Weekly Contest: Last Week's Answers, and This Week's Question

Our contest last week, in honor of the Kentucky Derby, asked you to submit a song about horses, or mentioning horses, or a single horse, or a race. Here's the list we got.

"Wild Horses", Rolling Stones

"Dead Flowers", Rolling Stones

"Fugue for Tinhorns", from "Guys and Dolls"

"Horse With No Name", America

"Stewball", traditional blues

"Tennessee Stud", Doc Watson, et alia

"Old Grey Mare", traditional

"Mr. Ed" (a theme song's a song, we suppose)

"The Horse", Phish

"The Horse", by "some soul band from the 60's" (we remember the song - an instrumental - and likewise don't know the artist, and didn't bother to look it up).

An eclectic list, to be sure. The randomly-selected winner is Alex, who gets a $10 gift certificate to Small World Music.

For this week's drawing, in honor of Mother's Day, tell us who is your mother's favorite musician. Or one of her favorites. We'll learn something about local tastes across generations. It will be interesting demographic information.

Submit your entry to Small World Music at Entries accepted through Friday morning, and winner announced Friday afternoon.

Thanks -

The Horse song which was identified was by Cliff Noble - released sometime in the mid-late 60's - considered to be R&B
