lifeblood: songs: background: back together again


emily saliers quote from 1995-10-10: 1200 curfews liner notes:

"i forgot that i even wrote this song when we came across it for consideration. even though the lyrics make me cringe when i hear them now, the song takes me back to a time when amy came down to new orleans to visit and we played on the streets of the french quarter for tips. this is a song about our friendship and our music. yikes - the lyrics!"

amy ray quote from 1995-10-10: 1200 curfews liner notes:

"one of the first two original songs we played together (the other one was called tuesday's children). emily wrote this song after she had been away at tulane university and i was back home, still in high school. i went to visit her in new orleans and she taught me this song - that weekend we played for tips in jackson square. i believe we recorded this the summer after my high school senior year (1982). this was part of the 'live in amy's basement tapes' - a collection called extension - recorded through a cheap mixing board to a cassette."
