In anticipation of the March 1 release of a new retrospective The Best of Everything, a new previously unreleased and un-bootlegged song by Tom Petty & and the Heartbreakers was released this week called For Real. From listening to the lyrics, it sort of sounds like a manifesto on why musicians do what they do.
Can’t wait for the new retrospective. I still can’t believe he is gone.
I really like this song from their 2008 album of the same name. The hold steady have been around for a long time. And much of their music you can hear the Springsteen influences and Craig Finn has a way with words.
Just coming in under the wire for today. I’ve always loved this Steve Earle song. Protagonist of song is a total screw up who always forgets to do the stuff you’re supposed to do on Valentine’s Day – no flowers, no candy, no card.
” I know that I swore that I wouldn’t forget… I wrote it all down… I lost it I guess…”
But he just lays it all out there for his love about how he feels. Very touching and gets at the real meaning of the day.
“The way you love me everyday… is Valentine’s Day”
I may have posted this song last year for Valentine’s Day, what the heck, it’s a really good song.
Husband and wife team Susan Tedeschi and Derek Trucks (of Allman Brothers) put together a 12 piece band about 8 years ago and play great blend of rock and blues and inspired live shows of originals and covers. Here’s a new one
Some piano music for this Sunday morning from German pianist and composer Hauschka (Volker Bertelmann). From his just released album A Different Forest.
If you were a fan of Canadian music in the 1990s you might remember these guys. Their album “God Shuffled His Feet“ was/is a favorite of mine. Good Sunday morning song from that one.
