My Second Favourite Hurtin' Song

I absolutely love Dwight Yoakam's rockabilly-roots sound! His song, The Heart That You Own, is my second all-time favourite hurtin' song. I think the lyrics are clever and the hurtin' is tangible, just the way I like it! The steel guitar is assisted by a plaintive violin too, for an extra heapin' helpin' o' hurtin'! (OMG, stop me before I start talking this way permanently!)

While this video unfortunately features an atrocious set and particularly crappy visual quality, the sound quality is good -- so just close your eyes and listen! It's the best version I could find on YouTube.

And yes, apparently I do have a thing for mullets!

I like the alliterative twang. Sounds so much better to be feelin' fallin' in love.

I really enjoyed it. You have good taste in music. I've actually never heard of Dwight Yoakam so you have introduced me to something new.

Have you ever listed to Jacqueline Du Pre playing Elgar's Cello Concerto? It's the most affecting piece of music I've ever heard and always brings tears to my eyes...
