Awesome song....A true classic.  Listening to that song and lyrics brought back some fond memories of a childhood past.  Thanks for sharing the Tin Man.....

So glad you enjoyed the song, sugar....some memories are simply too powerful ever to disappear, and the right song is perfect to be in touch with them!!

Happy May day to you, sugar. It's a gorgeous day here for the 4th day in a row....how special is that? May will be a new beginning for you, I hope. I will be traveling a bit--three weekends...Tenn/Smokies, Houston, then N. Va. to see the grandkid later this month.

Listening to the Nekko Case Fox Confessor disc...not bad, but not revelatory either. I must be missing something! Her arrangement of John the Baptist is fun, if unorthodox.

But it does make me think of other songs about foxes. Custer Larue, of the Balitmore Consort, does a wonderful one, The Fox Went out on a Chilly Night on her Daemon Lover disc. And of course there is Steeleye Span's Tempted and Tried disc which featurues a fox on the cover and a truly wonderful song about the cunning fox,:

The fox is special to me. Todd is the Irish word for fox, you see.

Wish I could link to the Steeleye Span song, but these classics of theirs will have to do:

Cincy Man sounds like your going to be very busy during the month of May.  Glad to hear you will have time for some R & R.  I will view those videos in 5.  The youngest turns 16 on Sunday.  Hoping the weather is sunny.  How I would love to spend sometime outdoors.

Speaking of the youngest, he might enjoy some great guitar work on this timeless classic.

I am sure you have something special planned for his big one!!

I am going to get some sun at noontime, but not too much!

The youngest is learning some old "Kansas" music.  He is doing really well.  Wants a drum set for his big day!  Dorothy Gail would be so proud of him!  Lunch time and sun sounds like a great plan.  I'm thinking that on the lunch time half hour would be a great time for SUN.  Im watching the videos now...thanks for sharing.

A very beautiful piece of music to share--strikes me of a fusion in spirit  of ancient beauty and tango sensuality:

CINCY..I watched the first video.  I didn't have the same feeling that you did after listening to the music and lyrics.  Im sure its me!  The second video I wasn't able to get it to play.  I did try.
