    It just so happens that two of my most favorite tunes of all time have a place in the title...

    My absolute, hands down favorite tune from my absolute favorite album of all time. These two own me...



    Another really great track from a really, really great album. Emmylou's on this cut too.

    What, two in a row? Stockholm's cold! It might even take three just to get warm.

    Not sure if this is my favorite but it is the first that comes to mind (about Rio). And it is by one of my favorite musicians (Jorge Ben aka Jorge Benjor). . More enjoyable if you understand Portuguese.

    Streets Of Bakersfield

    "Hey you don't know me, but you don't like me
    You say you care less how I feel
    But how many of you that sit and judge me
    Have ever walked the streets of Bakersfield?"

    Man, this like a tenent of most major religions
