led-zeppelin-loses-first-round-in-stairway-to-heaven-lawsuit/ the song in question that allegedly is the Spirit of stairway is in the link. I must say there is a whisper of Stairway, definitely Spirit, but how much? 15%? How about a wisp, less than a whisper. A whisper without her is just a wisp, literally.

I remember Duck and Cover but we didn't do the bomb shelter in the back yard thing. Wright Patterson Airforce Base was close enough that it put us on the top ten bombing sites list. Before noise abatement laws, fighter jets would fly over and break the sound barrier. The windows would rattle, shelves and cupboards would shake, it was really cool to a kid. The force from a jet 1000s of feet above was phenomenal, we could feel it too. I wonder if someone up on a ladder doing windows or painting got knocked down (I almost wrote knocked off, or is that 'bumped off'? or both?)

Off to the side are some other '50s clips. How to detect a communist. The guy with a disease of the mind,-the homosexual. Dating dos and don'ts.

The latest news shows how different times are today vs the '50s

To be able to sing is a wonderous gift. It must also be therapeautic for the singer, much as a meditation, a work out, a painting, or any expressionist art form.

House of the Rising Sun as a ballad is good. Great guitar work brings it to current art form from 19th century origination. 'tis a song that lends one to share feeling, if one has empathy (conservatives need not apply)*

*previous post was poetry for displaying talent or sharing oneself or one's essence. This one too, in the field of art talent. Singers, authors, actors, all get fulfillment from sharing their gift, talent, skill, or luck**

**Luck. is the current popularity and demand for assholes. Radio jerks, fox, columnists, and more comprising the cottage industry of assholarity (popularity of assholes) or assholology- (the science of social assholes, not proctology), The PHDs of assholedom like Rush or Hannity, are not even certified or licensed, so to become a successful asshole, I guess you just need a mic. I understand there is an intern program or apprentice opportunities for jerks, and dickheads, to climb and achieve their wishes of becoming a Complete Asshole, but scholarships are not publicized.

Matchbox 20, and Sister Hazel were linked on my Pandora channel for Shawn Mullins, then I switched to Poco, my Buffalo Springfield/CSNY bias, and Stevie Nicks was offered. then Greg Allman. Damn, it's all good. I just feed it from laptop via USB WiFi to a remote base and treble pair. Jackson Browne just came up. This service knows my taste!

I let Amazon track my searches and purchases, too. Being offered a book is different than being prompted for penis enlargement or erection pills, at least for me it is.

Yep, tried that wifi thing to my mini, for some reason it won't accept that signal without switching to the internal dac. Which means of course the music........doesn't sound much like music even though playing it through the stereo. I do admit to being rather picky about my sounds. If I have one vice I'm kinda ashamed of admitting to it's that my pre amp and power amp alone probably use enough electricity to run a small house hold.

I've given up on trying to make U-tube work with the sound system as I only use U-tube offerings for sharing anyways. So todays mood is a little dirty sounding so if the loudness police stop by, tell'em to screw off, you've paid your dues.

I hear this is some kind of religious holiday, so for me I thought I would respect the sombre nature of it and offer a Spiritual. I could drink a Rusty Nail* and think of stoning and crucifiction, but tonight it's Tillamore D.E.W. (the initials of the distiller)

*This really should be the traditional drink on this holiday.

btw, Pandora cannel keyed to Van Morrison has brought me Dylan, Ray Charles (she suffered imo being named after a backwoods KKK center), Marshall Tucker, and more, plus of course the host, the soul preacher, Van. If any way one can feel what another is feeling, he exudes that possibility. He gets me to FEEL, not just listen.

@46:00 +/- For What it's Worth

Further on-[@56:30+/-] Wooden Ships, "Can you tell me please. who won the war?" Stills gives an electrifying performance @1:00:00.+/-

@1:14:00 +/- 'Our House' accoustic is not as saccharin as the original.

@1:22:00+/- Teach Your Children Well is pleasantly paradoxically poignant, I'm listening on a usb wifi to remote base and treble that my children taught me.

@18:00+/- "I Feel Fine" intro

A lot of the great ballad songs have a question in the lyrics. So I was thinking (I know that's dangerous):

Why do I want you to ask?

Just ask me.

Do I know who I am or what is me?

Just ask me

What do I think of the future or what's to be?

Just ask me

The future of men that want to be free

Requires a healthy embrace of enquirey

I think this is clear to those that can see

At least that is how it appears clearly to me

(if offered as a song one needs a key, I thought maybe b or c or maybe even d, but what do I know that's just me)

I've always been partial to D myself, pull out the geetar and work it out just for fun.

Yeah, yesterday was one of those kind of days and today doesn't promise to be any better. This is probably the only time I'll have unless something changes. I'll listen to that CSN when I get the time in the house. I've decided on the speakers I want for my desk out here but I'm having a hard time justifying the cost for the mere act of monitoring. This morning I walked into the shop with Rattle and Hum playing on it's loop from yesterday, I'm gonna to listen to it one more time through. Then I'm going to go to this album for awhile;

Did somebody say spiritual?

I prefer my spirituality subtle and inclusive:

Nothing subtle about invoking the name of God, but inclusion in spite of differing opinions on religion is spiritual, is it not?:

On this Good Friday I must share a song about the Samaritan Woman at Jacob’s Well in Sychar who met this Strange Man. Subtle or not so much? Yet all about inclusion:

Any other favorite “spiritual” songs?

aka Sumerian Women was a treat, Donna must have ripped out her vocal cords on that piece. And Bothers & Sisters is a must.

