The song Wichita lineman was written by Jimmy Webb.
It was performed as a cover song by many, yet no one reached the depth of emotion in the original. Glen is now playing in heaven.
I’m with Hootie here. Being tangled up in a color is not an idea one can own. It is beautiful art on Bob’s part. He hardly invented the idea of feeling like a color, like, uh, the blues.
The song The First Circle by the Pat Metheny Group, in particular this live version from their album called One From the Road has Been recognized by many people in the music industry as music simply too original to be pigeonholed. . As a gues on jazz albums, Pat with any group was able to sell at the level of pop musicians of their time. The difference between that Metheny group and the pop musicians was that The PMG’s better songs develop over 7-10 minutes – pieces where attention that many escape in to, many have not heard yet.
