As playlists go, this is short, but it says a lot. Not everyone has heard of John Prine, but he wrote many songs other people sing, and he sang a lot of them himself on various records, most of which I owned on vinyl. He has always been a favorite of mine, somehow cheering me up when I’m blue. So, whenever WordPress prompts for a playlist, he’s my go-to guy.
And lo and behold, there’s a new CD collection of his work available … just $10, double CD. I ordered it. Of course.
John Prine sings about life. He always had a sense of humor, too. He wrote great, witty lyrics, and singable melodies. What more do you need? Because to me, that’s music.
A sentiment … several sentiments … to which I can really relate. John Prine. Singing one of my favorites. Musical philosophy.
The meaning of life according to John Prine. He sums it up for me. Thanks John!
Finally, a musical look at aging. Talk about summing it up. Tom Paxton was always a favorite. Which shows my age as much as my shining silver hair.
