I told my husband that the lead singer of Semisonic said that Closing Time is actually about the moment of giving birth, and he told me that that guy was 9000% trolling everyone.

My ex-husband was obsessed with Robyn and that was super annoying to me because in my mind she’ll always be “Do You Know What it Takes” Robyn.

Anyway, here’s Wonderwall.

Or Mr Bojangles.

For me she will always be “You Can Always Be Number One” Robyn (this is from a live special of the Swedish public television show Lilla Sportspegeln – “little sports mirror” – the equivalent of, say, a World Wide Sports for kids. Yes, that is her).

And here is the program’s title sequence with her song:

You enrich my life daily.

November 1973 - Sam Thompson’s House, Memphis:

Baby, What You Want Me To Do
I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry
Spanish Eyes
See See Rider
That’s All Right

The last five cuts here are special even in the context of this release, however – recorded in November 1973 during an impromptu ‘session’ at the home of friend and musical colleague Sam Thompson in Memphis, and preserved by the latter on a cassette that was later damaged and repaired before being copied (and later lost in a fire), they capture Presley (on acoustic guitar) and friends running through ‘Baby What Do You Want Me to Do’, ‘I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry’, ‘Spanish Eyes’ (adopting a falsetto voice), ‘See See Rider’, and ‘That’s All Right’ in varying degrees of informality; and closing with a foul-mouthed but very funny poetic moment that some parents won’t appreciate. The fidelity is astonishingly good and by itself this could have made a great EP if we were still living in an era of vinyl. The only complaint one is tempted to focus upon is the relatively thin annotation – given the high list price for the CDs in this series, one could expect more detailed session information, background, and the names of other musicians involved; yes, that information is available elsewhere, but for the high premium price, it ought to be here.
