Twilight Singers - Candy Cane Crawl
This is fucking epic, Greg Dulli and his smoking band the Twilight Singers go all 70's am rock and then Greg just blows the fucking doors off, (6minute mark roughly) half Solomon Burke half Tom Jones, shit he even says hi to his mama, watch the kids in the front lose their minds and sing every word, check out the women still pushing towards the stage even though the drugs and booze and hard living have made Mr. Dulli damn near unrecognizable from his days fronting the Afghan Whigs, this is fucking rock and roll kids and these half ass bands bopping around today could learn alot from the likes of this crew, one of the best songwriters of his generation, that voice is cigarettes and whiskey and cocaine and many nights that end in sunrise....
so slow down/ lean in/ call up that feeling/ you get when you're reeling/that all to, concealing side of you/ who loves you true/ but they'll just forget it/ they'll just forget it/ that shit'll twist your little mind if you let it/ believe me/ who loves the blue sky/ who wear the dark eye...
and let's not forget the verse of Shine on You Crazy Diamond tossed in for good measure. indeed.

a little James Brown thrown in for good measure at the end... nice.
That song fucking brings tears to my eyes, and for those paying attention those lyrics hit fucking home in my fucked up little existence, this version is aces and i think it's brilliant that these young kids are still connecting to the lyrics of Mr. Greg Dulli.
Nurse- Thought you'd dig that.
Daisy- there was a little Godfather in there not wasn't there.
I love this thing you're doing, posting your favorite songs. I want to do it too.
