    This is the best version of Tennyson I know of.

    Seriously?! I’d sing too, if I had a voice like that!

    Man, and if we ever get to meet, I’d love to play uke with you. I think we could have some fun jamming out to tunes like that.

    Peace,

    Schubert was no slouch in setting songs about Death too. Hard to know where to begin, but this is as good a place as any.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sIIS-UgixGE

    A live version of Jason Isbell's "Elephant" with his wife Amanda Shires on fiddle. John Prine has given both of them his stamp of approval. I can rarely get through the whole song without misting up.

    Great thread.

    I told y'all once before about the Hollywood urinatin' match at that one party, where John Huston declared that there was only two plots to a movie: 'A man rides into town, or a man rides out of town'.

    Bullspit, says Peckinpah.

    There's only ONE plot to a movie!
