Sunday Music: Down At The Twist And Shout



What's that you say? She's not a certified cajun babe? You weren't listening to the song, obviously. If this cut doesn't get your feet moving, you're either a paraplegic, or you're dead.
And at 3:25, it's one of the few country songs that's only 15 minutes too short. I keep hoping one day I'll wake up, and hear Mary Chapin Carpenter has returned to doing country only, always, and just like this. Until then, I'll just have to put this one on repeat until I get tired of it. Hasn't happened yet in nearly 30 years. Hope it don't for thirty more.

She does a great job on that one! Sadly, she's probably never coming back to country.

She has so many great songs. Musically interesting, real depth in the lyrics. She was too great a talent for "3 chords and the truth"

Great song from a great singer.

Here's another good one, from the original Gulf Coast singing pirate.

although it's probably not possible for most, if you've never lived in Dixie, well, I'm sorry for y'all. you missed out on a big part of traditional America.
