If you haven't heard of Langhorne Slim that doesn't mean you haven't heard his music. Lately it seems like his songs are in every commercial that are on TV. That's actually where I first heard him. His song was on a commercial back in 2009. His songs have been used in Coca-Cola ads, Subaru ads, Microsoft Windows ads, AutoTrader ads, Travelers Insurance ads, and others that I can't find right now. His songs are being played in every household in America.
I saw him two summers ago at Newport Folk Festival and it was easily my favorite act. In the middle of the show he played Love Crimes, a call and return song with the audience in which he got off stage and ran across the chairs of the audience singing directly into peoples faces. Everyone singing the return, having a blast and smiling. Then two songs later his band walked off stage. He stood up front by himself and sang Song for Sid and cried his eyes out. The audience sitting, calmly in their seats cried with him. That song is about his two Grandfathers, Jack and Sidney, who he told the audience had a good hand in raising him. They both passed away and he wrote it for them.
I'm so glad, I got to say goodbye
and when you run into Jack, Sidney, tell him I said hi
I loved that old man, I pray he's where he belongs
now tell me where do the great ones go when they're gone
His most popular song with the general public would probably be The Way We Move, I would guess that enjoyed the most commercial success. It was off his 2012 album. Last year he released his latest album, Spirit Moves and I don't know which one I would recommend first. Both are really well done. The songs are brutally honest and optimistic. They will have you nodding and bouncing along while at the same time listening to the lyrics and agreeing or learning. Just give some of these a listen.
I like the Yankees, watching TV shows and talking about stuff.
