…Sometimes You’re Going To Lose It All…

… … …

…Groovy…

…You Gotta Know Happy…

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.
