L is for Ray LaMontagne


“Part One – Hey, No Pressure” was my introduction to Mr. LaMontagne and one of the first tunes I heard on WNKU. His sensual crooning and the song’s uplifting message make it an ongoing favorite. I really need to look into his six studio albums and find out if I should put them on a wish list.





For L, I’m going to create Lost Left Socks. Like with the letter D’s phony Dimensional Drift, the name was inspired by an old cartoon. In this case it’s “Ren and Stimpy” and these three irreverent musicians tend to spoof other artists like the hugely successful Weird Al Yankovic.

I know Mr. Yankovic has an extensive new catalog but I just adore "Fat".

    1. Actually, it's 'irreverent'. ~giggle~ I like your phrase. It could *be* a band name. Thanks for stopping by. Your comments always make me smile.
