New Miranda Lambert Song

 

Country artists are an eclectic bunch.  Many of them inspired by the country music their parents played, and the 70′s pop music they grew up with.  You can hear the influence of both.

I’m no record critic, I just like music.  And I ‘like’ Miranda Lambert’s new song, All Kinds of Kinds.  It kind of reminds me on Elton John’s ‘Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds.’  Don’t know why, it just does.

According to Songfacts, The song was co-written by veteran singer-songwriter Don Henry, who in 1990 co-penned Kathy Mattea’s Grammy-winning tune, “Where’ve You Been.” The other writer was Country Music artist Phillip Coleman, who penned in 2008 the original version of Ronnie Dunn’s hit “Cost of Livin’“.

It’s a clever, unusual lyric that illustrates all the different shades of color and textures that make up the human race.

“All Kinds Of Kinds”

Ilsa was an acrobat who went and fell in love with that
Horatio the human cannonball.
A weddin’ ‘neath the big top tent with barkers clowns and elephants
Sideshow family oddities and all.
The dog-faced boy howled out with joy
As the tattooed lady was crying.
Ever since the beginning to keep the world spinning
It takes all kinds of kinds.

Thomas was a congressman with closets full of skeletons
And dresses that he wore on Friday nights.
Phyllis was a pharmacist, a dab of that, a pinch of this
Concocted to suppress her appetite.
When the children were fiddlin’ she’d slip ‘em some Ritalin
And wait for Thomasina to arrive.
Cause ever since the beginning to keep the world spinning
It takes all kinds of kinds.
All kinds of kinds.

When I play this old guitar from children’s shows to smoky bars
I take a break and think about the past.
When I stood up in geometry and everybody stared at me
And I tossed my test into the trash.
I scratched off my number while hitching out under
That bush league population sign.
Ever since the beginning to keep the world spinning
It takes all kinds of kinds.

Now some point a finger and let ignorance linger
If they’d look in the mirror they’d find.
That ever since the beginning to keep the world spinning
It takes all kinds of kinds.
All kinds of kinds.
All kinds of kinds.

Miranda Lambert also includes country music ‘swim under the water superstars.’  These are some of the people you might not hear about, but are major influences on today’s pop country superstars like Miranda.  I’m talking about Stoney LaRue.  Lambert is accompanied on the chorus by Texas Country/Red Dirt artist Stoney LaRue, whose Velvet longplayer reached the top 20 of the Billboard country album chart in 2011.

Thanks Miranda, for turning us on to such a cool song with a unique slant, lean and feel. And to some artists that deserve attention.
