hand in your ticket...

my own musical score (part 7) ... Songs that connect with or are the foundation for my poetic sensibilities:

keeping to the path when the forest is burning

Ballad of a Thin Man

Bob Dylan

Because something is happening here
But you don't know what it is
Do you, Mister Jones?


I’m surprised at some of my choices, but here they are.

I tried not to censor my approach or guide it in a specific direction. I’m amazed that The Beatles, Robert Johnson, and Tom Waits are absent. But – that’s the way the world of this musical score fell together … On another day, perhaps – and no doubt – a different list would have emerged.

Still a mighty impressive list and a fine denouement. Thanks for compiling this list.

Ohhh. I like this choice, too! I was surprised that I didn't get in a Tom Waits one, too. I agree that tomorrow a different list might come.
