Another Blast From The Past

Indecision is a pain, especially when I am the one that cannot decide.

This week I just haven't been able to make up my mind, as to what band or theme to go with. Many times, I hear an old song that I haven't heard in a while and it will move me so much, I will make it the feature. I'll hear it, I'll go with it. Just like that.

This week, I have heard several songs that I could've done, but none of them made enough of an impression on me to jump on anything, so quickly. None of them were enough to say, "that's the one".

So, this week I thought I'd do a hodgepodge of things.

As I have said in the past, I am not a huge country fan. There are a few songs by a few artists that I like. But to say I like a country artist enough to buy a CD by them, it just doesn't happen (except for Willie Nelson). One song that I consider a very good one is a song by Dwight Yoakam.

It really works for me, it's called A Thousand Miles From Nowhere:



As long as we have a country theme going, here's a little country-rock. The band is the Outlaws, the song is You Are The Show:



One of the greater instrumentals of all time was done by a band called The Ventures, the year was 1960, the song was Walk, Don't Run:



And while we are on 1960s classics here's one by the great Johnny Rivers. This is a live performance of his signature song, Secret Agent Man:



Enjoy.

I love Willie Nelson. He can still sing great, but it is obvious he has smoked too much weed when he starts to talk.

Willie's the best.
