Wild Horses

It has come to my attention that Subo covers Wild Horses on her first album. This was a song written by Mick 'n' Keef when the latter was inspired by the great Gram Parsons. It is, I note, 334th in the Rolling Stone list of greatest songs of all time, a list which mysteriously excludes Schubert's An die Musik. Wild Horses is a fine country song with exceptional lyrics. I text Nige with the Subo news. 'I wish I didn't know that,' he replies.

  1. It must be Stones day in the blogscape. Personally I'd have put Wild Horses at 337th (334th? Those IDIOTS at Rolling Stone Magazine!)

    Mick and Charlie Watts were at the cricket the other day. Mick still looks like Mick but Watts looked like a really, really old man.

  4. We should be thankfull that, as yet, the melodic Sue hasn't started emulating Britney. Or worse, doing a cover version of Nutbush City.
    Unfortunately she reminds me of a karaoke night I once fell into, in Gdansk.

  6. Susan B wash your mouth out. Airborne Toxic Event is a fantastic name for a band - a reference, as I'm sure you know, to one of the great American novels, White Noise.

  7. Ed, I didn't know that. Heard o' the novel (Dom Delillo, is it?) but never read it. But I hate that name. It's as bad as, say, "Mucus Membrane."

    But the song is great. Listen on youtube. I played it for my class today and even those young'uns quite liked it. I felt almost hip!

  8. I've heard worse. Almost everyday. What makes it a country song? I mean, I would say it was but I've no idea why (besides, the title's too short). It's a karaoke song, that I don't doubt.

  9. Susan et al, I'm not sure why you think that's a great song. It has no melody and nothing worthwile to remember. Just because it's not electronic doesn't mean it's good music.

    Let's call it a matter of taste.

    I like Wild Horses better from the Rolling Stones. People shoud stop covering songs if they've got nothing to add. I'd rather hear nothing then boring music.

  11. What I want to know is when is she going to cover that great ballad of the Fifties; "Bingo, Bongo,I Don't Want To Leave The Congo". I fill up every time I hear it, just thinking of the folks back home
