change with the mood and in two days I'd have a different choice.
I was sitting in a beach-side bar in Tamarindo, Costa Rica, last week with what seemed to be the United Nations. The bar musician played and sang the latino rendering of "My Way". Talk about music being the Universal Language!! Swiss, Austrians, French, Ticos, Argentinians... Everyone but everyone knew the song word for word in their own language as recorded by however their country's version of Frank Sinatra is. This is a classic world-wide and after much debate, consensus was reached that it was an American, Sinatra song (not sure whether this is right or not, but we all decided it was). Interesting to me, I was the only person at the table, which included two young Americans, who remembered Elvis Presley doing the piece!
I'm rambling again... does it show that I'm bored on a Saturday night??
