Amelia’s missing..

Today’s obsession: Amelia’s Missing by Jon McLaughlin

I can’t find Crazy Horse, can’t find Hoffa
And Amelia’s missing somewhere out at sea
And I hope they’re happy, havin’ a party
And Elvis is servin’ them up green apple martini’s

I can’t find my watch
I can’t find my wallet
So how in the hell am I supposed to find?

The one that I love
The one that I need
Hidden so high
Buried so deep

Well, I found odd jobs and I found reasons
For all kinds of ways I can waste my time
And I found letters and I found leavers
And I found new ways just to tell old lies

I can’t find my watch
I can’t find my wallet
So how in the hell am I supposed to find?

The one that I love
The one that I need
Hidden so high
Buried so deep

Somewhere to run
Somewhere to go
And if I ever find her,
How will i know? How will I know?

‘Cause can’t find Crazy Horse, can’t find Hoffa
And Amelia’s missing somewhere out at sea

Just a beautiful song…

  1. Wow, what lovely lyrics and great live performance. I haven’t given him a listen yet. Is he as good recorded? Off to check him out. Thanks Iag! Isn’t it great to find a new musician to obsess over?

  2. Downloading to watch later. LOVED the JM video two posts back. For some reason can’t get it to download now. Weird…. I’m pretty overloaded on new music these past few days. Will have to process all this later. LOL Did get the free album from Big Head Todd web site.

    Do you all like vimeo? I have trouble with it. Videos are constantly stopping and starting. Got one Jazz Fest vid uploaded but now I’m considering putting them on YouTube instead….

    You and I have things in common. He’s shiny. Just not my kind of shiny. ha. It’s a nice lyrically presented piece. Maybe if the audio was better. Seriously we do have much in common. It’s why I like you, Grey.

  4. spinshack Says:

    I guess if we were out and about and doing bad girl things we’d attach to similar guys but not the same guys so we’d be fine. *chuckle*

  5. Spence Nicholson Tweet: That’s a wrap on Taylor Hicks “Seven Mile Breakdown” most amazing, smoothest shoot of my life.

  6. He’s interesting . . but am too tired to know what I think . . other than wish the person recording hadn’t been so near the drummer !

  7. spinshack Says:

    Yeah me too, AH.

  8. jerseyirish Says:

    Very nice song, but the drums were overwhelming, kind of took from him singing.

    JI

  9. Maybe Mia Farrow has it all right… Maybe the SP should hunger strike until Mr. Hicks gets radio play. *ponders* 😉

  10. Hey if we all did the hunger strike thing, then they couldn’t call us old and Fat anymore!!!! They would just have to stick with OLD.

    I first found JM when he opened for Jonny Lang in concert. He is really good live. I went out the next day and bought his cd. I also like Beautiful Disaster on the same cd. Actually there are several songs on that cd that are pretty good.

    My new favorite lyrics! I am such a sucker for the lyrics….and the piano.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Haahaahaa, you kill me YKM! There are sooo many ways I could run with that statement, but today, for once, I am going to show some restraint. It’s killing me….. but NO, I’m not gonna touch that one :=)

    It’d be a win win for me.

  14. Turns out the production company for the SMB video that was shot yesterday is Red Van Pitures. Stephen Gottlieb is the producer. Also turns out Gottlieb does the AI Ford commercials.

    http://www.redvanpictures.com/

    Soooo. He’s accustomed to short turnaround time in doing music videos. He’s accustomed to working with AI. Can’t help wondering if this video could possibly be available for use as backdrop as early as tomorrow night. Probably not likely, but….

  15. Ooooh, backdrop video…….great idea! If only…….

  16. Loved the Jon McLaughlin video too! Thanks for sharing IAG.
    Looks like he can’t find the “h” in Jon, too. LOL

  17. jerseyirish Says:

    A picture of Taylor in an old corvette from the video shoot yesterday.

    JI

  18. spinshack Says:

    Love that car, good find JI.

  19. hicksaholic Says:

    Robin
    That WOULd be a great way to get some traction going for the video. Probably unlikely but it would especially be great if Taylor doesn’t have the band with him.

  20. hicksaholic Says:

    I was hoping for the old conversion van and a lot of dusty roads. Looks like it will be a little higher end.

  21. I don’t see how Robin. I don’t know when they shoot the commercials but I would bet it’s more than 2 days before they air them. He could basically have a whole week, and I’m always surprised they get them out that fast. It would be cool though…

    Looking forward to seeing Taylor driving that red corvette.

  22. FYI:
    American Idol won’t be interrupted by Obama’s 100 day speech on Wednesday.

    …and I LOVE that Corvette, Jersey. Looking forward to seeing the video in completion!

  23. Can’t watch the McLaughlin video at work, but will look forward to it. Enjoyed the one a few threads down.

  24. Oooo..I like that song. (Ameilia’s missing) Love his voice.

  25. casualfan Says:

    Hope he had his DL with him. I hear he’s always leaving his DL in his jeans and washing it. The man’s a regular fixture at the DMV in B’ham.

  26. Well, at least he washes his jeans. That’s a plus. 😆 I can’t believe Bill’s not checking the pockets before he throws them in the laundry.

  27. jerseyirish Says:

    cf, Do that to my son all the time, wash his wallet. When he was six, I was checking his pant pockets and the damn things talked to me, he had a frog in his pocket, toally freaked me out. From that time on, told him if you don’t get it out it gets washed will not check his pockets.

