My taste in music runs a fairly wide gamut. So wide that I don’t think I can list all the genres that I legitimately enjoy. I even have several collections of “song-poems” that make me happy when I listen to them.
There was a point in my life when I had no use for country music, but then I found a few artists I enjoyed, like Charlie Feathers and Eddie Noack, so I can no longer say that’s true.
I’ve also, over time, ran across songs that fellow boingers have linked to in comments that led me down many unexpected paths full of delight.
So what I would like to do is this:
Anyone interested in playing along, please share a link to a song that you legitimately enjoy, but think is outside of the mainstream; something seldom heard, obscure.
Please keep it to one (or at most two) links per post.
Please don’t give anyone grief for the selections they share. One person’s “obscure” might be someone else’s “mainstream” depending on your/their tastes.
If you play along, thank you. I’m really looking forward to what other people have to share.
Since I mentioned them, I’ll lead off with one from Eddie Noack (although I’m pretty sure this one has been rerecorded a time or two, I still like it):
and one from Charlier Feathers:
and finally (breaking my 2nd rule already), something from another end of my taste spectrum (my wife will not listen to this… ever):
