The music meme cop-out

/
I was tagged by Dr.J recently with the song shuffle meme---trouble is, I don't have an iPod/digital music repository, my knowledge of music is spotty at best and my ability to catch lyrics is abyssmal. So I can't participate in any meaningful sense. Thankfully, in response to my plaintive bleating/whining, Dr. J was kind enough to let me off the hook. Nevertheless, since I do love music, I feel a bit guilty about not contributing anything.....so here are some links to songs that popped into my head this Saturday evening.....hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

First off, I love to hear them sing, BluesBoy, Tracy Chapman and Lucille.....esp when Lucille goes solo...




Then, an all-time classic---I was tempted to link the one with Stevie Ray Vaughn (and Salt n Pepa etc), but the recording is poor and too many cooks spoilt the soup in that one eventually, I thought---so let's stick with the original....




But we can't not listen to Stevie Ray either, so here goes a beautiful interlude with Stevie and his singing, crying, guitar....(Bonus: you'll catch some of his 'Superstition' in this clip)........


And for some reason, Satchmo popped into my head....so I'll leave you with the gravelly yet soothing pipes of Louis Armstrong....

The SRV clip I'd never seen. That was SWEET! GREAT interview format to hear SRV speak and show of his love, passion, and knowledge of both music, and how to survive.

The Satchmo clip had me in tears. Airman Adrian Cronaure was in real life likely that large in life over there. Robin Williams played it to the hilt.

Nice WOW Yak, I bow.

Thanks Larue.
I wish I could get my hands on that entire Stevie interview--there are many SRV interviews on Youtube but not many that have him riffing like in this one.
And no worries on the name--yak, AM, AnonM--it's all good and the same to me.
