i've gone a bit country since i met you baby
i used to be so rock 'n' roll
it's a question of confidence, maybe
wandering off down a long, dusty road

banjo and violin

once i was lost in the crush of the crowd
and drums coming up through the floor
now it's lone strings that cry out loud
in minor keys whispered
through the cracks in the door

you walked in like a lonesome highway
tumbleweed at your heel
the question is, 'how big does the skey get?'
and am i alone in what i feel

if this is the state you find me in
blame it on the banjo and violin
blame it on the way i've been travelling
blame it on the banjo and violin

I love a well done tango.

Haha, the first verse does it for me. Makes me grin every time.
Channeling early Dylan.  Sounds good.

Of course, there are two   3 inch speakers about 12 inches behind my head and a sub woofer at my heels ( as every good dog should be), so hearing it may be easier in those circumstances.

still not hearing it myself.   The instrumental break sounds to be an accordion and violin.   Doesn't diminish the tune in any way of course.  Maybe i'll hear the banjo next listen.

 
Try to use stereophonic equipment. {#Mrgreen}

They were just in Nashville for a festival.
Nice echo. Haunting.

I absolutely loved his music when I was a kid. {#Redface}
Eclectic, right Bill? Bit like a cross between Dueling Banjos and Miserlou. Fine.
I hear violins, but no banjos.

The sound reminds me of Shivaree.


So verrrry bored of this

Between Last Night and Us...

I've had that conversation before...

I've heard a lot of people want to ban sax & violins but I say what's wrong with them?

I remember that lovely Lawrence Welk fellow, with that one-a, two-a.

How can a jazz band play without a sax, or an orchestra without violins? That's just silly.

And that gal country group that got into trouble - you know, the Pixy Sticks? - how could they play without their violins?

I think we need MORE sax and violins! Bring back Ed Sullivan!

Have a nice day!
(old joke. sorry, I couldn't resist. I'll go back to working now) 

I still love this song ... such a cool mix of sounds, and her voice. Great lyrics too.

Uh oh.  We are veering dangerously off-course here, first headed down Mediocrity Highway and looks like we are about to take a wrong turn on Sucko Blvd.  Please abort this mission and return to Metallica immediately.

I don't OD on RP and this is the first I've heard the Audreys. Get outside some and the songs will refresh themselves.

Me too!
i was just imagining Waits singing this tune (OK, replace "imagining" with "singing along in a laying-it-on-thick-Waits imitation voice"... but i digress) and Bill follows it up with a Little Drop of Poison! yay, i love this station!
This seems tango-influenced to me...even with the odd instrumentation. Shades of the Gotan Project!

Isn't a banjo that is being strummed at the beginning?

This is on my Christmas wish list ....... someone had better get it for me, or there will be hell to pay :)
I just received this CD (one for me and another for a friend) in the mail. My wife doesn't know it yet, but she's giving it to me for Christmas. Can't wait to hear the whole CD.

Sounds like the Howling Bells and Heather Nova formed a new band.
whole album is great...g'day mate! :bananajam:
This song has been in my head for a week. Glad to hear it again!
I just got this CD. Highly recommended! Thanks Bill for turning me on to yet another great band I never would have heard otherwise.
She's got a "mmmmmmmmmmmm nice" kind of voice. :wink:
Any relation to "Sax and Violins"?
4->3 I am getting bored of it.

This is the first time I hear this song. Very nice instrumentation and the vocals are H O T T. A solid seven!

How right you are! My thoughts exactly. I like it.

I tend to think its the banjo and violin from country songs thats turning her away from the rock and roll she used to be/before meeting him, etc not necc. IN this song

This is the second time I've heard this track and my curiosity is definitely piqued, I must hear more of this band. Definitely seductive. :boohoo:

Taasha Coates. Yes. Mmmm Hmmm... more please. :heartkiss:
I blame Violin mostly.
I am so captivated by this beautiful 'tango' and this band who just recently finished their 'Sheets to the Wind' tour and visited us here in WA, very cool dudes I must say!
Wow.
Definitely different.....different is good!
:guitarist: :boohoo:
My cup 'o tea!
Excellent!!! Simply excellent.

Really loving this band. Those Aussies always grab me.
Yipee! :dance: Love it! Love ém!
