Glen Campbell* – Wichita Lineman
I am certainly no country music fan. However, I heard this recently and was reminded of it’s wonderful nostalgic quality. This spoke to me as I am feeling a little nostalgic myself at the moment as I spend a few days relaxing in my childhood home before I move down to Dublin.
And the Wichita lineman is still on the line…
KRS One* – MC’s act like they don’t know
I’m just back from a wedding at the very scenic Castle Leslie. Big day! Fun times even if I am starting to feel a little bit of wedding fatigue.
A good friend sent me this track earlier in the week as a reminder of the times when we both discovered and shared lots of hip hop together. He titled his email “One of the greatest hip hop tunes ever (lyrically anyway)”. I don’t know if I can put it any better than that. It also features beats from the excellent DJ Premier, which is always a treat.
One last interesting thing about this track is that my buddy and I first heard it on a KRS One retrospective compilation that I received one Christmas from my Dad which was both an awesome and unlikely present in just about equal measures!
