Don't Laugh at Me


Many years ago at the Sebastopol Apple Fair I saw a singer songwriter whom I thought had unusual talent. His name? Steve Seskin. He co-wrote the song, Don't Laugh at Me sung here (click the title) by Mark Wills.

Something about this song really gets me. For many it's probably overly sentimental, but oh well.

I hope you'll enjoy it, too.

I'm grateful for music, especially songs that touch my heart, as so many of his do.

Loved the sentiment of the song Dan...

Today I am feeling grateful for weeds because although they can be a nuisance and a problem they are also quite beautiful...
Happy Days

Good message in the song Dan - dealing with an issue like this in song could end up being a bit 'twee' or sentimental as you said, but I think the singer pulls the song off very well indeed. - Its the sort of song that needs to be played at a school assembly - no words before or after the song - just the song.

Delwyn and Katherine, I'm glad you enjoyed the song. Alden, I agree, it's a song that makes its own case. Probably any attempt to preach about it would lessen its impact.
