    My Favorite Deja Vu shows what Raggedy Edge can be as a quartet, with Dutch Workman filling in on drums and percussion and John Huston stepping in with bass and keyboards. These two experienced sidemen from Utah bring unplumbed levels of musicianship to the songs of Lynn and Bob, not only a sweet sensation for them, but for listeners as well. The CD starts with another self-analysis by Bob about life from the beginning to the day he met Lynn and looking on into the future of days that promise to be more favorite days to look back on. A little Hawaii rock slides into hardcore country that segues into the irony of Good Woman Blues. Traveling Song showcases Raggedy Edge's propensity to write in the American Standards style, followed by the gentle ode to youth Playground Swings. It's back to the blues and the rocking Push and Pull of Time's acoustic power lead as only Bob can do it to bring this strongest set yet to a close.

about

My Favorite Deja Vu came about after the title came to me. Much like "With You" on our first CD, it tries to accomplish a lot in three verses, talking about how I came to be where I am and what it means to the future. It's a love song, too, obviously, written from a bit of a past viewpoint. And it also has some lessons learned and offered in the hopes of helping some wayward singer-songwriter realize the point is to get it written down, demoed, filed away, used or moved along.

lyrics

My Favorite Déjà Vu
(Farley & Perdzock)
Been a lot of places in this world
Snow capped mountains ocean pearl
Desert cactus, prairie, beach and field
Met a lot folks along the way
Some couldn't leave, some couldn't stay
With some I had a snack, with some I had a three-course meal

But when you ask me what's My Favorite memory
What's My Favorite thing to do
My Favorite place to be in all this world?
That's right here next to you
'Cause you're My Favorite Déjà Vu

Play a lot of chords on this guitar
Trying to be a rock and roll star
Had a few good times and some train wrecks
Partied too much, drank too hard
Could not handle a business card
In the end, you get what you expect

But when you ask me what's My Favorite memory
What's My Favorite thing to do
My Favorite chords to play on this guitar
Are in this song I sing to you
'Cause you're My Favorite Déjà Vu

Feel like I’ve been everywhere before
Every time I go through one more door
Did I just miss meeting up with you?
And are you having Déjà Vu too?

Filled a lot of pages full of rhyme
Computers work but a pen's just fine
For capturing the thoughts I want to say
Learned that if I leave them on the shelf
Songs won’t ever write themselves
Somebody must shine the light of day

But when you ask me what's My Favorite memory
What’s My Favorite thing to do
I think about the life I’ve lived
And re-imagine it with you
‘Cause you’re My Favorite Déjà Vu
