Thursday Pickin Sweet 16 and a little Willie Nelson

I haven’t checked the results from last week yet, but I’ll add them all up when we get to the Final Four and post the results. If your favorite team is still in and/or your bracket isn’t busted so you still care (unlike TB on both counts) here’s your chance to keep pickin the winners for posterity’s sake in the TB archives.

My winners–Connecticut, Xavier, Memphis, Duke, Arizona, Oklahoma, Kansas, North Carolina

But I’ll probably be listenin to some tunes and playin with Elle instead of watching the games tonight and I think I might have to download one of the great all time albums, Willie’s Red Headed Stranger. I loaned out my CD over five years ago and its time to face the fact that its not coming back to me, so I might as well pony up the 9.99 to itunes. I couldn’t find a 70’s Willie on You Tube, but here’s the album lineup and the 80’s pigtail Willie singin one of the most beautiful songs ever.

  • Time of the Preacher
  • I Couldn’t Believe It Was True
  • Time of the Preacher Theme
  • Blue Rock Montana/Red Headed Stranger
  • Blue Eyes Cryin in the Rain
  • Read Headed Stranger
  • Time of the Preacher Theme
  • Just As I Am
  • Denver
  • O’er the Waves
  • Can I Sleep In Your Arms
  • Remember Me
  • Hands On The Wheel
  • Bandera

I'm a 40 year old lawyer living in Ridgeland, Mississippi. I'm several years and a couple hundred miles removed from most of my old running buddies so I started the blog to provide an outlet for many of the observations and ideas that used to be the subjects of our late night/happy hour/halftime conversations and arguments.

    It is a little for the first two, but I would have said Pitt, UConn, Memphis, ‘Cuse, UNC, Duke, UL, Kansas

    Did that from memory so might be off one.

    TB – you have inspired me to recall my own favorite Willlie Nelson album – Stardust.

  6. irvineredd says:

    JL, I was not aware that you liked Willie Nelson. How is this?

  7. irvineredd says:

    Not that I’m meaning to imply I don’t like Willie. I do. I’ve just never heard you speak of this, that I can remember.

  8. Jessie Lou says:

    Way before your time, my dear IR, I had the cassette of Stardust and I listened to it incessantly. That was right after the Urban Cowboy craze with Mickey Gilley and Johnny Lee. MD’s cousin got picked out of the audience by Johnny Lee to come backstage at his concert – she was quite the looker. A little trivia not much and I digress. I loved “Moonlight in Vermont”.

  9. irvineredd says:

    Ah, the cassette. There’s why I didn’t know that. I didn’t recall any Willie in the now destroyed forever vinyl collection. I might have to peruse around this series of tubes and see if I can find any Willie on vinyl.

  10. RockStarRambler says:

    Willie’s Red Headed Stranger tour was one of RSR’s first concerts. As a loose tribute to Willie, “one of the most beautiful songs ever” and the weather, my weekend selection is So, Peter Gabriel. It’s like a greatest hits album.

    Red Rain
    Don’t Give Up – with Kate Bush
    That Voice Again – my fave
    In Your Eyes
    Mercy Street
    Big Time
    We Do What We’re Told (Milgrim’s 37)
    This is the Picture (Excellent Birds)

  11. Madd Dawg says:

    I am sure that my innocent cousin P.P. would not have gone backstage at a concert!!

  12. Jessie Lou says:

    MD – you have made me gasp and smile all at the same time! We will have to discuss this at some point and compare stories.

  13. Jessie Lou says:

    And I am now listening to the sound track of Urban Cowboy featuring Johnny Lee.

    TB….Brother Carl and I took dates (who will remain nameless) to see willie in jackson….1979 tour….great concert…..both got lucky

  15. JessieLou says:

    Are they nameless because we know them or out of shame?

  16. quail09 says:

    Nameless because we know them….no shame…still savoring the action as a matter of fact….btw, i never kiss and tell…except for the kissing part
