A Song That (oddly) Perks Me Up: “HOME OF THE BLUES” by JOHNNY CASH (1957)

<<<{***}>>>

…I Walk And Cry While My Heartbeat…

…Keeps Time With The Drag Of My Shoes…

…The Sun Never Shines…

…Through This Window Of Mine…

…It’s Dark At The Home Of The Blues…

*** **** ***

HOME OF THE BLUESIs A Personal Favorite Song By JOHNNY CASH, Originally Recorded In 1957.

*** **** ***

…Oh, But The Place…

…Is Filled With The Sweetest Memories…

…Memories So Sweet That I Cry…

…Dreams That I’ve Had…

…Left Me Feelin’ So Bad…

…I Just Wanna Give-Up…

…And Lay Down…

…And Die…

*** **** ***

JOHNNY CASH

*** **** ***

…So If You’ve Just Lost Your Sweetheart…

…And It Seems There’s No Good Way To Choose…

…Come Along With Me…

…Misery Loves Company…

…You’re Welcome At The Home Of The Blues. …

However, While This May Be A Number By JOHNNY CASH, I Sincerely Prefer Listening To JOAQUIN PHOENIX PerformHOME OF THE BLUESOn The 2005 Soundtrack From The FilmΒ “WALK THE LINE!!!

Walkin’ Along To The “WALK THE LINE” Soundtrack!

Wow, My Peeps.

I’ve NEVER Done A 2+Mile Walk So Quickly.

And I Did It This Morning As The Title Of This Post Suggests.

I Did It To The Original Motion Picture Soundtrack…

WALK THE LINE

…Which Features…

JOAQUIN PHOENIX

…And…

REESE WITHERSPOON

…Singing The Tunes Of…

JOHNNY CASH

…And…

JUNE CARTER CASH

!!! !!! !!!

Now…

…Don’t Get Snippy With Me For My Next Statement, But…

…I Honestly…

…Truly…

…Sincerely…

…LOVE THIS SOUNDTRACK.

.Period.

WHY, You Ask???

BECAUSE…

…I Prefer…

JOAQUIN PHOENIX

…Singing The Songs Of…

JOHNNY CASH

…Over The Actual Singing Of…

JOHNNY CASH

.Period Period.

Getting Back To The Soundtrack Itself…

…It Really Really REALLY Is Great Great GREAT For Walking.

It Sets A Rather Unique Pace, As It’s Such A Unique Sound…

…And I Enjoy The Hell Out Of It.

Even Though The Lyrics Are Priceless…

…The Pace And Rhythm Are TOTAL PERFECTION In Regard To Going Out-And-About On A Morning Stroll.

I Did My 2+Mile Journey So So SO Quickly This Morning, And It Felt WONDERFUL!

The Soundtrack Contains Some Songs That I Consider True-Blue-GEMS.

It Features Such Songs As…

I WALK THE LINE

GET RHYTHM

CRY CRY CRY

HOME OF THE BLUES

…And…

IT AIN’T ME, BABE

…All Of Which Will Get You Movin’ Really Well…

…But They’re Not The Crown Jewels Of Said True-Blue-GEMS.

No, That Honor Goes To The Songs…

FOLSOM PRISON BLUES

…And Especially To…

COCAINE BLUES

…And…

JACKSON

!!! !!! !!!

Of All The Songs…

…My Favorite Individually Sung Song Would Have To Be…

COCAINE BLUES

…But My FAVE FAVE Song Is The Duet…

JACKSON

…BY FAR And FO SHO, My Peeps!!!

!!! !!! !!! !!! !!!

This Album…

WALK THE LINE

…The Original Motion Picture Soundtrack…

…I Get An Odd Sense Of Pleasure That I’ve Yet To Understand.

I’m Not A Huge Fan Of Country Music, As You’re All Already Aware, But I DO Love THIS Soundtrack.

If You’re Ever A Touch Bored…

…And You Feel Like Listening To Something That Can Really Get You Going…

…Something That Makes You WANT To Do SOMETHING…

…ANYTHING…

…Provided It’s An Activity That Gets You Moving About.

Give It A Chance, My Peeps.

The Beat…

…The Pace…

…The Rhythm…

…The Lyrics…

…And The Amazingly Crisp Vocal Performances Of JOAQUIN PHOENIX And REESE WITHERSPOON

…Make This Album Very Unique In Its Own Little Way…

…And I Consider It A Regular Triumph For A Movie Soundtrack.

Check It Out Whenever, My Peeps.

Doesn’t Matter When.

Just Give It A Go Sometime.

You Might Be Very Very VERY Surprised.

I Generally (as a rule) HATE Surprises…

…But This Is A Rather Nifty Little Surprise…

…And One That I Was Happy To Discover.

The Movie Itself Is Pretty Damned Good, Also.

Might Wanna Check That Out, Too, Kiddies.

Just Sayin’…
