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

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

A VIEW TO A KILL

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!!!

My MIDNIGHT Mixes: The Beginning

Since I’ve Been Having Ongoing Sleep Issues…

…I’ve Decided To Put Those Wasted Moments…

…Or Hours…

…To Some (hopefully) Good Use.

As I’m A Fan Of Listening To Music When I Can’t Sleep…

…I Figured This Was The Next (seemingly) Logical Step.

Sooo…

…Tonight…

…Or…

…Well…

…This Early Early Morning…

…I Bring You The First In A New Series I’m Calling…

My MIDNIGHT Mixes

!!! !!!! !!!

As I Sat Down To Begin This Little Adventure…

…I Showed No-Signs Of Any Approaching Sleep.

Hopefully…

…By The Time I’m Ready To “Click-Publish”

…I’ll ALSO Be Ready To “Hit-The-Sack”!!

The Only Song I Chose Was The Final Song Of The Mix.

And Away We Go…

The First Song Up Was…

SHOCK ME

by KISS

…Off Of Their “LOVE GUN” Album!!!

Honestly…

…It Seemed Very Fitting At The Time.

I Hadn’t Listened To It For A Long Time, Ya Know?!

Kinda Surprised Me.

πŸ˜‰

Then I Was Handed A Second Dose Of…

KISS

…With The Classic ’80s Jam…

RISE TO IT

…From Their Album “HOT IN THE SHADE“!!!

πŸ˜€

The Next Great Tune Out Of The Gate Was…

ROCKIN’ THE SUBURBS

by BEN FOLDS

…Off Of The Title Album, “ROCKIN’ THE SUBURBS“…

…Which I’ve Always Considered A Personal Favorite Jam, Fo SHO.

πŸ™‚

Then My Player Hit Me Hard With…

BILLY IDOL‘s

CRADLE OF LOVE

…Off Of The Album “CHARMED LIFE“!!!

πŸ™‚

It Started To Feel More And More RIGHT When The Player Went Onto…

BEASTIE BOYS

…And Their Awesome Jam…

INTERGALACTIC

…From The Damn Fine Album “HELLO NASTY“!!!

πŸ˜€

The Next Song Seemed An “Odd” Followup.

YES…

…My Player Then Began…

…Oh Yeah…

…Playing…

MADONNA‘s

LIKE A PRAYER

…From The Album…

…Oh Yeah,Β “LIKE A PRAYER“!!!

It Immediately Made Me Giggle Something Fierce, By The Way.

(teehehehe)

πŸ˜‰

ANYWAY…

…Onward I Went With My Music…

…Still Awake…

…With Very Few Hints Of Sleep In The Air.

STEAM

by PETER GABRIEL

…From His Album “US“…

…Was Up Next!!!

πŸ™‚

And THEN The Ole Player Touched On A Song I Hadn’t Listened To In A While…

SANTERIA

by SUBLIME

…From The Band’s Title Album “SUBLIME“!!!

A Personal Fave Of Faves, Fo SHO!

πŸ˜€

My Player Was Really Churning-Out A Damned Decent Playlist For Me…

…And I Sincerely Enjoyed What Was Going On.

I Was Pretty Sure It Couldn’t Top The Previous Song…

…But It Came Close With…

CREAM

by PRINCE

…Off His Album “DIAMONDS AND PEARLS“!!!

My FAVORITE Song From The Man!!!

Nice!!!

πŸ™‚

The Next Song Was…

THE ROBERT CRAY BAND‘s

PHONE BOOTH

…Which Is/Was/Always-Will-Be A VERY SOLID Jam From “BAD INFLUENCE“!!!

πŸ˜€

At This Point…

…I Was Starting To Tire A Touch…

…So I Decided To Kick-On The One Song I’d Been Wanting To Hear All Night.

Which Song Is That, You Ask?!

EARLY TO BED

by MORPHINE

…From “LIKE SWIMMING“!!!

I’d Been Itching To Hear It…

…And This Felt Like The Total RIGHT TIME, Ya Know Ya Know?!?!

πŸ˜€

As It Was Ending…

…I Went Ahead And Shut-Off The Player.

I Was Going To Crawl Back Under The Covers…

…Until I Realized Something.

I Realized There Was No Way On Hell’s Half-Acre I Was Going To Be Getting Any Sleep Anytime Soon.

So…

…I Sat Down At My Desk…

…And I Began Working On This Post.

And Now…

…Since It’s Pretty Much Complete…

…I’m Going To Get It Finalized…

…And Published…

…And THEN I’ll Crawl Back Under The Covers.

Sleep Sweet, My Peeps.

Sleep Sweet, Indeed.
