“Two Trains” by Josie Bello, from the album “Can’t Go Home”

One our Favorite ladies recorded some great songs on her album Can’t go Home, this is a example of Josie’s great writing and performing.

 

 

“The Wayfarer” by Bruce Springsteen, from the album “Western Stars”

Couldn’t have a Song Of The Day without one from the Boss, one of the better songs of the newest album.

 

 

It’s the same sad story
Love and glory goin’ ’round and ’round
It’s the same old cliché
A wanderer on his way, slippin’ from town to town
Some find peace here on the sweet streets
The sweet streets of home
Where kindness falls and your heart calls 
For a permanent place of your own

I’m a wayfarer, baby
I drift from town to town
When everyone’s asleep and the midnight bells sound
My wheels are hissin’ up the highway
Spinning ’round and ’round

You start out slow in a sweet little bungalow
Something two can call home
Then rain comes fallin’
The blues come calling, and you’re left with a heart of stone

Some folks are inspired sitting by the fire
Slippers tucked under the bed
But when I go to sleep I can’t count sheep 
For the white lines in my head

I’m a wayfarer, baby
I roam from town to town
When everyone’s asleep and the midnight bells sound
My wheels are hissin’ up the highway
Spinning ’round and ’round

Where are you now? Where are you now?
Where are you now?

I’m a wayfarer, baby
I roam from town to town
When everyone’s asleep and the midnight bells sound
My wheels are hissin’ up the highway
Spinning ’round and ’round

I’m a wayfarer, baby, I’m a wayfarer, baby
I’m a wayfarer, baby, I’m a wayfarer, baby
I’m a wayfarer, baby, I’m a wayfarer, baby
I’m a wayfarer, baby, I’m a wayfarer, baby

“Fold Of Your Dress” by Rod Picott, from the album Tell The Truth & Shame The Devil.

 

Final track off the album has yet another haunted track. “Fold Of Your Dress” has Picott seeking out ways to disappear: “Pills make me rattle and cocaine’s worse/Whiskey is a slower ride to the hearse.” But it’s the connection he’s missing that haunts him the most: “Did I set you free just like I did the rest/Wish I was in the fold of your dress.” This is what Picott calls one of the “lighter” songs on the record. Clearly, the man’s been through some stuff.  ( Americana Highways provided the words )

 

 

One hell of an album that has got the reviewers raving with big words and phrases  “Anyone who’s gotten near or past 50 years old knows the existential ruminations that invariably ensue” 

Sorry but I’m over 60 and still feel like 18 and think like a 16 year old. Does that mean its a great album?

I think its  GREAT ALBUM and Mr. Picott does not like writing silly, glittery Pop.

The album is on regular play on TMEfm Radio and was provided by Adam Dawson who can promote great artists if not that famous.
