By the Ozark Mountain Daredevils...

A real one hit wonder if there ever was one...

So easily one of the very best one hit wonder songs...

And one of my favorite songs and one of the best songs ever made...

Excellent progressive instrumentations with really good vocals and awesome lyrics...



http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jackie_Blue_(song)

Quote: "Jackie Blue
Lives her life from inside of a room
Hides that smile when she's wearing a frown
Jackie you're not so down"

"You like your life in a free form style
You'll take an inch but you'd love a mile
There never seems to be quite enough
Floating around to fill your loving cup"

"Jackie Blue
What's a game girl if you never lose
Ask a winner and you'll probably find
Jackie they've lost at sometime"

"Don't try to tell me that you're not aware
Of what you're doing and that you don't care
You say it's easy just a natural thing
Like playing music but you never sing"

"Jackie Blue
Making wishes that never come true
Going places where you've never been
Jackie you're going again"

"Jackie Blue
Lives a dream that can never come true
Making love is like sifting through sand
Jackie it slips through your hand"

"Every day in your indigo eyes
I watch the sun set but i don't see it rise
Moonlight and stars in your strawberry wine
You'd take the world but you won't take the time"

"Jackie Blue
Lives her life from inside of a room
Makes you think that her life is a drag
Jackie what fun you have had"

It always amazes me how so many musical groups can create one or two really good songs and then nothing else much worthwhile listening to...

While other musical groups are able to create dozens upon dozens of songs and even more...

Maybe thats because some groups when they get a little cash and fame they start fighting about control and women and money...

While other groups get along just fine year after year decade after decade...

Although drugs and alcohol have claimed too many famous lives...

We cant really blame drug addiction for breaking up bands or for snuffing their musical creativity...

Because as we all know so many famous band members were severely addicted to drugs and despite that they kept moving forward together...

It would make an interesting read (book) if someone could compile the histories of band creativity/successes in relation to drug use and/or conflict caused by use of drugs.

Although I doubt very much that drugs are going to be able to suddenly transform a talentless person into a talented person but as far as creativity goes heres Aerosmith (from my neck of the woods) with and without chemical assistance and the differences are imo painfully obvious...

An awesome song mostly with chemical assisstance >

Oh, I agree that the talent must be there to begin with, but perhaps with some artists, the drugs act as a catalyst to help still the mind and focus.

From the link below, I agree that hard core drug addiction should not be romanticized. However, a toke now and again isn't damaging, in my opinion.

This awesome song Jackie Blue has been revived and resurrected and returned to the first page after over a year of perplexingly silent absence (*-*)

Perplexing? It's more like cleaning out the refrigerator and finding a box of Chinese takeout covered in green fuzz

Or like cleaning out your top bureau drawer and suddenly and unexpectedly finding that stash of whatever you like to do that you totally forgot about hiding in there (*-*)
