As of the last two days or so, I've been bewitched, bothered, and bewildered by Fiona Apple's version of "Why Try To Change Me Now?". I'm almost pretty sure that I'm almost ready to decide that I almost like her version of it better than Frank Sinatra's.

...

Aw, heck. Enough pussyfooting. 'Far as I'm concerned, hers blows Frank's version away.

So, without further ados, ...

Here she is:

Anyways, ...

Question(s):

Have you been "obsessing" about any songs lately? If so, care to share?

I'm a fan of Suits, and here's where the theme song comes from:

Ima Robot

Same thing happened with the Sopranos with me. I had to know where that lyric came from, got yerself a gun.

Yep, A3:

Got yerself a gun

Art as predictive of reality. Guess an Ima Robot album is in store. Already have A3 on the audio card through the bookshelf stereo.

Josh Turner's Icon.

It's going to be the first of my CD's that I rip so I can load it to my smartphone. Figure I might as well get some music under the helmet.

That's not my kind of music - at all - but I couldn't stop watching the performance.

**************************

I recently downloaded Paul McCartney's Ram, plus Wingspan, a few weeks back when Amazon was putting his stuff on sale. My older sister had Too Many People/Uncle Albert Admiral Halsey on an Apple 45 rpm, and that was one of the few records I had to listen to as a kid. Those are two of the songs that bring me back in time. The old McCartney stuff really has a nice Beatles vibe to it, but unlike Beatles music I hadn't heard it a hundred times, so it was a nice find after all these years.

A friend emailed me ...

Carly Rose Sonenclar, doing "Feeling Good":

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iAJyoiQEQco...layer_embedded#!

No match for Nina Simone's version, of course. A bit hard to imagine that anyone could get there.

But she's got time to at least try to get close. After all, she's only ... 13.

Enjoy.

Listening to Green Day's new "Dos!" Great record (why do we still call them "records," anyway?), a bit different than their usual stuff. (Only $5 for a few more days.)

Recently I have been enjoying my mellower Pandora Stations.

I think that Brandi Carlile and the Civil Wars (oddly they broke up) are very strong musical acts. The former draws me in and makes me listen to her style of singing and I find myself drawn into the lyrics by her unique style.

The Civil Wars have a transfixing style of singing that draws me in and I never know or care what the lyrics are doing.

Christina Perri is running right now. I find her to have a strong pop personality that is dramatic but of substance. I wanted to dismiss her as a one hit wonder pop star, but I find myself stopping and listening carefully with many of her tracks and now I root for a series of tracks to come out in future months and years.

I don;t really know what it is about Birdy, but her singing voice haunts me and lingers for hours when I hear one of her tracks.

The Sound of silence...

There are no random fireworks going off, no sirens, even PE's computer is running quietly... (Mine's still in the shop.) I need to remember to hit the mute button and turn the sound back on before I shut this down...

Eve of Destruction - Barry Mcguire

Been getting in to this one a bit, I'm somewhat fascinated with why people have been fascinated about the end of the world.
It seems to be a popular idea lately. Weird when things have been so screwed up that a huge chunk of people believe our time is coming.

St. Vincent performed on Colbert this week, and that led me to do some YouTube poking around. It's a blend of techno and what might be considered fringe rock, a little like the guitar work in many Jethro Tull hits.

Can't get it out of my head now. It's not music I'd want to play, but it is stuff I'd listen to more than once. Seems dependent on the video too, so a blending of art media.

I'm listening to lots of Fleetwood Mac lately, Stevie Nicks is amazing. Take a look at this live performance from 1976....

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SsOkqdRHhoc

They perform the song Rhiannon on The Midnight Special. She's so passionate when she sings, you can tell she really gets into it. So much talent.

The studio recorded version is also good, this version has lyrics...

I'm generally not a big fan of rap, but I am a big fan of free stuff. Recently, De La Soul was giving away their whole catalog for free, so I pounced. I remembered "Me Myself and I" from way back when, and I liked that song.

It's not too polished, but the music is fun when you are in the right mood. I'm really enjoying it.

This came across my radar:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a39V_15n_Gc

It's a bit long, but you get a lot of treats if you like really good guitar players (and of course the other musicians).

You can see and hear James Taylor try to sing the blues. That funny guy playing guitar with him? Oh yeah, he's that burnout who actually defined rock for a generation of late baby boomers. Walsh something.

Guess you do have to be pretty old to recognize all the players. Some of the really old blues guys I had not heard about, maybe a name dropped here and there. Good roots stuff.

Clapton is always around, except when he isn't and isn't needed. That was nice.

Guess he arranged the whole deal. Man, what a thing, eh? Made me stick all my pride into a tiny little box; who can possibly play like that effortlessly (yeah, I know, twenty-plus-plus years of effort behind it)?

I've got a few tunes left over to get lost in. That's still good. But how personal is it that these people touch one note and immediately identify themselves? It's an astounding phenomenon.
