    Does "The Weight" by the Band count as modern?

    Butane lighters were pretty common in the 1950's. This was released in '68.

    Not sure what the butane was used to light during this time.

    Not really I guess. When it comes to the band, I go for ''It makes no difference''.

    If Gram Parsons do, yes!

    The (modern) is more about type or style of music than when it was made. Not like "The Ballad of Brave Sir Robbin"-stuff...

    Absolutely not, but if we're going way back, here's one I like to sing.



    But hell I love singing any song by The Band.

    Hailstones beatin' on the roof
    The bourbon is a hundred proof
    It's you and me and the telephone
    Our destiny is quite well known
    We don't need to sit and brag
    But all you wanna do is rag mama rag mama rag

    I hope those are the words...
