Musical palate cleanser: checking the calendar

From a timing standpoint, this tune seems appropriate – Whiskeytown’s great “16 Days”.

I love when that song kicks into the “old tin cups” part.

    Hell yes, Whiskeytown is outstanding!

    Also a fan of a lot of Ryan Adams solo stuff (Jacksonville City Night, Gold, Cold Roses) even though I know he can be a jerk and is easy to dislike.

    Pre-hair gel Ryan Adams is good stuff.

  3. I can’t believe you posted a Whiskeytown song here Senator. Great stuff. I got all RA’s musi. True, he never wrote a song he didn’t like, but man that dude could write some classics. Especially during his Whiskeytown days.

    Once I think you can’t get any cooler Senator, you continue to surprise.

    Nice! Was just listening to Easy Tiger from RA this morning. That’s a great, and timely, version.

  8. Its a good day when my favorite blog blends with one of my favorite artists. (Sigur Ros and Count Basie being two others…yea, I’m weird).

    Sure Ryan Adams is a dick, but hey, he wrote a song called Tennessee Sucks. And it ain’t that bad:

    I think it is required tailgate music every year for the Vols.
