I dunno about a best song, but best band about Indiana would probably be "Violet Indiana", featuring Robin Guthrie of Cocteau Twins... ------------------ [b]New and Improved Music Soon:[/b] http://www.mp3.com/chipmcdonald

"there's pigeon's now in Market Square/and she's standing in her underware" Does that count? "Last Dance With Mary Jane" TP

First, let me start this reply by admitting that I am a Hoosier - born in South Bend...so the first Indiana song I would put in might go something like.... "Cheer all for old Notre Dame...." or maybe even.... .."Oh, Indiana, my Indiana, oh Indiana we're all for you....." gasp....sputterrrrr..... Sir John Cougar Mellencamp Esquire is and always was so [b]lame[/b]...such a faux poet. He always tried so hard to be so profound and always ended up sounding so juvenile. Hoosiers by and large are prouder of Dan Quail than they are of Sir John Cougar Mellencamp Esquire Cheers, Mark ------------------ http://www.broadjam.com/artistprofile/artistindex.asp?artistID=936 or listen at... http://artists.mp3s.com/artists/294/mark_coming_project.html

Well, just for the potential of jazz reharmonization and actual Indiana content, I have to go with "On The Banks of the Wabash." "Oh, the moonlight's fair tonight along the Wabash..." You know, if Robert Indiana and Judy Chicago had a son who grew up to be an artist, they could call him Gary Hammond. - Jim Bordner

"D.I.E. in Indiana" by the Lazy Cowgirls (a band whose career started when they moved from Indiana to L.A.). Interesting how there are many musicians FROM Indiana, but very few IN Indiana (although IU has a top-notch music department).

[quote]Originally posted by dansouth@yahoo.com: [b]Indiana Wants Me By the way, what happened to this site? All the text is in a disgusting piss yellow color. Ugly! Ugly! Ugly! Haven't you guys ever heard the saying if it ain't broke, don't fix it? :mad: [/b][/quote] Oh, I logged back in, and now the text is blue. But performance is really slow, and I can't get into Dave Bryce's forum. Do you guys actually TEST these changes before you release them?

The artist was R. Dean Taylor. It was released in 1970. "Indiana Wants Me" was our first #1 hit at Motown that never even touched the R&B charts. It was pure bubblegum. The engineer and voice in the bull-horn on the single is Don Gooch. I recorded and mixed the rest of the album. Dean became much more famous in England than in the U.S. because of an earlier hit there called "Gotta See Jane."

Yep, Bob, I remember being a kid back up in Michigan in 1970, listening to ol' CKLW (in the days before WRIF and WABX and W4) and R. Dean. That brings back some memories. Thanks. I never knew that song was on Motown, because it wasn't R&B. But, thanks! But, just thought of another favorite Indiana song..."Real Fine Love" by John Hiatt... "Well I never went to college I did not have the luck Stole out of Indiana In the back of a pickup truck With no destination higher Than the streets of my hometown Went searchin' for a fire Just to burn it all down..."
"Cisco Kid, was a friend of mine"
