The Watson Twins: 10 songs we can’t live without

To celebrate the new album, Talking to you, Talking to me, we have the follow up story to the interview with The Watson Twins.

It’s the 10 song they can’t live without!

Song the Watson Twins cannot live without. Hello?

  1. Sammi Smith “Never Been To Spain” – I heard her version recently and was blown away by her soulfulness, the perfect part of GREAT country music, SOUL.
  2. Etta James “Stop the Wedding”- “don’t do it, don’t break 2 hearts” amazing!
  3. M.Ward, Vic Chesnutt & Howe Gelb “Way It Goes”- An Alelandro Escovedo tune covered swimmingly by 2 of my favorite voices. Vic, you are missed.
  4. Tegan & Sara “On Directing”- Loving this song so much, twins are cool.
  5. Francoise Hardy “Le Premier Bonheur Du Jour”- The mood of this song is perfect.  It always puts me at ease.
  6. Cat Power “New York, New York”- We started a TWT tradition, when we roll into NYC, we play this jam.
  7. Santo & Johnny “Sleepwalk”- slow dance anyone?
  8. Bob Dylan “If Not for You”- This song is a prefect love song, the lighter side of Dylan… man has some serious dimensions.
  9. Carl Perkins “Honey Don’t”- Since my last visit to Memphis, Carl found his way into my heart.
  10. George Jones “He Stopped Loving Her Today”- His voice is one of my ALL TIME FAVORiTES!  This song puts a tear in my beer every time.
