Rosanne Cash, Elvis Costello, Kris Kristofferson – April 5th

You want love
But it’s never deep enough
You want life
But it’s never long enough
You want peace
Like it’s something you can buy
You want time
But you’re content to watch it fly

Halfway through the recording of her mighty 2006 album Black Cadillac, Rosanne Cash had written down some lyrics and tinkered with the beginnings of what would become this weeks’ Top Tune. Over time, she and her co-writer/producer-husband John (Leventhal) would streamline it both musically and lyrically. One day they got the spark to invite two special friends to contribute verse’s of their own. One (Kris) who Cash had known since childhood and one (Elvis) with whom she had recently co-written “Song With Rose” for his album, Momofuku.

Rosanne’s first verse beautifully set the tone and then the baton was masterfully handed off to Elvis and then to Kris. When they all finally found eight hours in a studio together, magic flowed. You can watch a great live performance of the song HERE.

Rosemary Clooney – The Rules of the Road

Thanks for Nothing was Rosemary Clooney‘s only album recorded for Frank Sinatra’s Reprise Records and the last full-length lp she recorded until 1977. Arguably considered the last of her great albums, this 1964 work was arranged by Bob Thompson (Duane Eddy, Van Dyke Parks, Phil Ochs) and doesn’t pull a lot of punches lyrically.

The stresses of her personal life at the time are said to be audible on many of the tracks. Her masterful delivery on the brilliant Cy Coleman/Carolyn Leigh song “The Rules of the Road” just one clear example. Our favorite characters might miss a bend in the road or two but will keep on driving. That’s how it goes, you live and you learn the rules of the road.
