    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sl9ZkYViEIs-John Prine may have been the most underrated talent in his genre.
    You know, I think I would rather be a man than a god . We don't need anyone to believe in us. We just keep going anyhow. It's what we do.

    DUDE!!! I quote the song Illegal Smile on almost a daily basis. People just can't stand to see someone smiling for no apparent reason and Prine nailed it with that song. I thought I was the only one who appreciated him. Good call.

    ''when i woke up this mornin , things were looking bad ,
    seemed like total silence , was the only friend I had ,
    bowl of oatmeal tried to stare me down , and won,
    and it was 12 o'clock before i realized ,i was having NO FUN,
    but fortunately,i have the key to escape reality

    So you may see me tonight with an illegal smile ,
    it don't cost very much and it lasts a long while .
    Please tell the man I wasn't hurting no one ,
    I was just trying to have me some fun.

    A few others I like in the genre are Leo Kotke (plays a killer 12 string acoustic) & the late Phil Ochs.

    Sixx AM may be the best new band out there. This song is not only very well written lyrically but if you turn it up and listen to the drums you will be stunned.
