Song of the Week: "Margarita"

Feeling a bit unfocused this morning, so I guess this fits right in. Just woke up with it in my head. Roy Orbison, George Harrison, Jeff Lynne, Bob Dylan and Tom Petty as the Traveling Wilburys, from one of my all time favorite albums by anyone, Traveling Wilburys Vol. 1. Petty is the main author of this song, but it plays like a jam session, with nonsense lyrics and Harrison's slide guitar. A side project finding its sound.

What a great album...

I love them both, the albums. Always thought there were albums by each of the five that were ersatz volume 2.

That whole collaboration, and the way they kept collaborating with each other, might be my favorite sound in music. I think the volume 2 was some kind of bootleg, and George just making a joke about it with the volume 2 title. Now I want to make a playlist of solo stuff as a volume 2 to listen to and do housework to...
