Termagant Tuesday: “Walking Stick,” Leon Redbone


Two words: Tuba, castanets.  Question: Could there be two instruments so perfectly suited? Answer: No.  Postscript: Duh. I admit, I had a bit of a problem figuring out what “mood” this song puts me in.  I don’t know whether there are words that exist to explain whatever mood it is.  That probably goes for the whole Redbone oeuvre.  I always get a kick out of the fact that Leon clearly enjoys playing this song so much that it speeds up to almost twice the original tempo.  What a strange, inexplicable song.
