Led by Murry Hammond and Rhett Miller, the Old 97’s have been putting out their Texas brand of super-charged country punk for the better part of twelve years. Last year, they released their sixth album, ‘Drag it Up’. The album wraps up with a – well – it can be best described as a dirge.
Tsunamis, the horrible mudslides in California, and of course, the ongoing living Hell that is Iraq… I figured this song fits the bill right about now. I’ll be back at ya with some more high spirited, up-tempo selections, but this song seems appropriate at the moment. May all those poor souls rest in peace…
Cherish every moment of life and count your blessings.
