Song Notes: Jeff Bridges... I Don't Need No Jeff Bridges To Put Music To My Poem!: Some folks know Laura Cantrell as the woman who sang the Lion parts on "The Guitar" by They Might Be Giants. Others might know her as the DJ on WFMU who does Radio Thrift Shop. But she's got a couple albums out and has even performed at the Grand Ole Opry; how cool is THAT? Laura Cantrell's actually pretty big in the UK, and she even toured opening for Elvis Costello. Her music is older-style country; she kind of reminds me a little bit of Patsy Cline. Not a whole lot, but just a little bit. This is from her second album, When The Roses Bloom Again. I tend to prefer her first, Not The Tremblin' Kind, but both albums are exquisite and worth the purchase. And they've just released her Hello CD of the Month Club EP to stores, so check that out too; that one's recorded to sound much older. Some of the songs on that could pass for a lost EP from 1960 on some obscure Nashville label. - Rev. Syung Myung Me
