My latest phone ring
Sofi Tukker - Drinkee
I had to wait to type till I was actually done listening to:
Superstar by The Carpenters - #3 this week in 1971
#2 now - Go Away Little Girl - Donny Osmond
#1 - Maggie May - Rod Stewart - the ultimate October song.
ETA - Working Class Hero - Breakfast with the Beatles is featuring John Lennon songs for his birthday today
Love Superstar by The Carpenters. I've been listening to a lot of the Beatles/John Lennon songs because of his 76th birthday. Imagine, Woman, Instant Karma and Watching the Wheels are probably my favorites of his solo work.
Ballad of John and Yoko - John & Paul
Turned on the radio while I was dusting -
Witchy Woman - Eagles
Something - Beatles
(switched from American Top 40 the 70's early because it was 1979)
Just had to add - Bluebird (goosebumps!)
The Prelude Implicit, the new Kansas CD!!
I'll Be Back (I seem to be timing these posts with the songs that give me chills)
Teena Marie - Lovergirl
Is this anybody's short dance this year?
Tightrope - Leon Russell - America Top 40 1972!!!!
"like a rubber necked giraffe, you looked into my pants" oops I mean "past" (we were in 9th grade!!)
I do know the words to every song, and they remind me of going to football games.
No Beatles today. The Bengals are playing in London so the Breakfast with the Beatles show is not on that station this morning.
Michael Jackson - Girlfriend (Off The Wall album)
Manic Monday - The Bangles
I've been out of the car for half an hour, but Need You Tonight by INXS is still running through my brain.
Tash Sultana - Jungle
Across the Universe
Happy Together by The Turtles
I Call Your Name - Beatles
The #1 American Top 40 song this week in 1971 was Gypsies, Tramps and Thieves - Cher
This was earlier in the program (kinda apropos considering recent events)
Go placidly amid the noise and haste,
and remember what peace there may be in silence.
As far as possible without surrender
be on good terms with all persons.
Speak your truth quietly and clearly;
and listen to others,
even the dull and the ignorant;
they too have their story.
Avoid loud and aggressive persons,
they are vexations to the spirit.
If you compare yourself with others,
you may become vain and bitter;
for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.
Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans.
Keep interested in your own career, however humble;
it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.
Exercise caution in your business affairs;
for the world is full of trickery.
But let this not blind you to what virtue there is;
many persons strive for high ideals;
and everywhere life is full of heroism.
Especially, do not feign affection.
Neither be cynical about love;
for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment
it is as perennial as the grass.
Take kindly the counsel of the years,
gracefully surrendering the things of youth.
Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune.
But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings.
Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness.
Beyond a wholesome discipline,
be gentle with yourself.
You are a child of the universe,
no less than the trees and the stars;
you have a right to be here.
And whether or not it is clear to you,
no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.
Therefore be at peace with God,
whatever you conceive Him to be,
and whatever your labors and aspirations,
in the noisy confusion of life keep peace with your soul.
With all its sham, drudgery, and broken dreams,
it is still a beautiful world.
Strive to be happy.

Commercial is on - so I will remind everyone that Alice's Restaurant will be played on WTUE 104.7 at noon on Thursday. I guess you can stream it. And I think they play it in other cities too?
I listen to my mp3 player as I'm trying to go to sleep and an interesting choice of songs came on back to back during shuffle play. I don't think you'd hear these two back to back on any radio station!
Willie Nelson - Always On My Mind
Tina Turner - Steel Claw
Found this gem when I was looking through some of my old records. Whoop!
Love Will Find A Way - Pablo Cruise
I love that song! But my favourite Pablo Cruise song is Don't Wanna Live Without It
The guitar makes me think of Boz Scaggs' Lowdown.
Totally love Boz Scaggs. Thanks for that, and for some reason, that song made me think of this great ole song.
How Long - Ace
Jackson Browne - "For America". I'm thinking of the next president of the US.
Popped into my head out of absolutely nowhere - the carousel music part of For the Benefit of Mr. Kite. And it won't leave. (I have to turn on a radio to replace it with something.)
Edited to add - What's Goin' On - Marvin Gaye
Was in the mood for Steely Dan today. Listing my favorites and there are many.
My Old School
Reeling in the Years
Do It Again
Rikki Don't Lose That Number
An American in Paris - just saw the national tour production earlier this week
Persona Non Grata by Tété
