Jukebox: Sometimes you really need a song 11/07/2014 steeleweedMusic 5 Comments In a spirit of bitter irony… NEVER GIVE UP!
I Guess If No One Else…,
is going to drop a quarter in the jukebox…, I’ll offer up a couple of tunes from one of my new discoveries. An old Idaho boy that I am taking a real shine too.
Girl in the War
I’m with Scott R. – not sure what the theme is here, but here are the incomparable Rolling Stones, singing about a:
Street Fightin’ Man
(Still relevant 50 years later…)
More on the “bitter irony” side I would say:
Billy Bragg- “It says here”
The Specials: “Ghost Town”
Manic Street Preachers:”You Stole the Sun from My Heart”
Mark Knofler “Brothers in Arms”
if this one from The Band…,
The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down
fits into the ironic category or the never give up category…,
I must admit I’m partial to this version: The night they drove old Dixie down.
Bonus: The Band, Up On Cripple Creek
Something completely different: Outlaws: Green Grass and High Tides
