flattop BS: Fund the Movie Hollywood Afraid to Make (56* d) RE: BS: Fund the Movie Hollywood Afraid to Make 06 Apr 04


Little Hawk wrote lots of great songs but he hides them. I think some of his songs are better than Dylan's. (I have never heard Little Hawk sing out of tune, either.)

I prefer his non-preaching songs like Summer's Gone and Little Crow Woman, although I liked Jesus was not a Christian. Little Hawk can do strange and impressive tricks, not just with his body! He once accepted a challenge to write a song on Bosnia in a week. He wrote a really good song, good lyrics, good tune.

Monty Python characters might call one of his gifts extraneous bombastic circumlocution but his lyrics can be lovely and his tunes sparkle.

I told my woman, Greta, all about Little Hawk. She's excited about going to Ontario to hear him in May. Not sure we can make the trip. It's only a 1500 miles but hearing him would be worth the wander.
