all kinds of things...
i was following off the track listing from an album a friend
of mine had told me about[Songs in the key of Z:The curious world of Outsider Music
], pointing me to Jandek. Just yesterday i became interested in checking out more of the artists from that record after checking to see if wesley willis was on the album.
Some of the songs i found by daniel johnston on napster were:
come see me tonight
casper the friendly ghost
i did acid with carloine
the adventures of god as a young man
rudolph the red nosed reindeer
despair came knocking
etc...a few more...a pearl jam version of walking the cow.
but i am amazed at the innocence his songs emminate, probably because they are simply that, innocent. i haven't had enough time to yet find out how or if daniel johnston is in some manner mentally ill, or why his music is classified as outsider music if not because of that. i love the way his tapes seem to be representative of the kinds of tapes i as well as many others probably made as a child...
