I have been really spending too much time thinking about this music video project. There is so much music that I really love, so many different artists and genres of music. I love the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Tom Waits, Mala Rodriguez, Sarah Mclachlan, Nirvana, Marco Antonio Solis, Reggae, Top 40 (rock and Latin), indie, bossa nova... a lot of stuff; anything that talks to me when I listen to it... you know the ones. As a general rule, however, I am not a Country Music fan but there are a couple of notable exceptions. I like Greg Brown and even though I think that he is more Folk sounding than anything else he is considered Country. There are a couple of others and while I don't want to make this into a Country Music Monday thing, I do want to add one singer who I think is probably not that well known outside of serious Country fans.
Don Williams is a singer that my father used to listen to and I have loved his music for as long as I can remember. I still think that he leans a little to the folk side of things; his music has more of a lullaby quality than any twang to it.
I still like the idea of two songs, and that may be the way I do this always.
We've Got a Good Fire Going. This song really captures the 'easy to listen to' quality of his voice.
Wow, as I try to decide what video to put up next I am really taken by just how much I really LOVE this guy. I don't listen to him ever (like I said... Country) but I am having a really hard time deciding what to put on for a second song. Here is a short list of must listen to songs of his:
- If You Could Read My Mind
- Another Time, Another Place
- Lord, I Hope This Day is Good
- I Believe In You
I don't know what to add, just listen to them all; but here is number two anyway:
Good Ole Boys Like Me
