What Are You Listening To?

1,025 posts in this topic

I am a huge Arlo fan, and also his father Woody. Arlo is a sadly underrated musician, who can make a guitar, harmonica or piano really convey a lot without getting too fancy.

 

Here is a Woody Guthrie song performed by Arlo from 1972. It's one of the most poignant versions I've heard, thanks to a beautifully simple arrangement. Arlo recorded it five years after his dad died.

 

Hobo's Lullaby

 

 

Here's another favorite Woody song performed by Arlo:

 

Ramblin' Round

My favorite Woody Guthrie song:

 

Pretty Boy Floyd

 

 

*Some will rob you with a six gun, some with a fountain pen.*

I always thought this was about the cleverest song ever written, Frank.

 

Be the first one on your block

To have your boy come home in a box

Thanks very much for that great YouTube link - two of my top favorites from radio & movies - together!

 

Coincidence!

I was just chipping away at the seemingly never-ending project of organizing my movie stills and had just handled that same one you posted of Jean Arthur! BUT - I got it out again and compared it to yours and was interested to see that it is very slightly different. In mine Jean's mouth is closed and her left hand is moved just a little so her fingers are not pointing down. Otherwise, exactly the same! Must have been shot two seconds apart.

 

And I'm sure you know, but for anyone who doesn't, it's a posed shot on a set from the 1943 Columbia movie THE MORE THE MERRIER. In the movie there is actually no such scene. In the scene on the roof Jean is lying on a blanket next to the record player, then gets up and climbs over the wall but doesn't sit on the wall with the record player like she is in this posed still.

I love big band music, such as: The Varsity Drag (from Good News), Hoedown (Babes on Broadway), and songs from Ginegr Rogers Fred Astaire movies, and songs from Judy Garland movies.

 

I'm not into the songs of today.

I don't know Sippie! Thanks for posting her - what a gorgeous woman she was, with such a deep down gorgeous voice. I'm going to listen to all the ones I can find on youtube tomorrow.

Wow. I must be really out of it music wise. I've been listening to the soundtrack for " Bad & the Beautiful " and " Love Me or Leave Me " and " A Streetcar Named Desire ".
