Gun Laws Should Be Reasonable, Not Politically Convenient
"Telling you about the difference between The Wall Street Journal editorial and those of the others Washington Post New York Times LA times doesn't matter. Theirs is all about guns. By the way, I am receptive to the idea that guns would be available only when you're 21 years of age. Or at least some restrictions, but there is a problem. It is a constitutional problem. The constitution says that the right to bear arms shall not be infringed. We have people want to pass an amendment, saying that in that case, it's 21, the danger with that, however, is that there is no instance in the history of the left, that they stop, then it's like civil rights, it all began with the completely morally correct law of not discriminating on the basis of race. The idea that human being because of his or her skin color can not stay at a hotel, is obscene.
Delta Joins List of Corporations to Ditch Degree Requirements
"The ongoing enrollment crisis at U.S. college and universities deepened in spring 22. Raising concerns that a fundamental shift is taking place in attitudes toward the value of a college degree. I think that it is. I do think it is and what would really make it clear is if more, look up the delta, I want to make sure it's not united. I think it's delta. I always like to get obviously things accurately. But I think more companies just need to say that. Now, clearly, if you're a mathematician, then a degree in math is probably necessary. Although, even there, I think they should test you for knowledge, not for a degree. What if one of you had a tutor on your own and saved hundreds of thousands of dollars. It's the old way of learning is with a tutor. It's probably the best possible way of learning, after all, didn't teachers unions tell us all of my life, small classes, small classes, can't get smaller than a tutor.

I hope you are reading Kellyanne Conway's here. The deal. She's friends with Frank luntz as I am. So she knows the lunch rule that you've got to save the title of a book 7 times to make the book memorable. So I've said, here's the deal three times Kellyanne. Now I'm going to turn it over to you. I like Kellyanne one stuff. A lot more than Kellyanne two stuff, 'cause I didn't know much of Kellyanne. One stuff, but it's all there and here's the deal. Congratulations. Oh, thank you so much, Hugh. It's been a labor of love to write this memoir. Even though I'm 55, hopefully I have decades of life ahead of me. People are always asking me about the story behind the story. And I think in many ways I've had unique opportunities, crazy wild dramas and traumas, but it's really just everybody's American Dream story raised by a single mom very modestly for Italian women in the household never a political conversation I can recall, but raised to be a conservative because they were all hardworking small business owners believed in faith and family and freedom. We had military and veterans in our family union members in our family, obviously. So it's been a great journey. And you've been a part of that. We started on this radio show in 2000.

"w. said" Discussed on NFL Live
"7 on 7, up through college. If you look at the couple of the last really four drafts in the first and second round, the hit rate on these wide receivers. Their ability to come in the NFL NFL and be impactful from day one is really unprecedented. And then from above field, you know, you alluded to this wide receiver contracts really starting with the Deandre Hopkins extension. Bill barnwell did a great piece on this for ESPN, are of course exploding. So if you're a team with a highly paid quarterback, who you believe can make wide receivers better on his own and you're looking at those price tags and you're looking at the success of these rookie water Sears coming into the NFL, I think it's more likely than ever that you're going to go for one of the younger players. Yeah, but that's why the bills are such a fascinating case study this year because they do have the extremely highly paid quarterback and highly paid wide receiver. Now it's not that you can't do it this way and what a championship we just have never seen it. And it'll be interesting. Here's the reality because once you go into this world, if you're buffalo, every front office, or if buffalo is successful, every front office is going to try to replicate it. I think you got to ask yourself two questions. Do we draft well? And do we develop well? And you got to be honest about that because once you allocate all that money to those two positions, if you don't draft relatively well, your roster is going to be weaker. Or if you draft well and you don't develop your staff doesn't develop well, then your roster is going to at some point feel it. I don't think that because let me be clear, buffalo has a great quarterback. That's why they did it. And Stefan is a great wide receiver. I think the more likely issue will be this, Mina, when organizations have good quarterbacks and they pay him great quarterback money. And they have a good receiver and they pay him a great receiver money. That's when I think that you can really start to get yourself into a problem when it comes to that situation. Yeah, and I think buffalo is unique in another way, which is Josh Allen himself really made the leap when Stefan Diggs joined the bills. I mean, it's not the only reason why he made the leak coaching organization. Josh Allen's efforts himself, of course. But I feel like buffalo simply could not move on from dick, nothing they were even considering doing so