RAVINGS FROM A MAN WHO NEVER SLEEPS... 12/2
Honoring the first country star to make one of these musical salutes~HANK WILLIAMS! (remember you must have at least 30 songs on my iPod to make it)... Hank has 38 and I believe there's material I just have never heard so maybe I'll end up with more... His lyrics are so simplistic that I get jealous listening to them and I'm not even a songwriter (George Carlin used to do that to me... "How did I not see that joke" I would say to myself)... The song titles that make my list are so self-explanatory it's amazing, and I'm not forgetting those hummable melodies... and that voice... That yodeling thing he does never sounds corny... it's heart wrenching... There's a reason he is always mentioned as an influence by great songwriters... Spend the $15 to download these ten or simply buy the double PolyGram CD HANK WILLIAMS 40 GREATEST HITS... Here they are... MY TEN FAVORITE HANK WILLIAMS SONGS (All but one under 3 minutes long) (ALPHABETICAL ORDER)
- HEY GOOD LOOKIN'
- I'M SO LONESOME I COULD CRY
- LOVESICK BLUES
- MIND YOUR OWN BUSINESS
- MOVE IT ON OVER
- MY SON CALLS ANOTHER MAN DADDY
- RAMBLIN' MAN
- WEDDING BELLS
- WHY DON'T YOU LOVE ME
- YOUR CHEATIN' HEART

- ARE WE THE WAITING
- BASKET CASE
- BOULEVARD OF BROKEN DREAMS
- JESUS OF SUBURBIA etc

RAVINGS FROM A MAN WHO NEVER SLEEPS... 11/12
A little late for the Saturday morning music list but here goes-I know this sounds ridiculous but I have 402 FRANK SINATRA Songs on my iPod and that's with me deleting songs that I think are stupid or inadequate for him... One of the reasons why I do not buy modern day artists covering the Great American songbook Is because I already have all the songs by the Master, the Voice, the Greatest pop singer of all time... So like some other lists that I send out to you every week, these 10 favorite songs of mine could change daily... But I call them as I see them... And here are my 10 FAVORITE FRANK SINATRA SONGS In alphabetical order.
- ALL MY TOMORROWS (My wedding song)
- CALL ME IRRESPONSIBLE
- DON'T WORRY 'BOUT ME
- FLY ME TO THE MOON (Live at the Sands version)
- I'VE GOT THE WORLD ON A STRING
- I'VE GOT YOU UNDER MY SKIN
- NIGHT AND DAY (Capital version)
- SOLILOQUY (Reprise version)
- SUMMER WIND
- WHERE ON WHEN (Live at the Sands version)
- YOU MAKE ME FEEL SO YOUNG (Live at the Sands version)
RAVINGS FROM A MAN WHO NEVER SLEEPS... 11/02
It's time for THIS SATURDAY MORNING MUSIC LIST... Not every week am I going to feature an artist as popular as Elvis Presley or Elton John... But everyone should know the name of ENNIO MORRICONE Because he's one of the music giants of our lifetime who is responsible for some of the most spectacular soundtrack Music ever created... He's Quentin Tarantino's favorite soundtrack man and he has used much of his music in his movies... My brother turned me onto him many many moons ago and he has remained one of my favorites in my life... And he is still alive today living in Milan, at the age of 85... He played once with a thousand piece orchestra at Radio City Music Hall and it's one of the biggest regrets of my life I didn't go... Download these 10 songs and you'll thank me for it-(In alphabetical order by movie-If I don't list a particular track next to the movie then it means it's the main theme)
- A FISTFULL OF DOLLARS
- CINEMA PARADISO
- DUCK YOU SUCKER
- THE GOOD THE BAD AND THE UGLY (The ecstasy of Gold) (Trio)
- THE MISSION (Gabriel's oboe)
- MY NAME IS NOBODY
- ONCE UPON A TIME IN AMERICA (Deborah's's theme)
- ONCE UPON A TIME IN THE WEST (Man with a harmonica) & (Main theme)
- THE UNTOUCHABLES. (Death's theme)
