What I Watched Last Night

Music Choice Classic Country Channel (703)

Thursday , June 8

1. Do You Love As Good As You Look/Bellamy Brothers

"Honey, do you love as good as you look?
Can you satisfy your man the way your body says you can?
Judging by the cover, I'd love to read the book
Honey, do you love as good as you look?"

2. She's Single Again/Janie Fricke

"She's single again
Hold on to your men"

"Is this number four? Number five?
Tell me how many men has she buried alive?"

3. Southern Rains/Mel Tillis

Music Choice Trivia: Mel Tillis enjoys gardening, cooking, fishing, and painting.

4. You and I/Eddie Rabbit and Crystal Gayle

This is the Classic Country station, right? Not Today's Country?

This song is from Eddie Rabbit's Greatest Hits. I suppose the term "greatest" is relative.

5. Kiss An Angel Good Mornin'/Charley Pride

Finally, some real country!

"You've got to kiss an angel good mornin'
and let her know you think about her when your gone
You've got to kiss an angel good mornin'
and love her like the devil when you get back home"

6. El Paso/Marty Robbins

"I saddled up and away I did go
Riding alone in the dark
Maybe tomorrow a bullet may find me
Tonight nothing's worse than this pain in my heart."

7. Never Be You/Rosanne Cash

She can write songs - see Seven Year Ache - but the 80s-ish sheen is just too much.

8. I Tell It Like It Used To Be/T. Graham Brown

Can a song like this from 1985 by T. Graham Brown really be a classic?

Let's see what's on Today's Country. Maybe the channels got switched.

9. Something's Gotta Give/LeAnn Rimes

"Thought by now she'd have a man
Two car seats and a minivan"

Ugh. Suburban country. Isn't that an oxymoron?

She does have a great voice, though.

Let's try the Bluegrass Channel.

10. Tragic Love/The Stanley Brothers

"Come pretty young girls give me your attention
To these few lines I've tried to write
About a man who I won't mention
Who courted of his charming bride

"And when her parents came to know him
They tried so hard both day and night
To separate here and her own true lover
Her and her own true heart's delight

"She turned her back upon the city
She viewed the fields and meadows 'round
She came upon a broad river
And in the shade of a tree sat down

"Her true love being not far behind
He heard her make a mournful sound
And looking on her lifeless body
As she lay cold upon the ground

"He then took out his silver weapon
He pierced it through his tender heart
Sayin' let this be a dreadful warning
For all true lovers that have to part

11. I'm So Dog Gone Used To Lovin' You/The Reno Brothers

12. Lookee Here/Old School Freight Train

13. Livin' On The Mountain/Del McCoury

"Livin' on the moutain
Drinkin' from the fountain."


14. Blue Yodel #1 (T Is For Texas)/I think this is a Johnny Cash song that Jimmie Rodgers also did, but I'm not sure who's doing it right now.

"I'm gonna buy myself a shotgun, with a great long shiny barrel
I'm gonna buy myself a shotgun, with a great long shiny barrel
I'm gonna shoot me a rounder oh that stole away my gal

"I'd rather drink muddy water, and sleep in a hollow log
I'd rather drink muddy water, and sleep in a hollow log
Than to be in Atlanta treated like a dirty hog

"Well it's T for Texas, T for Tennessee
T for Texas, T for Tennessee
T for Thelma, the girl who made a wreck out of me"

15. The Blame/Wildfire

Music Choice Trivia: Wildfire's members record background music for the Home & Garden Channel.

And this, apparently, is some of it. Let's see what's happening on the R&B/Hip-Hop Channel.

16. One Wish/Ray J

"Damn baby
Just don't understand where we went wrong
I gave you my heart
I gave you my soul
I gave you . . . "

Uh, no.

On to Classic R&B.

17. Get Off/Foxy

It'll do. Sounds like Morris Day and the Time ripped these guys off.

18. The Love We Had (Stays On My Mind)/The Dells

19. Spring Affair/Donna Summer

And how is this Classic R&B and not Disco?

20. Turn Your Love Around/George Benson

"This time the girl became a woman."

I'm not sure what that means, but it's kind of creepy.

Hey, George Benson does this song? The "On Broadway" guy? I hate that song. I started not ever wanting to hear it again about 20 years ago.