because of how closely he is linked to Josh Allen. And of course, the fact that they expect to attend for a Super Bowl this season. Josh Allen made his leap with Stefan. Lamar made his leap with Mark Andrews. Dak Prescott made his leap with Amari Cooper. Patrick Mahomes made his leap with Tyree kill. So all these young quarterbacks or even great quarterbacks are going to need a bona FIDE rockstar wide receiver. Some organizations are going to say, let's pay the proven veteran or let's use pics to get them. And some are going to say, let's take the flyer on this young college kid that we think is a Jamar chase or Justin Jefferson. But if you do the former, which is pay the veteran and you've got the expensive quarterback, you better draft really well and you better develop really well. And if you don't, you're going to have some difficult decisions to make. I've always said though, we don't pay general managers for the easy decisions. We pay them for the difficult ones. And some of these teams that have double dipped a quarterback and wide receiver at the top of the market could have to make some difficult decisions down the line. We always have time for one more thing before we go. And the more Jackson posted about his first round on the golf course over the weekend, he had to say dress code, check. Everything else? Tiger Woods? I need a couple pointers. So we don't have Tiger Woods. We do have our guy Dan Orlovsky at the touch screen Dan. I need partners here for Lamar. So first of all, I'm going to start here at both with the T on the green and that is not a putter. It looks to be a 7 iron. So if the T is used for a ball marker, I'm cool with it. Yeah, I'm cool with it. Let's play fast golf. Let's go. Fair enough. If we're putting the ball on the tee, that's disappointing. Yeah. He's probably good enough with player where he could putt with a actual iron instead of using a putter. But Lamar work on the putter, okay? Keep keep the palm going towards your target. Second thing is this. Field my eye goes to this area right here. This is a little bit of a ridge right here. Lamar, when you see the ridge right there, you got to anticipate that your ball is just going to turn a little bit, right? That the golf ball is just going to turn because I look at where this ball ended up. I'm assuming that's his pole. That's the amateur side. Lamar? You left it beneath the hole. That's great of a football player you are. You've got to play the band of that ridge and put the ball so you can I like the flag in two pace of play is good Lamar. Just call me, hit me up on DM. We'll get you some lessons. All right, coming up on C with SVP tonight. Dan orlowski and Scott van pelt will talk golf for approximately an hour. Back tomorrow. Benjamin.

Picks one, two, and three, when exactly how you thought they would. Taylor McCaffrey Eckler. So now I'm left with a decision. Do I go with my little Cooper copper? Do I go with another, you know, star running back, a Derek Henry, maybe a Dalvin cook. It seems to naji Harris go that high. I decided to go with my little Cooper Cup at four for two reasons. Number one is, as you mentioned, it's the first mock of the season. Kind of wanted to see how my team would turn out if I went wide receiver in the first round. Number two is and this is something we're going to talk about with Cooper Cup throughout this off season, which is he had a monster year, a record breaking year, like literally a record breaking year. And so obviously we expect some regression. He can regress quite a bit and still be worth the number one wide receiver in fantasy football. If you take his ten worst games from last year, it's over 207 fantasy points, which is better than like step on Diggs ten best games from last year. That's moments the matter presented by supercuts.

I want to thank you both for joining us. Jack and michael. it's pleasure. you have a beautiful home. thank you. so you're all about branding. I hear jackie on the radio. All the time on capel and you do a lot for your clients. You also have the blog and the podcast and michael. You're the creative spirit behind all this. When i think of brand i think of maybe a logo like the nike logo like nike. I like new balance. Actually i buy things because they make me feel good. But would you explain jackie. Let's start with you. what is branding. And how can a small business in a small town figure all this out. You know it's more important for small businesses really than big businesses because they have less resources and they have more ground. They have to cover. When we talk about branding. Most people think of it as the logo. The brand identity. The nike swoosh the new balance in be mcdonald's em sometimes people think about it as a type of product a brand of shoes or brand of hamburgers at the end of the day. We use new myers definition from his book. The brand gap. And what he says. And i think so eloquently is that a brand is a person's emotional connection to accompany product or service until it's that emotional connection. It's the reason why you seek out new balance shoes and somebody else seeks out nike shoes and the reason why the willing to pay more because they self identify with that product that makes them feel good. They're proud to wear that label on their body or drive that label or stock their kitchen and so we focus on that emotional connection and how our clients can help build those emotional connections better. Because then you're trapped into trying to be the cheapest choice. You're considered the best choice and people will make decisions based