  28. OT. That fool Simon told TV Guide which came out today that Taylor Hicks never was and never will be a star. Something is wrong with Simon for continuing to put down Taylor. It is just nasty to keep bringing up Taylor in such a negative way.

  29. jerseyirish Says:

    Rosie, That is just terrible, the man is just plain nasty. He jabs at Taylor every chance he gets, now I wonder how tomorrow will go, if he will say something negative to Taylor.

    JI

  30. Wow, what a f’ing jerk! There was no call for that. The man is about to perform on his show and he says that? He must have something against him. Taylor got on his bad side somehow.

  31. JumpedtheShark Says:

    I really enjoyed this. Nice change of pace. However, this thread still ended up talking about Taylor lol.

    Thanks IAG for sending over all the cool music. Keep it coming! 🙂

  32. Great song, drums are a little overwhelming but it’s good!

    OT. That fool Simon told TV Guide which came out today that Taylor Hicks never was and never will be a star. Something is wrong with Simon for continuing to put down Taylor. It is just nasty to keep bringing up Taylor in such a negative way.

    Yeah I read the actual thing.
    What a self-righteous little tool. Simon only cares about the money, not the talent.
    Anyone here hoping that Taylor jumps on the table and kicks his face? Lol

  33. casualfan Says:

    Simon is entitled to his opinion just like the rest of us. But he should have shown a little tact and not made that a public comment. That’s too bad.

  34. Wow, check out this picture! It about did me in. Got me over shithead’s remark.. 🙂

  35. JTS, are we not supposed to talk about Taylor here when other music is posted? It is his picture at the top of the page after all. LOL Just teasing! I appreciate being exposed to other stuff here. I’m not always wild about it, but some of it I am. I thought the other JM video (Beautiful Disaster) was a lot more exciting than this one. My 17 yo heard me listening to it and and asked me who it was. She liked it too. A LOT.

  36. “Simon is entitled to his opinion just like the rest of us. But he should have shown a little tact and not made that a public comment. That’s too bad.”

    Of course he is but his timing, and yes, his tact really suck!

  37. jerseyirish Says:

    I agree Simon is entitled to his opinion also, but it is these direct hits against Taylor that really set me off. He sits there on that show with that smug look like he is the only one whose opinion counts, really annoying. Taylor the gentleman that he is never disses him or the show. I’m sure there is a lot of colorful language behind the scenes of Taylor’s opinion of Simon.

  38. “Simon is entitled to his opinion just like the rest of us. But he should have shown a little tact and not made that a public comment. That’s too bad.”

    Of course he is but his timing, and yes, his tact really suck!

    But, ironically enough, he always manages to get Mr. Hicks back in the public’s thoughts and conversations, doesn’t he? So, is any buzz better than no buzz?

  39. The Dead is in town tonight which made me think of the previous topic about guitar riffs not being relevant. One of my favorite bands is Wilco. They’re quite respected and CURRENT! Listen to their lead guitarist Nels Cline RIP it up here on Impossible Germany. Warning: Lower your speakers! Their latest album, Sky Blue Sky, is incredible. Also check out Jesus, Etc. from Yankee Hotel Foxtrot. The guitar solo lives on!!!!

  40. OK, breaking newsflash – there is a competition tonight on a a country music radio show pitting James Otto against Taylor Hicks. Otto knocked two people out and this is his third challenge. Thinking they are going to play SMB! (Otto was recently nominated for a grammy for song-writing.) The program is GAC Nights and these are called “Nights Fights.” I think they are playing the songs at 9 Central. I hope these links are where you can listen.

    This was all picked up on the GAC Twitter page. Scroll down to see how to vote…

  41. The voting starts at 9:10 I think.

  42. Simon can suck it.

  43. jerseyirish Says:

    CAryl, Agree Simon does suck, big time!!!

    JI

  44. They asked for people to call and say whether you think Taylor Hicks should be played on country radio. I called and said he had several great country songs on his new CD and I would love to hear them played on the radio. They should play SMB at 9 central. They might play the other guys song first. Listen here:

    http://www.975ycountry.com/ or maybe
    http://radiotime.com/station/s_35140/KRST_923.aspx

    Then vote at 1-866-942-4221

    Sorry IAG, I hope you don’t mind. I think it would be great for Taylor to beat the other guy. I’m actually enjoying listening to the country station waiting.

  45. Its on. They are playing James Otto first. He’s good.

  46. Playing SMB now!

  47. He won! He’ll be challenged tomorrow night. Some are saying the song was remixed a bit for the country station. It really did sound good. It ended a bit sooner and more abruptly I think.

  48. Badfantoo Says:

    They added more fiddle and piano. Made it a bit more country. Sounded really good on the radio.

  49. Lonely here tonight….

  50. Yup momo, you are right! I regret not seeing Wilco. Finally just had the chance to watch that video of Impossible Germany. And another one too. Awesome band! Too bad we could not be in two places at once. I checked their web site last night and saw I won’t have another chance to see them for as far I as I can see. Not coming anywhere near here and will be out of the country a lot. Too bad….. very sad. 😦

    Taylor is alot tougher than most give him credit for and he takes Simon as water off a ducks back. Yes, I’m sure it stings and I have no doubt that he has his own opinion of Simon but Simon is Simon and that won’t change.
