I really like a lot of John Prine stuff. No doubt this list will feature many things he's written.
"Linda Goes to Mars" is such a typical example of the way John Prine's songs approach life. The answers are just staring you in the face all along. And though the solutions might be difficult, they're achievalble. To join Linda on Mars, you first have to put down your pictures of used cars. Then ask nicely if you can join her. The next thing you'll know is you've listened to half a dozen songs on youtube and have no idea where Linda went.
