Great new music - Jen Chapin Linger

During the last 3+ years I have often found myself often listening to my Harry Chapin music collection to provide me with reinforcement of some of my values...human dignity, beneficence, and reflexivity. Let's not even start on what I think Harry would have to say about the current political situation in the U.S.

Well yesterday after I left IS_SOTL I wandered into Border's looking for perscriptive books on web's a quals thing. Of course no trip to Border's would be complete without a tour of the record section. I picked up a new celtic collection Celtic Circle 2, John Mellencamp's Words & Music, and I picked up a copy of the Warren Zevon tribute album Enjoy Every Sandwich: The Songs of Warren Zevon.

I was debating on the Zevon tribute album. I love Zevon, Roland the Headless Thompson Gunnerand Werewolves of London are huge personal favorites. Gotta love both those songs they have such strong visual images created through the text. In a BBC 2 contest listeners voted Werewolves of London Greatest Opening Song Line. I debated on this one because I simply can not envision my enjoying Adam Sandler's rendition of Werewolves of London. Sandler is not someone I find funny...not the SNL stuff, the movies, or the recordings. So I started wandering the instore listening stations looking for a copy of the album so I could hear if Sandler made me violently ill. On the last pop/rock listening station I found Jen Chapin's Linger, under a note identifying her as Harry Chapin's daughter. I never did find a listenting station with the Zevon tribute so I put it down, I may yet buy it but not with this bunch, and added Jen Chapin.

So today I am listening to this album and I'm really enjoying it. It has a nice pop/rock/folk flavor that will work for me in many situations. I love finding something unexpected in the record bins...ok so they are now CD bins and no one has owned a record in a millenium or so. LOL

"Enjoy Every Sandwich: The Songs of Warren Zevon" is well worth it. Adam Sandler's version of "Werewolves in London" is by no means vomit-inducing. Sandler makes no effort to be funny, only to sing the song the way it was meant to be sung. I can understand foregoing an immediate purchase without any background information; however, I highly recommend that everyone, fans and critics of Adam Sandler alike, to buy the tribute album.
