    This song is over 25 years old that had in my collection but never noticed I had. It can be perceived and written as a song about lost love, lost relationships or what drove the writing of the song. Two close friends of vocalist Phillip A. one committed suicide and his other friend also ended his life following the other. The band helped in the writing of the song, not in a way of speaking suicidal death but more to the end of a relationship in love or the end of a friendship. The song hit me over the summer as it spoke to me as I had a long lost love relationship.....the words came through perfectly about me. 

    Here's a cover of the song then I'll try to post the that's real....PANTERA......Cemetary Gates

    Reverend, Reverend is this some conspiracy?
    Crucified for no sins
    An image beneath me
    Whats within our plans for life
    It all seems so unreal
    I'm a man couldn't have feel this world
    Left in my misery

    The Reverend he turned to me
    Without a tear in his eyes
    It's nothing new for him to see
    I didn't ask him why
    I will remember
    The love our souls had
    Sworn to make
    Now I watch the falling rain
    All my mind can see
    Now is your (face)

    Well I guess
    You took my youth
    I gave it all away
    Like the birth of a
    New-found joy
    This love would end in rage
    And when she died
    I couldn't cry
    The pride within my soul
    You left me incomplete
    Overload as the memories now unfold.

    Believe the word
    I will unlock my door
    And pass the
    Cemetery gates

    Sometimes when I'm alone
    I wonder aloud
    If you're watching over me
    Some place far abound
    I must reverse my life
    I can't live in the past
    Then set my soul free
    Belongs to me at last

    Through all those
    Complex years
    I thought I was alone
    I didn't care to look around
    And make this world my own
    And when she died
    I should've cried and spared myself some pain
    Left me incomplete
    All alone as the memories still remain

    The way we were
    The chance to save my soul
    And my concern is now in vain
    Believe the word
    I will unlock my door
    And pass the cemetery gates

    The way we were
    The chance to save my soul
    And my concern is now in vain
    Believe the word
    I will unlock my door
    And pass the cemetery gates

    So a crazy thing happened about 14 years ago.  My favorite local small town bar that I frequent has some really good bands during the summer.  One of the bartenders here used to work in a Chicago bar and booked bands there.  Now he works here in our small lakeside town, he was able to get some pretty good, better than average talent to come up from Chicago to our local bar here.
    So back in the mid-nineties there was a song I heard on MTV just twice called Lack of Water by The Why Store.  I liked it but I only heard it twice and then totally forgot about it. Fast forward to 2003, there's a band on the events calendar called Chris Shaffer, my buddy who books the bands said the week before hey, don't miss Chris Shaffer, you like this one.  And I did not know that Chris Shaffer was the lead singer/songwriter of the Why Store at the time. So the band starts up and plays a really good first set.  I didn't know any of the songs I just liked them all though.  Weird funky and psychedelic, and some rockers. At the start of the second set the singer Chris Shaffer says here's my one song that was on the charts for a while Lack of Water.  And then all of a sudden it dawned on me this must be the guy from the Why Store which I'd only heard on MTV twice and forgot about.  I went and asked my buddy who books the bands and he said yep that's Chris from The Why Store.
    Just an incredible 3 hours set and then my buddy invited me to the after bar.  Chris likes tequila. So had some tequila & smoked part of a J with these guys it was just a pretty damn fun night.  He doesn't tour much at all anymore everytime I look at the schedule that's all in and around Indianapolis. Went and saw them down at the House of Blues in Chicago about 2005, and that's it.
    Give this video a 45 minute trial see if you dig it.  Cheers! ;)

    It seems like I have been sitting in the lounge car playing the Jukebox all by myself.
    It is what it is.

    &
    Mule Skinner Blues haha hehehehe

    Nice, RYME.

    This makes me sad and uplifted at the same time.  Lovely and talented and lost young lady.  Whatta fucking voice!

    This is the lounge car at its best. I am dumbfounded because the only song I've ever heard of hers was the one that's played on the radio once in awhile about rehab.  And I don't like that song because I wish that she would've gotten sufficient help and lived.  I wish that people like her would know somehow that there are people like us out here, who do care, and would loved to have helped in anyway possible if only we could have.  But that's all I knew of her. But dammit, she is really good.  I'll have to look into her material now and maybe get some of it.
    Thanks for that hedonist....
    I feel like this is a good place for the Obscure music & old favorites. Stuff that most of us haven't heard but should hear. I posted this one earlier but I don't know if I got overlooked because it's above the fold. This is a friend of mine named Mike Himebaugh, and to continue The Melancholy mood that you've got going here I will post this.  It's very slow not catchy.  This guy just has a higher octave than most of what I listen to. He sings like a bird.  But if you listen to Easy River a few times it will begin to pull at your heart strings a bit.
    It's about starting life having drawn the short straw before you even know your alive.  Learning how to go with the flow and persevere. Like most good music, it takes a few listens before it starts to grow on you.
    Easy River

    & I can't help myself.  Here is one more that will lighten the mood. Called
    Running Home.  There is just to much shit going on in the world.  Music is still the most healing art form as Jeff Ament pointed out.  Alright...

    And here's a song called
    Movie Star
    This is a Great Jam band from Chicago called 
    Mr Blotto

    This song is extremely groovy & haunting at the same time.  This song requires headphones (so you can better hear the exquisite drums and bass and instruments), & 2 drinks & a smoke, because it's a 12 minute jam.  The song came out on the Mr Blotto album Cabbages & Kings in 2001.  But of course live it's much better 
    It goes like this.
    sad Mardi Gras
    we have made confetti of the law
    you see it all 
    laissez fair is written on your wall
    take a while with me, 
    and you will see
    I'm living like a movie star
    mad Carnival 
    the writing on the wall 
    is pure Brazilian
    you see it all 
    washing off your feet
    with sweat of millions 
    stopped to catch your breath, 
    the night has died the death
    just like a movie star
    (Halftime)
    hey movie star
    how the devil do you keep from waking?
    I know you are 
    Waltzing through a life
    you're only faking, 
    watch me turn my back 
    and fade into
     the black 
    just like a movie star

    And what ever happened to this girl?
    Rockferry is a spectacular album and to my knowledge she hasn't put out much of anything since.
    But I saw her on Austin City Limits a few years ago, and holy moly, she's freaky good...
    Duffy-Rockferry.  She's pretty amazing!

    I did some reading and found out that her first album Rockferry 2008 was wildly successful, her second album Endless 2010, tanked, So she's been on Hiatus ever since.  I think she should try again.

    Here's another one of my favorites.
    Seen her 3 times.  I wish she would put out some new material.  She is fantastic.

    Alright, I'm done being pissed off about guns and anthems. Time for the fine voices of these two to ease me through the night. Excited to be seeing them again in January.


    It's a hopeless situation...

    Love the musical spectrum of my fellow riders.  Got some acoustic Garbage under our belt, now winding down to one of our favorites.

    (another on my bucket list)

    How about this new song from Good Old Jack Johnson.
