Doctor My Eyes

Jackson Browne is one of the artists I listen to when I have to think. He reminds me of being a little girl and riding a dark highway; his accompaniment the VW engine backed by tires against concrete, the beat kept by the wipers moving back and forth; the percussion was the rain, the streetlights announced another sleeping town and that mournful, powerful piano he played rolled us through the blinking lights and on into the night.

I will be purchasing the acoustic compilation released earlier this month and travel the once enigmatic highway of my memories.

Since reading your post I could not get Running On Empty out of my head, so I bought "The Very Best Of Jackson Browne" (32 songs) on Saturday. I cleanded house to it this weekend.

My 20 year old asked me if it was Jack Johnson.

Jack Johnson "Flake" video. Click the play button. I saw him at the N.O. Jazz Fest this spring. Fun to watch. http://www.jackjohnsonmusic.com/musicPopup.asp?songId=20&songRank=05

I really like Jack Johnson, too :D Sexy Plexi is one of my favorites. I first heard him while waiting at the dollar theater. The college students that ran the place had just gotten his newly released album and were playing it in the lobby. I think I may have even blogged about it (?).

I have Running on Empty and The Pretender on iTunes and in my mini. I love his music. I found an old post from last fall that mentions a few of my favorite things and Jackson Browne is on it. I am consistent in at least a few things.
