My Morning Mixes: 11 Totally Awesome Walkin’ Jams!

This Morning…

…I Felt The Need To Get-Out-There And Do Myself Right With A Nice Walk-About-Town.

Of Course…

…I Did Have My MP3Player With Me…

…Churning-Out Some Sweet Sweet Jams.

<><><>>>><><><><<<<><><>

I Got The Ole Blood Pumping By Beginning My Wandering With…

CREAM

by PRINCE

(My Favorite PRINCE Song, By-The-Way!)

!!! !!! !!!

I Then Went With…

AIN’T WASTIN’ TIME NO MORE

(A True-Blue Classic Jam If Ever There Was One!)

!!! !!! !!!

Next…

…I Went On A Run Of 80s Faves…

…Starting With…

BREAKING THE LAW

by JUDAS PRIEST

(Breakin' The Law, Breakin' The Law!)

!!! !!! !!!

…Then…

COME ON EILEEN

by DEXY’S MIDNIGHT RUNNERS

(Such A Dirty Song teehehehe)

!!! !!! !!!

…And Then…

THE REFLEX

by DURAN DURAN

(When We're Talking 80s, Does It Get More 80s Than Duran Duran?)

!!! !!! !!!

…And OF COURSE Then…

BABY HOLD ON

(Yep, I Did It, I Risked Gettin' Ole Eddie Stuck In My Brain AGAIN, But I Survived It With No Ill-Effects!)

!!! !!! !!!

…And Eventually I Went With…

WE DIDN’T START THE FIRE

When MR. JOEL Ended…

…I Decided To Go Back To…

THE ALLMAN BROTHERS BAND

…With…

FIRING LINE

(A Song Most Of You Have Likely Never Heard, But It's A Great Jam, Walking Or No Walking.)

Needless To Say, My Peeps…

…The Walk Was WONDERFUL.

I Got My Legs Good And Stretched Out (which felt great).

I Got To Sweat A Little (which I always love).

I Got To Listen To Some Totally Awesome Tunage (which is always a treat).

Sounds Like The Perfect Start To The Day, Doesn’t It?

You Know Me…

…I Shall Endeavor To Do Likewise!!!

The Song Stuck In My Head: “I WANNA GO BACK” by EDDIE MONEY (1986)

I…

…Was Listenin’ To The Radio…

…I Heard A Song…

…Remindin’ Me Of Long Ago…

…Back Then I Thought…

…That Things Were Never Gonna Change…

…It Used To Be…

…That I Never Had To Feel The Pain…

…I Know Now…

…That Things Will Never Be The Same Now…

… … …

I WANNA GO BACKWas A Hit Single For EDDIE MONEY In 1986

… … …

…I WANNA GO BACK…

…And Do It All Over…

…But I Can’t Go Back…

…I Know…

…I WANNA GO BACK…

…’Cause I’m Feelin’ So Much Older…

…But I Can’t Go Back…

…I Know…

…Oh No. …

… … …

I WANNA GO BACKIs Also Included On EDDIE MONEY‘s Greatest Hits AlbumSOUND OF MONEY

<><><>

I’m Gonna Warn You Now, My Peeps…

…This Song…

I WANNA GO BACK

by EDDIE MONEY

…Is Irritatingly Infectious.

.Period.

It’s One Of Those Songs You Hear And You’re Like…

"Oh Jeez! It's That Damned EDDIE MONEY Song! I'll Be Humming It For A Frickin' WEEK!"

And That Would Be A Very True Assessment Of The Situation.

Don’t Get Me Wrong…

…I Consider EDDIE MONEY To Be One Of My Personal Guilty Pleasures.

I Don’t Know A Lot Of Folks Who Like/Enjoy His Music, These Days.

I Do Remember Being In BREMERTON, WASHINGTON In 1999 When EDDIE MONEY Had A Concert There For The Sailors.

Tickets For The Event???

$1

.Period.

That’s Right, My Peeps.

A LIVE EDDIE MONEY CONCERT…

…For $1.

We Even Had A Little Song Going Around.

"I'VE GOT TWO-TICKETS FOR TWO-BUCKS..."

Oh Yeah…

…We’re Talking HIGH CLASS, Fo SHO!

Anyway…

…I Heard This Little Number…

I WANNA GO BACK

…During My Morning Walk.

I’m Sorry To Say It…

…But I Have Yet To Expel It From My Conscious Mind.

πŸ˜•

ALLLLLLL DAAAAAAAY LOOOOOOONG…

…I’ve Been Walking About The House Singing It To Myself.

Sometimes Out-Loud…

…Sometimes It’s Part Of My Inner-Dialogue.

Regardless Of How It’s Happening…

…The Point Is…

…IT’S HAPPENING!!!

EDDIE MONEY

…Is…

…TRULY…

…MADLY…

…DEEPLY…

…STUCK IN MY HEAD!!!

However…

…I Ain’t Gonna Bitch About It Tooooooo Much.

I Mean, Who Would Listen?

And Even If I Found Someone To Listen…

…Would They Give A Rats Ass???

NOPE.

NOT. AT. ALL. FO. SHO.

They Just Wouldn’t Want Me Singing It While I Was In Their Presence.

WHY?!?

Because, My Silly Peeps, Then THEY Would Start SINGING ALONG TOO!!!

Like I Said…

…It’s Irritatingly Infectious.

Lucky For Me, Though…

…I Do So Enjoy Some EDDIE MONEY From Time To Time.

Today…

…It’s Simply Being Forced Upon Me…

…By Me!

When There’s No-One To Blame But One’s Self…

…All You Can Do Is Stay Calm…

…Stay Cool…

…And Enjoy It While It Lasts.

Then You Just Pray It Doesn’t Last Tooo Damned Looong.

πŸ˜‰

Am I Right, My Peeps?!?

I’m Pretty Sure I’m Right.

Right???

RIGHT!!!

πŸ˜€

EIGHT Cherry-Picked Jams From An A.M. Walk-About!!!

Good Morning, Boys And Girls…

…And Those Of You Whom Are Transgender.

πŸ˜‰

It Is Absolutely GORGEOUS Outside Here, Today.

So You Just KNOW I Had To Go Wandering Around Town.

No Real Destination.

No Real Timetable.

No Real Nothing.

Just Me…

…My MP3Player…

…And My Rubber-Ball.

 (which I squeeze as I walk since I have VERY fidgety hands, but also now have a helluva grip)

It Really Felt Good, Actually.

My Legs Have Been Stiff And Sore For 3-Days, Now.

BUT…

…A Nifty Walk Does Help.

It Doesn’t Take Away The Soreness…

…But It Does Turn My Legs Into Jelly, Thus Relieving Some Of The Stiffness.

ANYWAY…

…My Music This Morning Was TOTALLY ESSENTIAL.

.PERIOD.

Without It…

…Yeah…

…I Wouldn’t Have Lasted The Entire Journey.

As I Said…

…My Legs Have Been Killing Me…

…But The Music Was Quality Enough To Keep Me Movin’ Movin’ Movin’!

Sooooooo…

…Here’s A List Of EIGHT Of My Favorite Tunes From This Morning’s Hike-About-Town.

Are You Ready For This???

GREAT!!!
