A happy song about being left by your no-good spouse. There's a word for the attitude in this song but I can't think of it right now ... this is now a tidied up version 18/3/09

An old time fiddle tune without the fiddle, or the tune, really, so the vocal has to carry it, and it has that lovely raw propulsion. Written and recorded in an hour.

Sassy Nation version! Sister Savage and Mr Sandbags collaborated on the original of this wonderful heartbreaker of a song. I've been playing it on the guitar the last few days and it always seemed to come out with a grittier tone, so i asked…

This was an RPM track back in the day, and I've been playing it various ways to find a setting for it within the band repertoire. This doesn't sound much like our band would do it but it came out nicely, so i thought i'd share it.

Final version Day 28 Anyone else still writing songs? this is the result of trying to listen to too many mixes in one day. Sometimes it's just easier to record something else.

wow....so beautiful! Great lyrics. Seriously fantastic. I'm an old Dylan fan and this hits the spot.

I'm not sure if this is rockabilly or late 40s jump R'n'B. Dance music though. I had fun with the lyrics and the backing vocals. This is now a tidied up version 18/3/09

Wonderful song - awesome performance.

There's a whole mythology woven into this song, and hence into the album, and the weave is fine and warm.

Hey, where did the video go? Giving this album a whirl again - still one of my faves.

Written today. recorded on an iMac with the internal mic and no headphones (!) so it's probably going to be muddy as hell, but that feels about right for now. LYRIC: Fill up the glass, Bartender Ply your art Quench the fire in here, now…

@Crossroads @jackmerlot: Hello? I think I'm in the right place, but there is nobody around right now? @raven: Caw! Never-more. @jackmerlot: Well a fat lot of good you are. Can you say anything else, or are you one of those greasy, diseased birds with no conscience? @raven: Kra-Kaw! Never-more...never-mind...he's here! @mingus: And I suppose you're wondering what you'd do, for a lifetime subscription to Ernie Ball's Bass Strings of the Month club, & a signed copy of the Black Saint & the Sinner Lady? @jackmerlot: Hey, wait a minute. A guy that kinda looked like you gave me this card. *pulls out business card, printed on heavy bond stock with slightly raised monogram letterpress printed on it* @mingus: Ah, uh, yeah. I mean, Ah Um. @raven: Kraaaakkow! RED-RUM! @jackmerlot: Hey, thanks a lot for meeting me, but you're not actually the guy I meant to meet here. @woodyguthrie: May I help you? He's standing in a State Fair Kissing Booth about 20 yards from @crossroads. Do you wish to trade business cards with Woody Guthrie? ( y/n )

Aww, man. My cousin's youngest just turned one; his name is Arlo. I never axed my cousin if they named him after Arlo Guthrie, but I guess in the back of my mind I always assumed they probably considered that when they named him. "This Machine Kills... Fascists." written in Sharpie marker on Woody Guthrie's acoustic guitar.

Final version Every so often when i'm thinking of something else a western song pops up as if there is a soundtrack to a movie running in the back of my head. I might have to gather em all up into a playlist some day. track nine, or at least…

Love the minor / finished triad movements

I'm finally happy with this track - v1 was too much of a nothing song and it's been bugging me all the way to the last night of the challenge. 1 more to mix

Surprising how one song can be played in many different ways and still retain it's individuality.
