Soul Music

People love all kinds of music, they tell me. They love it all except for Country and Rap.

Rap and County music are the only true forms of American music left. They are the only two remaining that have anything to say that speaks to the soul. They both hit you squarely in the gut. They have messages. They have weight. The elicit an emotional response. They ain't cute.

Tonight I am listening to DMX and Patsy Cline, and I love this fucking country!

  • Who's Sorry Now?
  • For My Dogs
  • Stand By Your Man
  • Amazing Grace
  • Sincerity
  • We Right Here
  • The Wayward Wind
  • Slippin
  • I Fall To Pieces
  • It's All Good
  • Crazy
  • One More Road To Cross
  • Who We Be
  • Blue Moon of Kentucky
  • War
  • Y'all Gonna Make Me Lose My Mind
  • Tennessee Waltz
  • San Antonio Rose
  • You Belong To Me
  • How's It Goin' Down?

Do it. Force yourself. Listen. Hear it. Feel it. Take a deep breath of this before you go traipsing off to Bali or rock climbing or challenging maitres D in Manhattan. Grit your teeth, strip to your underwear and savor an alcoholic beverage to this true American music. You'll thank me.
