    This Tom T. Hall song is a real melancholy favorite of mine. Traveling musicians can really relate to this song, and I know I can, cause when you move away from home, and are on the road, you really lose touch with what's going on in the lives of your family back home, and they have no idea what you're really doing. You feel weird, and guilty, when you go back for a short visit.

    Season 364. Submission 2. "I Wanna Be Free" (Written by Tommy Boyce and Bobby Hart for the Monkees first album (1966) and released by the Monkees as a single in 1967.)

    When I was young, i adored this song. The fact that Davy Jones was the vocalist was largely responsible. Yet also, that was a time when the idea of being "free to be you and me" was championed by the young. The idea of loving being free and loving the companionship of another walked hand in hand in the rosy glow of those sunsets. All those years ago. The voice in this song? It carries through time and I hear it as the voice of someone who very, very easily walked barefoot or wore moccasins instead of shoes. The voice of someone who so easily loved and kept walking. The voice of someone else. I hope that you find it will fit your theme.

    Thank you again, Ylle, for this lovely week of music.

    Never judge a man (WeeOriginal)
    A song based on a Billy Connolly joke, and done in a Russian style.

    Another nightmare in the video department. Crashing, not synchronising, not recording.
    Swapped it all to a different PC and seemingly sort of cured.

    I am a fan of many artists but my adoration for Jim Croce goes well beyond that to past the point of normality. He is a fantastic songwriter, performer, and story teller. I love the dude. This is one of his stories about lovers that drifted apart.

    The perils of playing a pretty basic song by musicians who kick it up with their jaw-dropping chops. Stick to the basics and hope it comes out OK. This is by the great James Nash of the Waybacks.

    I loved this song by The Cars when I was 14, and I love it just as much now at 54. I did it awhile back, but happy to do it again, took me awhile to figure out how to approach it the first time I learned it, but now that I have, it super fun to play and sing.
