Every so often we turn over the wheel (well, the jukebox) and let one of our loyal readers “call the ball.”

You know … sort of like Maverick in Top Gun, only without all the gay subthemes.

That’s the case tonight …

As happenstance would have it, we were in a bit of a mellow mood this evening ourselves and were planning on playing the Glee version of Stevie Nicks’ classic “Landslide.” Either that or the Billy Corgan cover of the song, which is the version we “came up on.”

But everybody’s heard “Landslide …” with good reason.

Everybody has not heard “One Picture,” which is off of Birmingham, Alabama folk rocker Peter Bradley Adams‘ 2006 debut LP Gather Up.

This absolute gem of an earthy, down-tempo number comes to us courtesy of the lovely C.J. of Columbia, S.C. – who in addition to being quite the musical talent herself may or may not have also served as the spokesman to President Jed Bartlett in another life.

As always, our jukebox is also your jukebox. If you’ve got a song you want to hear, email us. Also be sure to scroll down beneath the lyrics to see all the other songs we’ve played previously …

PETER BRADLEY ADAMS: “ONE PICTURE”

Sun rises, she’s lying beside me
Lost in her dreaming behind closed eyes
And the covers rest on her shoulders
Softly she’s breathing, her head turned to mine

If there was one picture I could take in my life
I would take the one beside me in the dawn’s early light

And I watched her many a morning
Careful not to wake her up from her dreams
And I could lie here and watch her forever

Ain’t no sight better that my eyes have seen

If there was one picture I could take in my life
I would take the one beside me in the dawn’s early light
If there was one picture I could take in my life
I would take the one beside me in the dawn’s early light
The light, in the dawn’s early light
