This is for the old timers here at the Factory.
I had the pleasure of discovering the absolutely best youtube music video ever (in my humble opinion obviously).
If you like old-time golden oldies (mid 50s to mid 60's) and if you like, or merely appreciate, the talent of Jerry Lee Lewis I would encourage you to watch his "Last Man Standing video." It's not for the easily distracted. It's 1:39:53 of the best music performed by the best singers/musicians of that era.
Here's my opinion of how to enjoy it.
1. Set aside an hour and forty minutes to listen.
2. Use a decent pair of headphones.
3. Actually watch the video.
4. Just lose yourself in the music of Jerry Lee Lewis and several other stars of the time such as Kris Kristofferson, Willie Nelson, Merle Haggard, Tom Jones, Norah Jones, Ivan Neville, John Fogerty, Kid Rock, and others.
Here's the program:
"Great Balls Of Fire"
"Green Green Grass of Home" (with Tom Jones)
"End Of The Road" (with Tom Jones)
"Who Will The Next Fool Be" (with Solomon Burke)
"Today I Started Lovin' You Again" (with Solomon Burke)
"Crazy Arms" (with Norah Jones)
"Your Cheatin' Heart" (with Norah Jones)
"Hadacol Boogie" (with Buddy Guy)
"Don't Put No Headstone On My Grave"
"Somewhere Over The Rainbow" (with Chris Isaak)
"Cry" (with Chris Isaak)
"Rockin' My Life Away" (with Ron Wood)
"Bumming Around" (with Merle Haggard)
"What'd I Say" (with Ivan Neville)
"Once More With Feeling" (with Kris Kristofferson)
"CC Rider" (with John Fogerty)
"Will the Circle Be Unbroken" (with John Fogerty & Kris Kristofferson)
"Good Golly Miss Molly" (with John Fogerty)
"Trouble In Mind" (with Ron Wood)
"Jambalaya" (with Willie Nelson)
"You Win Again" (with Don Henley)
"Little Queenie" (with Kid Rock)

Google "youtube" then "jerry lee lewis last man standing"
I'd appreciate feedback of what you thought of the concert.
Jerry Lee Lewis was a "has been" by the time I became interested in music in the early 60s. It wasn't until much later that I began to appreciate his energy and style.
I recently got the Last Man Standing album, and it is a blast! The album has a significantly different set of songs than the video, but they're all duets. My favorites are Rock and Roll (much better than Zeppelin) and Don't Be Afraid of Your Age.
Brings back memories of a good time in my life. Wish there was more like it now instead of most of the junk they call music now
Showing my age now
Thanks for the info.Enjoyed listening to the songs. That kinda tells my age group LOL.Had a few of the songs already. If you use the Chrome Browser they have a extension that allows you to download from Youtube called Youtube Video Downloader
Back in the day we used to go to the Hernando Hideway on Saturday nights to see Jerry Lee perform. Jerry Lee would play until the late hours of the morning and could play the ivories off the piano keys!!!

I recall my mother and father saying the exact same thing. But they were talking about "real music" from Perry Como, Patti Page and Don Messer, while the "junk" I listened to was the Beatles, Kinks and Chad Allen and the Reflections (later known as the Guess Who).
I guess things don't change that much
think to when a retired (I stress the word retired) state trooper asks me, so are you all about the bass, no treble?
I said what the **** are you talking about? And two other retired troopers begin laughing. He goes, you must not have teenage daughters.
I swear I had no idea what he was even talking about, and had to google it. I have a 4 y.o. son, no teen daughters, FYI....
I started listening to music in the 40s in the Bronx most if not all of the singers I remember are dead or in a nursing home lol. a lot of todays music doesn't appeal to me rap grunge or going down the road with your windows up and the bass sounds from the car behind you rattle's your windows and gives you a headache. I still listen to old rock and roll and country music, I watched part of the video it was fun thank you.
If you want to hear the guys that influenced JLL's piano style, search for Pete Johnson, Albert Ammons and Meade Lux Lewis.
They were considered the best of the boogie woogie players.
My personal favorite is Pete Johnson. And before them try Art Tatum.
You'll be impressed for sure.
I had the pleasure of discovering the absolutely best youtube music
video ever (in my humble opinion obviously)................
You mean in your humble and "accurate" opinion, don't you. :>)
My 90 year old aunt used to say that, and we loved it.
Then you already know that Youtube is full of great boogie woogie.
LOVE his music!
