Bill Stains on youtube…

In response to the news that texting while driving is now illegal in MN, a co-worker sent out a link to this song on youtube today. That song really reminded me of another song by Bill Stains, one of the guys my dad used to drag us out to see when we were kids. (This was usually at the Coffeehouse Extempore, now known as the Cedar Cultural Center).

The song it reminded me of was one I remembered as “The Ballad of Ten Ton Molly”. And when I couldn’t find that particular song on youtube, I found a few other Bill Stains songs on there. (Mostly poor quality though, which is rather sad.)

Apparently the song is actually called Jake and 10 Ton Molly, and was originally by Mike Agranoff.

Oh, you can hear it on his myspace page! My memory of Bill Stains’ version is better, but it’s well worth a listen. It’s also worth finding some old Bill Stains albums. He’s got such a great voice.
