music and film

Some odds and ends about music and film
I watched Walk the Line last week - the Johnny Cash Story
At one point Cash is getting ready to perform and record a live concert at Folsom Prison...
Record Company Executive: Your fans are church folk, Johnny. Christians. They don't wanna hear you singing to a bunch of murderers and rapists, tryin' to cheer 'em up.
Johnny Cash: [pause] Well, they're not Christians, then.
What a great line... sadly... there are still a lot of people who would agree with the Record Exec.

It might have something to do with this song: One Tin Soldier
