Willie Nelson, "I'm a Memory," on disc one of the recent box set, from 1970. Willie goes psychedelic, a well you'd think someone that publicly stoned would have gone to more often. Well, he has his deep philosophical moments, sure, but those you can take, as it were, straight. Anyway, listened to this again earlier (it's in my 2008 Old Songs file) and realized: Richard Harris could be singing this. And maybe he has. (I'm no expert.) But even better was the thought that followed: But he isn't. Willie Nelson is. Everybody wins.
