Here’s the opposite end of my music loving spectrum. I have no idea why I love this song so much, but I’ve loved it since I can remember. I think it has to be connected with some special memory, though I couldn’t tell you what the memory is. All I know is that every time I hear it, it makes me feel good. Contentment washes over me, my blood pressure goes down, my breathing slows.

The funny thing is that this is the first time I’ve ever seen Ray Price actually singing it. I had no idea until today what he even looked like. (He looks a little stiff up there; doesn’t he?) Of course, he’s lip-syncing the song - that was the norm back in the 60s; no one would have vilified him for it.

Anyway…lots of people have covered this piece - Elvis had his own version - but this is the only one I like. So, that said, here’s Ray Price singing “For the Good Times.”