The only copy I have of Strange Man is from a friend of a friend that live copied it at a concert at Moore's Egyptian Theater the same year of that utube clip. My friend received it via Memorex cassette tape that he said was impossible to listen to. He gave it to another friend that was doing some work for the head of Sony(?) studios that cleaned up the entire 3 sets for him. So now I'm fortunate enough to have a very clean recording of that concert. So I guess you could say it came through a friend of a friend of a friend of a friend of a friend, ah whatever, I've lost count. It's an awsome concert, Jerry was on top of his game for that tour. I can't find the exact rendition of my recording on utube but I'm listening to a Russian Lullaby from that reclaimed tape as I type this; though from a couple of years later;

Heres what I think is the interesting (albeit small part of the) family tree of a familiar song we all know. I think this made it first debute in a Abbot & Costello film by this lady;

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mb9nR0B_z18

made into a hit by this fine lass;

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2IHnkiXMrWY

And with a bit of word substitution and rythmn work it turned into this gem;

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ci4EQDD4CqA

A bit more rythmn and Johnny Burnette got yet another hit out of what by this time had become a standard cover (in 1956);

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ufzRV3xspYA

Now I know it's starting to sound familiar to ya. We can jump to mid 60's and a minor hit for the Yardbirds;

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cd1gRHk28IE

And finally we're to the song everyone younger than 50 grew up with though I don't feel they really hit their stride till the Toys In the Attic album.

Ugh, spiritual tunes...they're all spiritual to me (depending on my mood) so I don't really know how to respond or add to the connection or bring in a segue.

Maybe, a peace refrain from long ago?

Is it required for there to be one asshole in every concert? Neil Young's response was perfect. Jesus don't like killin' no matter what the reason's for, your flag lapel pin won't get you into heaven anymore. This fits with the blind patriotism Ochs saw in the Green Beret John Wayne film. Wayne did not serve in WWll. JFK , LBJ, and GHW did, Jimmy Stewart was a bomber pilot and made General. Reagan didn't serve but made films or USO.

If there is one album I have played more than any other, it was Aerosmith's first album. It had a Rufus Thomas song "Walkin the Dog":

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M6AZNywvF-s

Of course, I had no idea who Rufus Thomas was at the time and had yet to even hear the Stones cover of the same tune.

It's a beautiful thing when an artist covers a great song that could get lost into history if not for their playing it to a new audience at a later time. I think the Dead covered that one a few times.

Ernie Kovacs The Office

Shows his eye for the visual in a young medium called TV. I was scraping a toast piece this AM for my kid and remembered a bit with a toast scrape set to music. Haven't found it yet but this is good, and I remember it too.

The Kitchen Symphony

There's a bread box in it. In a question game 'What am I', "Is it Bigger than a bread box?" was one of the questions (besides animal*, vegetable, mineral) No one today would know what a bread box is.

* When I was in third grade I explained to a girl that she was an animal. "Teacher, Doug said I was an animal" -"You're a human" (as she looked at me with a raised eyebrow)- - then she did this 'nyeah' and stuck her tongue out at me.

OK, how about a quiz? I'll post some lyrics, you name the tune:

I said, the first day I met you
"Someday, I'm gonna pet you"
Now you're here and baby I love it
So come on and give me some lovin'

My, my, my, my baby, now you're outta sight

You look a little naughty but you're so polite
You won't say you will but there's a chance that you might

You've got a sweet disposition
So come on and give me permission
For one kiss and maybe another
We'll see if we're meant for each other

I would file this genre under pubescent hormones, but what do I know?

I was going to post elsewhere the written version of a poem I read, but found an oral version by one Johnny Cash. No slight orator he, and he tells the tale of the end of a friend and +The+Cremation+Of+Sam+McGee

by Robert Service, he also penned The Shooting of Dan McGrew.

I like that style, past tense verb + 3 syllable name with a Scots Irish tone

The Deflowering of douglaslee (bear with me now it's not TMI but the name fit)

With her legs spread

the words she then said

woops, that was the link for a post on the Hogwash thread. Mark Knopfler and friends at Albert Hall was my intent, bet it was Jesus' fault.

Found it again maybe because I sent 18 million dollars to friends of Jesus? In the side bar options some great versions of Sweet Home Chicago, but Asylum Choir has them all beat. Listen to the next song Down on the Base withn great lyrics "He'll give a dollar for your fingers, 2 dollars for your eyes, you'll pay price of freedom boys you realize?" this was during Viet Nam.

One Tiny Thing 8in8 is a fluke . I watched an old Perry Mason from it's first season, and the credits showed Barbara Eden. Before Dream of Genie she did an Elvis film and Brothers Grimm in Cinerama. I knew cinerama from How the West was Won and linked to a "Last Cinerama" film clip, a retrospective of film tech short done in LA. The song is in the film and has a line "One tiny thing, one tiny stone in the pond" etc.

8in8 does a few other songs, one "Mirror Self" hits on a point Zenzoe made in another thread.

8in8 does 'problem with saints ' and 'because of origami' and Nicklaus Tesla. The Tesla song has a line 'I met Tesla', well I met Rene Descartes one time. He was in a pub in London and I was so excited and seeing him finish his beer thought I'd buy him another. I asked him if he would like another. He said "I think not" and as I looked up from my wallet he had vanished.
