Also, I went on iTunes the other day and found 4 Teddy songs that aren't on any of his CDs. There's one from the Brokeback Mountain soundtrack (BTW, it's so weird, but I adored that movie and thought was one of the saddest movies ever, and I don't usually care at all about celebs, but H Ledger's death has made that movie even sadder. Anyone else?), two from a Leonard Cohen tribute, and 1from a Pirate CD. They're all great!

Is the first one "I Don't Want to Say Goodbye?" I love that one.

That's the one. The other 3 are The Future, Tonight Will Be Fine, and Sally Brown.

Tonight Will Be Fine is just awesome. The Future I love by Leonard himself, not so much by Teddy (that would be my first ever thing I DON'T care for by Teddy). Haven't heard Sally Brown yet.

I am so loving In My Arms and the title cut from the new album.

Thanks, Arlene. I've turned some of my friends on to him, and 5 of them are going with Toni and me to see Teddy a month from now. He's headlining at the Great American Music Hall, a wonderful, small venue, AND it's a Friday night, AND he's playing with a band. All of which makes me super excited about the show. The woman at the box office told me that the show is selling really well and she thinks it'll be a standing show. Any of you want to come out? We can have a Teddy fest. Cheap tickets ($26) and a great venue.....

Thanks for that great link, Arlene. Enjoyed every second of it.

Have fun at your TeddyFest, Kevin. Wish I could attend.

I'm hoping to see Teddy and Tift Merritt at one of my favorite Atlanta venues on Sept. 6. What a great birthday present that would be!

Here's another Teddy interview from the Upfront and Down Low era. He does an awesome acoustic version of Down Low.

Saw Teddy and Tift Merritt last Saturday night at a small venue in midtown. They were co-billed but I was hoping Teddy would play last. Alas, he opened the show and played every song on the new album except for "Jonathan's Book." That was it. He left me wanting to hear so much more. I was a little disappointed but made the best of it. He sounded great and the band was terrific.

Tift Merritt put on a fantastic show.

Aw man what I would give to see those two together!

I finally got my new Teddy album. I'm not even through it and I'm pretty sure I will love it. His voice just makes me melt...

We saw Teddy and his band last night headlining at the Great American Music Hall, a small club in SF. HE ROCKED!!! I simply do not understand how he is not more popular. His songs are completely accessible, his voice, as Marybeth said, makes you melt, and he's got a wonderful stage presence. He played almost all (or maybe all) the songs from the new CD, some old ones, a few new ones. I've only seen him by himself before and was really really looking forward to seeing him with a band and he did NOT disappoint. It was one of my favorite shows ever. Soooo much fun. I wish he were recording and selling his shows.

I saw that he's heading over to Britain to mostly open for James Blunt, which seems like a good combo, though I'm not a big James Blunt fan. As with Patty, on the one hand, it would be great if he stayed less well known so I could continue to see him in small venues, up close, for $25, but on the other hand, he's just toooooo damn good.

Wonderful wonderful wonderful show.

We saw Teddy open for the 2 guys from the Jayhawks last week. He was amazing, as usual. And he did a GREAT cover of....Super Trooper by Abba. Seriously, I have to get a copy of it. It was wonderful. Teddy is it. He's my male Patty...almost.
