Why was I born so damn lazy?
I am sitting here doing nothing. I am supposed to set up my studio (have a new computer and mixer), I need to eat (have some fish for the grill), the cobwebs around here are starting to collect dust, my lawn is so high I am tempted to climb up and see if I can find a giant and a goose with golden eggs, hell, I'm too lazy to even go to sleep. What's up with that?

3. You think your lawn is high?
Our lawn looks like The Little House on the Prairie.

4. Ha
It only takes me about 20 minutes to do my whole lawn, and I like it when it is cut, but I just can't get myself motivated enough to cut it. I used to like to cut it when I lived with my parent's. They have a big yard and it was the only time that you could get peace and quiet in that place..lol.

8. I dig
I used to not be lazy until I realized that being not lazy got me just as far as being lazy.

9. Oh good, I'm not the only one?
I sit here reading DU when I should be washing my hair, applying for jobs, cleaning my place up so I can find stuff, going to the bathroom, eating, going to bed, etc., depending on the time of day (or night).

11. Cool! That's more activity than I've had tonight.
By the time I wash my hair, it won't be dry until hours after I should have gone to bed. Maybe I should get up now and do that. :-)

18. Speaking of which....

Just happens that I recorded the thing earlier this week. :D

I know you like some of these kinds of his lesser-known songs, and I was thinking of you when I did that and "Charro!," "Change Of Habit," and some others... :yourock:

19. Downloadin now.
I use to do Change of Habit with one of my bands years ago. That is such a great tune. Charro! is a good one too. Always had that James Bond vibe to it. That was another Mac Davis song if I remember right.

21. Yeah, I think "Charro!" was mac Davis
(maybe with Billy Strange). I always thought the same thing, ever since I was a kid, that it had a James Bond feel to it. Cool instrumental backing by Hugo Montenegro...pity they didn't have Sergio Leone direct the film, though, because it could have been a lot more than it was.

Always loved "Change of Habit," too. Cool as it gets. :D

20. Just listened
Great version. I like the backtrack. Where do you find that stuff?

I just remembered, I used to do that and "Clean up your own backyard" as a medley on acoustic. Well, I still do I guess..lol.

22. We gotta hear this medley!
"Clean Up Your Own Back Yard" is another buried classic...such a great song.

This backing track is off a 32-CD set that I've got now...trouble is that, seeimngly like most such sets, some tracks are spot on and almost indistinguishable from the real thing whereas others are off a little (backing vocalists in a weird key or absent, or doing weird things, and ditto some of the instruments) or a lot (entire song in the wrong key or in the wrong tempo, like the version of the 1966 "How Great Thou Art" that sounds like the music for a damned squaredance. Most of these tracks are very good, but the set's got inconsistencies.

I've still got the pile of CD-Rs I burned for you (been on hiatus from it for months but I'll get back to it before too long, I hope, and send you at least a spindle's worth to start with) and, if you want, I can include these backing tracks...I copied them onto CD-Rs in more logical (chronological) order than they originally arrived and the whole thing takes about 20 CDs as uncompressed 'aiff" files. Want 'em added to the pile?
