greatest song ever
A co-worker mentioned how he digs the Allman Brothers, which reminded me of these guys. It’s been a while since I’d listened to the North Mississippi Allstars, and realized that such a thing is a horrible mistake to make. When I first heard their sound, all I could think was that they should be huge, and it bothered me that more people didn’t know about them. Great rocking blues, with some Allman Brothers styling, but sweatier, dirtier, and nastier. From their 2000 album Shake Hands With Shorty, this is the greatest song ever (at least for today), Shake ‘Em On Down.
The doctors said that after heart surgery, I might react to things more emotionally than before. For the most part, that hasn't been true.
However, there's a song by Portugal. The Man that may be the greatest song ever recorded (at least for today): "People Say" from their wonderful and flowing 2009 album The Satanic Satanist, the line "all the soldiers say it'll be alright, we can make it through the war if we make it through the night" hits me a strange and powerful way.
This may be the greatest song ever recorded (at least for today).
It's called "off Road" - you can find it and mildly odder tracks on United Future Organization's self titled 1994 album at a significantly more listenable sample rate.
