Ray’s chat 102
It’s RAYS CHAT ONE HUNDRED AndTWO
I wanted something gentle to start with? and I Think that you might like this; Two of the Very Best of the Country guys got together and this gentle song is the result:
George Jones & Alan Jackson – “A Good Year for The Roses” 3.35
And How Do I Follow That!!!? It has to be Something out the Top Drawer.. I asked YOU TUBE and it came-up with this:
I wonder if you agree?
Alan Jackson – Remember When (Official Music Video) 4.26
But I guess some of the New Young guys might think this old stuff
Is just for older People/??;
So: I was wondering just Where Life is leading Us? and where Music styles will Go?.
There are some New Youngsters that writing GREAT stuff that I Like. I like this young guy
See what You think of this?
Jack Savoretti – Singing to Strangers [Interlude](Official Audio)2.54
Perhaps that is moving too far away from Folk?? But I like it.
OK: That was One of the newer guys:
BUT: Back to roots: There won’t be any doubts about this; Something for Everyone.
Artists of Then, and Forever Country 4.09
And thinking of Country Singers..
It is too long since We heard this Guy:
John Denver – Take Me Home, Country Roads (Audio) 3.1
Oh yes the Gentle songs
I know a Great IRISH Song that I would love to hear right now.. Oh YES!! Hear this and watch the Great Videos..
I have Always loved this song. Don’t miss this video it is a gem
Beautiful Country Folk Music ! Best Love Song! Most Romantic Love Songs! Top Irish Celtic Covers 4.02
AND DO watch the Video.
And then YOU TUBE Played this: a Song I did not know.
Lets Hear it:
I Don’t Feel Like Loving You Today, Gretchen Wilson, Jenny Daniels, Country Music Cover Song 2.45
And in my early days of Folk One of the Folk Duo that I really liked was called The Corries.. and YES I am going play one of theirsongs for you now: from the Good Old Old Days.
The Corries Johnny Lad 2.41
I always thought they were a real Great Duo.. But never got to see them for real.
Let’s have another from them:
And this is honestly the Best WILD ROVER I’ve ever heard.
And is surely the way Wild Rover Should be Sung:
The Corries – Wild Rover 5.08
Folk Singing at it’s best. Wish I could Hear it in the Club right Now!!
And here is another of the Old songs that they sing simply;
But so beautifully
The Corries- The Leaving of Liverpool 4.54
Oh Yes: just so simply sung. Yes the Corries were a truly Great Duo. See Why I rated them?
And another singer of that Period was LUKE KELLY.
For a long time He was front Man for the DUBLINERS.
AND: I was lucky enough to see and hear him sing as a Solo guy. OH!! He was good. He had a very strong voice and knew How to Present a Song. His very powerful voice didn’t need BIG accompaniment. Just listen to this:
Luke Kelly The Town I Loved So Well 8.09
Oh: I want to hear more of Luke.. What a Great Singer He was.
Luke Kelly: Dirty Old Town (1976) 3.45
Well I doubt that you will hear hear it sung better than that.
I count myself that I was lucky enough to hear him live.. a few times. OH Memories. He died in 1984: Thank you Luke.
So: Another Rays Chat has somehow drifted along;
With mostly older stuff.. But GREAT songs that I don’t want to forget. and here we are: Coming-Up to the Last Songs.
Oh: BUT WHAT SONGS?? So Many??
So I asked YOU TUBE, for the BEST Song of the 60’s.???
I wonder if you have an idea what That might be:??.– And this is what it came-up with:
Simon & Garfunkel – The Sound of Silence (from The Concert in Central Park) 3.17
I wonder if you think that’s the best song?
OR: Maybe you might choose??
Simon & Garfunkle – Bridge Over Troubled Water (Audio) 4.53
Till Next time: Wishing So Much that I could Be with You All.
Keep Smiling and Hoping.
