    Patsy Cline

    OK, here's where I reveal just how country I really am. I've owned many, many albums in my lifetime but I think my favorite is still Patsy Cline's greatest hits. Here are the tracks:

    An honorable mention for my favorite album ever goes out to Cosmo's Factory, carnie nods toward Halifax. Warning: the links are for country fans only. Anyway, thoughts? Am I completely out of my mind?

    You are quite sane carnie. I am a country music fan too. Patsy Cline is one of the giants in pop music history. She is so influential on all of popular music.

    A couple of my personal favorites are Hank Williams Sr. and George Jones. I think Hank Sr. is a giant of popular music as well.

    Other country related favorites of mine are Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins, and Jerry Lee Lewis, and early Elvis Presley. Rockabilly has that country flavor for me.

    Also enjoy the country rock of the Byrds Sweetheart of the Rodeo album which has a couple of great Gram Parsons songs.

    As far as I'm concerned, country music is intertwined in all of American popular music.

    She was a great artist.  Now I have to apologize for this, but the first thing I thought of was the scene in The Simpsons when Homer is committed to a mental institution, and when Marge tries to call him, she gets put on hold and the song Crazy plays while she waits.

    I don't know much about Patsy, but I have more of an appreciation for country music now than ever before.  Many of the early female country singers were pioneers when they ventured into the male-dominated music industry, and their lives were not glitter and glamour; they worked very hard.   Despite her untimely death, Cline certainly seems to have made her mark.
    Thanks, Carnie.  Glad you shared your appreciation.

    Patsy Cline is a prime example of why I don't like to pigeonhole music into certain categories. She created great music, period. Doesn't matter what you call it. We should never limit our exposure to music based on how it is categorized, but follow our ears to what appeals to us.

    Posted by devildavid[/QUOTE]Thanks devildavid, those were some great tunes. I too love Hank (and there's only one Hank). George has one of the great voices in country music. The Bob Wills and Byrds tunes were great too. BTW did you know that Clarence White who played guitar with the Byrds was also a giant of bluegrass music? With the Kentucky Colonels. His brother Roland played mandolin. They were originally from Madawaska Maine, very close to my home turf. Have you heard Hank's grandson?

    The last link is a cover of one of his granddad's songs.
    Another of my favorite country songs is by a cat from Nova Scotia

    The thing I love about country music is that it fills a niche that the standards of the 30's and 40's once filled -- songs with great melodies that have wonderful lyrics -- lyrics that are poignant and/or clever.  Many of the songs also have a story arc to them that you don't find in many other artists' work.

    Rap has interesting lyrics, but it doesn't mesh that with melody.  And I can think of some artists who tell stories in their songs (Mark Knopfler's Prairie Wedding comes to mind), but there's not as much clever word play going on.


    carnie, what do you think of k.d. lang?  I love her early country stuff probably more than any of her later records.

    Patsy Cline ..... great vocals and music.  Of course most everybody knows Willie Nelson wrote "Crazy (For Loving You)" and Patsy Cline sang the big monster hit.
