Musical palate cleanser: what’s that spell?

I like to think I’m a tolerant guy.  Most of the time, I’m willing to listen to an opposing point of view with an open mind.  But some things brook no dissent.  So when I proclaim this to be the greatest break up song in the history of recorded music, don’t bother to tell me differently.  (Definitely NSFW.  Because it has to be.)

That Jackson Browne verse slays me every time I hear it.

    “Yes I wish I was as mellow
    As for instance Jackson Browne
    But “fountains of sorrow” my a** m*th*r f*ck*r
    I hope you wind up in the ground”
    He had his harsh on for sure.

    Haven’t listened to any JB for a while. So thanks for reminding me. First time I saw him and David Lindley was at our Stegeman Coliseum! Don’t laugh but I saw BB King at the old gym that was later torn down. Played a lot racquet ball in that gym.

    I have been a Tonio fan for twenty plus years and have tried to alert everyone I know to the fact of his incredibly unappreciated genius. In a just world Tonio would be much better known; then again, if the world were just, we probably wouldn’t have a Tonio K and his cynical commentary. Thank you for this post.

    Not arguing merits here, but Ben Folds’ “Song for the dumped” is a fine example as well

      I hear ya….. but now that we have headed down this road I must add.
      “I had a sky blue ragtop Mustang, 1964
      She drove it off into the night ’til it just wouldn’t go no more
      She caught a ride on into town
      Bought some gas and laid the top down
      She burned that pony to the ground on the desert in New Mexico”

        “Don’t hit me no more mister, I’m dieing as fast as I can.” Good old Delbert, I guess this was before he met the woman with the big ol’ Oldsmobile. My favorite go to hell song,”Like A rolling Stone” by Bob Dylan.
