90's Hit Parade #93

Willie Nelson - Still is Still Moving to Me

Amazing that, some 30 years after writing "Crazy" for Patsy Cline, Willie Nelson could still write a song this good (and now, nearly 20 years down the road, he's still at it!). A classic gypsy drifter anthem, with a Mexicali/surf sound that moves along with the propulsion the lyrics describe, and a great line that any acid head will take to heart: "It's hard to explain how I feel/It won't go in words but I know that it's real." Yeah, I can relate, dude! Sometime in the last decade, Willie released this reggae version with Toots and the Maytals (actually, I believe it's on a Toots album, not a Willie Nelson album).
