I get to delay my decision–John Hiatt or Memphis–for at least one more day. Because, when it comes to Memphis, there is only one King. Today, you’re ridin’ with him.  BTW, if you don’t like this, move to Russia:

I can go one of two ways this week–Memphis-themed songs, or songs by John Hiatt. Haven’t decided yet:

La Somnambula’s sign-off song comes from…the sylvan burg of Ardentown.  Richard Julian, a great songwriter, who has written for Norah Jones and has performed with Bonnie Raitt, Marshall Crenshaw and many others.  This may well be my fave of his:

Both Somnambulo/Somnambula agree on this one. In fact, if memory serves, this was my fave Tune Of The Year awhile back. I think Nathan Arizona will approve:

La Somnambula‘s choice today is from an epic performer.  An instant classic:

Might even be stronger than Part Un.  But that’s for you to decide: I’m 67 years old. Why do I find music from this teenager to be so compelling?: I want them at the Arden Gild Hall. Working on it…: They’re gonna be big. REAL big: We close with the most age-appropriate tune o’ the […]

La Somnambula‘s Day 3 choice is a great one: Like a lot of people, I saw the documentary film Paradise Lost and was deeply affected by the plight of the West Memphis Three. I wrote this song with Jimmy Bruno. The State of Arkansas seems to be in no hurry to publicly admit to the […]

‘Bulo’s Fave Tunes For April, 2018: Part One

Best musical month of the year by far. So I divided this feature up into two parts with the songs organized in alphabetical order by title. BTW, Kamasi Washington’s ‘Fists Of Fury’ belongs here, but I could only find a one-minute snippet on Youtube.  Well worth checking out, though.  Time for some music: I want […]

This has been one of La Somnambula’s faves since before we met. Too bad that The Blessing didn’t have a few more of them:

La Somnambula takes the reins this week.  I agree with every single one of her choices (I want to continue to eat well and, well, they really are good choices). This song, of course, was inspired by perhaps the very first of America’s mass school shootings, memorialized here. Some of you youngsters may not even […]
