"Like oatmeal the words stick together." Classic JMT words! The picture those words paint is very clear AND YET the words flow from the tongue so easily!

One night after three month of no rain, as we were driving home from singing at Gringos in Grapevine a splash of water hit the windshield. I said to myself, "Sweet Rain." I went home and wrote the song. It's on the soundtrack of a movie called…read more

Damn... Barb had such a fine voice! It helped to have good JMT songs to sing... but I think she helped the songs too... like on this song and like on I'D BE GLAD TO LET YOU LOVE ME which is #3 on this album... but... it will be forever and forever in my memory as one of my most favorite songs of all time... on one of my most favorite albums of all time... FITW And I am NOT saying FITW is simply one of my favorite JMT albums! No, I'm saying that FEATHERS IN THE WIND is one of the best albums ever... by anyone!

Jimmy, this song reminds me, what great lyrics you can slip into your songs/albums! AND I had forgotten how much I like this song/album. Thanks for reminding me about it. JQ

Yesterday afternoon, I received my copy of... The Stone Raft, the English translation of a novel by Portuguese writer José Saramago, who won the Nobel Peace Prize in Literature in 1998. A Spanish-language film based on the book, La Balsa de Piedra, was released in 2002 by George Sluizer; see JMT intro above. This is a great JMT song... the lyrics of this song, represent well, the true genius JMT has with words! What absolutely great lyrics!

Jimmy, I like this one. You mentioned the other day, that you might consider adding some cello to one of your new songs... ??? This version is only 2:09... seems to me... there might be plenty of room for a few bars of cello instrumental to float around between the words! But you know me... I have often mentioned to you, how good some of your instrumentals really are... and I have often thought that you, yourself, under appreciate yourself... when it comes to your own instrumentals. Good song... JohnQ

The lyrics are so descriptive and visual, such as the lipstick from NYC. Did you read about a suicide or make up the song from scratch? Jeff P
