Perfect Songs, Day 4


Day four came dangerously close to being the Allman Brothers Band’s “Ramblin’ Man.” That song is one of the longest-lived residents of Charlie’s Top Ten of All Time. But it’s not as if I go around playing southern boogie rock for a career. Canadian folk songs, now, that’s a different story. “If You Could Read My Mind” is one of the few favorites that’s even longer-lived than “Ramblin’ Man” as I actually remember IYCRMM from the year it was released in the States (1970-71). It’s still great, 44 years later.

By the way, the image in the thumbnail is just a random shot from the video, which was compiled by another fan to give pictures to the soundtrack. I don’t *think* it’s the original Mrs. Lightfoot, at any rate.

About songdogmi

I'm a longhaired almost-hippie stuck in the inner suburbs of a major rust-belt metropolis who's thoughtful, creative, and kind of geeky. In exchange for a paycheck I run around in a cubicle maze most days. When I escape, I play music, hang out in coffee houses, dink around on the computer, take naps, and think I should be off in the woods somewhere. Every once in a while I get in my car and drive far, far away, though I've always come back so far.
