Once and Future Songs

(In this “column” anything goes as long as it has to do with a song.)
Don’t Let Us Get Sick
When I played for my three-year-old grandson recently, he definitely liked the few cover songs I have been learning best, though the Warren Zevon song, Don’t Let Us Get Sick, had a bad word—“stupid.” In spite of this faux pas, afterward he said, “That’s a good song.”
My version of Lyle Lovett’s, “She’s No Lady” also has been well received (not only by my grandson, but by my audiences.)  Another very “audience-friendly” song.  I guess that’s why restaurant performers do well with covers, though I will not do any of the mainstay standards (if I can help it.)  Don’t get me wrong, I firmly believe in covers and plan to add more—as a former choir teacher once said to us, “There is more great music out there than any of us could sing in a lifetime.”  And she was speaking strictly of classical church music.  Boggles the mind.
