I feel like Leonard Cohen might be an aquired taste. If so I have aquired it; and I hope you do too! Here’s to the musician who has brought me to tears more than any other. ❤ Happy Music Monday!
Country music gets a bad rep; maybe it’s largely deserved that reputation in the past thirty-five years. But every now and then someone like Sturgill Simpson comes along and gives hope to the beautiful, raw, uniquely American genre that country music could be.
Here he is on NPR’s “Tiny Desk” series a little over a year ago.
Happy Music Monday!
Years ago, before I ever thought about my own small changes I found this list of Woody Guthrie’s New Year’s Resolutions on yum-and-yuck.blogspot.com. Not suprisingly, they’re spot on. And now for Music Monday, here is one of my all-time Woody Guthrie favorites performed by Wilco and Billy Bragg on Mermaid Avenue Vol. II. This song does not get old. ❤
