Saturday Night YouTube: Last Waltz Edition!

So, I was trying to decide what to listen to while I did my exercise bike time and I looked around to see what there was I hadn’t listened to in a while.  Usually, I listen to either Gackt Red or Gackt Blue (highly reccomended), sometimes I listen to Elton John from the Garden (Greatest Hits Live), somtimes Freddy’s Tribute Concert, and sometimes the Statler Brothers Farewell show (all just fabulous).  Then I looked, and I saw the Last Waltz!  Bingo!

I mean, you can start out Up on Cripple Creek!

You can feel Helpless (and yeah…that’s Joanie singing backup)!

You can feel The Weight!  Go Pops and Mavis!

You can see what’s going on down on the Mississippi with Emmy Lou and Evangeline!

You can celebrate the Night the Drove Old Dixie Down (with some Old Time Religion)!

And you can be forever young with Bob!

If you don’t have The Last Waltz, or have never seen it (heaven forfend), get it.  NOW!

Is the Pony/Pie/Hide rating system too cutsie?

  1. It’s enough to keep you from being bitter, to stay away from candidate diaries, and to remember just how good some music really is!

    yep, some good good tunes and musicians there. That version of “Helpless” as to be one of my all-time favorites… Neil smiles!

  2. Today (Sunday) is the traditional New Year celebration here in SE Asia in the countries of Cambodia, Myanmar, Thailand, Laos and a small portion of China.

    Here’s some delightful “Songkran” music from Cambodia.
