Eric Taylor's "Whooping Crane."
I've loved Eric Taylor's "Whooping Crane" since I first heard Lyle Lovett's version on his Natural Forces album. Lyle and his band do a bang-up live version too, of course.
I'm not sure if I enjoy Eric Taylor's version, but I have to admit that Lyle's perfect interpretations of songs often ruin the original versions for me.
I tried to perform a little version of it a couple years ago. There are much better interpretations out there, however.
A great goal.
The Leafs won in regulation tonight. That makes me happy. This goal's pretty great, too.
A rough mix.
I've had some people asking to hear the songs I'm currently working on. Here's a rough mix of "Last Love," which I wrote last September in Egypt. It features my partner, Rachel Nordstrom, on vocals.
Sound of Contact's "Pale Blue Dot"
A few posts ago, I showed a few examples of the way numerous animators have recently adapted Carl Sagan's "Pale Blue Dot" segment from Pale Blue Dot. Here's a song based on the theme.
My cousin Kelly is a frequent contributor to Sound of Contact and got some writing credits on "Pale Blue Dot." I imagine he played those guitars as well. He's got a great sense in creating that melodic wall of sound. It's good, tight stuff.
