Occasionally, I’ll watch this video of “Man of Constant Sorry” just to get some snippets of the movie “O’ Brother Where Art Thou”.
If you haven’t seen the movie, rent, borrow, or buy it. It is one of the all time greats. At my company, lines are quoted often in meetings, at lunch, or just as situations occur. Classics like “pater familias” or “we’ze thougt you’ze was a toad”.
George Clooney picked well in choosing this movie, and he does a great job. He has such potential if he would just keep his mouth shut off screen. The entire cast did a great job, as did the costuming and set design folks. It looked like the Depressions era south.
And of course… the song. Man of Constant Sorrow. I was a fan of Alison Krauss and the Union Station before the movie, mainly for their bluegrass. They did the song, with Dan Tyminski, their guitarist singing it with his unique bluegrass tang.
If you play guitar and want to learn to play it… this is a good lesson.
