Do you already know who Christine Lavin is? Lots of you do. She joined us at the Moisture Festival a couple of times but if you’re a fan of folk music you knew her well before that. Of course she fit right in with our crowd and we’re happy that she’ll take part in the 2021 festival as well. One could be quite entertained of an evening searching online music and video sites to listen to her sing the songs she’s written, I know that’s true because it’s how I spent this evening. In fact, you’d go a long way just reading the fun titles of the songs she’s written … here, I’ll prove it:
Bald Headed Men, Good Thing He Can’t Read My Mind, Shopping Cart Of Love: The Play, Polkadot Pancakes, Happy Divorce Day, Roses from the Wrong Man, What Was I Thinking?, Cold Pizza for Breakfast,Getting In Touch With My Inner Bitch, If You’re Drunk, You Cannot Buy A Puppy
That’s just a small sample but … well … let’s stop beating around the bush, Christine Lavin has written the longest song title of all time. Enjoy: “Regretting What I Said to You When You Called Me 11:00 On a Friday Morning to Tell Me that at 1:00 Friday Afternoon You’re Gonna Leave Your Office, Go Downstairs, Hail a Cab to Go Out to the Airport to Catch a Plane to Go Skiing in the Alps for Two Weeks, Not that I Wanted to Go With You, I Wasn’t Able to Leave Town, I’m Not a Very Good Skier, I Couldn’t Expect You to Pay My Way, But After Going Out With You for Three Years I DON’T Like Surprises”.
Just for fun, I wanted to include here a note that she added to a recent communication:
Last night I did a show and ended with a brand new 16 verse song called, “Life Happens Fast On West 20th Street,” which involves a bride from Montana coming to shop at world-famous “Kleinfeld’s Bridal Salon” on West 20th Street and by accident instead walks into Mike’s Tech Shop and all hell breaks loose at Mike’s, Kleinfeld’s, and the naughty lingerie shop on the other side of Mike’s. Songs keep having to be written! It’s up on my FB page: facebook.com/christine.lavin.5 — you can skip to 1:16:20 and for the next 8 minutes hear what got written when I challenged myself by saying, “What if . . .?”
