This song truly stirs the soul of this Atheist. Grappling with even the idea of faith is a tough one for me. Great art is the one of the few things that leaves me so deeply vulnerable that I an consider the existence of the divine - https://youtu.be/vXN3AhBQLZQ?si=FOvROAgLk0gOuz42

Yeah, kills me. Every time. The God & County shit has never been my thing. I understand that it works for most and I'm fine with it. What leaves me in a heap every time is when Mr. Ballou begins to express to the woman he loves, fully knowing that he is about to die, that he regrets not being a better man at times. I think most of us can understand.

Come all without, come all within
You'll not see nothing like the mighty Quinn
Come all without, come all within
You'll not see nothing like the mighty Quinn
Everybody's building ships and boats
Some are building monuments
Others jotting down notes
Everybody's in despair
Every girl and boy
But when Quinn the Eskimo gets here
Everybody's gonna jump for joy
Come all without, come all within
You'll not see nothing like the mighty Quinn
I like to go just like the west, I like my sugar sweet
But jumping queues and making haste
Just ain't my cup of meat
Everyone's beneath the trees feeding pigeons on a limb
But when Quinn the Eskimo gets here
All the pigeons gonna run to him
Come all without, come all within
You'll not see nothing like the mighty Quinn
Come all without, come all within
You'll not see nothing like the mighty Quinn
Let me do what I wanna do, I can't decide at all
Just tell me where to put it
And I'll tell you who to call
Nobody can get no sleep, there's someone on everyone's toes
But when Quinn the Eskimo gets here
Everybody's gonna want to doze
Come all without, come all within
You'll not see nothing like the mighty Quinn
Come all without, come all within
You'll not see nothing like the mighty Quinn
Come all without, come all within
You'll not see nothing like the mighty Quinn[/youtube]

I know Tarantino says he's only gonna do one more flick, but I would love to submit to him that this track would be VERY fun over some really overt violence - https://youtu.be/z7vS1O7RsKg?si=ivjV5787YAl-jSLc

Ronald, nice share on the Civil War letter. Teared up listening to that guy facing his death and saying goodbye to the woman he loves.

Cool track:

This one brings me right back to not going to school in the mid-late 90s simply to traverse Sacramento and San Francisco. Before shit fell apart, this is what the vibes were - https://youtu.be/byDCJ4dDkHM?si=w2oYDbhIDQF5hR5R

My absolute fav shit is Hip-Hop, Jazz, Blues, R&B, Soul, Funk & the like. I was fairly recently introduced this this track. I enjoy it a great deal. I suppose my horizon is expanding - https://youtu.be/6fVE8kSM43I?si=QQvS35OaQpzLfN_f

Haven't given Amy Winehouse a fair shake. Damn, what a voice....

Heard about this band a couple days back, chill instrumentals:
