1. The top three most complete songs-with-lyrics, unavailable in listenable form, that accompanied our time away, had no discernible relationship to our "vacation spot," a term used entre guillemets because of the highest irony and because you cannot -- glad am i -- get a visual of my tired pseudo-academic visual of the hand meme. No discernible relationship to my mind, but perhaps to yours, more keen with insight?
Acadian Driftwood -- The Band* $
Angel From Montgomery -- John Prine* (w/Bonnie Raitt)
Delta -- CSN*
Lookin' Out My Back Door -- CCR*
I'll Rise -- Ben Harper*
Mr. Tambourine Man -- Bob Dylan*
Pancho and Lefty -- Townes Van Zandt*
I Am Not Waiting Anymore -- The Blind Boys of Alabama*
*With weird abruptions, eruptions, abortions, elisions, allusions, transliterations, and inexplicable circumlocutions; without the intended intrumentation, although we thought to achieve the playing of the fairly simple few in "I Am Not Waiting Anymore"; We also confused a cardiac alarm with a car alarm -- on an armored vehicle equipped with automatic weaponry.
$In a febrile reworking of two lyrics --
oh, i quit.
