Time is a stubborn thing. You can make it, lose it, save it and lose track of it but you just can’t stop it.

This week’s music thread is dedicated to celebrating those we miss, whether because time has separated us or time has made it hard to see them as much as we wish we could.

They could be songs about missing someone, songs that remind you of someone or songs from someone who is missed.

Wish You Were Here – Pink Floyd

There Will Never Be Another You – Nat King Cole

Time of Your Life (Good Riddance) – Green Day

Okey dokey pokies. Leaving you with this – best line EVER – “and now your memory is just another snake I got to kill” from Big Top Hat by the late great Stephen Bruton, cutest white man on the planet….

PS – Line for Santorum: “And I hear that God can punish you by answering your prayers”

PPS Stephen is not in the video – just the song. Too bad. He was eye candy fer shure. Used to go see him a few years ago in Austin at the Saxon Pub for $5 cover.

Susan Boyle in what I think is the best rendition ever of this song (which,frankly, has not been a huge favorite of mine until this interpretation!). “Unchained Melody”

So much emotion in this version, no KT? She started to cry herself…not to mention her listeners!

kes, I can’t sing it without getting a lump in my throat. Happens every time. Even my Dad liked this song, and he was NOT into rock and roll.

My son is in China–has been since senior year of college-, 2007,-studying Mandarin in Southwest China. I am excited by his life and I miss him hugely. He lived through the earthquake in Chengdu China and met Abigail Washburn and helped her, with MANY others, edit her Sichuan Earthquake Relief Album. She, of course, is a favorite in our music library. We love banjo music! “A Fuller Wine” Everywhere I go I look for you Do you look for me where you go too?…. They say the tardy fruit’s a fuller wine Everywhere I go I look for you Do… Read more »

What a fascinating piece of music, food! Thanks so much for sharing it with us.

You must be so proud of your son, and yet I’m sure you must miss him at the same time.

Great musical choice.

There was a time that you curled up In my lap like a child. You’d cling to me smilin’ Your eyes wide and wild. Now you slip through my arms, Wave a passing hello. Twist away and toss a kiss Laughin’ as you go. You used to say “Read me a story.” And, “Sing me songs of love.” For you were Princess Paradise On the wings of a dove. Now I chase you and I tease you Tryin’ to remake you my own, You just turn away and say, “Please leave me alone.” And I’m a tangled up puppet All… Read more »

And my favorite song of all time, “If I Needed You”, from the late, great Townes Van Zandt, whom I was lucky enough to spend a few evenings with – and even one when he was sober (a rare occurrence).

This song always brings to mind someone I knew a long time ago. I wish I still knew her.
