Just so you know, I’m participating again today with a little help from my friends…again!
I’ve got an interesting song for you. One that has been covered a lot, and I really should have thought of it on my own, but well, you know me…dumb blonde here.
I want to dedicate this to all of you out there who have a past love for whom you still feel some affection. No matter how much time has passed and even when the right thing is to move on, the love – if genuine – remains. I personally know this to be true and have these feelings myself. I often wonder if there is anyone out there who harbors such feelings for me. OK, probably best not to dwell on such things.
The song today is a Bob Dylan classic. It’s appropriate to use it at this time, as I’m currently freezing here in Tahoe, and Bobby hails from one of the coldest places in the US; Hibbing, MN. Ever been there; I have.
There are a gazillion covers of this tune, some really good and some not so much. Keith Richards has one with some nice guitar work; plain, simple and kind of sweet, but his voice…YIKES! He makes Dylan sound like a nightingale.
Let’s get on with the contest, shall we?
First up with ‘The Girl From the North Country’, Crosby, Stills & Nash:
Next The Waterboys doin’ the same tune:
Now you know what to do and how to do it. Leave me a comment with your vote, and hey, what the heck, if you have one of those past loves that you would like to tell me about, I would love to hear your story.
When you’ve finished up here, head on over to the home of TSMOTP, Mr. Stephen T. McCarthy and check out his BATTLE. I’m sure it will be a good one. Once you’ve given him a vote, follow the links to the other BATTLES taking place today. Please try to visit everyone participating. Heck! Why not join the fun and post your own BATTLE. If you do, let me know in the comment section.
I’ll be back on the 7th with my vote and the final tally, at which time we’ll crown a winner in this here little ole BATTLE. Until that time…Happy Trails!
