Ep. 2 - Propinquity Where's That Sound Coming From Presents: Questions But No Answers with Brian Marchese

    • Music

Use two four-syllable words that each contain a "q" in a sentence. Oh, that's easy. Ready? Michael Nesmith's composition "Propinquity" is one of the most ubiquitous in his catalog. How ubiquitous? There are three studio versions, five live versions and many cover versions. I don't cover them all in this episode but I do my best to play and discuss most of them. The first version of it that I ever heard gave me a very misguided picture of what Nez's solo career was all about.Propinquity was one of Nesmith's earliest compositions as well as one of the first (of many) to which he gave a title that never appears in the song's lyrics. Though one seldom finds quotes by any of Nez's contemporaries singing his praises as a songwriter, I also briefly bring up two artists who put out well-known songs in the early/mid 70's that to my ears might owe a little something to Propinquity. But I'll never know for sure, because this is Questions But No Answers. This one is for those of you who wrote and told me that 30 minute episodes are too short.
