#450: John Prine by John Prine

2.07.2011

John Prine by John Prine (1971)

Favorite Track(s): "Angel From Montgomery" (only mentioned because his writing it allowed Bonnie Raitt to sing it far superior-ly)

Thoughts: IT HAS COME TO MY ATTENTION THAT JOHN DENVER IS NOT, I repeat, NOT ON THIS LIST. And that makes me full of senseless, boiling rage. Because John Denver is one of my saints, ok?

Did John Prine make me want to fall in love with a mountain, or serenade a creek, or share my life story with the trees? No. Did I imagine what medley of the songs I wanted for my dream fake-wedding to Gok Wan? No. Am I going to start a church with theology based off the lyrics from the album? No. THOSE ARE THINGS THAT ONLY JOHN DENVER MAKES ME FEEL/DO/WANT. Probably because John Prine writes lovely lyrics like these from "Pretty Good":

Molly went to Arkansas, she got raped by Dobbin's dog
Well, she was doing good till she went in the woods

And got pinned up against a log

Pretty good, not bad, she can't complain

Cause actually all them dogs is just about the same


Ugh.
