Stardust by Hoagy Carmichael

by Mike Cregan
(Santa Barbara, CA)

OK, so this is an old war horse, but I am still in awe of the chord changes, the melody, the lyrics and how they all fit together so perfectly. It's a unique tune that is unlike anything before or since--it's not in a mold, it's not from a formula. It is totally original.

Another tune I love is David Pomeranz's "It's in Every One of Us." I love the concept and idea it gets across.

"The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down," by Robbie Robertson. This just NAILS the time and likely feeling of the person portrayed in the song as the singer--a soldier from Dixie after the War in such an authentic way.

As far as a Country hit tune, "I Go Back." It just speaks to me very plainly.

David Pomeranz's song "It's in Every One of Us", I think it is the best his song and it is very wise words in it. I think there exist not a lot of such good songs nowadays and essaytrust.org gives a good review on it

Could you do an article NEW
by: Al

Could you do an article that talks about copyright? How do we avoid infringements when we cite other people's compilations over the internet? For example, what if I print-out a paragraph of our Catechism as it has been formatted (text, font, layout, etc.) over the internet by the Picayune, Mississippi, parish St.Charles Borromeo Catholic Church SCBCC. How do I attribute their work? I notice when I leave one portion of their Catechism site, and go to print a paragraph, that SCBCC's "case number" from the Vatican appears giving SCBCC permission to offer an eletronic version of the Catechism. So how do I properly attribute at that level? Thanks!
