Friday Five – City Songs

February 29, 2008
  1. Little Feat – Oh, Atlanta  This isn’t the Bad Co. song by the same title.  I love me some Feats.
  2. Steve Earle – Ft. Worth Blues  A moving tribute to the late Townes Van Zandt.  Watch as this performance literally moves Nanci Griffith to tears.
  3. The Vaughan Brothers – D/FW (That’s Dallas/Fort Worth to you and me).  Instrumental.
  4. Bob Dylan – Brownsville Girl  Learn the only thing we really knew about Henry Porter.
  5. Lucinda Williams – Pineola  You could do a list of Lucinda’s city songs alone, and they’d all be great.  This one is my favorite.

Bonus:

Angel from Montgomery by Bonnie Raitt and John Prine.  It’s a fan “video” set to what may be my favorite version of this song.
