5 On Friday - Some Things Never Grow Old

Another edition of Trav's 5 on Friday rolls around again.  Be sure to stop by his website for all the instructions and sign in to share your selections.  This is a truly fun meme, and we all want to hear the music you love.

In his song, "Some Things Never Grow Old", Vince Gill has the lines:

Eatin' watermelon down to the rind
Any ol' song by Brother John Prine

Here are five songs by John Prine. I stayed with the lighter ones for this visit, but if you want to give a listen to some of his more serious or seriously funny ones try: Hello In There, Flag Decal, Sam Stone
Oh forget it, just click on the link on his name and do yourself a favor:  See the man in person or buy every piece of music he has ever recorded.

Get a playlist! Standalone player Get Ringtones

Ah, so that's John Prine! Thank you for the introduction.

That's the thing I love about this meme of Travis', it opens up our ears to new music that we may very well end up missing otherwise. Sharing is such a good thing!

I think you introduced me to John Prine a couple of years ago. Thanks for the re-introduction.

I liked when John Prine and Steve Goodman teamed up to sing. It was pretty magical. This morning, I'm thinking of Prine's song "Please Don't Bury Me." I always thought it was funny.
However, Angel From Montgomery is probably on my top 10 list of all-time favorite songs.
