The one who isn’t Willie Nelson.
On the one hand, he got famous singing about werewolves in London. That’s a plus. On the other, he got rich letting Linda Ronstadt cover his songs. That’s … I’m sorry. I just don’t like Linda Ronstadt.
I hate vocalese.*
(*Exception: Lambert, Henrdricks, & Ross, who are so hilarious and awesome that they were covered by none other than Joni Mitchell.)
Call me crazy, but I personally feel that if more Jesus freaks would sing about masturbation, the world would be a better place. (Plus: Inconclusive evidence as to whether lead singer Gordon Gano is gay. But, come on now … Violent Femmes?)
So there’s a long story about how a pairs team was skating to this song at one of Mark’s performances, and it was a song I remember my dad liked, and nobody could tell me what it was, so I set up a Pandora station of 60s easy listening tunes (which is right in my dad’s wheelhouse), and I suffered through months of Ferrante & Teicher and the Percy Faith Orchestra, and I was so brain-dead that when the song finally did come on, it was almost 3/4 over before I realized, “Wait! That’s the song!”
I should probably not give Vince Guaraldi a list for putting me through all that (FYI, the song is “Cast Your Fate to the Wind”), but how can you be mad at the man behind A Charlie Brown Christmas?
God bless Van Morrison. He settled into his musical and lyrical themes over 40 years ago, and he hasn’t budged an inch. And if God doesn’t bless someone who has lyrics like “You and I/And nature/And the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Ghost/In the garden,” then the rest of us are really in trouble.
For many years, Eddie Van Halen was married to actress Valerie Bertinelli. They also could have passed for identical twins, which was kind of creepy. Valerie Bertinell is from Wilmington (Claymont, actually, but come on … Claymont?), so Van Halen and I are practically related.
