I’ve been way behind on a number of fronts this past week. Blame it on that thing called WORK. With a free minute available, here’s an interesting thread sent in by a Townsperson who shall remain anonymous, unless he or she would like to step forth and claim all the credit that is due. To others whose needs I am behind in serving, please hold tight. I do plan on getting up to date with you. Thanks. Take it away, Townsperson Who Shall Remain Nameless Unless Desired Otherwise!
I’ve developed a fascination lately with a trio of songs that draw on the tango. I’m thinking there must be any number of examples of this, but I wouldn’t know how to begin to look for them. Any ideas?
Here are 3 examples:
1. Firewater, “Bourbon and Division”
2. Cory Branan, “The Snowman”
3. Joe Henry, “Stop”
If the last of those sounds weirdly familiar, it’s because Henry’s sister-in-law had some success with a reworking of it titled, “Don’t Tell Me.” His sister-in-law being Madonna.
