27 March 2015 - Glen Campbell - Wichita Lineman

A lot of people ask me, "Tony, what is your favorite song?"   It's a fair question.  It is a tough question, and something of a moving target.  I usually give an answer that is my favorite song of the moment.

I do, however, have a favorite song of all time. You might have seen me mention it - on Totally Covered.  Yes.  This is a repost.  Of a cover. 

But it's more than that. 

It's a reminder of my childhood.  During the 70's, I had a lot of Glen Campbell's music foisted upon me by my parents.  Well, many years later, I revisted some of it, and, to my surprise, I was a fan.  And now, it's a go-to song for me.

And it's a reminder of my musical failings.  Glen Campbell no longer tours.  I will never see him live.  But at least I have this recording.
