I am a lineman for the county... well, not really, but I love the song!

Music soothes the savage beast...

It also gives you energy, makes you sing, dance, smile, laugh... and sometimes it makes you oh so sad for no specific reason...

I am a fan of every single kind of music there is! What about you?

Glen Campbell is one of my all time favorites.. I can remember when he had a variety tv show when I was a kid, and I would actually come in at the end of a long day of playing in the summertime to watch his show.  Something about Glen Campbell reminded me of my Uncle Terry, who I have always loved so very much.

Today at work, I was listening to another favorite, James Taylor, when lo and behold he sang a Glen Campbell song ~ "Wichita Lineman".

Why does that song get to me??? Who knows ~ but it does!

So I searched a few others that have performed this song. Check them out:

Glen Campbell - an older version

Glen Campbell - a newer version

James Taylor


Johnny Cash

with Stone Temple Pilots

Keith Urban

Michael Stipe & Patti Smith

Cassandra Wilson

OK - I gotta go cry now.....

Which is your favorite?

I am a Putnamaniac that loves all music, and at this particular moment the song "Wichita Lineman" !
