TGIF… Thank God it’s Friday! This week has kicked me in the butt. Life in the patch is good to me today, things seem to be gettin’ a little busy out here again.
Had just a few minutes of downtime and I got to thinkin’. I like songs that most people think are strange. My wife has told me more than once.. “Your music is strange,” she says , “well some of it is good but it’s strange.”
If there is a song you think is strange.. let me know, I will probably like it. I like funny songs, I like songs that no one else has ever heard. I like songs that tell a story. Wait I like songs.
My preferred genre is Texas country or Red Dirt, but for those of you who know me or those that follow my blogs you know that I will listen to just about anything that tickles my ear buds.
Rich O’Toole tweeted today.. “Be creative and different. Hearing 100 bands that sound the same does zero for Texas Music.”
I like songs that are different.. how many more songs are going to be written about toes in the water, beer drinkin’ on the tailgate of a pickup truck, that girl that done left a long time ago? Nah put some different lyrics in there bro.. Rich O’Toole is right. Dare to be different.
I can almost bet that no other song writer in Texas, the USA, or the Planet Earth has ever written a song about Marijuana and Jalepenos. Rich O’Toole did it.. check it out, I did!
O’Toole has a large discography. His songs range from road tripping across the west to sky scrapers and big cities. He has music you can sing along with. Music you can dance too. And for guys like me who need different, un normal, non cliché, he has Marijuana and Jalepenos.
I’d like to think he wrote the song just for me.. But I know that isn’t true, I am pretty sure he wrote it just for you. I mean seriously even though I haven’t touched the stuff in over 12 years to be honest , if they ever did legalize the green bud in Texas, I would most likely try some on my tacos too.
