Because yes I sing it when it's on the radio.

Because I am Ironman!!!

Because I know I can't dance, and I don't care!!

Because damn right I like to embarrass myself in a car.

Because I have been here before.

Wow! He is 21 and clearly influenced by Woody, Ramblin' Jack, Johnny Cash, and Mississippi John Hurt.

I'm happy tonight listening to these songs.

herring has me hooked on Colter Wall . . . been listening this morning and still going. His guitar is awesome and yes, Johnny Cash does come to mind but he is so young that the voice and the face don't go together.

How about Merle Travis doing "Midnight Special" by Hudie Ledbeter AKA "Leadbelly"

The Midnight Special was a real train, the Southern Pacific Golden Gate Limited. Leadbelly popularized it upon his release from Sugar Land prison in Texas, where he could hear the Midnight Special come through. In the song, the light of the train gives the inmates hope.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cu7gafphe9M

I was just listening to my girl dog singing the "Hurry-up-and-Fix-My-Supper; I'm-a-Starved-to-Death-Pitiful-Girl" Blues.

Listening to some piano concerto on public radio.

High-brow stuff ;)

So many of the cartoons of my youth were filled with classical music 'riffs', when I started growing up, I was surprised at how much of the classical music I already was familiar with. One of my first 3 LP's was titled The Best In Ballet, again with the classical music I loved.

The other LP was Pay Boone (yeesh) and my dad gave me The Beach Boys album for my birthday that same year.Talk about your eclectic tastes! (I did not learn, however, how to do the Fandango until much later in life! :)