on logical reasons. They make them based on emotional reasons. They use logic to justify their choice on the truth or does that everybody. Everybody has a brand whether they they know it or not and what we talked about a lot is that you aren't in control of that brand and it sounds weird because you own a business or you may on a product and you say i don't own that brand who owns the brands people that buy right in the consumers that the public audience and they are going to choose whether it's successful or not all you can do is provide opportunities for them to like you to connect with you to engage with you and that's by delivering on your promise and what you say you're going to do for them. I'm going to give you a great quality shoes. Make you feel have and great about yourself. Now whether you put those shoes on and run or not that's relevant you can still buy them and still make you feel good about it. You know. it's like tom. You buy a pair of shoes and then it helps somebody else. I mean the. Tom's may not look that. Good on your feet. But you feel like i'm making a difference in the world. I'm just recently. Read a book. And i don't know if this off point but aeko logic by daniel goldman he talks about how the choices we make really do affect the planet and other things but i think people want to feel like we do make a difference and most just about our day not thinking about branding a number of clients industrial clients who have made this transition to a greener way to do their jobs and in the energy space you know. That's a big challenge. But they see that as the future. They're really focused on that. I think most of the generations coming up who were going to have the biggest wallets and the biggest budgets pretty quickly They make a number of their decisions based on a company's corporate approach to making the world a better place especially the younger. I mean the the going that the more that's irrelevant. We have so much research with younger audiences and they make other buying choices based on their own personal beliefs and their core beliefs and and they will run away from something that has nothing to do with what they want. The world just interviewed scott on shell got probably know. He was over department of natural resources daughter. Yeah that's true. Simone african about that scott. His biggest claim to fame by the way is giving birth. This awesome and we need to tell them not to. I do every chance. I get what he was saying. Was young conservatives in particular the up. And coming policymakers really want to see our planet being respected and saved so i can see how messaging of a company would resonate with people that don't just care about this work also destroying the planet as we produce it you know that corporate stewardship and citizenship and desire to make the world a better place really surpasses party affiliation I see it just as much on the left and the right democrats and conservatives republicans and and progressives alike dare is a big push now to fix the planet and to support companies. That are doing something towards that end. It's huge and so when we talk about brand building if if a company doesn't align with a consumers belief system democrat sal products in that comes into the market itself because you may be as a business person you may say. Well i don't believe in that. Or i don't want to do that. Or whatever your audience may believe in that and you decide how you want how you're gonna pay bills. You want to not caterers much too but listen to your audience and give them what they want and what they need. You can resist that you can stand in line and draw line of sand and say well. I'm not doing that. Your choices have consequences and you're gonna have to decide on what you want to do with all that. I don't know if that makes sense minnesota. How do you counsel your clients like. Let's say here in lafayette. you know. i've i've had so many interesting interviews in the past and what was katherine komo talking about. No waste louisiana and talking about restaurants. It's more expensive. many times. To make eco friendly choices like cutler. Yvette won't be plastic and kill the turtles and all that stuff you know. And she's like you have to make a decision. But how do you counsel your clients. Because i'm assuming lafayette's probably not that different from other towns vastly different. Let's talk about that. So eighty percent of our clients are out of market anthony. Oh they're not in lafayette. Eighty percent of our business reuss eighty percent of the people. We do work or marketing. Wise eighty percent of our revenue comes from people who do not have an office in state. Originally yes oh my goodness and has been for years sometimes visit a little lower but we did to hover right around eighty percent mark so we import money into this community because all of our employees or local taxpayers. Lots of employees we do. We're very fortunate. We some great employees but our clients are out of there so we take that money we bring it here. Which i think is a good thing but i will tell you that. In some markets corporate stewardship is the top priority of what consumers care about in some industries and some communities. It's very low priority. Until we use we start with our regime. Branding process talking to clients about who their target audience really is and then we go talk to those people to find out what they really care about. What is their perception of client of the industry of the competition of their own challenges and pain points and then we can message.

"Old friend said to win Obviously arenas hound by from elvis presley. It was originally written a by lebron installer who we love when they were nineteen. Yes but it was written for big mama thornton a blues singer and the changes. The the changes in the lyrics are fairly drastic. The the the melody is is pretty similar. but i have to say that having listened to both of them i the the big mama thornton version a few times now in in trying to and there's a lot that i'll say there's a lot that goes into this not just from a gender perspective but you know but a race perspective is as well but we'll talk about the gender version i so Or so big mama. Thornton in the song is very clear she is singing a hound dog which is a slang word for a for a man who just served please around right And it's clear in the lyrics that he's just you know he doesn't want her he just wants to find a place to hang right and And so it makes sense because the elvis version they stripped that away that that feel of away so it just comes this idea of doing nothing but a hound dog and the question is will. What does that mean when a man sings it. Because it saying you you ain't no friend of mine You never caught a rabbit. And there's you know. Those changes in the lyrics are make make the mic. Sort of no sense in the elvis elvis version. He got from another band that that made an arrangement. Pretty bell and the bellboys. So he's doing the version of he's doing the freddie bell and the bellboys version of the song not big mama thornton's version but the the changes and stripping away the idea that the hound dog is a man who's playing around and just trying to like get a place to hang out with this woman it. It's it's strips that away and sort of makes it it in a way nonsensical Right i mean her. Like from the fifties. Like steve allen or at salvin or something where. He's legitimately singing to a dog. That's right steve. Allen i mean that's that's a bigger that's a bigger conversation. Because that's steve allen being like oh this fad of rock and roll. It is like so that. I mean that's obviously. It is related there but that is a different because i mean cevallos would not do that to a blue singer right. You know what. I mean like if big mama thornton was going to be on our show now i mean. There's a lot of reasons. Maybe she wouldn't be but will tip table that for the moment. But i mean again. That's that's another thing of like. Who singing the song right. What right rock and roll was not genre. The steve allen took seriously right so he made a joke. Whereas i you know he maybe he would have done that to someone else. Also you know. Like if tommy dorsey and his orchestra came on and dog. Maybe right and i mean like you know i which elvis presley is on. I think it's always and that's the one where they won't show his hips right. They only shoot him in the way. Stop everyone. I either terrified of rock and roll or things as a joke a few years later the beatles salvant is the big thing ever. He's not making a joke. This is like a ratings powerhouse rate. So that's another thing too like the genre also makes a big difference and also it was the big mama thornton version. A was a big a big hit but also was seen as like too provocative for for white audience audiences and like the rock and roll sort of audiences which whatever rock and roll. rose at that point right So that's why these things. I mean the the the the first lines of it are. You ain't nothing but a hound dog been snooping around the door and then it says you can wag your tail but i ain't gonna feed you no more so there's like and it goes deeper and deeper talks about is the second versus about The hound dog guy her blue and like you know making her upset. None of that is in the elvis version right. They've stripped it away. So there's much more of a story in the big mama thornton version then in the in the elvis version right and i think the elvis version you know i mean obviously don't know the man's mind but i would assume that you know it. It wasn't like he was like. Oh i'm gonna take this song and like gender flip and it's going to make a statement like i'm sure he was like oh. This is just a good song that someone told me about. It was a big mouth. He he was a fan of big mama thornton. He had her albums so he wasn't even going off her version. He was going off of this other version that a male group had already flipped and rice stripe on the saying like the sexuality the gender of right but i would say was i think just by like if you create something whether you intended or not. You're saying you know what i mean like. I don't think he said it wasn't like the share thing was like i'm going to make a statement with this song but just by the changes that he made and who was singing it right it change it and again. We're not gonna get into this 'cause we can't you know the episode conversation in this a much by your compensation but like you said it's not just a gender thing right. Obviously you know. The criticism of elvis is that he took things black people made and then presented them to a white audience as you know safe because he was a handsome white guy again. We're not gonna go into that now because it's a much bigger conversation. We can't do it but that of course that also changes what the song means in the fact that you know it's a white guy seeing it as opposed to a black woman like that that also changes the meaning of the song and again you know. Her version is so clear that you would. You know a woman would call a cheating man. A hound dog. When elvis says it like well what is that. Like what is he talking. Is he literally talking about a dog. Is he talking about a friend who betrayed him. Is he talking about nothing. Like it's not clear so that changes the you know the meaning so much becomes song dance to and these into song that had changed music for the remainder of time but aside from that right i mean that's the other thing too like when you told us i mean this is not the song itself but again also the popularity of the song rate per per perhaps changes their perception. Because when you told me oh that sounds a cover. It was by with that. I mean. I'll i'll fully admit that i knew the elvis version. Obviously that's the famous version but again just that obviously changes their perception of the song and that that's the version that most people know. So you know it and now finding out that it's a cover colors my perception of the elvis version. I think most importantly yes. Lebron stoler who wrote hound dog. Yes also row pearl's a singer even in the mid eastern even in the minnie's shows up. I think that's important to note. Yes on their minor hits.

"Dance. We'll get into this pronouns. Don't change in the songs or not like saying like this is different because he singing to a man right doing that story for a century. That's right so what's interesting here is so the the opening line is somebody said. You've got a new friend. But does she love you better than i can. There's a big black sky over my town and know where you're at. I bet she's around so the pronouns stay the same And the choruses. I'm in the corner watching you. Kiss her right over here. Why can't you see me. I'm giving it my all. But i'm not the guy you're taking home so it's interesting is in robbins version. She does say. I'm not the guy you're taking home right right It could be because there's a really nice internal lie Rhyme with so essentially right matic right and potentially i mean you know the term guy can be gender neutral right. Yeah you sound like hey guys and you know so potentially maybe that's all it means like you said it rhymes nicely but so i think i think this one right robin but what i was going to say was my trying to drop. But what makes this interesting. I think is that there is a potentially gender fluid thing going on in the first song so now by flipping it. It's like you're just adding to that. Yeah what's what's interesting in. The county gut version is that he doesn't change any of the pronouns. So what it does is add like we said earlier. It's it's an extra layer to the song. Where if he's singing to a man who's leaving him for a woman or he's ing for a woman who's leaving him for a woman right it it it kind of makes you rethink it. It in the rob inverting. You just sort of assume that she seemed to a man who's leaving her for a woman but what the count scott version does is. It almost makes you re examine the robin version. And i think it also. It makes are- examined that it also makes you not reexamined. The character that they're that they're seeing too but it adds more the scott one like you said it adds more ambiguity about the person that that is that is dancing with the other woman and it. Yeah yeah i mean first of all. They're amazing versions. And i do you know with with the robin version. Changing you know having the the kiss her she. And then i'm not the guy you're taking home I think it's just kind of like you know. Hey guys i do think there's a little bit of by robin in it. You know deep able to be able to play round with that but But yeah i think. I think you're right like the callum scott version just takes that another level deeper to be like you know what you know. Who is this person that he is singing too. Yeah it it adds an interesting Extra layer to the story. And what i find it does is. It makes you like i said. Go back to the robin version. Think about that but it also makes you think about your assumption that she would be saying to a man. You'll be seeing to like you. Listen to pop songs and you just sort of assume like you're kind of were trained to think about like this hetero normative perspective on the lyrics and i'll pointing the direction of there's a song By a great big world called Hold each other. And i saw an interview or read an interview with them when they were writing the song. It's a duo to men One straight is one in one is gay When they were writing the song they went back and said well you sing this verse with any real authenticity. So they changed it to be like like the one of them who's gay singing to a man right and they said like you don't care pop songs like that now. I think you're right. I mean we've spoken about this a couple of times and where we'll be talking about. And we use the words presumably. Because of i think you're exactly right like those the that in pop music. There's this like presumption of like hetero normative culture and so you know to have a song that that sort of flips that on its on. Its head is refreshing. I think and also Rice really interesting. Yes and i mean. I often say presumably for that reason as well. But also i'm a big believer in like if you hear the account scott version and you think he's going into a woman or if you hear that version you think man you're both right gets whatever like whatever your interpretation is like. It's because it's what it means to you. So i'm not gonna say presumably only because i'm not gonna tell anyone this is you know definitely what it is right it. It's i'm a big believer in you. Know what they call death the author like whatever you interpret it as being what it is for you right. It doesn't matter naturally what the author intended or someone else might get out of it. You get out of it. That's what's important. Yeah all right. I actually have a bunch more to say about that. But we're trying to keep this short so dancing on this is not the last. You've heard of dancing on my own. This is my good at tone episode. Alright so original. What's your your last song. I.

"And they did it as sort of like a slow kind of folk Maybe not folks the right word but it's like an acoustic guitar version of it. Didn't really change the yeah. They didn't really change lyrics. That you know. There's a part where she says like boy. You're driving me blind. Whatever and they change the girl but otherwise you know it's exactly the same thing. Now the reason why. I think this is interesting is not only. The gender flipped aspect of it is definitely a big part of it but it is interesting that you know what when a thirty five year old man says something verses when a sixteen year old girl says to of including like when i you know sort of a slow down version of thirty thirty five year old man saying the reason i breathe is you. Yeah starts to get creepy. I mean the founder wayne version was intended. But i mean it's basically is about a stalker because a lot of the language is super weird again when a sixteen year. Old girl says that you're like well. You know kids are gonna pop and under a pop melody right. You know exactly right so the way the song is performed and also who's saying it and who's singing. It really changes the meaning without changing the lyrics. Almost at all right all the lyrics are the same but you know him saying like my loneliness is killing me. I must confess. I still believe went on that with you. I lose my mind. Give me a sign that sounds like about a person who's going crazy and is potentially a crazy stocker. Where again a sixteen year. Old girl is like kids. She'll forget about it next week. Dramatic whatever you know what i mean but like it's funny. How reading those lyrics on the page here and hearing the fountains of wayne version. The fact that i heard that britney spears version of thousand times and never thought about how crazy that languages yeah right actually cast the britney spears version a different light like maybe. She's not just a crazy kid. Maybe there is you know. Maybe there's more going on here than than you initially think. Just when you hear the song right. Yeah i mean i think i think just in the like you said the slowing down and you can focus on these on the lyrics and like you said. There's no there's no real big change except for the pronoun change but in just it's in the singing and in who is singing. It just changes the the weight of it. I guess or not the weight or the what feels like the intention behind it you know and it does make you question the every version. That's come before. And i think a lot of these are are like are are like that where you listen to one version that you may not have known whether it be the first one in the second one or whatever and you have to question everything about what the meaning so much of this though is is in the instrumentation as opposed like it's not necessarily a gender thing in this situation it's more the instrumentation also to your point then the who the singer is versus the gender of the singer. It's it's the age of the singer. Yes and again. I think the i think the gender is part of it. But yes like the you know again. The fact that this is now adult. Who's saying it as opposed to a teenager. Yeah right Because i think potentially like teenage boy could also sing lyrics like this and it wouldn't seem as weird because it sort of write it off as like. Oh crazy kids it. It gets darker right. Yeah again because you know like saying something. Like the reason i breathe. Is you like that. Can be really sweet or it can be like you know. We broke up six months ago. Lake you gotta let it go twenty years right away. Inversion is is is more so all right michael. You're next sound okay. So my next song is i. Think a favorite on this podcast. It's dancing on my own by The original version by robin and Cover version by callan. Scott.

"The most interesting part of it is everybody. If you don't know the song i don't know how what what to do with you song But there is a part in it. where she says yes and i ain't saying you ain't pretty all i'm saying is i'm not ready for any person place or thing to try and pull the reins in on me so the song itself is about Person or originally a man who didn't wanna settle down right. One person wanted to settle down. The other person didn't When you leaving just that one word pretty in there and the way that linda ronstadt sings it. There's something about it. That really makes it interesting. It's always stood out to me. You know even. I was younger. And you hear the song you're like it's interesting that she saying i ain't saying you ain't pretty but it really has a you know a different way to it than if it's just a man especially you know like a bluegrass. It's a little lighter in the bluegrass version in nineteen sixty seven. Yes right again right. I think the original version is again very straightforward. Where it's like. I'm a free. Spirit man your you know you're a woman your entire value is by your looks so look. I'm not saying that you're not pretty he goes. I want you to think the reason why. I'm leaving is because you're ugly. You're certainly pretty. But i'm just not ready to be tied down right. Which in that. Time like in terms of like thoughts towards gender like. That's perfectly okay. Like he's he's being a man. Oh yeah yeah yes exactly like. I don't think any you know. Certainly i mean i think this goes back to the james brown to. He's saying this is right right. It's a man's world as it should be but don't forget to also have a woman in your life and have loved whereas i think shares version is like is this the way things are supposed to be is lights. A man man man gave us the right man gave us the car but is that a good thing like in the original version was accepted like yes of course all of this is great right so i think that's the say saying here we're like originally you know you're supposed to accept that. Yes this is the way things are supposed to be by a woman singing it first of all. It just adds such an interesting element of a woman. Saying i don't wanna be tied down right because that was. That was the stereotype of the women's jobs. Trying to catch the man right trying to trying to pull them in. You know making settled down so her. Saying i don't want to be tied down in and of itself is interesting but then her head in nineteen sixty like what. You're not tied down. You're not married. You're you're rightly. There's era spinster. You're an old maid. But then her saying i you know presumably a man. I ain't saying you ain't pretty right. I'm the saying on the ready like that. It's like what is this relationship it just it really opens up a lot of questions me so interesting like you know like is what is that. What is that guy thinking when she said right. I say you pretty can because again traditionally. I'm not saying this. Though it should be but traditionally a man you know is not his worth is not in his looks right at least not totally. It's in what he he does right out in the world so her being like. Is this guy like imbo lightning. I mean it could also sort of be read into like almost like almost like like as a as a dig to him. You know like sort of like to throw it back on the man and be like you know right yeah. There's something so dismissive about it. That's right Which you which is by its very nature empowering to her. Yes as the saint like where you are so pretty. But i'm just not ready for this. Yeah you know there's in one thousand nine hundred sixty seven there's there's an empowerment in that to to sort of flip those expectations and just as like a button on this Linda ronstadt sort of lived that you know. She had relationships for years but she she never got married. She never settled down and had a very fulfilling life so she She did have a different drum and as always podcast comes down to mike. Nasmyth and linda ronstadt. Hey that's right. This is where they come together. That's right yeah. I mean if we had a any sense. This would be like our series finale because this is basically every everything we're interested in as come together but other tying up all the loose. I mean if if they ever did an interview together on like dick cabinet or dinosaur like that would be perfection. They showed up on laffin. We'll do it with holograms all right. So my mind. That song is the band wayne. Did a.

"For several reasons like the song chain definitely changes When it's a man singing this is a man's world right. I mean the lyrics are. This is a man's world but it would be nothing without a woman or a girl and it definitely changes when you have a male singer singing it in nineteen sixty six versus a female singer specifically share. It helps that its share. we share. Who who who is You know kind of feminist icon bomb and and strong independent like like sort of it. Her hurting this in the mid nineties is sort of almost and i ll flipping it. It's sort of a counter. Right what james brown is saying. That as i was saying just just by her singing it right without even changing the lyrics and you can tell us second if you change but even without changing the lyrics just by her singing it. It's almost a repudiation of the original song without changing any because when he says it right when he's singing it i think he's literally saying it is a man's world but don't forget to you know to have a woman in your life as well like don't just live. You know like that life you need. You need love as well. Whereas i think she saying you think it's a man's world right or it's exclusively a man's world and you're living in know you're you're you're approaching it that way and you're living in your little man's world now she's putting it in quotes right. You're living in a man's world but don't you know don't let me go like don't don't forget i'm half of this. You know what i mean. So just again just by her singing it who singing it and when it's being sung it's almost like an answer to that without even changing the lyrics and even the orchestration that they do for the share version. There's a different feel. There's a very different feel to it. there i think also. Yeah i agree that i think there is an idea of like. This is an impairment. Like don't don't forget it would be nothing without women This is also off of an album. We should say because. I do think it's important for this conversation off an album that shared did of all Covers by all male artists right mostly mostly or a good percentage of them. Yeah is this when you walk in memphis off. Yes so yeah. And i think she covers like danica too so she was exploring at this time. Like what those what those you know Sort of stereotypes and what those archetypes were like so to do a james brown song james brown of course and one of his most famous songs i think alone was a statement for share to do right. She was doing it just because like i'm going to cover this song. She chose this song specifically to make the statement of zaman's world but it would be nothing without a woman or a girl like it's you know it's not just a nice little sentiment like she was making a statement with this and with the album And even the album cover which is an amazing album. Cover if you've never seen it. It's share with a snake wrapped around her arm holding an apple subtle. Yeah it's one of the coolest album covers i've ever seen and it's it's almost a shame that it came out in nineteen ninety-five When albums came out like at that point exclusively on cd and cassette like because on a on a twelve inch cover like on a on a vinyl album cover. That would've been a ribbon so cool to see in record stores. Tiny cd cover But yeah and to your point. She does not change the lyrics. There are a couple of things that do change in the the opening verse. James brown says. And it's almost like an aside but it does make a difference. He says you see. Men made the car to take us over the road. Share doesn't put in the uc so like share stating like. This happened. this happened. This happened whereas james brown is almost like a little bit. Yeah yeah he's like declaring it and share saying like okay so man the car. Yeah but right. The end of the song ends with james brown saying he's lost in the wilderness. He's lost in the bitterness and it sort of fades out from there. Yes share things. That and the music goes on and she repeats. He's lost he's lost in the wilderness and then just ends with her saying he's lost so i think there's i don't know there. There's it's definitely much more empowering from shares perspective and should also be noted that Several years later share recorded a song called women's world and she was featured in the in the A woman's world to the same the chorus is tell the truth. This is a women's world so right yeah and it is also. I think important to note that the song was written by james brown and betty. Jean newsome that's a whole other level right. Yeah like you know. Maybe she said you'd better put. It won't be nothing without or i walk notes. Man's it also should be noted that the title is a parody of movie. But the movie was wayne's world there's a there's a grain of salt that you should take it all with all right. Rachel was her for song. My song is a different drum which was made most famous by linda ronstadt in the stone ponies but originally was it was written by mike nasmyth and of who is always always and it was originally released by a bluegrass.

"The reason why i picked it is traditionally. It was about a woman although there are versions again. because there's a million diverge. Their average is about a man before the animals did it but drizzly is about a woman because house of the rising sun is a was the word of a brothel. Yeah a house of ill repute traditionally when it says you know i. I got trapped in the house of the rising sun you know. Tell your children not to do what i have done. It was pretty clear that she had become a prostitute. Writing was and was now trapped here in the house devising son when a man singh that and he's like. Tell your children not to do what i have done. I live a life of misery in the house of the rising sun. It's kind of like what happened. What brought avenue to him. Like just by changing that gender really kinda changes the song and adds kind of a layer of mystery to it because now it's not so clear what happened to sure. Yeah i think that's true. There's no. I mean it in the versions. That i've heard sung by a woman it is. It's fairly straightforward that. She didn't want to go into this business and she found herself You know sort of falling into this This house of ill repute but when the when the animals sing it. You're listening to it and trying to figure out what what was it. Did he fall in love with a woman there and then you know it didn't work out because of this. Was it that something terrible happened on a specific night. You there's no there's nothing to specifically grasp onto Aside from the fact that he he talks about going back to new orleans to where that volunteer lakey like. he's constantly pulled back to it. He can't get out of whatever life they're living in new orleans. The animals version is about a gambler. He talks about how right. Oh gambler and that again is only happy when he's on a streak or whatever so and presumably that's out there but i think he's also a gambler. I believe anyway it's again. The lyrics are not totally clear. But i think that's why you are to assume that and again presumably there be gambling in abroad thermal not its main tourist revenue or reason for existing but certainly it would be happening in there but so so clearly something happened. He lost all his money. Whatever maybe he's like into like indentured servitude in in in the house rising sign or whatever but again the fact that we don't know for sure when he says i came to my ruin and how's the rising sun like we don't know maybe he killed someone you know and now iran like there's it's not clear so again by just by clipping that gender because again if a woman says it will be pretty. Assume that she's a prostitute and now she's in the house excite but when a man by just by flipping that again. You always loved the question of like well what happened. We don't know so that was why. That's why that's my first choice. Yeah also heard that. There was something in the animals version about like drugs and alcohol as well do that that that was one of the things. He was sort of trapped in in my house. Sons so yeah to your point there. There's a little bit more mystery. And they don't really get into what keeps him spending his life in sin and misery right exactly. Yeah all right. So let's move on to michael. What was your first choice. Well dan my first. My first choice is it's a man's man's man's world it's been covered a billion times but The original is by james brown. And i think one of the more famous.

"Everybody welcome back to the story song podcast. I'm dan mcnerney. I'm rachel oakes. This is a special mini sewed that were doing and We're going to have these many shows. We're going to have like a premise that we're going to run through and discuss and we're gonna keep it kinda contained and titan. Have one idea they're going to explore here but for these many codes so we had done a couple of them This summer we wanted to bring back the concept. Because we like doing it. And i think for these mini show to see what you guys think of this. Basically my thesis that every song is telling a story right even if it's not strictly a story song right and we're pretty loosey-goosey about the term story song here at the story passed. I don't know every loosey-goosey say we you know as we're like as long as you know because people will be like it's gotta be like tonight the lights on georgia it's gotta be like getting middle or end like there has to be murderer exactly but you know so so but i i would say our. Our premise here is that every song is telling a story in terms of you know what it's what is trying to say right so maybe it's not like a traditional story. It could be more like poetic or whatever but even a song like we have discussed off. Mike like smells like teen spirit. Write the lyrics are nonsense. But it's still telling you something right about the you know what i thought about. Spirit the deodorant about you know whatever the way. He saw life his generation. Whatever it is so so. That's our thing and then the other thing about a song is that outside of the lyrics is what is what's around it the way the song is presented is also telling a story including who is singing it right which watch the segue. And that's what many showed is about is gender flipped covers so a cover song was sung by a man and a woman covers it or vice versa. And what does that mean. How does that change the story. How does that change what. The song is saying when you do that now. This is our premises. Gender gender flip covers. That are more interesting than the original earliest interesting. Right gives a kind of an interesting flavor by flipping it. Listen it's subjective. This is our feelings. Oh we're not saying that one is better than the other. I think that's the point. I think that in the actual in the just in the idea of who is singing the song could be something that was not that that doesn't happen in the first version of the song by by changing. Who's singing the song. It adds different different layers to the song. It adds a different perspective to the story. It doesn't mean that one version is better than the other right exactly. Yes exactly hey much. Yeah and like i said goes back to that premise. Of what is the song saying with its presentation and that by you know by having a different kind of person singing it.
