New State Songs

With just two days to go in the 2018 Budget session, the Wyoming legislature has not yet adopted a budget to pay for the operations of state government or the K-12 state school system.  It has, however, created two new official state songs, “Wyoming Where I Belong” and “Ragtime Cowboy Joe”.  A proposal to add a Kip Ataway song was rejected.  Pictured: Rome burning.

Correction: sadly, the Wyoming state senate ultimately rejected “Ragtime Cowboy Joe” as a new official state song.

    The same “Higher Truth album that is dedicated to his best friend / soul mate/ and love of his life Vicky Cornell? The same “Higher Truth album that includes the song “Josephine which Cornell has said was the song he wrote asking Vicky to marry him (he changed the name of the song for the album)? Yes, I know it has “Murderer of Blue Skies. Of course I initially interpreted it as referring to Vicky, but then why dedicate the album to her and refer to her as his best friend and soul mate? By your logic, “Wrong Side would be about Chris as well, and yet it”s fictional, and Cornell has stated that he doesn”t write songs about personal events in his life. He has also said that the protagonist (the voice) in his songs isn”t necessarily the author of the song. Take “Wrong Side and “Misery Chain as an example. If you ask me to find the exact video interview where he said it, I won”t be able to find it, but it was during the Carry On / Scream era.
