Whenever I get fed up with the Cahokia forum and people talking about the death of other peoples mothers or children I just go to a different time when people weren't so hateful.

Being an older person that likes You Tube for the music, that's where I go. There is so much good music and it takes you back to another era and I can escape the garbage that is on the forums now and feel good after listening to the music.

I go to sleep at night peacefully with all the music running through my head!

Did you ever turn Rose's oxygen off yet, Richard? Seems pretty hateful of you, especially being an older person and all.

I like some of the old country and western music. Patsy Cline, Hank Williams, And Loretta Lynn. Patsy Cline could really sing "Sweet Dreams".

Yeah, that's right - did you ever get around to turning Rose's oxygen tank off, Trucker?

I remember sitting in the floor watchimg the Grand Old Opray at home. My parents were big country music fans. I remember going to the Restaurant next to the old Cahokia Lounge and my mom and dad would have to go next door and dance a few dances to the jukebox before we left. When my mom would clean at home she would sometimes listen to those old 33 records while she cleaned. My favorite song was Blusberry Hill.

Those old 33 records are antique collectables now. You can buy the antique victrollos but they are expensive. We had one when I was a kid.Big floor model with the record player at the top. I have a Elvis record still in the cardboard sleeve with his picture on the front. It was my moms.

I like a lot of the old music and you can find it on You Tube. A lot of that was music my grandparents listened to in their day.
My grandfather thought that Bing Crosby was the best singer ever and he was excellent, just like the big bands, ragtime and so much other music.
One of my all time favorites is Jimmey Durante. I really get a kick out of watching his videos and he sang with all the greats even into the mid sixty's.
I love music!

Tobacco Road is a good song about csome of the Cahokia types

I was born in a trunk.
Mama died and my daddy got drunk.
Left me here to die alone
In the middle of Tobacco Road.

Growin' up rusty shack,
All I had was hangin' on my back.
Only you know how I loathe
This place called Tobacco Road.

But it's home, the only life I ever known.
Only you know how I loathe Tobacco Road.
