I was perusing my iTunes library the other day, as I often do when I am supposed to be writing. And one thing I noticed, because I was getting deep into my writing avoidance, was that of the top six songs in play count, three had “Ain’t” in the title.
Trick Pony, “Ain’t Wastin’ Good Whiskey On You“
Bill Withers, “Ain’t No Sunshine”
Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, “People Ain’t No Good”
p.s. I’m also a big fan of Dwight Yoakam’s “Ain’t That Lonely Yet“
