…Sometimes You’re The Louisville Slugger, Baby…

…Sometimes You’re The Ball…

…Sometimes It All Comes Together, Baby…

…Sometimes You’re Going To Lose It All…

… … …

…Groovy…

…You Gotta Know Happy…

…You Gotta Know Glad…

…Because You’re Gonna Know Lonely…

…And You’re Gonna Know Bad…

…When You’re Rippin’ And A Ridin’…

THE BUGIs My Absolute Favorite Track Off Of The 1991 AlbumON EVERY STREETBy DIRE STRAITS !!!

… … … … …

… … …

Honestly, My Peeps…

…I Can’t Take Credit For This Song Selection.

Nope.

For That, Y’all Have Got To Thank My Exceptional Friend…

Ms. RENEE

…From The Famous…

…Or Infamous…

http://rendezvouswithrenee.com/

πŸ˜€

That Woman…

…I Swear…

…She Get’s My Mind Working In Many Different Ways.

Lucky For Y’all…

…Today My Focus Is THIS Song…

THE BUG

by DIRE STRAITS

!!! !!!! !!!

πŸ™‚

T’Is A Personal Favorite Jam I’d Not Listened To In Many A Moon.

Hell, I’d Forgotten I Even Had This Album In The Ole Collection Until She Posted This Song To Her Facebook Page, Yesterday.

I Think…

…Since Hearing It Again, Yesterday…

…I’ve Likely Listened To It…

…Ohhh…

…I Dunno…

…20…

…Perhaps…

…25 Times.

(teehehehe)

No Foolies, Kids.

No Foolies, Indeed.

I Was Going To Label This Piece As An Entry Into My…

“The Song Stuck In My Head”

…Series.

BUT…

…Even Though It IS Stuck In My Head…

…I Felt This One Was Much More Deserving Of The Newer…

“A Song To Make ANYONE Smile”

…Label.

Ms. RENEE

…Has The Power To ALWAYS Make Me Smile.

When I’m Sick?

Yep.

She’s On The Phone Checking-In On Me.

When I’m Depressed?

Yep.

She’s There.

When I’m Being Playful And/Or Goofy?

You Can Almost Bet She’s Involved Somewhere In The Mix.

So…

…I Figured Since This Is The Way I Best Express Myself…

…I’d Just Do-Up A Quickie Post With HER And THIS SONG In Mind.

I’ve ALWAYS Been A Fan Of…

DIRE STRAITS

…And Likely Always Will Be.

I’ve Mentioned This Before…

…But I STILL Have My…

DIRE STRAITS: THE VIDEOS COLLECTION

…On Friggin’ LASER-DISC!!!

Once Again…

…No Foolies, Kids.

And…

…In-Case You Were Wondering…

…Yes…

…That Fact Remains A Point Of Geeky Pride For Me.

I’ve Still Got Some Rather AMAZING Titles In That Little Collection.

I Love The Laser-Disc Player.

πŸ˜‰

ANYWAY…

…Back To What I Was Sayin’…

Ms. RENEEE

…Is VERY Good People.

So Why Not Dedicate A Song To Her?

That’s How We Used To Do It Back In The Day.

If You Wanted To Express Yourself To Someone…

…You Called Up The Local Radio-Station And Put In A Request With The DJ For A Song Dedication.

Since She And I Don’t Listen To The Same Radio-Station, A Dedication Of That Sort Would Be Rather Pointless.

SO…

…I’m Dialing-Up Myself…

…And Putting In My Own Sort Of Dedication.

That’s Cool, Right?!

AWESOME OPOSSUM!!!

I Kinda Figured Y’all Would Have My Back On This One.

Now…

…I Know A Bundle Of Folks Who Sincerely DO NOT LIKE THIS SONG.

Period.

THE BUG

…Is One Of Those Songs Where The Band…

DIRE STRAITS

…Was Starting To Slip More Into A Country’ish-Pop’ish-Rock’ish Sound With Their Music.

Not Totally.

Not Completely.

But Nevertheless It Was Happening.

Then…

…As It Turned-Out…

ON EVERY STREET

…Was The Final Album They Would Release.

That Was Very Much A Bummer, My Peeps.

:*(

THE BUG

…Remains A Classic Favorite From…

DIRE STRAITS

…And The Album…

ON EVERY STREET

…Does Have A Very Secure Place Within My Collection.

So I Feel Pretty Good About This Little Dedication.

Thank You For Being Such A Good, Fun Person…

Ms. RENEE

!!! !!!! !!!

T’Is So Very Much Appreciated.

And I Hope You…

…And Y’all…

…Enjoyed This One.

πŸ™‚

I DID.

The Song Stuck In My Head: “MILES TO GO” by ALISON KRAUSS & UNION STATION (2011)

…If I Had A Chance…

…I Must’ve Missed It Long Ago…

…If I Could Run Away…

…I Wouldn’t Have To Let You Go…

…This Angel’s Bound To Stray…

MILES TO GO Is A Wonderfully Beautiful Song By ALISON KRAUSS & UNION STATION From Their 2011 AlbumPAPER AIRPLANE

…Like An Hourglass…

…I’m A Soul To Sinkin’ Sand…

…You Try To Hold My Heart…

…And I Will Slip Right Through Your Hands…

…Time Just Blows Away…

Alison Krauss

…And The Petals Start To Fade…

…By The Picket Fences…

…Just Another Shade Of Miles And Miles To Go…

…And The Tears Forever Flow. …

<<<(((*)))>>>

<<((*))>>

<(*)>

\/

Hey Hey, My Peeps…

…How Hangs Thy Collective Hammer?

Yeah.

Yeah.

Same Here.

So I Had This Song…

MILES TO GO

by ALISON KRAUSS & UNION STATION

…On My Mind Last Night.

As It Turned-Out…

…I Was Honestly Tooooo Tired To Do Anything About It.

BUT…

…I Did Have The Ole Trusty MP3Player Standing By…

…Simply Waiting Around For Me To Wake-Up And Do What I Knew I Needed To Be Doing.

Sadly…

…It Was Yet ANOTHER Early Morning For Yours Truly.

It Was Well After Midnight When I Finally Went Down For The Count…

…And Just After 3AM When My Sorry Arse Awoke.

I Know, Right.

These Nights/Mornings Are Really Starting To Pile Up, Again.

I Was Doing Really Well There For A Bit.

I Was Getting To Bed At A Decent Hour…

…And Getting Up Feeling Refreshed And Alert.

But…

…No More.

Alas, Since I Wasn’t Sleepin’…

…I Felt The Need To Just Crawl Out Of My Comfortable Bed…

…And Start Working For Y’all.

Now…

…I Must Say…

…I Still Don’t Consider Myself A TRUE Fan Of Country OR Bluegrass Music.

Most Of It…

…In My Humble Opinion…

…Is Simply God-Awful.

BUT…

…I Sincerely Could Listen ToΒ ALISON KRAUSSΒ All Day And Then Some.

I Love Her Voice…

…But…

…More-So…

…I Love To Hear Her Play That Fiddle.

MILES TO GO

…Is A Personal Favorite From The Album…

PAPER AIRPLANE

…As It Sports Quality Lyrics…

…And A Catchy…

…Infectious Pace AND Rhythm.

It’s A Song I Listen To…

…Honestly…

…When I Want To Be In A Better Mood.

I Know.

I Know.

The Lyrics Don’t Suggest A Happy Song.

Regardless Of That…

…It Still Has The Ability To Perk Me Up.

Thus Far…

…Shocking As It May Be…

…Things Are Getting A Little Easier On Me.

At Least…

…For Now.

So…

…As I Sit Here Typing This…

…I Have This Particular Song Playing On Repeat.

I’ve Been In The Mood For It…

…And I’m Getting My Fill Of It.

At Least…

…For Now.

MILES TO GO

…Is…

…What I Would Call A Hybrid Song.

Yes, I’d Call It Bluegrass.

Yes, I’d Call It Country.

BUT…

…I’d Also Call It A Damn Fine Blues Number…

…With A Touch Of Pop.

It’s WONDERFUL Morning Music.

Trust Me Here, Kiddies…

…It’s A Regular Toe-Tapper If I’ve Ever Heard One.

And I Have.

Trust Me There, Also.

πŸ˜‰

I Sincerely Hope Y’all Have A Very Fine Day.

The Weather Is Supposed To Be Very Nice This Morning…

…So I’m Already Gearing-Up For A Lovely Walk-About.

I Shall Catch Y’all On The Proverbial Flip-Side.

Okie The Dokie?!

COOLIO!!
