Father's Day: Songs About Dad

This is the weekend where we examine the impact great fathers have made upon history.  From the Bible, where the landscape is littered with the actions of fathers.  Who could forget the long walk Abraham and his son took in Genesis?  Adam, the first father, raised a fine bunch of stand-up children.  And what about the Big Father himself -- Jesus' daddy -- who sent him on an all-important mission?Charlie Lawson of Stokes County, North Carolina, probably never got his fair share of Father's Day…See More

Top Christmas Songs You Won't Hear At The Mall

Somewhere out there, evil elves cackle with glee every  time the Muzak supervisor at the mall pops in the Christmas CD, the same Christmas CD that every other mall uses, every other supermarket, every other elevator, every other... because they know they are slowly driving folks mad.

I love John Lennon, but by mid-December, I would rather declare war than listen to "Happy Xmas, War Is Over" one more time.  It's worlds better than his counterpart's "Wonderful Christmastime," but…

Sins of the Perfectly Average -- I Hate New York (aka Top Ten Songs about Dallas)

Ever run into a person from New York City? Certainly you haven't run into anyone from New York City, but rather someone who, after leaving their farming village or mid-level, mundane existence in some random suburb across the United States who read a romance novel or pseudo-intellectual novel or watched a cinema film of questionable value and decided hey, New York City is the place to be!Because Sinatra sang about it (dude, he sang about everywhere), then it must be…

Symphony For The Devil: Top Ten Songs About Satan

In order to prevent taking sides and to represent a "fair and balanced" point of view, it is only fair that we follow up any Top Ten Lists representing one group with a Top Ten List representing the other.  And, let's be honest, shouldn't this be a TopTwenty list?  While I whittle down the musical canon celebrating Lucifer, so many remain on the cutting room floor.

But these are…

The T-Model Ford article was an excellent depiction of the kind of experience I have had in the Delta.  Each time I have gone down there (3 total) I learn something new and always feel the history of the Delta and have a cool new experience like Reds!!  Great Stuff Reverend!!
