RIP Glen Campbell

RIP Glen Campbell. Glen and songwriter Jimmy Webb were responsible for one of the greatest pop songs ever. I’ve joked before that it’s my favourite song about telegraph poles (which it is) but that engineer up on his pylon in the middle of nowhere trying to maintain communications is one of the most poignant symbols of the human condition in a three minute tune…and Glen’s rich voice renders it perfectly without overstating the lonesomeness. Absolute class.

Approximately 50% of this song is an E7 chord! Oh, the inspiration of the greats like R. D. D. !
