This song has cowbell and doesn't need any more cowbell
Edited on Sun Nov-30-08 02:30 AM by CreekDog
trivia: when this song was performed on Saturday Night Live, Chevy Chase played the cowbell. :think:

don't know what it is about her voice that sucks me in, but it does.

(Eva has a great voice and knows how to use it)

7. ooooohhh-ing and ahhh-ing
Edited on Sun Nov-30-08 02:59 AM by CreekDog
:loveya:

got to see her at San Francisco's "Strictly Bluegrass" right before Emmylou Harris came onstage.

main reason i got to know Alison Krauss (back in Union Station days) was because she did a wonderful cover of a Keith Whitley song, "When You Say Nothing At All".

I'm old enough that Whitley's version is always what I remember but her cover was incredible.

12. Iris DeMent is a very specific taste
:rofl: as you must know.

i prefer someone who has sung with her many times, Nanci Griffith and that leads me to a Nanci Griffith song sung by Kathy Mattea.

16. i'll keep my yap shut about Ms. DeMent
and this song from Prine and Griffith (a Prine song actually) is a keeper. I love it.

Love just about every song on that album and one of my favorites has Iris in it.

"This Old Town" sung by Nanci Griffith and Iris DeMent.

25. Same to you buddy.
Edited on Sun Nov-30-08 03:41 AM by CreekDog
I only started listening to Carly Simon because a friend told me Mary Chapin Carpenter reminded her of Simon. So I went and listened to those songs that I ignored as a kid and though wow, she really brings it.

Word of mouth is a great way to find music. :pals:

9. Speaking of melting, for me it's Mary Chapin Carpenter
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p8M8lssnf44&feature=rela...

i like how she adapted the poem by Robert Burns into quite a moving song.
