    George Jones looks an awful lot like Jim Carrey.... Whose own philosophy on life is something to take note of....

    federica do they have country music in your neck of the woods? Jim Carrey with which face?

    They do, but it's more like this:

    I want to like it....but Country is literally the only genre of music I can’t sit through.

    I did look up the lyrics...very simple...to the point. Things come and go.

    Impermenace can be a beautiful thing.

    Country & Western, traditional Folk... All come, all go... folk songs are maintained, revived or forgotten, re-discovered, re-launched, re-vamped, given a new beat, made popular once again, and 'keeping the old songs alive'... until.....

    Don’t confuse us with Nashville, ;) hahaha

    Federica, different strokes for different folks as the old saying goes. I like all music but most of rap leaves me cold. How about this.

  • TsultrimTsultrim Hawaii Veteran

    I must admit Tennessee is a bit of a blur to me =) It starts with the spelling. =)

    Attachment. For country music lovers only.

    How about some Hendrix - Castles Made of Sand

  • TsultrimTsultrim Hawaii Veteran

    Person, i never got Hendricks, and those lyrics should be banned for depressives. I know he was a virtuoso, maybe i haven't listened to him enough.

    The Fox Went Out One Chilly Night....

    I'd quite forgotten this... We used to sing it at school, and I'd not heard it since then... together with other traditional Folk songs, like 'The Vicar of Bray', 'Green Grow the Rushes oh!' and 'Johnny Todd he was a sailor'....

    Passion, Aggression and Ignorance. You gotta love the three poisons when you hear this one.

  • TsultrimTsultrim Hawaii Veteran

    Federica, thank you for sharing your folk music with me. How nice that you loved it as a child.

    I’ve really enjoyed the Tuvan throat singing ever since I first discovered it some years ago. There’s something primitive yet joyful about it, some celebratory.

    Sometimes I think that Buddhism doesn’t celebrate enough, it’s not very into song and dance.

  • KeromeKerome Love, love is mystery The Continent Veteran

    This is Dutch style folk singing...

  • TsultrimTsultrim Hawaii Veteran

    Kerome, how nice. The sense of camaraderie, of friendship is so appealing. The singer had a nice voice and the whole presentation was relaxed, without tension. Of course the words were all Dutch to me, still I liked it. Did I see a Dutch soccer star and a gold metal Dutch dressage champion?
    Have you ever heard throat singing in person? It's pretty cool.

  • KeromeKerome Love, love is mystery The Continent Veteran

    Yes you did see those... it’s about a particular region in the Netherlands called Brabant, from which the singer hails, and all the people in the video are also from there. It’s a part of the world that knows how to celebrate, they have a Carnival in winter which is a lot of fun.

    I’ve not had the good fortune to hear the throat singing in person, no. I mostly just listen to it on YouTube when the mood takes me.
