Tennessee Wine/Drink You Away

Caught this when they broadcast the CMAs here in the UK. The two halves were a superlative whole, and no, I’m not apologising. Country music is wine, women, heartache and love. I tend to lean towards the earlier, more bluesy primitive stuff but this was wonderful.

I like Justin Timberlake, he does interesting things and here’s another of my favourite tunes, the most fruitful of his collaboration with Timbaland.

The dance sequence where he tears her tights away is a lovely bit of choreography. Modern dance has done some wonderful things to express the polarity of sexuality within it.

    1. I was delightfully surprised by it. As I said, I like some country but mainly the more bluesy, primal stuff so normally the CMAs are a bit of a disappointment but that was brilliant, wasn’t it? Life throws up some lovely surprises. Thank you for commenting, it’s always really appreciated


      1. Exactly what I was thinking, usually award shows are pretty disappointing but that performance was really something!


      2. I remember when the VMAs used to do that. Nine Inch Nails doing The Fragile, RHCP when all those people rushed the stage, Nirvana threatening to do the first few bars of Rape Me. Now it’s probably just that I’m a bit more aware of how controlled and contrived it all is.

      3. It’s all done for the new generation of teens who all they want hear is that new song from that new artist and they don’t care about anything else, sad to see this change


      4. I think though, that with the internet, the normal distribution networks are dying, when you can watch and buy direct from the artist’s own site now. Plus ca change. I’ve been listening to Black Messiah by D’Angelo solidly for about a month now, myself


      5. true, but sometimes that creates new problems. The good stuff finds a way to get to people, and the talent shows/awards ceremonies pretend that they still matter. Not that I would turn down a nomination for a book award ever though. Always looking for a chance to wear a suit haha.
