2 Boots

Dominique's boots give me the opportunity to talk a bit about music this morning. It's Dwight time again. Dwight Yoakam's first new CD in seven years is out. Called "3 Pears", the music is a blend of rockabilly with a tint of almost British rock, with that classic Dwight twang. I'm not a big country music fan, but I think I know good music when I hear it, and this one's a keeper. Hey, even Marchin might give it a play, maybe. On a trip to NJ. about 10 years ago, you won't believe what I suffered through in the CD player, but do you think he'd allow me to put a few of Yoakum's greatest hits on? No sirree, bub! AND it was my car! Oh well, I'm past that. Tell ya the truth. His foot be tappin', if he ever gave that album a chance. Interesting sidelight to the title, in Living in the Material World, the George Harrison movie by Martin Scorsese, there's this piece about John Lennon trying on 3 pairs of glasses, and there is where the album's title and first released video come from. I'm buying it today! Now, don't go and ask me why the title's "3 Pears" and not 3 Pairs. I can't help you solve all of life's riddles, can I?

  2. I guess I describe myself as not a country music fan but country music now is more like pop music for grownups. I like Dwight. I'll have to check out his new cd.

  6. These boots were made for walking! Walkin' all over you! Well, that's what Nancy (Sinatra) said! And although I've written many country songs, some of the new material I'd like to stomp on! Maybe I should listen to this CD? Oui?

    1. Well, since you left the cd on my desk, I now have Dwight loaded onto my iTunes account. I do believe that in addition to his new love of yogurt, fennel, kale, and quinoa (to name just a few things!), Marchin can also develop (perhaps?) a new love of country music. Now I'm thinking I need a new pair of boots . . .
