Song to get you through the weekend: "I'm Sorry Now/You Mama You" by Jude
I've been listening to a whole lot of one of my favorite singer-songwriters Jude's music this week, partly because my copy of Cuba arrived in the mail and partly because he's reentered the pop culture consciousness after he outed himself as a - *gasp* - conservative a few days ago (it's a good read).
I've been a fan of his ever since I was music director for my college radio station way back in the mid 90s. We received a copy of his 430 N. Harper Ave. one day and I was hooked ever since, following his career from indie to major label back to indie. Whenever he released an album, I bought it. Honestly, I never knew his political leanings all these years because he never interjects his views into his songs. What a concept!
Anyway, way to go, bud. Hope you enjoyed your career in the arts. :)
How about a bonus song? Here's "Gay Cowboy":
It was written back in 1999 or 2000, but became fortuitously relevant several years later.
