Suburban Legend

Country - Alternative

Suburban Legend is the second album by Charlie Ray & Linda Washington. Here's quick run-down of the tracks: SEVEN DEADLY SINS: An uptempo country-rocker. The chord riff is stolen from the Flying Burrito Brothers' "Christine's Tune" THESE FOUR WALLS: A romantic tune with a "Garden Party" feel. Written for my wife and our wedding anniversary. 18 MILES FROM HER MEMORY: It's a lost-love story song -- with a little twist in the final verse . . . UNSAFE HEART: A traditional country weeper, composed at 2AM. Sometimes there's just no sleeping until you get 'em out. DANCE WITH THE DEVIL: The music and the chorus lyrics are mine, but the verses are a poem by Bonnie Parker of Bonnie & Clyde. When she wasn't killing people she wrote poetry. Nice girl. LET IT BE ME: The Everly Brothers tune, featuring some tasty steel guitar. The only cover tune, this is a staple of our live performances. ROSES IN THE FIRE: A moody country rocker, and a cheatin' song too. The lyrics were inspired by Gram Parsons' "We'll Sweep Out The Ashes". SUBURBAN COWBOY: A pop-country stomper written on the back patio with a buddy, Dexter Carlson. Dex handles all the vocals on the track. LET'S TALK ABOUT US. Linda solos on this "bimbo-in-a-bar" tune. It's last call for alcohol . . . and you're buying, Big-boy. MY FAVORITE WORD FOR BROKEN HEART (IS YOU): Inspired by Dwight Yoakam. I could hear him singing it in my head when I wrote it. And if I could hear him sing it on the radio I'd be in much better financial shape. WAYWARD ANGEL: My favorite track on the album -- three-part harmony; a bittersweet, nostalgic lyric, and a beautiful organ track by Dave Zierenberg. Sometimes everything just falls into place. Sometimes. AN ANGEL GRIEVES AGAIN: My tribute to Gram Parsons. GP fans should catch references to his band, two albums titles and other Gram-a-bilia hidden in the lyric. Written after a trip to Joshua Tree, CA. And my first attempt at playing lap-steel.
