As long as Willie is still with us, I can not pass up this beauty.


https://www.google.com/#q=luckenbach+texas+song


"Luckenbach, Texas (Back To The Basics Of Love)"


The only two things in life
That make it worth livin'
Is guitars to tune good
And firm feelin' women

I don't need my name in the marquis lights
I got my song and I got you with me tonight
Maybe it's time we got back to the basics of love

Let's go to Luckenbach, Texas
With Waylon and Willie and the boys
This successful life we're livin'
Got us feuding like the Hatfields and McCoys

Between Hank Williams pain songs
And Newbury's train songs
And blue eyes cryin' in the rain
Out in Luckenbach, Texas
Ain't nobody feelin' no pain

So baby let's sell your diamond ring
Buy some boots and faded jeans and go away
This coat and tie is choking me
In your high society you cry all day

We've been so busy
Keepin' up with the Jones
Four car garage and we're still building on
Maybe it's time we got
Back to the basics of love

Let's go to Luckenbach, Texas
With Waylon and Willie and the boys
This successful life we're livin'
Got us feuding like the Hatfields and McCoys

Between Hank Williams pain songs
And Newbury's train songs
And blue eyes cryin' in the rain
Out in Luckenbach, Texas
Ain't nobody feelin' no pain

Let's go to Luckenbach, Texas
With Willie and Waylon and the boys
This successful life we're livin'
Got us feuding like the Hatfields and McCoys

Between Hank Williams pain songs
And Jerry Jeff's train songs
And blue eyes cryin' in the rain
Out in Luckenbach, Texas
There ain't nobody feelin' no pain

Not my theme song, but a "friend" told me that's the ringtone he has set for me when I call him.

Can't even find the original lyrics to my favorite song, never mind the youtube version....
So, here:

Jada
Jada... Jada,
Jada Jada jing jing jing
Jada... Jada,
Jada Jada jing jing jing.

It's a funny little melody,
It's so soothing and appealing to me...
It goes..
Jada, Jada,
Jada Jada jing jing jing.



oops... just found it.

My ER theme song is "Watching The Wheels" by John Lennon. " No longer riding on the merry-go-round. I just had to let it go"

That's Allison Krauss before she got glamorized. Still sings like an angel.

Nice to see the young Alison Krauss--pre all that plastic surgery!

I don't think I have one theme song. Lots of songs from my youth still haunt me. This is one from Simon and Garfunkel. (I think it is too bad that a political candidate has used it recently in his ads.) I've always wondered: what is "Mrs. Wagner pies"? A good question for pi day! Maybe a New York thing?
