Hola!

Molt bó el video!
M'agrada molt el country, tinc un munt de vinyls a casa.
Hi ha grups que et poden molar d' "Americana", és com es denomina a la musica actual indie amb influencies de country-rock, folk, rock, etc, per al soundtrack de molts videos, si els has de produir tu, com els Jayhawks, Wilco, Billy Bragg and Wilco, Golden Smog, Lucinda Williams, etc....

Aquest Lp dels Highwayman, el tinc a casa, concretament m'agrada molt el Johnny Cash i sobretot Waylon Jennings, però em sobra una mica Willie Nelson, trobo que te una veu una mica empalagosa.

Dels Jayhawks (la meteo juga un paper important en els seus temes):

Manel (soc l'anònim Jaume), GRÀCIES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Però no et tallis i canta amb mi...

I was a cegesquiman. Along the coach roads I did ride
With sword and pistol by my side
Many a young maid lost her baubles to my trade
Many a soldier shed his lifeblood on my blade
The bastards hung me in the spring of twenty-five
But I am still alive.

I was a sailor. I was born upon the tide
And with the sea I did abide.
I sailed a schooner round the Horn to Mexico
I went aloft and furled the mainsail in a blow
And when the yards broke off they said that I got killed
But I am living still.

I was a dam builder. Across the river deep and wide.
Where steel and water did collide
A place called Boulder on the wild Colorado
I slipped and fell into the wet concrete below
They buried me in that great tomb that knows no sound
But I am still around..I'll always be around..and around and around and
around and around

I fly a starship across the Universe divide
And when I reach the other side
I'll find a place to rest my spirit if I can
Perhaps I may become a highwayman again
Or I may simply be a single drop of rain
But I will remain
And I'll be back again, and again and again and again and again...
