Asked to name my fave song recording …

A post at TOMB asked:  “One song that encompasses all of your emotional and aesthetic investment in music and audio production– Which song will it be? Why? ”

I answered:

Why “Thunder Road”? (Embarrassingly listed as “Born to Run” above because I was in a hurry and also thinking of it, and “Backstreets”. Embarassed )

Because, IMO, “The screen door slams, Mary’s dress waives …” is my favorite opening line, not just of any song, but of anything, also including books, poems, speeches, commercials, anything.

Because of the big lead vocal, the big BV’s, the big drums and piano and guitars and big concept, that rock and roll can save you.

I did get a guitar and learn how to make it talk, and Roy Orbison does sing for the lonely.

Vlayman w/ Grankspoine: “On the Water (Bread)”

On the Water (Bread)
c. ’13 Vlayman; derranged by Grankspoine

Standin’ on the corner, with my shit in my hand
Tryna figger how I’m gonna, make my way across this land

Don’t wanna throw my bread on the water
and end up dead

Ridin’ in a Cadillac, a phony-ass SUV
Thumbed my way to Chicago, passin’ thru St. Louie

Don’t wanna throw my bread on the water
and end up dead
Don’t wanna lose my bread on the water
and end up dead

Jane she’s got a pistol, she chased me on my way
With her patchouli and crystals, I knew I hadda call it a day

Don’t wanna throw my bread on the water
and end up dead
Don’t wanna throw my bread on the water
and end up dead

Where You Started From (Right)
c. ’13 Vlayman

I think you’re glad that you got my attention

I think you’re glad that I noticed your regression
I think you’re glad 2x

You’re right where you started from 3x
you’re just that fuckin’ dumb

I think you’re mad that you lost my attention
I think you’re mad, oh, yeah,

You’re right where you started from 3x

You’re right where you started from 3x
you’re just that fuckin’ dumb

I think you’re sad that you needed my attention

I hope you’re glad, mad and sad

You’re right where you started from 3x

The Hungry Drunx: “The Dream (You Are)”

The Dream (You Are)
c. ’13 The Hungry Drunx

In the daylight everything seems right
In your daylight everything seems nice and tight
nice and tight

In the day time, things ain’t what they seem
In your day time, you believe
You’re living the dream

In the night time, very little is dear
In your night time, very little is nice and clear
nice and clear

In the night time, things may be what they seem
In your night time, you believe
You’re daytime is the dream
In the night time, things may be what they seem
In your night time, you believe
You are the dream

Vlayman: “The Back-Up”

The Back-Up
c. ’13 Vlayman

When you took me on it was to be your back-up
You want me to keep you from having to back up
You wanted muscle for the tussles
I was yer back-up

Now you want me to be a ass-kisser
Ain’t it a pisser?
I’m just a ass-kicker

I took the position, and I admit I didn’t listen
When you told me I might get some credit racked up
This ain’t sedition only my long-held tradition
I only ever wanted to be a back-up

Now you want me to be a ass-kisser
Ain’t it a pisser?
I’m just a ass-kicker
Now you want me to be a ass-kisser
All I gotta say is, ain’t it a pisser?
I’m just a ass-kicker

I don’ carry no weapon but I still like the fight
I don’t mind you talkin’ in the back-room all nite
I’ll stand and read all the posters that they tacked up
I only ever wanted to be a back-up

Now you want me to be a ass-kisser
Ain’t it a pisser?
I’m just a ass-kicker
