A 12-Song Music Mix I’ve Been Using For Mental / Physical / Emotional Time-Outs

If I Learned Anything From My Upbringing, It’s That Time-Outs Are Essential To Life At Times.

When The Things You’re Doing, Working-On, Etc Etc, Are Getting Tooo Personally Pressing, Or Possibly Worse, It’s Time For A Time-Out.

For ME…

…Time-Outs Were Originally Used As A Punishment.

Being ADHD Out-The-Ass…

…I Found Them Excruciating.

Sit Down.

Be Quiet.

No Doing Nothing.

No TV.

No Music.

No Video Games.

No Books.

No Nothing.

Just Sit There.

They Never Lasted Longer Than 15-Minutes, But Those Were The Worst 15-Minutes In History Each And Every Time They Were Experienced.

Now, However, They Are An Essential Tool In Learning Something…

…Anything.

At Least, Anything Deemed Important Enough To Truly Truly Remember Remember.

Period.

Now My Time-Outs Include Music.

With That One Little Tweak, I Totally Revolutionized The Whole Concept Of Personal Time-Outs For ME/MYSELF.

So, Here’s My Current Time-Out Music Mix.

“…LAST NIGHT

Thinkin’ ’bout LAST NIGHT

LAST NIGHT

Think’ ’bout LAST NIGHT…”

LAST NIGHTIs Just One Of The Many Personal Favorite Jams From The 1988 AlbumTHE TRAVELING WILBURYS VOLUME 1By THE TRAVELING WILBURYS !!!

“…I Was Feelin’ No Pain

Feelin’ Good In My Brain

I Looked In Her Eyes

They Were Full Of Surprise

LAST NIGHT

Talkin’ ’bout LAST NIGHT

LAST NIGHT

Talkin’ ’bout LAST NIGHT. …”

<<<<<>>>>>

<<<<>>>>

<<<>>>

I Awoke Very VERY Early This Morning.

No Real Rhyme Nor Reason For It.

Just Another Sleepless Night.

One Would Think I’d Be Used To It By Now.

Honestly…

…I Don’t Know If Anyone Ever Gets Used To It.

BUT…

…Regardless Of Being Used To It Or Not…

…Here I Am…

…Writing About It To Y’all.

I Had This Song In My Brain Yesterday Evening.

LAST NIGHT

by THE TRAVELING WILBURYS

It Is Simply A Fun Little Tune.

There’s Nothing Really Special About It, Other Than Who It Was Performed By.

I Just Love Love LOVE Me Some…

TRAVELING WILBURYS

…Without A Doubt And Totally Fo SHO, My Peeps.

LAST NIGHT

…Is Performed By The Whole Group…

ROY ORBISON

TOM PETTY

BOB DYLAN

JEFF LYNNE

…And…

GEORGE HARRISON

…Although Most Of The Vocal Portions Are Either…

ROY Or TOM

!!! !!!

๐Ÿ˜€

Can’t Beat That With A Stick At K-Mart, Can Ya!!?!

EXACTLY!!!

You Surely Can’t, My Peeps, You Surely Can’t.

๐Ÿ˜‰

So, When I Awoke So Damned Early This Morning…

…I Sincerely Couldn’t Wait To Get To My MP3Player So I Could Hear This Crackerjack Of A Tune.

And Now…

…I Am.

And I Have Been.

I Have The Song On Repeat, Actually.

I Didn’t Wanna Stop Listening To It Until I Finished My Post.

Call It A Personal Form Of Quality Inspiration.

๐Ÿ˜‰

ANYWAY…

…’Tis Nearing The Dawn, Now.

Who Needs Another Hot Cup-O-Joe?!

(*Points Lovingly At Self With Both Thumbs*)

THIS GUY!!!

๐Ÿ˜‰

Damn Skippy, My Drippies!!!

Hopefully This Will Help Your Morning A Little Bit.

It’s Just Something That Made Me Smile…

…And I Thought It Could Do The Same For Y’all.

I Hope I Was Right!

“Nobody Does It Better… Makes Me Feel Sad For The Rest…”

“…Nobody Does It Half As Good As You

Baby, You’re The Best…”

“…I Wasn’t Looking

But Somehow You Found Me

I Tried To Hide From Your Love-Light

But Like Heaven Above Me

THE SPY WHO LOVED ME

Is Keeping All My Secrets Safe Tonight. …”

CARLY SIMON

NOBODY DOES IT BETTER (THE SPY WHO LOVED ME)”

(1977)

<<<{*}>>>

So I’ve Oddly Had This Song On The Brain Alllllll Daaaaaay Long.

It Was The First Song I Really Wanted To Hear When I Awoke…

…And I’m Listening To It As I Type This, Now.

