Last Good Day of the Year - Cousteau

I don't know what it is about this song but whenever I hear it, I want to wear a dress and dance around barefoot :blush:

A dress like this:

My favourite guy playing a song off his new album Terraplane.

Thanks!

Maybe it has something to do with a software update.

This band, I think they're kind of interesting in how they rotate the singing duties from one song to the next. It's not really my scene, but Saoirse got me into them:

Also, I post it in here as something of an example for some of you (on BHM board) who are already making your own music. But, maybe, at times, are feeling limited by the quality of your own voice. As these guys, none of them- really, have any kind of spectacular singing talent. Because that's not really what any of it is about, the technical quality of a(nyone's) voice or any such instrument. It's really more about what you're doing with it. What you're saying, the substance. And the sincerity. The energy going into it and coming out.

I shall adopt you as my theme song, and I shall nickname you "OD's Theme Song."

Did I mention it's instrumental? Sorry about that. Not really.

The great white north, eh?
I needed some new music to listen to this morning (just one of those days) and you all delivered handsomely! Thanks Surly, Yakatori, Odette :)

BTW, the reason that I needed some other music was that this song has been stuck in my head since my son played the CD last night….country isn’t my thing, broadly speaking, but there are plenty of exceptions and Corb Lund is one of them. But although I like the song, 16 hours of it running through my head is enough now, so I'll pass it along to you all....

I like me some Corb Lund but Hayes Carll is the real deal. If you don't know his music, you should. A few good ones to start would be, Bad Liver And A Broken Heart, Little Rock, and She Left Me For Jesus.

No I'm off to spotify The Hurtin' Albertan!

Elton John's kind of interesting. I feel like he's both, simultaneously, under and overrated. Overrated by a large part of his fan-base (older gays who like piano bars & show-tunes, moms who like soft-rock hits). Still, too readily dismissed by many without much appreciation of whatever's solidly in those particular styles.

Which, I think, the campy sort of context he seems trapped in, has something to do with how much and fluidly he borrows from one genre to the next. Like the Dead or Stones; but, obviously, without that kind of live-performance following. Where quite as many musicians are both hearing and talking about it all together. And, that he's "just half" of a song-writing team of which the other half is largely invisible.

From one of my favorite of his albums:

I think he's had a pretty amazing career. He's talented enough to flow through each generation and be relevant. I really love going back though and revisiting where he started. His voice was strong and clear.
