One of the prettiest theme songs ever, and one of my favorites.
Then the Missus ruined it for me forever by singing this:
Wagons here, wagons there,
There are wagons everywhere;
Some are short, some are long,
And they’re even in this song;
On a ship, on a plane,
You can find them on a train;
This is what we call the Theme to Wagon Train.
Very cool paper sculpture books [via].
How ’bout some country blues? Eric Bibb does it right.
Eric Bibb (vocals, acoustic guitars, baritone guitar, resonator guitar, contra bass guitar, cigar box diddly bow, 6-string banjo & footstomp), Grant Dermody (harmonica), Dirk Powell (fretless banjo, fiddle, mandolin, accordion, upright bass, banjo & harmony vocal), Cedric Watson (fiddles & backing vocals), Danny DeVillier (drums & tambourine), Christine Balfa (cajun triangle).
Aside from the video bloopers and bad cuts, I’d have never guessed so many great ones played on that track.
Have a great weekend, folks, and remember that Memorial Day is not about hot dogs and beer.