It Is A Truly Wonderful Song, Yes, But It’s More Than That.

This Song Was Also On-Board To Usher In A Whole New Era Of JAMES BOND

…So To Speak.

THE SPY WHO LOVED ME

…Was THE BOND FLICK That Firmly Cemented…

ROGER MOORE

…Into The Lead Role.

THE SPY WHO LOVED ME

…Is An Exceptional Film, And One Of The All-Time Greats…

…But Would It Have Been So WITHOUT This Glorious Theme Song?!

Honestly, I’m Not So Sure.

I Love The Film.

There’s No Question Of That.

BUT…

…One Of My Favorite Parts Of The Whole Flick Is Watching The Opening-Credits.

WHY?!

Because I Love Seeing The Name…

ROGER MOORE

…Coming Along With The Tune Of…

NOBODY DOES IT BETTER

by CARLY SIMON

!!! !!! !!!

I Actually Get Schoolboy Goosebumps When It Happens!

And It Happens Each And Every Time!

I’ve Never Honestly Understood Why.

The Only Other Times This Has Ever Happened Because Of A Movie Was…

…Oh Yeah…

…OTHER BOND FLICKS!!!

FOR YOUR EYES ONLY

…My Fave Fave Flick Of The Whole BOND Series With A Song I Simply Love…

…Or…

A VIEW TO A KILL

…Yet Another Favorite BOND Flick With A WONDERFUL Opening Song!!!

And On And On AND ON!!!

HA!

I Wonder What It Is?!

What Is It About Seeing BOND And Hearing A Great Song That Can Make Me Just Go Gooey?!

I Dunno.

I Just Dunno.

But I Will Say This…

…It Happened Again Last Night While I Watched…

SKYFALL

…And Sang Along With…

ADELE

!!! !!! !!!

OF COURSE OF COURSE, Fo SHO Fo SHO!!!

I’d Appreciate YOUR THOUGHTS, My Peeps.

WHAT IS IT?!

WHAT IS IT ABOUT BOND And A GREAT OPENING THEME That Gets Us All A Goin‘!?!?!?!?!

ANY THOUGHTS, My Peeps?!

ANY THOUGHTS AT ALL?!

๐Ÿ˜€ย ย ย ย ย ย  ๐Ÿ˜‰ย ย ย ย ย ย  ๐Ÿ˜€

When It Comes To This Type/Style Of Music…

…Most Folks Areย Aghast Upon Discovering I Enjoy It.

With My Quiet…

…Reserved…

…Geeky Nature…

…Most Folks Simply Never See It Coming When I Make Statements Like…

Boy That Barry Manilow Has A Sweet Voice… And So Does Rob Zombie!

๐Ÿ˜•

Yeah.

Like I Said.

Most Folks Never See It Coming.

I Was In High School When This Song…

MORE HUMAN THAN HUMAN

by WHITE ZOMBIE

…Was Released In 1995.

It Was A Rare Occasion When Something Harder…

(Music Wise, My Peeps!)

…Made Its Way Into My Vehicle AND Onto My CD Player.

The Hardest Thing I Was Listening To At The Time Was Some Classic KISS Tunage.

Think “REVENGE” Album KISS, M’Kay?!

But…

MORE HUMAN THAN HUMAN

…Was An Exception.

Heard It Once…

…And IMMEDIATELY Loved Loved LOVED IT!!

Needless To Say…

…It Currently Resides On My MP3Player.

It’s A Great Great GREAT Morning Walkin’ Tune…

…And It’s TOTALLY A Wonderful Drivin’ Tune!!

Now…

…I Know, My Peeps…

…Music From…

WHITE ZOMBIE

…Isn’t How Everyone Begins Their Morning.

I Grant AND Accept That.

However…

…I Think You Should At Least TRY It.

I’m Not Asking You To Eat A Giant Bowl Of Raw Bacon, Kids.

I’m Simply Suggesting A Quality Jam That Sincerely Deserves More Sweet Sweet Lovin’.

I Can’t Hear It…

…Anywhere…

…Ever…

…Without Cracking A Smile AND Singing Along.

It’s A Cool Jam.

It’s Totally Awesome, Actually.

It’s Guaranteed To Get The Ole Blood Pumpin’, My Peeps, That’s Fo SHO!!

Tell Ya What, Kiddies…

…Y’all Give It A Go…

…Then Let Me Know How It All Went.

Trust Me…

…If You Want Some Quality Wake-Up Tunage…

…You Could Do A LOT Worse Than…

WHITE ZOMBIE

…For Realz!!

And Now, I Must Leave You To Go Reheat This Coffee.

Please Take Good Care Of You For Me, My Peeps.

Ya Know…

…Since I Can’t Do So.
