@vonny,
I love the Eagles, they are even better as they have matured.

Right now I have a CD 0f the Staple Singers playing, listening to Pops Staples singing 'Tryin' Time' he oozes soul. The song before was 'Respect Yourself', Mavis singing lead. Oooooh baby

I'm listening to rain on the window, the dog snoring, an airplane overhead and a couple of cars splashing down the road outside... and seagulls too.
Is that a train I hear?.

Definitely time for a tune.

@glitterbag,
Mavis Staples has got a set of lungs...I might mosey on over to Set's Singy Girls thread and post one of her tunes.

@panzade,
I saw Marvin Gaye live in a night club when I was about 21. He was extremely handsome and wore a snappy tux, very elegant.

I'm going to pull out one of the Marvin Gaye CD's, because I'm listening to Southern Culture on the Skids, suddenly I'm in the mood for some Marvin.

This is from the second one O Samba.

I'm in a sort of sad tune mood these days. This one is a current fave:

@najmelliw,
Even if one doesn't care for Nashville product these days, they write some powerful songs.
I found this background by the two writers Bill Anderson and Jon Randall interesting:
Quote:
"Jon Randall and I wrote the song together. Jon was going through some pretty rough times back then.

He had gotten a divorce and lost his writing deal and his record deal all within just a day or two of each other. And he went over to a friend's house and crashed for a couple of weeks.
When he decided to sober up and come back and join the living again, he apologized to his friend.
He said, 'Man, I'm sorry for the way I've acted the last couple of weeks.' And his friend said to him, 'That's alright Jon, I've put the bottle to my head and pulled the trigger a few times in my life.'

So when Jon came to the writing session, that was fresh on his mind. I went to the writing session with the idea to write a song called, 'Midnight Cigarette.' Basically that turned out to be the first line of 'Whiskey Lullaby': 'She put him out like the burnin' end of a midnight cigarette.'

That was what I wanted to write the whole song about. Jon loved that line so we wrote it down and then he said, "Here's a line here: 'He put that bottle to his head and pulled the trigger.'"
I said, 'Well, let's forget about the 'Midnight Cigarette.' Man, you've got the perfect idea for the song there.' And it just kind of flowed [from] there."

@panzade,
I fell instantly in love with the simple lyrics. The chorus (or bridge, or whatever the technical term for it is) is amazing. And Brad Paisly and Allison Kraus sound really good as well... Her voice is amazing!

Thanks for the post. I was wondering how they came up with such lines Smile

to keep in line with sad songs... there's this one as well:
