Song of the Week: "Adiós" by Glen Campbell



2017 saw the release of Glen Campbell's album, Adiós.  It is his 64th studio album and his last.

In the final stages of alzheimer's disease, Glen Campbell recorded the album after his last tour in 2012. According to his wife, it was to preserve the "magic."

And magic it is. The album features many songs that Campbell had always wanted to record, but never did, including the Harry Nilsson classic: "Everybody's Talkin'."

The final song on the album, penned by Jimmy Webb, a long-time collaborator with Glen Campbell is this week's song of the week. It is the title track.

Instead of playing the usual vinyl version of the song, below is the recently released music video. It is an amazing bittersweet farewell to a career that has spanned almost 60 years.



Hear the Song of the Week on Wednesday, August 2nd at 10 am and 10 pm (Central/-5 GMT) and throughout the week.

Just this week, Frank Sinatra's widow, Barbara Marx Sinatra, died at the age of 90.  So this week, we are dusting off a relatively unknown Frank Sinatra album from 1968.

The song is "Cycles," perhaps one of the greatest Sinatra songs of all time. This song truly highlights Sinatra's ability to interpret lyrics.

Listen to the song now, played on glorious vinyl.
