Despite all their faults, the red states make some damn good music. We’re having a red state music evening here.
After dinner, I taught the kids to sing “Oh, Lord, won’t you buy me a Mercedes-Benz.” We skipped the Southern Comfort, but we got the screech right. But then I got stuck on what came after “Oh Lord, won’t you buy me a night on the town,” so I started rifling through our stacks of CDs for Pearl. Couldn’t find it, but came across all sorts of other good stuff that have gotten buried under the Raffi disks. We’ve got a Maria McKee CD on right now. Next up is Lucinda Williams.
