. . . because I couldn't find a decent cilice in my size.
Dig:Good Choice! Loved this song from the first time I heard it...haunting is how I would describe it. If you like this one, you may want to check out the following:1.) Joni Mitchell - "Songs to Ageing Children Come" - Etherial harmonies and interesting structure2.) Janis Ian - "Hymn" Methodically sad with some truly heart-wrenching vocal accenting in the backgrounds by a Gospel singer with great pipes3.) Joni Mitchell (again) - "Song to a Seagull" Hauntingly simple, poetically written with vocal accents that show the AMAZING range that Mitchell has.I got a million more suggestions - interested?
I am always open to suggestions. But just be warned - "Obscure Music Friday" started as a joke to my habit of finding these little-known songs and thinking their good.Janis Ian? Yeee Gawd, I could never stand that song, "17." I will find this one and give her another chance.
Dig:Give 'er a shot. I am by NO means a Janis Ian fan. In fact, this is only one of 2 songs that I like of hers....the rest is pretty much unlistenable for me. I think the idea of bringing little or unkonwn songs out in the open is actually a really fun exercise. It's a great way to find songs that may have meaning or are just good listens even from people or bands that one doesn't like.
I too am a Jane Siberry fan. My favorite is the song "Hockey", which is about "playing hockey on the frozen river". You can totally picture the scene and the music just brings it alive.Actually most of her stuff I don't like, but she's got a few gems, and she does have a beautiful voice.
