Rickie Lee Jones - Elvis Cadillac

“Everybody tries so hard to sing a song no one can hear.” Ouch. The truth hurts. But with a delicious juevos rancheros of a tune, it’s really easy to listen to this song too few will hear. “Janis Joplin’s got a job on the corner in a bar, so I guess we’re doing alright.” The salsa is homemade, the tang perfectly squeezed from fresh lime. “Yes, my heart was opened, but no, I don’t look back, cause I’m riding around in heaven in Elvis’ Cadillac.” Shoutout goes to the brilliantly executed Nobody Knows My Name.
