Weird that I like Matt Dillon, and atmospheric movies in exotic locales, and yet haven't seen this film.  Thanks for a nudge.

Currently listening to ragtime selections on youtube.  (once in a while, someone gets the tempo right, doesnt rush it)

It's my 21 year old music set I'm listening to tonight from the time I was making my life as a dj, it was the best time of my life.

Poor old Johnnie Ray
Sounded sad upon the radio
Moved a million hearts in mono
Our mothers cried
Sang along, who'd blame them?
You've grown (You’re grown up!)
So grown (So grown up!)
Now I must say more than ever
(Come on, Eileen...)

Come On Eileen was a huge hit in the States when I was in my mid twenties.

While Johnny Ray was popular in Australia, and did at least one tour here, that particular song never made it. My Sister certainly had a crush on him, as did most teenagers at that time in the early fifities.

Wondering what anyone makes of this 1973 recording by the late John Fahey.

Obviously an accomplished acoustic guitar player,he did  though in his latter years  repudiate the music he made along these lines

To my mind this music is very easy to follow  and you can see  how he allows the various themes to develop and kind of collapse in themselves and then pick themselves up  as a new idea takes over the discord that that was setting in.

This seems to me to keep repeating itself as a pattern - a series of hopeful developments that end in disappointment only for a germ of hope to break through for a period

 

Is that nice to listen to ?

 

Some of his better known pieces are more straightforward  and can be fairly optimistic  but this seems to alternate all the time

Is that how others  hear this music?
