I was listening to Uncle Tupelo today, and it got me thinking about musical Uncles. And I’ve got quite a few songs about Uncles on my iPod:
• Uncle Albert / Admiral Halsey - Paul McCartney
• Uncle Charlie – Nitty Gritty Dirt Band
• Uncle Fred – Blue Highway
• Uncle John’s Band – Grateful Dead
• Uncle Josh – Mike Cross
• Uncle Milton’s Ant Farm – The Shrunken Headbangers
• Uncle Pen – Hank Williams Jr.
• Uncle Remus – Frank Zappa
• Uncle Salty – Aerosmith
• Uncle Son - Kinks
• Uncle Walter – Ben Folds Five
And songs about Aunts? Only 2, and both by the Monkees: Your Auntie Grizelda and Auntie’s Municipal Court.
