Here are the first lines of all 14 songs. Recognize any?
Cassius Clay was hated more than Sonny Liston.
Sometimes I walk around town looking at faces.
He had a haircut like Martin Van Buren.
Come gather ’round me, people, here’s a story you never heard.
Dear Elaine, what have I done.
We drag our arrows up to the edge of town.
You know you sell yourself too short.
Wasted Words about an old love affair.
Sun through the curtains I gave you a sign.
I want to hold the hand inside you.
You gave your best shot.
Mamma’s in the kitchen rattlin’ pans and the baby cries.
They met one night at a party.
Come on in buddy.
Here, at long last, is a new RanchoCast, featuring a great cover by Jeanne Newhall, a Fred Neill classic, a new one by Futurebirds, a great alt. country number by The Dark Horses, my 3rd favorite Billy Preston song, a Hope Sandoval gem and a closing jam by Anders Osborne and Monk Boudreax.
Here’s a new RanchoCast, with seven excellent songs inspired by Valentine’s Day. This great set includes my favorite Valentine’s song ever, by Steeplejack, plus great songs by Bill Erikson, Bill Morrissey, the Boss, Joe Ely, Willie Nelson, and a live one by Ryan Adams.
