    I would bet a lot of this post’s theme that I’ve listened to more Pet Shop Boys than any of you.

    I might be able to out-beta-male you.Report

        I’m partial to “Egads, he got enough styles to start three fads”.

        You just don’t hear “Egads!” enough (has he ever worked in “gadzooks!” or “Heavens to Murgatroyd!”?)Report

    Townes was indeed a god.

    How about Aloe Blacc?

      You know, when I first moved to Austin I’d only really heard of Townes. Then I’d go to see these old Austin country guys at holes in the wall (including one actually called The Hole in the Wall), and it seemed like each and every one of them would tell a story about Townes, something he’d done at a show, or on the road, or whatever, and I was like, “Damn, this dude must be special.” So I had to listen, and I quickly saw why they all loved him so much. “To Live is To Fly” is one of my favorite songs in any genre, but even without it, that dude was an amazing songwriter.

      Also, Aloe Blacc is awesome.Report
