Tunesday: Lydia Loveless

Lydia Loveless–what a voice.  Classic, yet transcendent.

By JunkChuck

Native, Militant Westsylvanian (the first last best place), laborer, gardener, and literary hobbyist (if by literary you mean "hack"). I've had a bunch of different blogs, probably four, due to a recurring compulsion to start over. This incarnation owes to a desire to dredge up the best entries of the worst little book of hand-scrawled poems I could ever dream of writing, salvageable excerpts from fiction both in progress and long-abandoned. and a smattering of whatever the hell seems to fit at any particular moment. At first blush, I was here just to focus on old, terrible verse, but I reserve the right to include...anything. Maybe everything, certainly my love of pulp novels, growing garlic, the Pittsburgh Steelers and howling at the moon--both figuratively and, on rare occasions, literally.

My taste in music is varied. My heart belongs to Ol’ Blue Eyes and the blues singers like Billie (and the still lamented Janis Joplin), but I love me some country, too – especially THIS sort of country. She has a great voice. Good stuff.


Thanks for introducing me to Miss Loveless. Of course I immediately fired up youutube for more. Here’s another version, just her and the standup bass down by the river in Austin.


Don, I missed that one–it’s fantastic. Kate–my affection of country music sort of snuck up on me. I was all punk rock and attitude when I was younger, and disliked country because it was my dad’s music. Now, I’m a sucker for the simplicity of it though I can’t stand mainstream pop country.
