sad state of affairs....

so as many of you know i work at a dealership here in Milwaukee. As lame as anyones work day can be, mine is much more amusing than one would think. However, if there was one thing that i could say that pisses me off more than anything in my regular work day, it's the video/music that's played over the loudspeakers around this place. Either one of two things has happened.... either the company that produces the music video lineup has no idea what people are listening to these days.... or the modern Harley rider REALLY DOES have this bad a taste in music. i tend to believe its the latter, and its only confimed when bringing a customers bike around to the front of the building and taking a quick listen to whats currently in their CD player. rubbish.

So i can understand the occasional cheesy bikers song here or there, and a little Van Halen never killed anyone, but it's this modern country they throw in there that absolutely kills me. Rascall Flats, Dierks Bentley, Sugarland... country my ass. Pop music with cowboy hats is what i prefer to call it, and it's a damn shame. Every song is just talking about who's country, whats country, shes country.... and not a single one of it sounds like anything more than a pile feces to me. it's like everyone in Nashville decided that theres too many people out there that don't like country... lets make it sound more like britney spears with boots and the American public will love it.

and sadly, they do.

Anyway, I've had this song stuck in my head for the last couple of days, so i figure you might as well too. one of my favorite tunes by a REAL country singer.
the one and only Waylon Jennings.

Shooter Jennings is coming to town, and rumor is he's doing all Waylon songs. Not positive tho.
