Re: Ira Hayes Back In The News

Hi,

Discovered yesterday that Ira Hayes died at age 32. This brave man's life ended tragically at a young age.

"If a Clown"

Hi, Some of you are familiar with Stephen Dunn's poem "If a Clown." The poem can be found here: http://www.cortlandreview.com/features/13/spring/dunn.php. The poem, context, and life maybe imitating art come to mind with: http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/offbeat/clown-wandering-city-in-the-middle-of-th...

Re: Like A Psalm

Hi holydove and Hartmut, Thank you for your replies. Will visit the sites that Hartmut linked to as time allows. Looking forward to doing so, though may not be able to comment back about them. Hi everyone, There is an interesting biographical parallel in the lives of the biblical character King Davi...

Re: Like A Psalm

Hi, Just a musing here. Were archaeologists to discover the musical score of the Psalms: Would the music be dated or timeless? What would be the extent of interest in hearing the Psalms in their original song based medium for most people? Unless the music proved to be really compelling, I don't thin...

Re: L.C. Song Hunt

Hi Bev, Interesting story about the guitar stomping. Hadn't heard it. There is a classic country music precedent for this kind of thing. Ira Louvin of the Louvin Brothers would, on occasion, smash his mandolin during a performance. It is said that he did this out of frustration with the instrument g...

Re: L.C. Song Hunt

Thanks Hartmut, I don't have a question ready to post right now so if anyone wants to do that please go ahead. If you ask your male friends who like LC for a favourite song I reckon you'll find FBR is among them - I know my male friends like it :) .....and my book is taking shape word wise but I'm ...

Re: L.C. Song Hunt

Hi Hartmut, Nice Shakespeare snippets. As some lyrics in L.C. songs reflect the influence of The Bard of Avon, perhaps someone might like to post a question related to this at some point. (It's getting increasingly difficult for me to attend to this thread. Newbies are invited; the L.C. Song Hunt ne...

Like A Psalm

Hi, "If It Be Your Will," famously said to be like a prayer, is equally, or more so, akin to a Psalm. The imagery, the resignation, humilty, are each a Psalm-like element, as is, of course, that the words have dual applicability: song and recitation. Additionally, there's another similarity, as the ...

Re: L.C. Song Hunt

Hi Roman, Is it "Samson In New Orleans" with New Orleans? This reply is equal parts conjecture and answer. There is a bridge in "Samson In New Orleans," as in "The Golden Gate," so, if this is one of the "both" songs in your hint, the bridge element satisfies the "something in common in the lyrics."...

Hi Roman,

Is one of them "The Golden Gate"? There, the city is San Francisco.

Re: L.C. Song Hunt

Hi Hartmut,

You brought forth words from "One Of Us Cannot Be Wrong" and "I Left A Womoan Waiting." Those
from "One Of Us Cannot Be Wrong" fit perfectly. The yet to be identified canine based lyric is still
hiding in the doghouse, though it'll soon be outside the door.
