Tonight, making food in the kitchen and listening to my ipod. I have a mix of all kinds of things I like. Two things I especially enjoyed tonight were 'Let the Riverrun' by Carly Simon, and 'You Never Even Called Me By My Name' by David Allen Coe.

First of all-- Both these songs date me as very old!

Also the tunes are nice, but they are really more about lyrics. No surprise there. The first is quite luminous, and the second is silly and fun. I like the accents in the second one. I did not like some things about living in the South, but the accents are pleasant.

I love to have my music, too. Everything from Barbershop to '50s Rock and Roll and the Beatles,to Susan Boyle and 'church' music.

"Old" is in your head. I was born in '44, but I'm not old!! I have a part time job, cook and clean and shop,stay conversant with LJ and FB and the things my kids are into. "Old" will be when I'm no longer interested in new stuff and stay home all day by myself.

Of course, the David Allen Coe song is the "perfect Country and Western song"... once the writer sent along the final verse!

That's right. That song cracks me up every time. But it is also am example of brevity in writing. There is a whole world in that last verse.

'I was drunk the day my mom got out of prison...'

Without music, I would die. Sometimes I even avoid special songs, or I'm the whole day in tears...

Yes, the last line holds a universe.
