George Jones' Useful Messages

Norm points to this lovely song, which I had never heard, but reminds me of one reason I like occasionally to go start up a chat with a seat neighbor in a bar (though this happens rarely now for me). (The song does quite move me.)

And, of course, once you a reminded of the truly great George Jones, you find yourself wanting to link to a hundred songs. I will link to simply one, touching, and with great lyrics, always with a twist, as in country music, where they learned this trick before the postmodernists made it an emotionally empty game to use to chase tenure.

Wordplay was once of value to emphasize emotional content; today it is often used to hide the utter lack of any content.
