They're Only Words.....

After getting This Mornin'.... added to The Hype MachineThe Hype Machine a few weeks ago, my hits have been soaring - from about 50 a day to over 200! i'm glad i'm getting some readers, but i've still only got about 5 comments total. i wanna hear from you.

Tell me i suck
Tell me i'm great
Suggest some music
Ask about some music
Ask me why i don't capitalize my i's......... something.

i can track quite a lot of information on my visitors - mainly referrals - how you found me. While most people link up through or Hype, there's some other interesting stuff.

Found this today:
check out #3 under the large picture of Al Green. Pretty cool.

But quite a few visits show up with no referral at all. This means some of you out there have This Mornin'.... bookmarked and visit often. Let me know what is you like about the site. i've got quite a large music library, so if you wanna get you hands on a certain piece of music, let me know. i know most people just show up, download a track, and leave without cuddling - i do it too. But if something here makes you stop and read, for any reason, don't be afraid to leave a comment.
here's some music.......... greedy bastards.

mp3: Mike McClure Band - Don't You Say Anything
~buy EverythingUpsideDown (2004) - Amazing Album

mp3: Guy Clark - Shut Up and Talk To Me
~buy Dublin Blues (1995) - Masterpiece

mp3: Ryan Adams - Words
~buy Elizabethtown Soundtrack, Vol. 2 (2005)


  1. Fine-- good blog. More Ryan Adams. (No matter how much, it's not enough).

  2. Five comments so far isn't bad -- my current estimate is that about one in every thousand visitors comments at Cover Lay Down. It depends on the post, too: some get a dozen, some get none. Download stats don't generally parallel comments, etc. Hard to know what to think of them, really.

    If it helps, hypemachine led me to you...and I put you on the blogroll right away.

    Keep up the good work, keep writing and posting what you love, and the people will come.

  3. i agree with the first anon...ryan adams is sweet. a friend sent me here because he found your ryan adams post detailing the heartbreaker album. i read it and enjoyed what you had to say. since then, you've been bookmarked. i'm enjoying some of the lesser-known bands and the quick background you give on each.

  4. I originally found you via and since then I've had you bookmarked. I visit now and then and like your style...just enough info to form an opinion without it being too wordy and deep. And of course, the odd track to sample.

    I'm trying to do something similar (but with my own twist) at One Word Triggers and I've added you to the blogroll. Only been doing the blog about a month so traffic's not too great yet.

    As boyhowdy said, keep on going and don't change a thing.

  5. Hi - I found you searching for "Bob Dylan" on Hype Machine. One request: if you could include the artist's name in the MP3 file name as well as the song title, it would be helpful. Thanks!

  6. I love the song "Words", I read somewhere that Adams submitted a bunch more songs to Cameron Crowe for that film....wonder what happened to them?

    Thanks for your blogging...

    If you're ever interested in some non RIAA music, you could check out

    also, if you're a last.fmer the whole overdubs record is a free download on there.

  7. Normally, I am one of those people that "just show up, download a track, and leave without cuddling", because most blogs I go to only have one or two songs I like. Yours, however, has opened me up to a world of new artists, which will probably take up my enitre weekend listening to....Thanks! But I figured since you have giving so much, I would try and give something back. I'm not a huge Ryan Adams fan, but it seems everyone else that has left a comment is. You may already have it, but here is a live recording of him that I really like:

    Anyways, thanks again. I have bookmarked your site, and will be checking it frequently.
