Honestly…

…I Don’t Think Much Has To Be Said About This Song…

HIGH COST OF LOW LIVING

by The ALLMAN BROTHERS BAND

…Other Than It’s An EXCEPTIONAL Jam.

Period.

Upon First Hearing This Album…

HITTIN’ THE NOTE

…In 2003…

…I Was Totally Blown Away.

I Still Say It’s Arguably In The Top 5 BEST ALBUMS Of This, The 21ST Century.

Period Period.

Each And Every Song Is Brought To Life With Pain-Staking Love And Attention.

The Lyrics Are Crushingly Amazing…

…And The Backing Music Is Right On-Par With Said Lyrics.

Talk About An Exceptionally Personal Ride We’re Being Treated To, Here.

You’ve Gotta Love It When An Artist Reaches Deep Down Inside Themselves And Then Brings Something, Like This Song, Out Into The World For All Of Us.

Love It.

Simply Love It.

You Should Give It A Listen.

I Think It’s One Of Those Jams That Should Be Heard By So Many More People.

It Totally Fell Under The Radar Of Most Folks…

…And That’s Just A Damned Shame.

The Whole Album Is Like This.

Such Personal Details.

Details About A Life Spent In Such A Manner That The Person Is Lucky To Still Be Alive.

I Get All Goose-Bumpy When I Hear Songs Like This One.

To Me…

…It’s THAT GREAT Of A Jam…

…As Are The Rest Of The Jams On This Album.

You Should Check-It-Out Sometime, My Peeps.

Like It Or Hate It…

…It’s An Easy Album To Appreciate, And That’s Fo SHO.

It’s Worth It.

Period Period Period.

So, Yeah, My Peeps…

…I’ve Had This Little Number Playing Off-&-On In My Brain The Past Week…

…And I Finally Decided To Do Something About It.

TUFF ENUFF

by THE FABULOUS THUNDERBIRDS

…Is One Of THE Most Catchy Songs Ever Written And Performed In The Annals Of Human History.

And While That’s Not A Bad Thing…

…It’s Really Not A Great Thing, Either.

Listen To It Once, And You’re Mentally HOOKED.

One Word;

INFECTIOUS

.Period.

So…

…I’m Doing TWO Things, At The Moment.

One…

…I’m Bloggin’ To Y’all.

Two…

…I’m Listening To The Damned Song On My MP3Player.

That’s Right, Kids…

…I’m Driving Myself Mad With The Power Of Catchy ’80s Music.

๐Ÿ˜€

I Think We Could Officially Stamp This One…

"80s Music Overload (but in a good way)"

๐Ÿ˜‰

Don’t Get Me Wrong…

…It’s A Great Song, Fo SHO.

I’ve Just Heard It So Many MANY Times This Past Week.

Why I Didn’t Decide To Blog About It Sooner, I Haven’t The Foggiest.

Perhaps Bloggin’bout It Will Finally End The Reign Of Repeat In My Brain?!

Good Lord I Hope So.

If It Works-Out That Way…

…GREAT!!!

If It Doesn’t Work Out That Way…

…Well PLUGH!!!

For My Own Safety…

…And Sanity…

…Whatever Sanity I Have Left…

…I Sincerely Hope It Works-Out.

TUFF ENUFF

…Should Come Equipped With A Warning Label.

It Should Say Something Like…

"Warning: This Is A Great Song From The 1980's That You'll Love Love LOVE... ...Until You've Heard It Tooo Damned Many Times... ...Then It Kinda Eats At You... ...Forever... ...And Ever... Until It Doesn't Anymore... ...And Then The Cycle Repeats... ...So Goes The World."

…Or Something To That Effect.

๐Ÿ˜‰

Anyway, My Peeps…

…I Do Hope You’re Enjoying The Morning, Thus Far.

I’m Super Tired, But Can’t Get Any Sleepin’ Done.

Hence WHY I’m Up So Early, Bloggin’bout Stuff Wit Y’all.

Could Be Worse, Right?!

RIGHT!!!

Catch You Cats And Kittens Later!!!
