I’m Not Really Sure What To Think…

…I Just Know I’ve Maintained My Good Mood.

I’ve Been This Way Since Friday.

And, Honestly, I Like It.

πŸ˜€

I’m Not Going To Discuss The Details, As Those Are Mine To Delight In.

I Just Ask That You Be Delighted With Me.

I’ve Been Taking Some Chances, And They’re Paying-Off.

No Risk, No Reward, Right???

RIGHT!!!

And Now…

…Now I’m In The Holding Pattern.

The Classic Game Of Hurry-Up And Wait.

The Thing Is, This Time, I’m Not Sure If I Mind It One Bit.

It’s A Jumble Of Odd Feelings.

I’m Anxious.

I’m Nervous.

I’m Buzzing-About.

It Just Feels Odd.

Not Bad, My Peeps, But Odd.

And, Right Now, Odd Feels Pretty Damned Wonderful.

I’ve Had Good Moments In Life.

I’ve Had Bad Moments In Life.

But, I’m Relishing In These Odd Moments.

Am I Being Foolish???

Honestly, I Don’t Think So.

I Feel Confident.

I’m Not Sure Of What’s Going To Happen…

…But I’m Still Confident.

I’m Confident SOMETHING Is Going To Happen.

That’s The Only Answer I Can Give Where I’m Assured 100% Victory.

I Know, I Know…

…No Risk, No Reward.

Well, In This Instance, I’m Betting On The House.

The House Always Wins, Right???

No, Really, Is That Right???

I’m Generally Not A Gambling Man.

Only When I Want Something Bad Enough, Ya Know?!?

Well, Right Now, I Want Something So Bad I Can Taste It.

I Can Taste It, And It’s Sweet.

It’s So Very VERY Sweet.

But, I’m Going To Have To Work For It.

I’m Going To Have To Work Very VERY Hard.

But, To Me, It’s Worth It.

πŸ˜‰

I’ve Been Listening To A Lot Of Music This Past Day/Night.

YOURE ONLY HUMAN (SECOND WIND)

by BILLY JOEL

…Is The Song I’ve Listened To The Most.

It’s Very Fitting, Right Now.

Give It A Listen.

I’m Sure You’ve All Been In A Similar Situation As The Person In The Song.

I’ve Blogged About The Song Before…

http://youjivinmeturkey.com/2012/11/02/of-all-the-songs-to-get-stuck-in-my-head-youre-only-human-second-wind-1985-by-billy-joel/

…But It’s Very VERY Relevant For Me At This Particular Time.

Like The Man Says…

“…Youve Been Keeping To Yourself These Days

…’Cause Youre Thinking Everythings Gone Wrong

SometimesΒ  You Just Wanna Lay Down And Die

That Emotion Can Be So Strong

But, Hold On

…’Til That Ole Second Wind Comes Along. …”

He’s Got It Exactly Right, My Peeps.

Spot On, BILLY JOEL, Spot On.

Well Played, Sir, Well Played.

πŸ˜€Β Β Β Β Β Β  πŸ˜‰

I Do Promise, My Peeps, That I’ll Keep Y’all Posted As Best As I Can.

For Now…

…For Right Now…

…Just Know I Am Happy.

Whether That Feeling Lasts, Or Not, Remains To Be Seen.

But, For Now, I’m Rollin’ With It.

Sometimes, That’s Good Enough.

Right???

RIGHT!!!

πŸ˜€Β Β Β Β Β Β  πŸ˜€Β Β Β Β Β Β  πŸ˜€

So... Are YOU Jivin Me -questionmark-

I Do So Enjoy Being Proud Of Myself…

…But Not Because I’m (truly)Proud Of Myself.

I’m Proud Of The Fact I Didn’t F*uck-Something-Up…

AGAIN!

This Is What I Can Do:

I’m A Constant Tinkerer-er In Regard To Most Things, Especially IF I’m Interested In It.

But, I Like Understanding The Main Questions One Should Always Ask…

…Especially Those That Yield The Most Answers To my Quarry…

…Or, Are Likely To Yield.

WHO/WHOM?

WHAT?

WHEN?

WHERE?

WHY?

HOW?

If I Get Those Things, I’m Generally Content.

But, SometimesΒ  Getting Them All Just Isn’t Enough.

I’m Proud Of Myself For (almost) Being Careful (to a point), (almost) Being Optimistic (though not really), (almost) Open (either to greatness, or to a fault, whichever comes), And (almost) Able To Function. Life Doesn’t Come With A Manual, But You Already Know That. I Just Sincerely Wish There Really Was Something (something at all).

I Do Not “Get” (read as “understand”) Things Faith Based…

…But, I Do Get Those That Are Reality Based.

I Accept REALITY Over FAITH Any Moment Of Any Day.

From What I’ve Seen/Done In Life…

…I Honestly Don’t Care What The Situation Is.

I Care About What I Care About.

I Care About My Peeps, Myself, And Other People’s Approval Of Me.

Not Acceptance.

Approval.

There IS A Difference.

All Of What I Talk About Is MY Personal Anguish And Joy.

How I’m Feeling.

How I Got Hurt.

How I Made Myself Suffer.

How I Made Someone Else Suffer.

How I Truly Look-At/Consider Topics, And And Certain Things.

I’m Not Sheltered.

I’m Rather Worldly.

I’ve Been All Over The World, As A Matter Of Fact.

And It’s Taught Me That You CANNOT Always Put Yourself “Out There” So So SO Much.

Anyway.

My Head Hurts.

My Eyes Hurt.

I Think It Could Be Bedtime.

Or, It’s Very Close At-Hand.

πŸ˜‰

And Now…

…I Leave You All With The Song That’s Been Playing In My Ear For Nearly 30-Minutes…

BILLY JOEL‘s Exceptionally Fun Jam “KEEPING THE FAITH” From (1983)

Sleep Sweet, My Peeps.

We ALL Deserve It.

So We’re Going To Get It.

Damn Skippy?

DAMN SKIPPY!

Of All The Songs To Get Stuck In My Head: “YOU’RE ONLY HUMAN (SECOND WIND)” (1985) By BILLY JOEL

***

*** ***

“…Just Like A Boxer In A Title-Fight

You’ve Got To Walk In That Ring Alone

You’re Not The Only One Who’s Made Mistakes

But They’re The Only Things That You Can Truly Call Your Own…”

“…Don’t Forget Your Second Wind

Wait In The Corner

Until Our Breeze Blows In…”

“…You’ve Been Keeping To Yourself These Days

‘Cause You’re Thinking Everything’s Gone Wrong

Sometimes You Just Want To Lay Down And Die

That Emotion Can Be So Strong

But Hold On

‘Til That Ole Second Wind Comes Along. …”

*** ***

***

Alright…

…Sheesh…

…What A Way To Begin The Day, Eh?!

Agreed.

I Don’t Know Why I Awoke In The Mood For The Musical Stylings Of…

BILLY JOEL

…But Sure Enough, I Did.

I Couldn’t Help It.

I Needed Something Upbeat…

…But With Lyrics That Were Meaningful.

When In Doubt, My Peeps…

JOEL-IT!

πŸ˜‰

He’s Always Got That Loving Combination Of Quality Beats/Rhythms AND Lyrics That Hold Special Meaning For Those Listening To Him.

BILLY JOEL

…Always Manages To Leave Me In A Better Mood Than When He Found Me, That’s A BIG FO SHO.

Sometimes, I Know Exactly Why…

…While At Other Times, I Honestly Have No Clue As To Why I’m In A Better Mood Following A Couple Of His Jammin’ Tunes, Such As…

YOU’RE ONLY HUMAN (SECOND WIND)”

πŸ˜€

I Suppose It’s All Just Linked To My Childhood.

BILLY JOEL

…Was A Constant Fixture Around My Home.

My Mother LOVED Him.

And That May Be An Understatement.

We Had His Music-Video Collection On The Ole VHS.

We Had The Bulk Of His Albums On The Ole CASSETTES.

He Was With Us At Home.

He Was With Us In The Car.

He Was With Us When We Went To Someone Else’s Home.

You Name It…

BILLY JOEL

…Was There.

Period.

Now…

…At 30’ish’ish Years Of Age…

…I Still Can’t Get Away From The Guy.

I Have His Greatest Hits Both On The CD And On My MP3Player.

Whenever I Need A Fix…

…There He Is.

Ready.

Willing.

Able.

Just Kickin’-It-Back…

…Waiting For The Time When His Services Are Called To Attention.

And This Morning…

…I Needed Him.

I Awoke Kinda Pissy.

I Went To Bed Super Early, As I Did Not Feel Good.

I Missed A Few Texts And Phone-Calls.

Things I’d Been Waiting On Most Of The Day.

That’s Always Kinda Upsetting.

Nothing I Can Do About It…

…But Still Upsetting.

SO…

…I Sincerely Needed A Pick-Me-Up.

BILLY JOEL

…In All His Wisdom…

…Swooped-In And Rescued Me!

Kudos, Man.

Kudos, Indeed.

πŸ˜€

It’s Now FRIDAY, My Peeps!

The Weekend Is Upon Us!

So Let’s Get This Day Out Of The Way So We Can Kick-It-Back And Enjoy It, Hey Hey!

πŸ˜‰

Y’all Please Take Care Of Yourselves.

If Not For You…

…Do It For Me.

Someone’s Gotta Have A Damned Decent Day…

…And It Might As Well Be YOU!!!

I’ll Be Right Here The Bulk Of The Day…

…And I’ll Try To Keep Y’all Occupied As Best As I Can.

UNTIL THEN… πŸ˜€

My Morning Mixes: Well, Well, Well!

Hey, Kids, Good Morning.

Well…

…It’s Been A While Since I’ve Done One Of These…

…But This Morning’s Walk Simply Felt Amazing…

(regardless of the light-misty-rainy conditions)

…And I Have My Rockin’ Jams To Thank For It!

πŸ™‚

I Kicked-Off My Walk This Morning With The Song…

WELL, WELL

by BETH HART And JOE BONAMASSA

…As It’s A Truly Wonderful Jam…

…And It Really Gets Me Going.

It Really REALLY Was The Perfect Song To Get The Morning Rollin’!

Her Voice And His Guitar Are A Match Made In Music Heaven, Fo SHO, My Peeps!

πŸ˜€

Up Next…

…Thanks To Mr. MP3Player, And His Wonderful “Shuffle” Button, Was…

A VIEW TO A KILL

by DURAN DURAN

!!! !!!

I’ve Said It Before And I’ll Say It Again…

A VIEW TO A KILL

…Remains My Favorite JAMES BOND Theme Song EVER.

Period.

I Know What I Like.

I Know What I Love.

And I Love Me Some…

A VIEW TO A KILL

…And Some…

DURAN DURAN

!!!!!!!

πŸ˜€

Following That One Was…

EVERY YOU EVERY ME

by PLACEBO

…Which Is Just A Totally Fun Jam From One Of My Favorite Bands!

πŸ˜€ Β  πŸ˜€

Next Up Was The Classic Favorite…

CRADLE OF LOVE

by BILLY IDOL

Nothin’ But The Best Around Here, Eh?!

Eh, Indeed!!

(teehehe)

πŸ˜‰

So…

…What Do You Think Came-Up Next?!

Well…

…If You Said…

BLONDIE

…And Their Rockin’ Jam…

ONE WAY OR ANOTHER

…You’d Be VERY Correct!!!

πŸ˜‰

Mr. MP3Player Was Really Cranking-Out Some Major Tunage This Morning, Fo SHO, My Peeps!

It’s Been A Long Time Since I’d Listened To A Few Of These Personal Faves.

I Do So LOVE The “Shuffle” Button On This Thing.

I Get A Motley Mix Of Music That’s Better Than Any Mixed Tape Or CD One Could Create.

Period.

Next…

…He Kicked It Down A Notch With…

ONLY THE LONELY

by ROY ORBISON

…Which Is One I’ve Already Blogged About, I Love It So Much.

ROY ORBISON

…Is Hard To Top, That’s Fo SHO.

He’s My Favorite Favorite Solo-Artist Of ALL TIME.

Period Period.

His Music Sincerely Speaks To Me.

I Love His Voice.

I Love His Lyrics.

I Love Everything About His Music.

So This One Was A Totally Great Choice By The Player!!!

πŸ˜€

For The Next Song, I Took Control.

I’d Really Been Wanting To Hear Some…

BILLY JOEL

…So I Thumbed Through My Tunes Until I Settled On…

KEEPING THE FAITH

…Which Just Felt Right.

It’s Very Middle-Of-The-Road In Regard To Its Pace And Rhythm.

Something I Could Just Cruise To For A Few Minutes.

It Really Was An Excellent Choice For What I Was Wanting To Do.

(pats self on the back)

GO ME!!!

πŸ˜€

πŸ˜‰

Following Mr. JOEL, I Popped The “Shuffle” Button Again, And Mr. MP3Player Tossed-Out…

MYSTIFY

by INXS

…At Me, And I Was Hoofin’ It Once Again!

MYSTIFY

…Is Arguably The Best Jam By…

INXS

…Or At Least, To Me It Is.

If It’s Not The Best…

…I’d Still Call It My Favorite.

Such A Classic Jam, Fo SHO!

πŸ˜€

I Decided To Cut My Wheels And Head On Home, At This Point.

I Knew I Had Time For At Least Two More Songs…

…And My Player Was Only Too Happy To Oblige.

He Went With…

THE OLD MAN DOWN THE ROAD

by JOHN FOGERTY

…Which Is An Excellent Choice For Walking Purposes.

It’s Got A Wonderful Beat That You Can Step To.

It’s One Of Those Songs That Make Walking A Pleasure.

πŸ™‚

For My Final Jam, I Selected It Myself.

I’d Been In The Mood To Hear It All Morning…

…And I KNEW It Was The Perfect Jam To Finish-Up With.

What Was It, You Ask?!

Well…

…It Was…

STANDING OUTSIDE A BROKEN PHONE-BOOTH WITH MONEY IN MY HAND

by PRIMITIVE RADIO GODS

!!! !!! !!! !!! !!! !!! !!!

Now Tell Me That One’s Not The PERFECT JAM To Finish-Up With!

Go On…

…Tell Me!

πŸ˜‰

A Totally Wonderful Song To Cool Down With, My Peeps, Fo Flippin’ SHO!!!

πŸ˜€ Β  Β  πŸ˜€ Β  Β  πŸ˜€

And That’s It, My Peeps.

T’Was A Great Walk.

As I Said, It Felt Amazing.

I Needed It Bad.

Always Helps To Clear The Mind A Bit.

Sometimes, That’s All Anyone Really Needs.

A Good Walk…

…With Some Great Tunes.

Sounds Like The Perfect Way To Spend A Morning, Doesn’t It!?

DOESN’T IT!?!

SURE IT DOES!!!

Double Shot: The Song Stuck In My Head THAT ALSO Makes Me Smile: “A MATTER OF TRUST” by BILLY JOEL (1986)

Some Love Is Just A Lie Of The Heart

The Cold Remains Of What Began With A Passionate Start

And, They May Not Want It To End

...But It Will

Its Just A Question Of When

Ive Lived Long Enough To Have Learned

The Closer You Get To The Fire

The More You Get Burned

But, That Wont Happen To Us

…’Cause Its Always Been A Matter Of Trust

***[{*}]***

The 1986 Single Album Version OfA MATTER OF TRUSTBy BILLY JOEL !!!

***[{*}]***

Now, I Know Youre An Emotional Girl

It Took A Lot For You To Not Lose Your Faith In This World

But, I Cant Offer You Proof

But, Youre Going To Face A Moment Of Truth...

Its Hard When Youre Always Afraid

You Just Recover When Another Belief Is Betrayed

So Break My Heart If You Must

Its A Matter Of Trust

***[{*}]***

A MATTER OF TRUSTWas The Biggest Hit Off Of BILLY JOEL‘s 1986 AlbumTHE BRIDGE!!!

***[{*}]***

*[{*}]*

Alright, My Peeps…

…I’m Going To Try Making This Short-N-Sweet.

For The First Time In My Life…

…This Song…

A MATTER OF TRUST

by BILLY JOEL

…Actually…

…Oddly…

…Honestly…

(almost) Depressed Me.

ARRRGGGHHH!!!

If Life Truly Is A Game…

…As I’ve Long Believed…

…Then This Is One Time Where I Wanna Throw A Penalty Flag…

…’Cause The Damned Radio Station Just Kicked Me Hard In The Stomach THEN Laughed At Me!!!

Sheesh.

Oldies Station My Ass.

BILLY JOEL?!?

Really?!?

The Man’s AMAZING.

The Music Is WONDERFUL.

And, I Did Manage To Smile Throughout My Listen-Along.

But, I Still Can’t Get Over The Fact That This Song…

A MATTER OF TRUST

by BILLY JOEL

…From…

1986

…Is Now An OLDIE.

😦

πŸ™‚

πŸ˜€

It’s Really A Mixed-Bag Of Emotions, Honestly.

πŸ˜‰

“…They Say There’s A Heaven For Those Who Will Wait…”

…Some Say It’s Better…

…But I Say It Ain’t…

…I’d Rather Laugh With The Sinners…

…Than Cry With The Saints…

…The Sinners Are Much More Fun…

…You Know That Only The Good Die Young. …

BILLY JOEL

(“ONLY THE GOOD DIE YOUNG“)

Songs That Make Me Smile: “RIVER OF DREAMS” by BILLY JOEL (1993)

… … …

“…In The Middle Of The Night

I Go Walking In My Sleep

Through The Jungle Of Doubt

To The River So Deep

I Know I’m Searching For Something

Something So Undefined

That It Can Only Be Seen

By The Eyes Of The Blind

In The Middle Of The Night…”

… … …

“…I’m Not Sure About A Life After This

God Knows I’ve Never Been A Spiritual Man

Baptized By The Fire, I Wade

Into The River That Is Running To The Promised Land…”

… … …

“…In The Middle Of The Night

I Go Walking In My Sleep

Through The Desert Of Truth

To The River So Deep

We All End In The Ocean

We All Start In The Streams

We’re All Carried Along

By The

RIVER OF DREAMS

In The Middle Of The Night. …”

… … …

RIVER OF DREAMSIs The Title Song To BILLY JOEL‘s 1993 Album… …”RIVER OF DREAMS

… … …

… … … … …

… … …

Alright…

…So How On Hell’s Half-Acre Does This Song…

RIVER OF DREAMS

by BILLY JOEL

…Make Bradley Smile???

Well…

…You Actually Have To Go Back To It’s Initial Release In 1993.

My Father Purchased The Album For My Mother And I…

…Since My Mother And I Were Chomping At The Bit To Get Our Hands On It.

As You Know Already…

Β (if you've kept up with my bloggin'ings over the past 8 months) 

…I Was Raised On The Music Of MR. JOEL.

I Was One Of The Only Kids I Knew Of Whom Could Honestly Call Himself…

“A BILLY JOEL FAN-BOY”

.Period.

But You See…

…There Was An Issue.

My BFF Was, At The Time, Listening To MAINLY “Contemporary Christian” Music…

…A Music Genera I’ve Never Been Able To Stomach.

SO…

…I Had A Plan.

Since This Album…

RIVER OF DREAMS

…Had An Almost Gospel’ish-Like Sound…

…I Was Going To Attempt To Convert Him Into Listening To The Music I Loved.

.Period Period.

The Problem Was…

…His Parents HATED My Music.

They Felt It Was Horridly UN-Christian.

I Know…

…It Doesn’t Sound Like Something That Would Make One Smile…

…But Hindsight Is Funny That Way.

You See…

…It Was WORKING!

I Was Succeeding In My Conversion!

Right Up To The Part Where MR. JOEL Sings Aloud…

“…God Knows I’ve Never Been A Spiritual Man…”

πŸ˜•

OOPS!

Upon Hearing That Line…

…The Music Was Ejected From The Player…

…And I Was Sent Home For Attempting To Corrupt My Devoutly Religious Friend.

I Could Honestly Go On And On About This Subject…

…But, In Fairness To My BFF, I Shall Not.

Let’s Just Say This…

…The Music Eventually DID WIN!

Hell, It Won SO Convincingly…

…That My BFF Was The Person Whom Eventually Introduced Me To…

THE BLOODHOUND GANG

RICHARD CHEESE

KID ROCK

etc etc etc

πŸ˜€

And NOW Y’all Can See WHY This Song Makes Me Smile.

RIVER OF DREAMS

by BILLY JOEL

…Was Step Number One In Helping My BFF Break-Free Of The Shackles That Had So Bound His Childhood.

I Don’t Take Total Credit For It, Though.

He’d Wanted To Break-Away For A Long, LONG Time.

He Just Didn’t Know How To Go About It.

Cue The Godless Heathen That Was HIS BFF…

…And BAAM!!!

The Snowball Began To Roll…

…And It Rolled And Rolled And Rolled.

And Now…

…He’s The Coolest Cat Anyone’s Ever Known.

He’s The Life Of The Party.

He’s The Man With The Plan.

He Picks Up What You’re Puttin’ Down.

He Can Read What You’re Writin’.

He Can Smell What You’re Cookin’.

He’s The Guy The Rest Envy, Because He Lives HIS Life HIS Way.

And It All Began…

…In Regard To MY PART In Helping Him Out…

…With A Jammin’ Little Tune By…

BILLY JOEL

!!! !!! !!!

How’z ’bout Them Apples!!!

πŸ˜€

11 Tunes For The Morning Stroll: A Collection Of Fave-Faves!

So…

…It Was Already Freakin’ HOT Outside!

So I Decided To Beat The Heat With Some Cool Cool Classic Jams!!!

Needless To Say…

…By The End Of My Little Jaunt About Town…

…I Was Sweatin’ Like Crazy!

BUT…

…That’s Part Of The Whole “Exercise Experience” As I’m Sure You’re Already Aware.

If You Ain’t Sweatin’…

…You Ain’t Doin’ It Right!!!

…So…

…As You Can Gather…

…My Walk This Morning Was EXCEPTIONAL!!!

It Felt Great To Get Out-&-About And Bebop Around Town, Fo SHO!!!

The Music Was So Good I Did My Usual 45min. Stroll In About 30min.

I Was Hoofing It!!!

I Did Make A Couple Goofs Along The Way, Though…

…Stepping Off The Curb And Not Having My Right Foot Planted Quite Right.

So I Did Yelp Aloud In Pain Because Of This Damned Broken Toe.

😦

But That Was Really The Only Major Issue.

After Doing It A Second Time, However, I Decided To Call It A Walk And I Cruised On Back Home.

And Now…

…Here I Am…

…Bloggin’ About It With Y’all.

Friday Rolls Onward, My Peeps.

Let’s Hope It’s A Good One.

Fo SHO Fo SHO!!!
