It’s Friday and you know what that means! Another set of random music, straight from the oddly insightful brain of my iPod. You know the rules, but here they are, anyway.

Favorite Song: Time by Mo Mack (my dad). This actually is not a song that my dad wrote, but I’ve always loved it nonetheless. It was written by a friend of his (Hamid Hamilton Camp) and about six or seven years ago, they sat down together so my dad could learn it from it’s source. It’s a good thing they did, as Hamid died last October. His music lives on.
Favorite Album: Relish by Joan Osborne. I particularly love her version of this song as well. Last December while I was in Portland, my sister and I went to the bins (disgusting but wonderful thriftstore in Portland where everything is by the pound), and she kept singing this song in her own, wonderful voice. It’s a good memory.
Seen Live: Mo Mack (my whole damn life) and Cowboy Junkies (last June in Pittsburgh with Ingrid, Cindy and Chris).
