Thread: Country Songs You Actually Like

  1. #1

    Country Songs You Actually Like

    Yes, I went there


    It's well documented that LSP/DKB is pretty anti-country, I know I am. But if we're honest, we all do have certain country songs or artists that we do like. Let's get if off our chests.


    Few of mine-

    I also do not listen to country more than like twice a year of my own volition. Obviously living in Iowa, you hear country music out at the bars and shit. Unavoidable. But anyway








    ^containing the lyric,

    There's a gateway in our minds
    That leads somewhere out there, far beyond this plane
    Where reptile aliens made of light
    Cut you open and pull out all your pain














    My big thing that I hate with country (I hate it with rock also) is songs that are ABOUT "being" country, that have the word "country" in the chorus, that list a bunch of country stereotypes as an affirmation of the singer or listener's identity. I would rather a song just BE recognizably country based off instrumentation or vocal twang. As in many fields, the old ways and days are better than what makes the radio now.

    I dunno that non-country artists doing a country song counts. Like Ryan Adams or the Stones.


    I'm with you though on the "being country" songs. Also country party songs (Red Solo Cup, This Is How We Roll, etc) and songs about trucks or tractors.


    That's part of why Sturgill Simpson is so good, like that lyric you posted. Nobody else in country is singing about aliens.


    Not that kind anyway.

    I like the "Country" music of the '70s/'80s, that isn't Country music, like,



    One tonal shift away from being ELO.





    Peaches & Herb? No, it's "Country".






    Hank Williams would get drunk and kick the shit out of this faggot.



    Best Country Vocal Performance by a Male Artist nominee Jerry Reed



    Really? 'Cause it sounds like T. Rex.

    I have probably found myself whistling, humming or singing that song to myself, an average of once a month, since it came out.
    Probably once a week with:



    I whistle th^t as much as I do Jimmy Page solos.
    The Lord knows why.
