Hey all you music lovin' Brokies,

   I was listening to Pam Tillis' Super Hits Album today.  I'm a fan of Ms.Tillis, and it struck me that there are some great songs and some made me think of Brokeback Mt.  Songs like One of Those Things, Let That Pony Run, In Between Dances, A Whisper and A Scream, Jagged Hearts...  The whole album is really fine.

   Eric, you oughta give it a listen and see if you feel the same way about any of those songs.  All are excellent, but you might feel one or two is better for the radio.

Those are my suggestions for today...  Hey, and I heard Wagoner's Lad off the Mark Twain Album on there today... Thanks for putting that on man! 

Yours truly,
Rayn

I'm not a huge fan of Gordon Lightfoot.  "Wreck Of The Edmund Fitzgerald" used to scare me when I was a kid (but so did "Stairway to Heaven," "Honey," and "Love Rollercoaster.").  He's got a great voice, but I don't always like his song selections. 

However, he does an interesting version of "First Time Ever I Saw Your Face."  It's folky and very different sounding from the Roberta Flack/Stereophonics version.  Peter, Paul, and Mary do a version similar to Lightfoot's. 

Because of the differences, I don't think it would take anything away from either version if both were played on the station. 

Yeah, he does have a great voice doesn't he? I am a huge fan, have been since I was very little, we always played his music and even before I could speak English (I am Dutch), I could sing along with his songs!

I saw him in concert in April of this year in New Jersey and got to meet him after the show, it was incredible!

        I just love Jim Croce.  I once had every one of his songs ever written and recorded, on 8 track...but alas.  His music covers so many
subjects..But is always very personal to him.....

Who did the excellent editing job on Brooks and Dunn's "Neon Moon," changing the line from "She'll come back someday," to "He's come back someday"? 



Muwahahahahaha... tee-hee.  :D

I'd like to suggest including some songs from husky-voiced gay icon, Dusty Springfield.

She has a deep, soulful voice that I think would be in keeping with the mood of Brokeback Mountain radio, and her songs address universal gay themes of unrequited love and love lost. Themes that Jack and Ennis could relate to.

Go here to read all the lyrics:

http://www.stlyrics.com/songs/d/dustyspringfield1296.html

Here are the lyrics of a couple of my favourite Dusty Springfield songs:

“I only want to be with you”

I don't know what it is that makes me love you so
I only know I never want to let you go
'Cause you've started something
Oh, can't you see?
That ever since we met
You've had a hold on me
It happens to be true
I only want to be with you

It doesn't matter where you go or what you do
I want to spend each moment of the day with you
Oh, look what has happened with just one kiss
I never knew that I could be in love like this
It's crazy but it's true
I only want to be with you

You stopped and smiled at me
And asked if I'd care to dance
I fell into your open arms
And I didn't stand a chance
Now listen honey
I just want to be beside you everywhere
As long as we're together, honey, I don't care
'Cause you've started something
Oh, can't you see?
That ever since we met
You've had a hold on me
No matter what you do
I only want to be with you

Oh, oh, you stopped and you smiled at me
And asked if I'd care to dance
I fell into your open arms
And I didn't stand a chance
Now hear me tell you
I just want to be beside you everywhere
As long as we're together, honey, I don't care
'Cause you've started something
Oh, can't you see?
That ever since we met
You've had a hold on me
No matter what you do
I only want to be with you
I said no matter, no matter what you do
I only want to be with you

“I just don’t know what to do with myself”

I just don't know what to do with myself
Don't know just what to do with myself
I'm so used to doing everything with you
Planning everything for two
And now that we're through

I just don't know what to do with my time
I'm so lonesome for you it's a crime
Going to the movie only makes me sad
Parties make me feel as bad
When I'm not with you
I just don't know what to do

Like a summer rose
It needs the sun and rain
Oh, I need your sweet love
To beat all the pain

I just don't know what to do with myself
I just don't know what to do with myself
Baby, if your new love ever turns you down
Come back, I will be around
Just waiting for you
I don't know what else to do

Like a summer rose
It needs the sun and rain
Oh, I need your sweet love
To beat all the pain

I don't know just what to do with myself
I don't know just what to do with myself
Baby, if your new love ever turns you down
Come on back, I will be around
Just waiting for you
I don't know what else to do, no, no, no
I don't know what else to do
I'm still so crazy for you, no, no, no, no
I don't know what else to do, no, no, no
I'm still so crazy for you

“Stay awhile”

Stay awhile, let me hold you
Stay awhile, 'til I've told you, oh, oh
Of the love that I feel tonight, oh yeah

Stay awhile, what's your hurry?
Stay awhile, 'cause I worry, oh
Any time that you're out of sight

I hate to see you go
Tell you what I'll do
I'll be good to you
I'll make you glad that you are mine
So come on baby

Treat me right, must you run now?
For the night's just begun now, oh
Honey please, won't you stay awhile with me?, oh yeah, yeah

Oh, I hate to see you go
Tell you what I'll do
I'll be good to you
I'll make you glad that you are mine
So come on baby

Treat me right, must you run now?
For the night's just begun now, oh
Honey please, won't you stay awhile with me?, oh yeah, yeah
Stay awhile with me.

 :(

There's a great story there, begging to be told, and I'd love to see Ang Lee do the telling.  :D

Maybe one day it'll come to a cinema near you!   :D

I'm a very patient man. Look how long it took to get the BBM film made.   :D

Many thanks for that info, Melissa.  :D
