This reminds me of a Chris Rock routine a few years back. He was on tour, and asked the group if anyone has Spice Girls CD's. No one raises their hands. Chris Rock says "Funny thing.. I'm on a world tour, and everywhere I go, no one raises their hands!" Yet, they sell 3 million copies!! Someone is buying them!

Everyone I talk to makes fun of the infomercials. But... someone is buying these things!
From the late, great Steve Goodman:

Re: Steve Goodman

Jim, I had never heard of this guy before. Extremely talented. That was some pretty nice timing in that jingle, not to mention some decent guitar playing.

Goodman's popularity as a performer didn't extend much beyond Chicago, but he had a good deal of success as a songwriter. He ran into Arlo Guthrie in a Chicago bar one night and asked him if he could play a song for him. Guthrie agreed, on the condition that Goodman buy him a beer first, and that he would listen only as long as the beer lasted. Guthrie got his beer, and he also got "City of New Orleans," which became the best-known song for both of them.

Goodman was diagnosed with leukemia in 1969, and spent his entire performing and recording career battling the disease. He succumbed to it in 1984 at the age of 36.

Is this the same Steve Goodman that wrote "You don't have to call me Darlin'", AKA the perfect country and western song, recorded by David Allen Coe?

According to WIkipedia, they are indeed one and the same. I had never made the "City of New Orleans" connection, though. Interesting. Wiki says he wrote the Coe song with (John?) "Prine", but "Prine" refused any songwriting credit.

I'll have to see if Amazon has any cds...

As I recall, Coe's version of the song indicates that he (Coe) sat down and wrote another verse, realizing that he did not quite have the perfect country and western song.

"And I'll hang around along as you will let me...."

Re: Steve Goodman

I believe it is on the Prime Prine album (well CD now).
First song I ever heard of by Prine was
There's a hole in Daddys arm where all the money goes.
Jesus died for nothing, I suppose.
Little pitchers have big ears, don't stop and count the years.

The line I like the best is " and sweet songs never last too long on broken radios". You gotta love it!
