This is a guest post from the League’s own Will Truman!
About twelve years ago, I became a fan of a particular band. There were two web sites for the band at the time. The unofficial one was better because it had all of the lyrics to every song.
A year or so after becoming a fan, I made a friend through blogging. As it turned out, he ran the unofficial site of the band that I had become a fan of.
A year or so after that, I met his friend. She was the one that painstaking transcribed all of the lyrics which were not always easily decipherable. She managed to do this while a medical student.
At some point after that, I married her.
So, as we’re at almost exactly ten years from the day where that kind of important third one occurred, I thought I would share some of their songs. If you have a strong allergy to anything country, it’s probably not for you. But if you have any tolerance, most of them fall between country and rock. For your benefit, I will rate the Country Quotient from 1 (Tom Petty) to 5 (Garth Brooks)
I put this one first because it’s a 2 on the CQ. It actually came out after most of the above transpired, but it’s one of my favorite songs of theirs.
The second is one of the best pissed-off-jilted-lover songs I’ve ever heard. Do note that it has lyrics that might be inappropriate for the workplace. (Country Quotient: 4, it’s a bar song)
Since the previous two don’t come with videos, I thought I would share a catchy tune of theirs with of those fancy music videos (CQ: 2):
And a live tune (CQ: 4):
