yeah, when the simple expression of passion and honesty comes together in music its great.

-it makes no sense, it makes perfect sense

I find irony in your wording of passion and honesty in music. My life has been full of that, however UNFELT by others. Music has been my life force. Led Zeppelin in ways have brought me the utmost joy and love, and also brought on the lowest lows. I love the band and their music, I have to say because of them, indirectly, Ive had the most meaningful and tragic happenings in my life.

The day I stood in front of the 96/98 St. Marks Physical Graffiti building in New York City, I cried my eyes out.

Oh and yes, I dig Alejandro Escovedo, to get back on topic.

townes van zandt-lungs

great song!

Lungs sure is a great song! I love Townes Van Zandt!

I'm listening to John Prine, another great songwriter.

Please don't bury me

Woke up this morning

Put on my slippers

Walked in the kitchen and died

And oh what a feeling!

When my soul

Went thru the ceiling

And on up into heaven I did ride

When I got there they did say

John, it happened this way

You slipped upon the floor

And hit your head

And all the angels say

Just before you passed away

These were the very last words

That you said:

Chorus:

Please don't bury me

Down in that cold cold ground

No, I'd druther have "em" cut me up

And pass me all around

Throw my brain in a hurricane

And the blind can have my eyes

And the deaf can take both of my ears

If they don't mind the size

Give my stomach to Milwaukee

If they run out of beer

Put my socks in a cedar box

Just get "em" out of here

Venus de Milo can have my arms

Look out! I've got your nose

Sell my heart to the junkman

And give my love to Rose

Repeat Chorus

Give my feet to the footloose

Careless, fancy free

Give my knees to the needy

Don't pull that stuff on me

Hand me down my walking cane

It's a sin to tell a lie

Send my mouth way down south

And kiss my ass goodbye

Repeat Chorus

I just got a copy of this interview and performance of songs wtih -townes van zandt, 1990 and in regards to that song, he said he hoped ww3 doesnt happen, because sometimes songs have a way of predicting the future. if your interested in the recording, pm me. -townes van zandt mentions -john prine. -guy clark and others in the interview...its very interesting. He mentions his music hero, lightenin hopkins and in regards to the 50s, 70s and 90s with music...that if you wanted to hear lightenin hopkins youd have to go to houston and if you wanted to hear these other personal musical heroes of his, youd have to go to their houses, or parties of their friends.

Ofcourse as a led zep fan and considering the 70s, its just really cool and interesting to look at music from a perspective like that.
