Damnit, I’ve become a complete sap.
In a somewhat less mawkish note, I’ve rediscovered John Lee Hooker’s I’m Bad Like Jesse James, which may be the reason I initially fell in love with the blues. His dirty growl through the line, "and cryin’ won’t help you none, gonna sink you in the water," it’s perfection. See if you can dig up the live version- it’s absolutely worth it.
