Greil Marcus:

4) Townes van Zandt, “Coo Coo,” on Acoustic Blue (Tomato) A 1994 concert version from the late country songwriter: Never has “Coo Coo”–or “The Cuckoo,” or “The Coo Coo Bird,” or “Jack o’ Diamonds”–taken on such detail, such melodrama. Two minutes in and it’s not a song at all, it’s a western.

An inspiration:

Lunch!

Multi-grain bread, olive oil, spicy mustard, extra sharp cheddar, fontina, and seasonings, all smashed waaaaay down.

Delicious.
