|Send Me Your Top 10 Blues Songs|
As an addition to the collection of blues I’ll have up (hopefully by November) I want to have a reader’s choice section. The first one will be the blues stuff you gotta hear (Love in Vain, Backwater Blues etc) the next one will be my picks (Death Sting Me Blues) and the third will be y’all’s picks.
Send your top 10 (20, 30, 40, 50) blues songs to pkpatnaik at prewarblues.org. Let’s try to do this by the end of next week so November, 5. They don’t have to be pre-war, but let’s keep it some form of blues.
Jens Lekman is such a hopeless romantic. Song after song he laments about a party, a girl, a summer, a love, but they are all so good. I think he has some production problems on a lot of his recordings – this type of singer needs great production, not bedroom tinkering. I mean part of Scott Walker’s charm was his great over the top production. Someone throw some money at Jens and get him to a good studio. This track off his latest compilation of EPs and 7” inches features some of his best work yet, and some actually solid production qualities. Black Cab I think is one of his best songs yet – great melody and lyrics, the line “well you’re so silent, Jens/well maybe I am, maybe I am.”
