« Lyric For The Day 9.11.10 from Preachers and Slaves by Joe Hill | Main | Lyric For The Day 11.11.10 from Hallelujah by Leonard Cohen »




One of my favourites...but it should never be forgotten that the musical and lyrical structure of this song owes a HUGE amount to Dylan's "Subterranean Homesick Blues".
In many ways Norman was not a uniquely original artist, at least musically, but drew creatively on a huge range of secular rock and roll to produce something fresh within the Christian sub-culture of his day... As such he's a great inspiration to people like me who has never had anything approaching an original thought in his life, but is a relatively creative magpie... RIP Larry... And I hope your migraine gets better soon Stocki...
