Dust in the Wind -- Kansas
Kansas is my band for life. Have loved them for 40 years. Anyone who appreciates their intricate, symphonic, non-commercial dedication to progressive rock and gorgeous melodic perfection is my friend. Kansas makes me cry for it's sheer beauty. Miracles Out of Nowhere is my eternal anthem.
"Careless Whisper" by George Michael. I had to fight the urge to sing 'I'm never gonna vote again' but I managed to stick to the lyrics.
AND IT'S ALMOST FREAKY HOW THE TITLE SEEMS TO BE REMINISCENT OF THAT BUS RIDE.
An American in Paris - Broadway cast recording
Hang on Sloopy by THE OHIO STATE marching band. During Breakfast with the Beatles!
I was thinking about my mom today, and this song popped into my head. My mom loved this song along with Harper Valley PTA
I Never Promised You a Rose Garden
Another rendition by another Ohio band:
Hang on Sloopy - Saving Jane
Things could be worse. We could have Ted Cruz.
Now that it's December, Christmas music (by John Pizzarelli):
"Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bxfkYaD7yMw
"The Christmas Song": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mZqFxx4v_H8
Love the arrangements and orchestrations.
Some of my latest listenings
Montaigne - Because I love you
Sampha - Blood on me
What You're Doing - Beatles
I saw this Walmart commercial, and had to look up the song:
Papa Don't Take No Mess - James Brown
La Bicicleta - Shakira, Carlos Vives
The watch/listen counts for this song on youtube and Spotify are absolutely astronomical, wonder why? I like it but still... wasn't expecting to see it rivalling other Shakira hits. Love Carlos Vives though.
Rumer: This Girl's in Love: A Bacharach and David Songbook
Mother Nature's Son - Paul / Beatles
I Believe in Father Christmas. Greg Lake.
Get Back - must be from Anthology, because they had talking about the lyrics at the beginning. (I think I still have the Anthology series on old video tapes!)
Been listening to Christine McVie and Stevie Nicks today.
Got A Hold On Me
Only Over You - Christine and Fleetwood Mac
Jane - Stevie Nicks (for Dr. Jane Goodall - definitely one of God's Angels on Earth)
Unconditional Love - from Stevie's album, Street Angel
Loving the shuffle feature on my mp3 player. No radio station would play these three back-to-back.
The Cult - Love Removal Machine
The Wilkinsons - 1999
Donna Summer - I'm Free
Jethro Tull - Ring Out Solstice Bells
^ OMG, I love that song (and Ian Anderson's flute playing)!
"Parlami D'Amore, Mariu" Oh my gosh! That doggone Dolce & Gabbana commercial has gotten to me. I want to buy that fragrance for everybody I know!
A friend of mine posted "The Cat Carol" on Facebook because he was missing his kitty who he had to pts at age 19 about a month ago. One of the saddest songs I've heard in a while...
"Cats" reminded me -
continuing the dog theme - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sh-J4GSPgAM
Is there a 'Rainbow Bridge' constellation? I hope so especially for the creatures who suffered here in life...homeless, abused, hunted to extinction, etc. Know peace at last.
I think this is such a beautiful song:
Crystal Bowersox - Here's Where The Story Ends
Silent Night - with the background of Norwegian Wood. Just John's voice, maybe he did it solo later. I'll have to look it up.
Poor guy at WTUE is doing Breakfast with the Beatles this morning. Lots of strange Beatles Christmas things in between other regular songs.
