My Life According to Chip Taylor

This one came from Vicki, AKA Knitorious. If you want to play, you have to pick a different artist, one artist, and choose one of their song titles that best fits each question, preferably not repeating song titles. This actually was pretty fun. I saw these two perform together in Seattle a few years ago. Chip wrote “Angel of the Morning” years ago, one of the highlights of the evening was when Merrilee Rush, who performed it and made it famous, came up unexpectedly on stage to sing it with him.

I couldn’t find a video of this, but here’s a link to an NPR story about the two of them, click on the “listen” button, this is the first track they perform, and is about 2 minutes in on the audio.

Drop me a note if you decide to play along, I’d love to see what you all come up with.

*I spent an inordinate amount of time trying to get that fracking video to embed here. You’ll need to go on over to fracking u-tube to watch. Some days I hate html with a blind fury fueled even hotter by menopause.
