"From day to day, just lettin' it ride,
you get so far away from how it feels inside.
You can't let go , 'cause you're afraid to fall,
but the may come when you can't feel at all."
One of my favorite artists of all time, I just love his take on the blues. Got a bunch of his records on wax, which I recently converted to MP3s. Here's the playlist for today:
- "Better Than the Rest" a.k.a. "Nadine"
- "Move It on Over" (my favorite!)
- "Bad to the Bone"

Cruising this week with the Son Volt discography ahead of seeing this year's version of the band at the Cat's Cradle on Saturday.
I find it slightly odd that I had a sudden urge to listen to QotSA yesterday, which just so happens to be the same day the band announced the release date of their new album, "...Like Clockwork." I also hate that I like this band so much, what with Josh Homme being such an a**hole and all that. I guess you just can't mess with genius sometimes.
Anyway, yeah, I breezed through their self-titled debut yesterday (the recent re-release, anyway), am currently listening to "R," and will finish up with their best album to date, "Song for the Deaf." I used to have "Lullabies to Paralyze" and "Era Vulgaris," but they've gotten lost in the ether of crashed harddrives, never to be heard from again....
