Do you know I think this song may just have struck a chord with me?

Well, it finally happened. After 4 years of listening to RP nearly every work day, Jethro Tull - whose music I cannot stand (yeah, yeah, yeah, I know I'm in the minority here) and causes me to mute the sound on my computer - was followed by Patty Griffin - whose music I love (and the fact that I can hear a deep track once/day from RP is one of my favorite things about RP).  A true lesson in "take the good with the bad".  Touche, Bill & Rebecca, Touche.

Oh - and thanks for adding "You'll Remember" to the rotation. 

 

If you haven't found it yet, try pressing the "PSD" button when a tune you dislike comes along.  Play Something Different gives Radio Paradise another chance for the duration of one song.  Cool!

When I hear a Patty Griffin song, I ache to sing again. It's easy to mouth the words, but to get the most ethereal of vocals from those phonics is a talent few possess. Ms. Griffin knows how to coax the emotion out of a syllable. Not many artists can do that.  I love her music. {#Meditate}

Yeppers. As many times as I've heard her songs, they never fail to stop me in my tracks. Wonderful.

I used to use Cowboy Junkie's first album, the one recorded in the church. It was recorded directly onto digital, with one microphone, so a good system really reveals the sense of space, i.e. the size of the church itself.
