Well, baby used to stay out all night long
She made me cry and she did me wrong
She had my nose open, that's no lie
The table's have turned, now it's her turn to cry
Because I used to love her, but it's all over now
Because I used to love her, but it's all over now

She used to run around with every man in town
She spent all my money tryying to play that high class game
She put me down, it was a pity how I cried
The table's have turned, now it's her turn to cry
Because I used to love her, but it's all over now
Because I used to love her, but it's all over now

I used to wake up in the morning, get my breakfast in bed
Whenever I got worried, she would rub my aching head
But now she's here and there, with every man in town
Still trying to take me for that same old clown
Because I used to love her, but it's all over now
Because I used to love her, but it's all over now

Ry Cooder, Election Special: CD review
Ry Cooder's 2012 album Election Special is a musical protest album against the American right.

Ry Cooder has never taken a predictable path in a 40-year career of inventive music but Election Special is his most political record yet.

It's safe to say that the 65-year-old from California does not want a Republican in the White House, yet the opening track is played for laughs as well as polemics. Mutt Romney Blues - a gospel-blues shuffle - lampoons the presidential wanna-be through the voice of his mistreated dog (the real strapped-to-the-car roof incident is on YouTube) as he (the mutt) sings:

Don’t look right, it don’t seem right
Hot in the day, cold all night
Where I’m goin’ I just don’t know
Poor dog’s got to bottle up and go
Oh Mr Boss, cut me down!
Woof, woof, woof

Musically, the follow up to the magnificent Pull Up Some Dust And Sit Down, is an in-family album. Cooder wrote all the tracks and matches his angry vocals against his own guitar, mandolin, bass, with his son Joachim on drums. The swinging, upbeat arrangements serve to make the protest lyrics all the more strident.

There is some typically fine slide guitar on Cold Cold Feeling (a song in defence of President Obama). Sarah Palin is another target and Brother Is Gone mocks the influential Koch brothers for allegedly selling their souls to the devil. Take Your Hands Off It a rousing defence of constitutional rights.

Cooder is probably untroubled by the thought that the album will date very quickly - or that the lyrics are unlikely to resonate with non-American, non 'liberal' listeners. But, that said, the album is full of great music, the sort of bluesy, R&B material master guitarist Cooder does so very well.

Crap cover art? Jimmy Buffet could have pulled it off. As to the song, some artists are so awesome that anything can be forgiven.
Well, I could easily live without ever hearing this again......

What?  The Dead has a song less than 40 minutes??

Good music for so many years. It's easy to forget how good he is...and... How much he works to re-invent himself and good music over the years... Too easy... the pursuit of new faces, new sounds, new words... we take too much for granted in this life... We consume too shallow and ignore the talents that brought us here...  Free Markets... Free People ...means innovate and provide value going forward...  No rest...no stopping, no resting... Mediocrity gets trampled...fads and fashions fade... Still like good, aged whiskey or port...somethings just get better and better...

I think I was at this show! They had some weird juggling act open up for them-guys on stilts jugging over the audience. I was up against the stage. BTW my upload.

I thought of David Lindley too! He's made some fun records. Have never, ever heard of Twango Bango records though LOL. But thanks for the tip.

The original?  {#Mrgreen}
 
"It's All Over Now" was written by Bobby Womack and Shirley Womack. It was first released by The Valentinos featuring Bobby Womack. The Valentinos version entered the Billboard Hot 100 on June 27, 1964, where it stayed on the chart for two weeks, peaking at No. 94. The Rolling Stones had their first number-one hit with this song in July 1964.

I remember a time when drinking fountains were restricted to certain people. Wasn't so great.

never did like Ry Cooder's voice. Never did a thing for me. A "3," if  I had to rate it.

Wow now RP's playing "Tom Thumb's Blues"...from the ridiculous to the sublime.!
Very good !

LOL I'm not sure I understand ~ Bill I know you love your cover tunes and god knows I do too

I just don't know how I feel about this one LOL ~ really

Well, I love it. I liked the Stones version and like this one more.
Little Feat-ish, and not in a good way
Just because something can be done to a song, it doesn't mean it SHOULD be done.  I think this is the first song that hit bottom for me on RP.
That's Earl "Fatha" Hines on the 88s. Pretty cool.
This *does* sound Lindley-ish—classic rock turned white man's reggae. And that's fine with me.
Strong or not, sometimes I am sooo tired of reggae.  Oh, well, gotta take the bitter with the sweet.
David Lindley?
One of Ry Cooder's strongest albums. It contains the gem "Married Man's A Fool" along with "Ditty Wah Ditty" which features Earl "Fatha" Hines on piano.
My wife thought he was singing "I used two rubbers but it's all over now".
This is pretty good but I still like the Dead's version the best.

Is there such a thing as good Dr Hook?

Love it!!!
Cooder?? I hardly know her!

Nice to see another CT Radio Paradise fan...

So funny, I LOVE this version. I got this album any moons ago, and it's always been one of my favorites from Ry. Awkward and klunky. Just my style... It is an acquired taste, for sure.
A classic Ry Cooder album, to be sure. But this is not one of its stronger tracks.

And one of the least appealing album covers ever...
In it's own right almost pleasant, but as a cover, ouch... painful!
I thought this was The Grateful Dead when it first warbled out of the speakers, and I don't mean that as a compliment.

Smilin' and grinnin.' 

"Tennis shoe music" appropriate for the springtime weather out my window.


This is god awful, please make it stop
I like this version.

Maybe. This is closer to Bobby Womack's original.

What are the chances a guy named "Ry Cooder" would have "she done me wrong" in his lyrics?  Pretty high, me thinks.

Alas, all too true. This was the first Ry album I ever acquired (swiped it from the radio station I was working at when it came in as a promo) and I've been a curious fan ever since. He's had a marvelous career but, yeah, this is one of the rare klinkers.

I came in from emptying the trash during the instrumental. I could have sworn the song was Elton John's "Honky Cat".

I'm a big fan of Ry, but this interpretation is a bit uninspired; not among his best.

"More cowbell" just what is that all about?  {#Wink}

Makes me respect the Stones.
 Ry Cooder is an amazing guy ! He has collaborated with just about everybody on their album projects. He has written countless
sound-tracks for TV, movies, ect. His skill levels run higher than a John Fahey Peter Lang  or Leo Kottke, but he has such a low public profile.
I've been lucky enough to see Ry in Seattle several times and was always very impressed with his command of music theory.
He's like a Warren Zevon—with a great command over stringed instruments. He makes a 12 string come to life. To judge him over one cut is to short his varied and wealth of talent.   PS did you know : February 23, 2001 · Guitarist John Fahey died yesterday at the age of 61. He was often called the inventor of American primitivist music. He established a record label in 1963, signing musicians like Leo Kottke, Peter Lang and George Winston.

Yechh.  Talking Heads turned sour... which is a tall feat.

This sure ain't paradise.


My buddy, who turned me on to RadioParadise, named his son after Ry 20 years ago!
A cross between the Rolling Stones and Bob Marley. And a poor one at that.
Quite remarkably dreadful, one of the very occasional RP songs that are painful to sit through. And I like some of Ry Cooder's stuff, really....
:bounce: :bounce: :bounce:
interesting..usually not a fan, but the words of this song and the title of the album give it an automatic 8 today. :arrowl:

Find it hard not to enjoy Ry immensely.

Wonderful album & always good to have moore RC on the playlist - however IMHO this is one of the weakest songs on this particular album!!

This isn't really very good, all in all, now is it?
Meh. I'd rather hear the Stones version.
