The Tweedy show

Recommended Posts

ALTWYS might be my new second favorite solo acoustic song! Love the way that turned out.

Totally agreed. This is not one I expected to hear as solo acoustic. Loved it.

No Sense In Lovin' sounded so damn good, great to see this song come back. I would love to hear the modern Wilco treatment to some of those deeper Jeff cuts from Anodyne.

Jeff needs a credit on Burned for guitar.

Thanks for the info! I must have been typing out my notes when it showed Jeff with a guitar because I don't remember seeing him play during that song.

Save It For Later is burned into my consciousness as a Pete Townshend song. I didn't hear the original version until many, many years later.

It is a father who has a son like him for sure, as we say in Sweden, and next generation will still know of wise benefit of the ABBA!

No. I believe his friend is named Merwin Lichtenstein (sp).

 

Got it --- W.S. Merwin is one my favorite poets --- would have been cool if there was a Tweedy/Miller connection.

I'm almost 100% sure the childrens' song is Clean Up Song by ELF Learning. I was googling while they were singing, and just as they were finishing I found lyrics that I believe were a match. Just googled it again, and I'm pretty confident it's right. There was no mention of Romper Room in what I read, but there is a Romper Room video that showed up in the search results. I assume they're singing a clean up song of some sort, but I'm at work right now and can't watch/listen. (Which is also why I can't check last night's episode to confirm the song.) 

It is also well within the realm of possibility that I am the only person who cares. But I figure, I put Wheels On The Bus on the spreadsheet; why wouldn't I put this one on, too?

Thanks always for doing your great recaps, Kristofor!

Thank you for the kind words, Donna! 
 

It should be noted that I used the wrong link for Susie’s cancer fundraiser. Sorry if that caused any confusion for anyone trying to donate. Somehow I found the link for the one from 2018. (Insert Homer Simpson’s “D’oh!”)

That error has been fixed. Thank you to Susan Miller Tweedy for noticing the error. One of the more surreal sentences that I’ve typed out in this forum. 2020...am I right?

Great find! It caught me off guard, so I didn’t do a Google check. I’ll update it in the recaps. Thank you!
