One of many favorite songs from the past

One of my favorites is The Highway performed by AudioSlave. I forget the name of the singer.

This is something special. I'm hoping you'll listen and read the lyrics. Very interesting, written and performed by someone special. Enjoy!
The title is 1952 Vincent Black Lightning. I hope the link works for you.

Here's a sad one. Randy Travis is one of my favorite country music artists. Just in the past few years, he became quite ill, in a coma, and during that time of lifesaving efforts, the fact that he sustained a terrible stroke was not noticed and went untreated. As a result he is still living, but the damage to his brain has taken its toll. I'm posting this song of his, as one of many excellent songs Mr. Travis performed before his misfortune.

I caught the end of the movie “Inherent Vice” last night, and this gem from the ‘60s rolled on the closing credits. What a commanding performance!

Out here in the state where I live, there was an outlaw they called Pretty Boy Floyd. This was written by Woody Guthrie and performed by the Byrds:

Claire De Lune by Claude Debussy.

That classic and old enough to qualify as one of many favourite songs from the past?

Today I stumbled onto an old LP I used to listen to all the time when I was a teenager. Excellent! The artist is the late Wilson Pickett, and the album is Wicked Pickett. Dial it up and listen to all of the songs, wow!

For pure, unadulterated nostalgia I listen to Edith Piaf, particularly her rendition in of “La Vie En Rose”.

Joli Blon by Harry Choates, recorded in 1946. Cajun music. I love it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uk85eUs06q4

Slim Harpo - 1961 - Do you have the guts to listen to it all the way through just one time? I love it!

OK, now check out Sun House, followed by Howlin' Wolf.

I really should hate this song, but I have always liked it:
.

Frank Ifield's cover of "I Remember You", 1962
.
About new music - there's a lot of good stuff currently being made. You just are not going to hear any of it on radio or TV.

Being very patriotic, my foremost pet peeve is how most artists(probably poor choice of words) have to reinvent the National Anthem. It is really sad for me to mute them as I just cannot listen. Once they are done, the crowd really roars, in my opinion it is because the artist is finally done!! Sorry, just had to express myself.
I totally agree with this.
Any country's national anthem is not a vehicle for artistic improvisation. It's like deciding to add polka dots to a flag.

Sadly, the Canadian national anthem ("Oh Canada") has been so corrupted that I cannot find a version with a proper ending. They all insist on ending it with the last two notes an octave too high. Stop showing off, people.
[*pause for a few minutes of plinking on a guitar*]
Okay, I think I've got it.
The first and last notes should be the same, in the same octave, and with the second-last note being two semi-tones lower.

Frank Ifield and “I Remember You”...I’d almost forgotten both. Brings back memories of Hank Snow and “I’m Moving On”. Thanks for the memories.

Yay! They got it right this time.
I heard this on the radio - 2019 "Remembrance Day ceremonies from the National War Memorial in Ottawa".
Jump ahead to 1:02:40, until 1:02:51.
