Here's a song to start your Friday on somber note with Porter Wagoner singing Johnny Cash's song "Committed to Parkview."

"Hello darkness my old friend." Paul Simon

Parkview is Now Admitting Patients

The song sort of reminds me of "Fire and Rain" by the bi-polar James Taylor.

Porter also had a song back in the '60s called "The Rubber Room." or something like that. About a padded cell.

The best songs tell true stories.

This one is particularly dark.

Malcolm, Dallas has Parkland. I'm not sure where Parkview is.

Darkness attracts me more than light which why songs like this one speak to me.

I think I'll go watch "Sophie's Choice" now to cheer myself up.

Porter actually does this one better than Cash.
Back before the proliferation of rehab centers and programs and the like, being committed to a mental institution was often the only option for families dealing with extreme alcoholism and out of control addiction issues. And some came out worse than before they went in, which is very understandable to me, as such a place seems like hell on Earth.

(Porter bought a bed from me once. It was the flashiest gaudiest thing that we ever got in, I put it on display in the front window, and he drove by, saw it, and just had to have it! I liked him in person quite a lot.)

I'm also a bit drawn to darkness. I find Wagoner's cover to be even darker than Cash's original.

I think I read somewhere that Cash originally wrote it for Porter Wagner when they were both in Parkview (Nashvile I think.) for rehab. I don't remember the rest of the story.

Mr. Cash did manage to out-dark Trent Reznor when he covered Nine Inch Nails' "Hurt". Something about an older man voicing those feelings gives the impression that they never really go away. You just get used to them.
