I Feel Like Hank Williams Tonight – How About You?
So Chris Wall writes in the chorus of “I Feel Like Hank Williams Tonight”
I play classical music when it rains,
I play country when I am in pain,
Tonight I won’t play Beethoven,
no the mood’s just not right,
no, I feel like Hank Williams tonight.
So the question is, Do you play certain songs or artists at certain times to suit your mood? If so what song or what artist, for what mood? I know that if I’m stressed out I usually turn to a little jazz and maybe Gary Burton’s vibes or I play R. Carlos Nakai’s native American Flute! If I need a little pick me up “The Best of the New Grass Revival” may come on, “Can’t Stop Now” also gets me going! Or maybe a little bluegrass from Rhonda Vincent something like “Drivin’ Nails in My Coffin” A little laughter maybe John Prine’s “Please Don’t Bury Me” or Steve Goodman’s “Vegematic” always bring smiles to my face! Lately The Wide Album from Modern Man cracks me up! And then for some reason there’s Jerry Jeff’s album Navajo Rug for some unexplained reason the first three songs on this album “Navajo Rug”. “Just to Celebrate” and “Blue Mood” always kinds make my mood improve!
So what songs, what artists, what mood??
Here’s Chris Wall with “I Feel Like Hank Williams Tonight”
Oh, by the way I don’t feel like Hamk Williams Tonight!”
