It’s time to share, people.
I’m going to start posting links to some of my all-time favorite songs. And, believe it or not, some of them are from artists whose first names aren’t “John”.
The Random Thoughts Random Collection starts with one of the essential Harry Chapin songs, “Taxi”.
As a bonus (since this IS the first post in the series), here’s an extra Harry Chapin song – one of my all-time favorites – “30,000 Pounds of Bananas”. The reason it’s not the primary selection is…well, this isn’t my favorite recording. Harry’s best performance of “…Bananas” was on the “Greatest Stories (Live)” album – it runs 11 minutes and 28 seconds, and features some great adlibs with his brothers and the band. It’s a fantastic story song.
Eventually I’d like to figure out how to do this in the sidebar. Eventually.
