Wait a minute, mister, I didn't even kiss her.

Might be a couple of reasons I missed it.  I usually like more folk rock, and snappy rock & roll music.  Then, after the 60s, when I stopped dating, I stopped listening to the radio, so I missed a lot of music from the 70s on.

Geez, you must have missed my Mairsy Doats contribution! Not very thoughtful or introspective, I would think. However, I was trying to make a point of words, misunderstood, misinterpreted, and crazy making in political life. 

Sorry I didn't catch the political life word point, but you did get me singing it for a day.

Me, too, Spud. I couldn't get the tune out of my head. 

Yes, it's one of those tunes that is so catchy, I'm singing it for a day or more.  So far it's been 2 days.  More than a few hours and it becomes annoying.

Damned few musical statements I've ever heard have quite the same power or eloquence that Rickie Lee Jones finds with "Gravity:"



And near the close, there's that desperate reach for identity and relevance in the words:

I try to imagine another planet, another sun
Where I don't look like me
And everything I do matters...


I. Mean. Wow.

I like that line Bertold.

We can share the women, we can share the wine. We can share whatever we got of yours, 'cause we we done shared all of mine!

I said I'll hurry,
Gonna take my time,
A friend of the devil,
Is a friend of mine.

If I get home,
before daylight,
I just might get some sleep, tonight.

Friend of the Devil
Hunter/Garcia
