The Most Awesomest Song of the Day: “It Ain’t Paradise” by Joanie and Matt!!!

Here’s a link to the complete list:

I want to emphasize mostly, relatively newer music, just like on my Monday night show, “Prime Time Theme Attic.” (Monday nights 8PM-10PM ET when it returns.)

Here’s the link for when that day comes: )

But I can promise this: I will not force my selections. If something doesn’t hit me, I won’t post one.

Everything I do has always been about shining a spotlight on the artist and their music.

Now I will have the potential to shine 365 more spotlights if I want to!

Please share the post to help spread the word!

Regardless of everything going on in the world that is way more important than my daily post, I will continue, nonetheless, in case someone is looking for a few minutes of respite.


OK, everyone.

Open your Bibles for today’s lesson and song, “It Ain’t Paradise” by Joanie and Matt, from their Philby Award winning, Sterlingalbum!

“Sterling” is full of Biblical songs that put a fresh spin on ancient stories!

The song centers on the relationship between Adam and Eve.

Joanie Leeds is at or near the top for total Philbys, and is a multi faceted artist with a warm, rich voice!

It’s a warm voice, that is, unless she’s playing a snarky, Eve with an attitude!

As the only couple on earth that can’t get along–and I mean only couple because there aren’t any others, Matthew Check is the perfect foil for his partner as Adam!

And Adam is not going to win this argument!

Eve tells him that,

“I labored eighteen hours and birthed us Abel and Cain!

What have you done today?”

And then she digs the knife in deeper with a condescending, “Adam!”

All he can respond with is a weak, “Whoo!”

There are a lot of good lines in “It Ain’t Paradise” and I usually laugh at something when I listen to it!

At the least, it should put a smile on your face!

If you can’t imagine what a toe tappin’  bluegrass song with fiddle, banjo, and tight harmonies sounds like, you have to give it a listen…or two!
