Wonderful track, but why exactly did the people sing “La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la” on The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down? I can’t find a decent explanation for this anywhere. Help La.
Hi all. You may have seen me here and there on the afterword posting little comments and participating in the odd discussion but nothing thread-worthy had occurred to me – that is until now. I’m listening to a lot of hip-hop at the moment so I’m used to grabbing words as they go past quickly but I must say this song and its accompanying video are something else. It’s word after word after word in the most straightforward logical way I’m sure that can possibly be imagined. I can’t take full credit for discovering this as it was sent to me by my enthusiastic dad (his hit rate is usually about 2 out of 5 for me) who is a big fan of the artist concerned. If you can think of any music that uses words as oddly and nicely as this does, I’d love to hear suggestions!
