    That would certainly be appropriate, wouldn't it?

    Not on topic.....but I was in a "rock" club back in the early eighties, listening to a "rock" band playing to a "rock" audience, when midway through the evening Tiny Tim happened to come in, and the band actually invited him up on stage. He got up with his ukulele, and proceeded to DESTROY the place. I cannot adequately describe it, but he was SO GOOD that everybody screamed and cheered at his performance. Like everyone else there, all I was familiar with was Tiptoe Through the Tulips.....but man!....that guy could sing! He was WAY more than just the novelty that everyone knew from his TV appearances!

    I nominate “Heard it through the Grapevine”. The CCR version.

    Not sure that I agree that mild criticism mixed with high praise is more political than absolute puffery, but we can’t/shan’t go much farther than that.

    Here are a couple that you have to be a fossilized hard boiled egg to dislike.



    “You know what Otis?”

    “What?”

    “You’re country”

    “That’s alright”

    “You’re straight from the Georgia woods”

    “THAT’S GOOD!”



    Listen to those descending saxophones. It’s perfect.

    I’m not sure if I understand this post. I didn’t praise anyone.

    There are at least two versions of the Woody Guthrie song. The clean version that was sang in elementary schools, and the more political version that is not as well known.

    This is the internet, no we all can't agree.

    Taking a word from your song:

    Can we all agree "water is wet" might have a fighting chance.

    This Land is Your Land is mild criticism mixed with high praise, America The Beautiful is absolute puffery.

    "Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald" -- you can substitute virtually any other song's lyrics to the music and it fits (MHO of course)!!
    Maybe we at least agree on that??
