Dang! Didn't even see this topic! Great quote to start the topic off, MIB. I've never actually consciously thought these words, but in the back of my mind, it's a perspective I've always tried to maintain.
This is a line from my favorite song of all time. What I love most about this song is the fact that you feel more like a witness rather than a listener. I can listen to this song, all day, every day and still get chills to the bone when Jim goes into Oedipal Complex. Here is, quite possibly, my favorite music verse of all time...
"The Killer Awoke Before Dawn............. He Put His Boots On"
I do love God's Gonna Cut You Down. Don't know if that's my favorite Cash song, though. A Boy Named Sue and Folsom Prison Blues are definitely among the top. I've been digging some of the older country music songs, lately. Particularly Hank Williams. My favorite country music song of all time, is Ramblin' Man. If you haven't heard Hank Williams sing this one, I recommend giving it a listen.
"I love you, baby, but you've gotta understand When the Lord made me, he made a ramblin' man."

I heard two of the Mojo songs he did on Saturday Night Live, but I can't remember what the names were. I've been holding out buying the album until I find an affordable vinyl copy... I'm thinking that's not gonna happen. Petty is one of the few musicians I'll actually buy the album anymore... I'll just get the record then download the mp3's somewhere, just to support the musicians.
Can't say I've heard of Chevy Van, I'll have to check that out.
You probably have heard Wake Up - it was the highly played trailer song to Where the Wild Things Are
...still looking for intelligent life on THIS planet...
