It’s Wednesday so it must be Rhyme Time. It’s gotta rhyme every time so today is the next installment of Rhyme Time. The idea comes from my friend and client, Jay Segel. (thank you, Jay!)
As in, today is the perfect time to take a moment and salute the recently departed John Prine. I’ve always believed songwriters are some of the most creative folks on the planet. They listen to the same conversations as the rest of us but they hear and perceive the words and sentences differently from the rest of us mortals. An what a wonderfully gifted songwriter John was. I propose we celebrate his life with a look some lines from his “Angel From Montgomery.”
“THERE’S FLIES IN THE KITCHEN I CAN HEAR ‘EM THERE BUZZIN’
AND I AIN’T DONE NOTHING SINCE I WOKE UP TODAY
HOW THE HELL CAN PERSON GO TO WORK IN THE MORNING
AND COME HOME IN THE EVENING AND HAVE NOTHING TO SAY”
The listener can hear the sadness, honesty and desperation in this conversational rhyme.
See the links below for more on John, the full lyric and the song as recorded by Bonnie Raitt.
