A viking ship appears on the horizon, a likeness of Loretta Lynn carved into its bow. Rare birds flock together to sing Francoise Hardy as soul hits. A sunset of blips and bleeps fills the air.

  Thu. 8/30/07 9:46am I'm Troubled:

I'm troubled, I'm troubled
I'm troubled in mind
If trouble don't kill me
Lord I'll live a long time

Courting is pleasure
And parting is grief
But a false hearted lover
Is worse than a thief

For a thief will just rob you
And take what you crave
But a false hearted lover
Will lead you to the grave

I'm troubled, I'm troubled
I'm troubled in mind
If trouble don't kill me
Lord I'll live a long time

And the grave will decay you
And turn you to dust
Not one girl in a hundred
That a poor boy can trust

They'll hug and kiss you
And tell you more lies
Than the cross ties on a railroad
Or the stars in the sky

I'm troubled, I'm troubled
I'm troubled in mind
If trouble don't kill me
Lord I'll live a long time

I'm going to Georgia
I'm going to Rome
I'm going to Georgia
Gonna make it my home

I'm gonna build me a cabin
On the mountain so high
So the world bird and the turtle dove
Will hear my sad cry

I'm troubled, I'm troubled
I'm troubled in mind
If trouble don't kill me
Lord I'll live a long time
  Thu. 8/30/07 9:51am Doug:

Patrick! Hey man! I was just thinking about you 'cause I met another person with your same first and last name. How's Buffalo? Send me a proper e-mail sometime.
  Thu. 8/30/07 9:53am seanh:

this new animal collective release is a pleasant departure from their now familiar spazz folk, no? It's more palatable, and songlike, especially in comparison to Sung Tongs. It was a hard swallow the first time I gave it a listen, but I'm really digging it now. tanks for playing it!!!1
  Thu. 8/30/07 10:03am jim:

cubicle in mid-town, holla!
  Thu. 8/30/07 10:04am JB:

greetings! .. 91.1 FM- clean "mono" in Lyndhurst, NJ
  Thu. 8/30/07 10:06am pat:

..from Washington, DC. Hi Pamela, don't know you but glad there are SOME intelligent people here.
  Thu. 8/30/07 10:06am 55 Fingers:

Are we to expect longwinded Pynchonesque verse in these posts now? Oh no. BTW NBC Mystery Movie theme from Best of Mancini v.3 is right up there w/Charlie's and NBC Nightly News theme. Thanks Hank
  Thu. 8/30/07 10:07am raga:

this is building up to a cut from the new M.I.A., i just know it...
  Thu. 8/30/07 10:10am nh_dave:

Greetings from Woburn MA. Stuck in the office when I should be out in the woods at home in NH :)
  Thu. 8/30/07 10:15am raga:

hah! see?! i must be psycho. psychic, i mean.
  Thu. 8/30/07 10:15am RR:

Pat & Pam-- Glad to know I'm not alone here in DC!
Trouble-- as always, thank you...
  Thu. 8/30/07 10:16am pat:

the M.I.A tune that samples Straight to Hell: I don't know whether I love it or I hate it. Seems like sacred ground no one should touch...
  Thu. 8/30/07 10:24am raga:

pat: i see your point but i happen to think that's the best track on there.
  Thu. 8/30/07 10:28am holland oats:

animal collective/beach boys connection? more of a simon & garfunkel connection imho! then again, i think the yeah yeah yeahs sound like billy idol...
  Thu. 8/30/07 10:28am jeferey:

That Animal Collective cut also makes the XTC connection clearer.
  Thu. 8/30/07 10:28am pat:

right on Trouble! Screw the NRA and the Bush Admin!
  Thu. 8/30/07 10:33am pat:

yeah, it's good but M.I.A. can come up with some pretty wicked stuff without building the entire song on some one else's...but that gets us into a whole diff argument..I just think there are lines that shouldn't be crossed sometimes. shouldn't mess w/ Straight to Hell. There's something holy about it. Anybody see Strummer sing that w/ the Pogues? My friend did--said it gave him goose bumps..
  Thu. 8/30/07 10:33am Jamesie:

I lost my court case but I still have you to listen to! Lots of love jt
  Thu. 8/30/07 10:39am Jason T:

Hey this lau nau thing is sampling from Bowie's "Memory of a Free Festival"
  Thu. 8/30/07 10:49am Summies:

Nico brings tears. Long live Eli Cash!
  Thu. 8/30/07 10:55am seanh:

  Thu. 8/30/07 11:14am paul:

  Fri. 8/31/07 3:05am Claire:

Wow, Oxford, Mississippi -- you're not too far away. Tuscaloosa Alabama is down with Trouble, too! Sure beats the usual crap traveling over the airwaves!
  Fri. 8/31/07 10:27am Erik:

Heh, also listening from the office in Woburn, MA, like nh_dave.
  Fri. 8/31/07 12:01pm amanda:

trouble, you're the best!
myrtle beach, south cackalack listening
  Sat. 9/1/07 12:52pm Barry:

Jerry Garcia lyrics qualify as longwinded Pynchonesque verse? Interesting
  Mon. 9/3/07 2:44pm Vic Perry:

I think the Animal Collective song here - very exciting song, too! - is actually called "For Reverend Green."

bytheby: Jerry Garcia didn't write "I'm Troubled"; I've heard two or three versions of that including one by the Blue Sky Boys (who were neither deadheads nor a band who named themselves after a well-known natural soda). There's also an old spiritual with a lyrical variation. Old old song, in other words.
