Music Notes

I really shouldn't listen to Toby Keith's Get My Drink On when I'm driving. The song just demands dancin'.

Sugarland's Stay is brilliant: the simple musical accompaniment is exactly what the {freakin' awesome} lyrics need, as is the simple, stark video. Kudos!

I would love to hear Garth perform More than a Memory live. Tho' the studio version has plenty of power...

I really like Kenny Chesney's latest CD, Just Who I Am: Poets and Pirates. I'm really glad he released Shiftwork with George Strait: "Talkin' 'bout a bunch of shi-------ftwork. A big ole pile of shi-------ftwork." Lots o' fun. The first two singles (Never Wanted Nothing More, Don't Blink) are actually my least favorite songs - don't get me wrong, they're good songs and good singles, I just enjoy most of the other songs more: Dancin' for the Groceries, Scare Me, Demons, Better as a Memory, Just Not Today. Normally with a song as fun as Got a Little Crazy, I would say that I would love to see a video for it, but nothing they could do would compare with the video that plays in my head when I listen to it: "I think I feel a fresh tattoo / What is it of? I wish I knew / Couldn't get more out of sight / It got a little crazy last night"
