A song for the Weekend: Cocaine Blues

I have decided to be economical this weekend, or lazy, it depends on your point of view really. But anyway I have decided to merge my song for the weekend post with my song challenge post. So its day 08, which means its time to share a song that I know all the words to. I was going to post this yesterday with Bob Dylan’s The Hurricane but I could not find a good version on youtube. So today I have decided to make my song for the weekend, one that I know all the words. Which brings me in to Johnny Cash.

Cocaine Blues is a great tune originally released as ‘Little Sadie’ and made famous by Johnny Cash. The song has been tweaked many timed and released by many artists including Bob Dylan, but none of these versions comes close to Johnny Cash’s iconic Folsom Prison live concert version. Which coincidentally enough is embedded below. So nothing else to do but click the play button, wait for the video to stream depending on your broadband speed, and enjoy 🙂

Day 02 – Your least favourite song

Hmm.. I suppose this is where I post a lot of annoying crap by One Direction and Justin Bieber. Well I’m not going to do that. Yes I am aware that the title is ‘Your Least Favourite Song’ and I publicly welcome anyone  reading to come to my house and shoot me the day that I find myself succumbing to the virus’s mentioned above. (By virus I am of course referring to One Direction and Bieber. And the whole thing about shooting me is not to be taken literally, It is in fact a figure of speech)

I believe that its only fair to select my least favourite song on the basis that I have listened to it fully on more than one occasion ( which immediately eliminates all above mentioned musical geniuses, I mean musical travesties of course)  And so getting back to my least favourite song. I believe that the best place to start would be with my least favourite singer. Ed Sheeran. And my least favourite song by him? Well there are so many to choose from, sorry Ed, but the stand out tune in my head has to be ‘ You need me, I don’t need you’. And so for those of you who aren’t nodding your head in silent agreement, I shall explain why. Well first and foremost, Ed Sheeran , in my mind is arrogance personified. That may be a bit harsh, I don’t know that lad after all. But arrogance just seems to be the general vibe I get off him.  My final argument hinges entirely on the song below. Just click play and you will see, or rather hear, why exactly I do not like this song. It’s just terrible.

And now with all my ranting I’ve gone over time and I am now officially on Day 03. Awell, I won’t tell anyone if you won’t. Oh and for any Ed Sheeran fans reading this:

Sorry
