Samuel’s Musician Of The Week

A couple weeks ago when Mike Frame was filling in for Mike Jeffreys on the 2CC breakfast show I received an email from someone who would prefer to remain anonymous, asking if I knew the artist or title of the song Framey played at the start of his show each day (and tends to play just about every other time he is on the radio). At the time I didn’t, but as it was something I had been wondering for a while I decided to investigate for them, and after jotting down some lyrics and doing a bit of research I was able to come up with the artist and title.

To that end, the musician of the week this week is Australian country music artist Wayne Law, and the feature song is Two Ton Chance. Wayne has a website, but I must say that I found his accompanying MySpace page to be a tad more interesting, especially considering that it contains the full version of the song.

Incidentally, it is just over ten months since I last linked to a MySpace page, and that was also in a Musician(s) Of The Week article.

Well, eight short seconds is a long, long time
when you’re sittin’ on a Brahma with hurtin’ on it’s mind
But it’s the last chute on this run and you’ve got to make it pay this time
Gate busts open
Blow or spin
You’re getting’ dizzy
He keeps turnin’ in
And you’re prayin’ that the man will find the buzzer sooner this go round
Hold on for dear life
This ain’t no way
To make an easy livin’ but I like it this way

Lord I love it
This crazy show
I’ve always dreamed of ridin’ rodeo
I’ve had some wrecks and I’ve been broke inside
But more than once I’ve drawn the money ride, yeah
I stake my dreams on this wicked dance
And I let it ride on a Two Ton Chance

There ain’t no way of tellin’ which way is up
No trouble findin’ the quickest way down
And that grease painted crazy,
He’s the best friend you’ve got out there
The crowd’s a riot
The judges score
Hey cowboy
This is what you came for

Lord I love it
This crazy show
I was born to ride the rodeo
I’ve had some wrecks and I’ve been broke inside
But more than once I’ve drawn the money ride, yeah
I stake my dreams on this wicked dance
And I let it ride on a Two Ton Chance

Lord I love it
This crazy show
I’ve always dreamed of ridin’ rodeo
I’ve had some wrecks and I’ve been broke inside
But more than once I’ve drawn the money ride, yeah
I stake my dreams on this wicked dance
And let it ride on a Two Ton Cha-ya-ance

Noise

Good morning John,

This morning I find myself mildly annoyed by noise…noise which is emanating from the general direction of Civic and floating over to my house. It sounds like some sort of dance party, and I have had the misfortune of being able to hear it quite clearly for the majority of the night. It is certainly not loud enough to stop me from going to sleep, but it is an incredibly annoying noise none-the-less, and the fact that I can hear it in the background whilst trying to listen to you driving me up the wall.

The fact that I would have to completely close my bedroom window and effectively restrict the airflow of the room in order to get some peace and quiet is irritating.

I am feeling a bit better today, however I am very tired and will be going to sleep shortly.

Have a great day.
