Message:  Many years ago a (really poor?!) compilation of Mickey's songs was released as the Best of Mickey Newbury.

I think all the porchers can do better than that!

So here's the challenge: nominate one song - I know it's hard but if we all nominate all his songs it won't get done - nominate one song that you would choose, perhaps the one you'd play to someone to demonstrate Mickey's genius.

Tell us a little about your experience of that song. And then we'll all decide together what is the Best of Mickey Newbury.

I'll start the ball rolling, or should that be the disc spinning:

'I Came To Hear The Music'

'...did God make time
to keep it all
from happening at once...'

The song expresses something of my love for, and experience of music: its power and presence in my life; its importance. How did Mickey know that's what music meant for me? As he so often does Mickey tells us his story and reminds us of our own.
