This has to be my favourite track of his. It goes on a bit, but I believe it is pure gold. I don't usually like it when artists tell stories but this one is great.
Brilliant song from The Boss. Buying that live album now!

Here's a very mellow but beautiful track from (ahem, cough, cough) Mark Knopfler (of Dire Straits)...

I have had that album for sometime. It is fantastic.

Here's another from it:



I like that one from Knopfler. Mr. Knopfler supported IIRC Dylan in Calgary recently. Dylan was slated, Knopfler was praised. I enjoyed his time with the Notting Hillbillies. Missing ... Presumed Innocent is great. Here's a flavour:

I have to remember not to think of Dumb & Dumber every time I hear this. Great song though:

I booked Crash Test Dummies to play our club in the '80s and they stood me up. They sent the standard cassette tape with 2 or 3 songs, (the Superman Song was 1 and I think Mmmmm Mmmmm was there too), I phoned Winnipeg and made the deal for them to play for the $300 or whatever it was and then all of a sudden they got famous and the Winnipeg Folk Fest offered them more money for the same weekend so they dumped us. The way I look at it they owe us one.

Went to see the "Dummies" live at a small venue before the were famous and have to admit that I can't stand that guys voice. Some of the gang at the gig liked it though.

His singing voice or how he speaks?

I really like Steve Earle. There are lots of great songs that he has written.

Here are a few I like:









One about events in Ontario:

Another good intro from the Boss, though on the song, would have to go with the Frankie Goes to Hollywood version (seriously).

My fave Notting Hillbillies song. As usual MK turns down his amp just as his guitar bit is getting sweet! Long time since I's seen the video though.

Steve Earle, cool, only heard the name before, but like these songs too. Thanks.

Ain't You Tube great for music !

Steve Earle is a lot more "rockie" live. On albums, he comes across a bit too "country" but his lyrics are very good. His life is a good read too.

Time for a bit of Britpop me thinks

Talking of classics, who's old enough to remember this? It really was ahead of its time:
