Monday Musical Musings and Amusements

Taylor Hicks might be playing a Teen Angel on Broadway but there certainly is a plethora of music out in Internet Land about and around all sorts of Angels. I went in search for an old "Country and Western-type" song that a certain Taylor Hicks' fan was looking for and instead wandered into these little musical jewels. Not quite what the seeker might have been seeking, but nice tunes nonetheless. Hope you enjoy.

Willie Nelson and Ray Charles, "Seven Spanish Angels" video embedding disabled so man, go here, it's worth the click.

That brought me to this which has nothing to do with angels, but everything with a great combination of musicians working a great little tune.
Willie Nelson and Bob Dylan

video brought to us by KDANTEATER, gracias.

Angel flying too close to the ground
Fly on, fly on past the speed of sound
I'd rather see you up
Than see you down

Willie Nelson

Martina McBride, "A Broken Wing"
He loved to make her cry. "you’re crazy for believin’ you’ll ever leave the
Ground." he said "only angels know how to fly."
And with a broken wing, she still sings. she’ keeps an eye on the sky. with a
Broken wing, she carries her dreams. man, you ought to see her fly.

"A Broken Wing", embedding disabled so click on: Martina McBride.

Way across the valley on the mountain side
Poets are right of dying and they drink black wine
They dream a bout a hero with broken wings
And dance to join the devil
But it's not what it seems
And so it goes
The only trouble is we never know
Still looking for a reason but I'm not quite sure

Black Crowes

And a little sumpin'-sumpin' for another Taylor Fan.

Click the picture...
Above the planet on a wing and a prayer,
My grubby halo, a vapour trail in the empty air
Across the clouds I see my shadow fly
Out of the corner of my watering eye
A dream unthreatened by the morning light
Could blow this soul right through the roof of the night

...just an Earthbound misfit, I.

    Lovin all the angel songs, Youtube is having a few issues, taking things forever to come up. Seven Spanish Angels and Angel flyin to close to the ground two of my favorites.
    Love the Pink Floyd, Earthbound Misfit, sounds like me.
    Anyway, THIS ONE, had two lines that always made me think of someone.
    "Back door Baptist, with his share of front row sins" and "Angel with no halo and one wing in the fire."

  2. Yay, you found it! LOL Earthbound misfits, you and I both. ha.
    I'll put it up in front.

    Spent some time with your vids tonight. My favorite, by far is Willie "Angel Flying To Close To the Ground"
    That is to me one of the best love songs ever. "Leave me if you need to" so much better than "I can't live without you"
    Course you got me lost in youtube and I couldn't get out.
    Earthbound misfit for sure, I really don't fit altogether anywhere. This was an oasis of sanity tonight.
    The other night I was in the mood for a little classical and my searches led me to this guy. I was not familiar with him but he is amazing. An absolute genius. Very interesting bio. If you have the time to listen to this all the way through, its amazing where he goes with it. Gilles Apap.
