Thread Name: The wimpiest song ever? Or is it deep?
Subject: RE: The wimpiest song ever? Or is it deep?
I certainly did not intend to demean Rod McKuen's work. I liked some of his compositions and sang a few. I was aware of his upbringing and the sensitivity of his work was probably his answer to it. One song of his which I have always liked was done by Bud & Travis in the early 1960's - "So Long, Stay Well." I believe it was either co-written or with music by Art Podell. The other two that I enjoyed performing were "Doesn't Anybody Know My Name?" and "The World I Used to Know." Not bad stuff, and hardly wimpy.
