Everybody's Desperate . . .

Which I guess is why, having read this this week, I found myself longing for this:



Words fail me to express how much I love this song, or the whole album, or Warren Zevon's voice, or the memory of lying on the floor in my bedroom listening to these songs at night in the 1970s, which feel now to me like an era of longing, and promise, and . . . well, other fatuous girly stuff that really doesn't seem consistent with listening to Warren Zevon songs, or with reality on the ground, either, but there it was.

i shall comment, if no one else wants to: kutx was playing "old school" on the on the way home, starting with the theme from "shaft," and i cranked it all the way up. different ballpark artistically, but performance quality and nostalgia is a powerful combination.

Wow, nothing says "Carpool 1973" like the theme from Shaft.

So my husband has played "Lawyers, guns and money" enough so that my 13 year old has it memorized. Not sure if it is a great thing, so we're keeping up with other more enlightening music. But we really appreciate the writing and musical ability of warren zevon. Thanks so much for this, Sally!

LOVE Warren Zevon. My husband and I went to a Jackson Browne concert, bringing two of our kids. I mentioned to my husband beforehand: "I wish it was Warren Zevon we were going to see, but I'll never have that chance." Someone from the audience requested Mohammed's Radio and Jackson Browne, an old friend of WZ's, actually gave the song a decent try. That was about as close as it could come to my wish being granted.

Jackson Browne! The other 70s lie-on-the-floor-at-night-with-the-radio love of my life!
