Got Lost In the Music

Set out about nine this evening to make my return visits to those visiting my Poetry Train poem. My very first stop was Sparky Duck where I found the lyrics and a YouTube video of a 10,000 Maniacs song.

Now, as I've mentioned here before, there are great lacuna in my culture awareness, partly due to strictures against almost all pop culture by the fundamentalist mindset I was raised in. Anyway, I had heard of this group before and also of Natalie Merchant the lead singer tho I hadn't connected her with the Maniacs. I couldn't have picked their faces out of a line up nor their tunes either. But within sixty seconds of listening to Natalie's voice, I was hooked.

Next thing I knew it was after eleven and I had been clicking on related videos for two hours. I watched this one twice before I moved on to more. Before I started this post, I checked out Natalie Merchant on Wikipedia, where I learned she writes most of her songs. And that her mother strictly limited her exposure to TV also.

1 tell me a story:

If you want some transcendental connection, delve into the Maniacs before Our Time in Eden. Blind Mans Zoo, wow. Or, get your hands on the Unplugged album and you will stayed hooked forever. Heck I could hook you up with it.
