My Morning Mixes: No Coolin’ Down, Just Jammin’ It HARD!

Since It’s Very Brisk Outside This Morning…

…I Decided Not To Fool Around With My Walkin’ Playlist.

I Didn’t Wanna Freeze Me Arse Toooo Much…

…So I Just Loaded-Up On Jammin’ Tunage!

I Tried To Keep My Pace UP UP UP…

…And I Accomplished This With Great Personal Efficiency!

I Led Off With A Double-Shot Of…

DEPECHE MODE

…With…

PHOTOGRAPHIC (Live)”

…And…

SHOUT (Live)”

Both Original Versions Are Off Of DM‘s Debut Album…

Next-Up Was Just A Fun Little Jam Called…

POUR SOME SUGAR ON ME

by DEF LEPPARD

…Which Some Of Y’all Might Remember.

((*wink wink*))

It Does Have A Nasty Habit Of Being Played A Little Too Often For My Taste, At Times.

BUT…

…This Morning…

…It Just Felt Like It Had A Place On My Walk.

And So…

…Well…

…It Did.

πŸ˜‰

I Kicked Myself (and my pace) WAY UP With The Next Jam…

DARUDE‘s

SANDSTORM

…A Song That Holds A Very Special Place In My Little World.

It Was Actually My OFFICIAL SONG With Someone Else, Many Many Moons Ago.

I Didn’t Pick-It To Be Our Song…

…But I Was Overruled.

Don’t That Just Go ‘N Figure!?

Sheesh.

Nevertheless…

…It’s A Damn Fine Jam…

…ESPECIALLY When You Wanna Walk FASTER!

πŸ™‚Β Β Β Β  πŸ™‚

FIND ANOTHER FOOL

by QUARTERFLASH

…Was Up Next.

I Know, I Know…

…How Do You Follow…

DARUDE

…With…

QUARTERFLASH

?!?

This Is MY Playlist, Dammit, So Don’t Go Hatin’!

(teehehe)

πŸ˜€

Moving On…

…I Threw-Down Some…

POISON

…Next, With…

UNSKINNY BOP

…A Song That Simply Screams FUN…

…And It’s A Damn Fine Walkin’ Tune.

Damn Fine, Indeed.

πŸ˜€Β Β Β Β  πŸ˜€

I Was Hurtin’ For A Touch Of…

PETER GABRIEL

…So I Popped-On His VERY Underrated Jam…

STEAM

…Which Is Also One Of His Most Totally Forgotten Jams.

Do You Remember It?!

See.

I Didn’t Think So.

Loser.

πŸ˜‰Β Β Β Β  πŸ˜€Β Β Β Β  πŸ˜‰

I’d Been In The Mood For…

EVE 6

…Alllll Morning Looooong…

…So I Treated Myself To Their Best Bester BESTEST JAM…

INSIDE OUT

!! !! !!

WOOT!!!

πŸ˜€

πŸ˜€

I Was Totally In Cruise Mode At This Point…

…Though My Ears Were Starting To Hurt From The Coooool Breezes.

So I Decided To Stay In Cruise Mode And Point My Cruise More Homeward.

Following That Nifty Piece Of Ear-Candy, I Went Ahead And Popped On A True Classic Favorite…

LITTLE GREEN BAG

by GEORGE BAKER SELECTION

…And That Did Put A Little More Wiggle In My Walk, I Won’t Deny It.

Mainly Because I Can’t.

I’m Sure Someone Would Have Called Me On It Had I Decided To Play It Cool.

But I’m Not Cool.

Therefore, I Don’t Play Cool.

I Just Am.

What That “Am” Is, However, Remains A Mystery To Me.

I Sincerely Haven’t The Foggiest.

πŸ™‚

I Was Only A Couple Blocks From The House When My Final Jam Was Selected.

I Didn’t Wanna Cool Down, But I’d Been Jammin’ It HARD…

…So I Compromised With Myself.

I Went With A Song That Wasn’t Really A Cool Down…

…Just An EXCEPTIONAL PIECE Of TUNAGE…

PLACEBO‘s

PURE MORNING

!!! !!! !!!

πŸ˜€Β Β Β Β  πŸ˜€Β Β Β Β  πŸ˜€

By The Time I Hit The Front Steps, I Was READY To Be INSIDE Ye Ole Homestead.

And As I’m Completing This Little Post…

…I Think My Ears Have FINALLY THAWED!

The Rest Of Me Was Pretty Much Fine Already.

But O.M.G. My Ears!

I’ll Have To Remember To Wear Something On Them Next Time.

As I’ve Already Been Told Today…

You Should’ve Worn A Sock-Hat.

😦

I Know I Should Have.

I Just Look Better In Baseball-Caps.

πŸ˜‰

Hope You’re ALL Having A Fine Morning…

…And I Hope Your Friday Goes Just Jim Dandy!

You DID Know It’s FRIDAY…

…Right?!

Good, Good.

Just Checking.

One Can Never Be Toooo Sure, Ya Know?!

Sure You Do.

My Morning Mixes: Bourbon, Scotch AND Beer? On A Monday Morning? OKAY!!!

Good Morning, My Peeps.

πŸ™‚

How Goes The Day So Far?

Too Early To Tell, Eh?

That’s What I Was Thinking, Also…

…Even Though My Day Is Already Hours Old.

How’d Ya Sleep?

I Gotcha, I Gotcha.

Me, Also.

It Took Nothing To Fall Asleep…

…And Everything To Stay Asleep.

In The End…

…Staying Asleep Failed, Yet Again.

Oh Well, Right?!

RIGHT!!

πŸ˜€

Well…

…We’re Not Here To Discuss Sleep, Anyway.

Are We?!

We’re Not, Right?!

Ah.

Good.

RIGHT!!

Let’s Talk A Little Music, Then!!

Good Plan, My Peeps, Good Plan!!

πŸ˜‰

WEEELLL…

…Temperature Wise…

…It’s Damn Near PERFECT, Outside.

That’s A VERY Good Thing.

We’ve Had Some Brisk Little Mornings Of Late…

…So Today Was Simply Made For Walkin’!

πŸ™‚

My Morning Mix Began With A Classic.

Which Classic Would That Be?!

GEORGE THOROGOOD & THE DESTROYERS

…And Their Version Of…

ONE BOURBON, ONE SCOTCH, ONE BEER

πŸ˜€

You Know I Like To Get My Walks Going Great…

…And This Morning Was No Different.

So Why Not Kick-It-Off With An 8 1/2 Minute Jam?!

Exactly, My Peeps, Exactly!

Why Not, INDEED!

πŸ˜‰

I Then Slipped Into Some…

…OH YEAH…

ALICE COOPER

…With His Charming Little Ditty…

TEENAGE FRANKENSTEIN

πŸ˜€

I Chose That One Because It Makes Me Happy To Do So.

TEENAGE FRANKENSTEIN

…Always Makes Me Think Of My Nephew, As He’s A Big Fan Of It, And That Generally Gives Me The Power To Pick-Up My Pace.

πŸ˜‰

I Went For A Double-Dose Of…

DEPECHE MODE

…After That.

I Went Old-School When I Hit-Up…

STORIES OF OLD

…And Then Went Oldest-School ((DEPECHE MODE Wise)) With…

JUST CAN’T GET ENOUGH

πŸ˜€Β Β Β Β Β Β  πŸ˜€

Trust Me, My Peeps, Those Two, Back-To-Back, Are A Wondrous Walking Combination, Fo SHO!

πŸ˜‰

I Decided To Stay In The Same Neighborhood…

…Musically Speaking…

…When I Went For A Little…

ERASURE

…And Their Immortal ((If You’re An ERASURE Fan)) Jam…

VICTIM OF LOVE

πŸ˜€

Let Me Guess…

…You’ve Never Heard The Words ERASURE And IMMORTAL In The Same Sentence?!

I Kinda Figured That One, Kids, I Really REALLY Did.

πŸ˜‰

TOM PETTY

…Was Up Next, As I Wanted To Slow-Down The Pace Just A Touch.

So I Went With…

FREE FALLIN’

πŸ˜€

That One Has Been A Fave-Fave Since Its Initial-Release…

…And Has Yet To Get Old To Me.

That’s What Great Tunage Is Supposed To Do, Right?!

RIGHT!!

πŸ˜‰

I Wanted To Pick-Up The Pace Again, But Not TOO MUCH…

…And I Had The Perfect Song In Mind…

TOO SHY

by KAJAGOOGOO

πŸ˜€

That’s Another Fave-Fave With Major “Lasting-Powers” Fo SHO!

It’s A Song That Always Makes Me Smile…

…And It’s Also A Perfect Walkin’ Jam!!

πŸ˜‰

I Had My Next Jam Already Picked-Out, As I Knew I Wanted To Kick The Pace WAY UP Before I Went Into My Cool-Down/Cruising Mode.

What Was It, You Ask?!

PART-TIME LOVER

…From The Man Himself…

STEVIE WONDER

πŸ˜€

You Must Remember, Kiddies, I’m A Child Of The ’80s…

…And That One Is My All-Time FAVE From Mr. WONDER!!

He’s Had A Ton Of Fantastic Jams…

…But That One Reminds Me Of MY OWN Past, As I Remember When It Was BRAND-NEW!!

πŸ˜‰

Finally…

…It Was Time To Cool-It-Down Before Calling-It-Quits.

I Ended-Up Selecting A Song I Hadn’t Listened To In Quite A While.

It Simply Fit What I Was Wanting To Do So Well.

My Final Jam Of The Morning Mix, Was…

LET IT BE

by THE BEATLES

πŸ˜€

Talk About A GREAT Early Morning Stroll, My Peeps.

GREAT, Indeed.

πŸ˜‰

Have ANY Of YOU Been On A Morning Walk-About?!

I’m Sure SOMEONE Has To Have Done So!

If You Have

Did You Jam-It As You Kicked-About?!

WHAT/WHO DID YOU LISTEN TO?!

I’d Love To Know, Fo SHO Fo SHO!!!

πŸ˜€Β Β Β Β Β Β  πŸ˜€Β Β Β Β Β Β  πŸ˜€

My Morning Mixes: From An “URGENT” Emergency To The Sounds “HIGHER LOVE”!!!

Since I Recently Haven’t Gone For A Nice, Long Walk…

…And Because It’s Damned Comfy Outside, Today…

…I Decided To Hit-The-Road And Be-Bop Around Town A Bit.

So…

…Of Course…

…Some Great Tunage Was Totally Called-For.

What Exactly Did I Jam To, This Morning?!

WELL…

…LET ME TELL YOU!!!

πŸ˜‰

My Walk Began With A Classic Jam Favorite…

URGENT

by FOREIGNER

…As I’ve Gotta Kick-Off Every Walk With A Favorite Jam, Ya Know?!

SURE YOU DO!

πŸ˜‰

I Decided To Stick With Classic Favorites, And Played…

ABRACADABRA

by The STEVE MILLER BAND

…Which Is A Song That Has Yet To Ever Fail In Bringing A Smile To My Face. Love Me Some STEVE MILER BAND, Fo SHO!

πŸ™‚

Since I Was Already In A Good Mood, And Moving Quite Well This Morning…

…I Went With A Little Bit Of…

WARREN ZEVON

…And His Nifty Little Number…

EXCITABLE BOY

…Which Is Another Smile Inducing Jam!

πŸ˜€

Now…

…With The Next Song…

…I’m Likely To Catch A Little Flack.

I Started Jamming To…

LEAN ON ME

…But Not The Classic-Version…

…No…

…It’s The Cover Version…

by CLUB NOUVEAU

!!!

(...hahahaha I Know... I'm Lame... My Bad...)

πŸ˜‰

Up Next Was Another Classic-Classic Fave-Fave…

ONCE BITTEN, TWICE SHY

by GREAT WHITE

…Which Is Simply One Of The Most Fun Jams I’m Proud To Say I Own!

πŸ˜€

The Next Song Is Something Special.

A Personal Favorite That Honestly Doesn’t Get The Recognition It Truly Deserves.

I’m Talking About…

VICTIM OF LOVE

by ERASURE

!!! !!!

It’s A Song I Truly Love, And It Can Really Get You Motivated While On A Walk-About!

Totally!!

πŸ˜€

The Song Up Next Is One I Suppose You’d Have To Call A “Guilty Pleasure” Fo Sho…

SHANDI

by KISS

…HAHAHAHA!

Yeah.

It IS A Song I Do Greatly Enjoy…

…But It IS A Rather Lame Little Jam, Nevertheless.

Hey, BITE ME!

I Like It.

I Listened To It.

It Gets A Mention.

Leave It At That, My Peeps.

Sheesh.

πŸ˜‰

I Followed Up That One With A Truly Classic Jam…

JOURNEY‘s

ONLY THE YOUNG

…Which Is One Of Their Faster Jams, Fo SHO!

It’s A Wonderful Motivational Tune, My Peeps…

…And One I Can Easily Recommend To Y’all If You’re In Serious Need Of Said Motivation.

πŸ˜‰

I Decided To Stark Kicking-It Into A Lower Gear After Hearing Some JOURNEY…

…And I Went With…

96 TEARS

by QUESTION-MARK And THE MYSTERIANS

…Which Is A Sweet Little Jam, Fo SHO, And One That’s Easy To Enjoy!

Gotta Love The Organ Being Played Throughout It, Of Course!

πŸ™‚

And Then…

…Finally…

…I Was Starting To Come Close To The End Of My Little Stroll…

…So I Went With Some Quality…

DEPECHE MODE

…For My Cool-Down…

…And I Played…

HIGHER LOVE (LIVE)”

…Which Is One Of My Favorite Jams By DEPECHE MODE…

…Though It’s One Most People Have Never Heard Of, Let Alone Heard.

But Trust Me, My Peeps, It’s A Wonderful Song To Cool-Down With.

FO FLIPPIN’ SHO!!!

πŸ˜€Β Β Β Β  πŸ˜€Β Β Β Β  πŸ˜€

And That Is, As They Say, That.

A Loverly Walk-About…

…With Some Wonderful WONDERFUL Tunage To Keep Me Moving!

Now I’m Curious As To What The Rest Of The Day Shall Have In-Store For Me.

Hopefully Something AWESOME…

…Though I Try Not To Get My Hopes-Up, Ya Know Ya Know?!

SURE YOU DO!!!

πŸ˜€

L8r L8r, My Loving Tater-Tots!!

PEACE!!!

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

by DURAN DURAN

!!! !!!

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

A VIEW TO A KILL

…Remains My Favorite JAMES BOND Theme Song EVER.

Period.

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!!!

πŸ˜‰

πŸ˜€ Β  Β  πŸ˜€ Β  Β  πŸ˜€ Β  Β  πŸ˜€

My Morning Mixes: Just Jammit, Baby!

Good Morning, Kiddies.

Sleep Well?

Yeah.

Me Neither.

Oh Well, Right?!

RIGHT!!!

Since I Couldn’t Sleep, I Decided To Hit The Pavement And Go For A Morning Walk-About.

It Felt Good To Get Out There And Wander ’round A Bit.

I, Of Course, Had Ye Ole Trusty MP3Player With Me.

He Provided Me With A Wonderful Morning Soundtrack To My Aimless Wanders.

I Always, As You Know, Try To Kick-Off My Walks With A Great Jam To Get The Blood And Juices Flowing.

So…

…For That Purpose…

…I Began The Walk With…

INSIDE OUT

by EVE 6

!!! !!!! !!!

Trust Me, My Peeps…

…It’s ALWAYS A Grand Tune When Beginning Anything Physical.

πŸ˜€

As That One Began To End, I Went Ahead And Pushed My “Play-All” Button.

The Second Song Was…

WHAT A DAY THAT WAS (LIVE)”

by TALKING HEADS

!!! !!!! !!!

That One Is ALWAYS A Person Fave, So I Picked-Up My Pace Even More-So.

πŸ˜€

The Next (randomly selected) Jam Was…

LINGER

by THE CRANBERRIES

!!! !!!! !!!

Admittedly, This One Slowed My Pace A Touch.

I Love The Song, But I Really Wasn’t Quite Ready For A Cool-Down-Period…

…So I Only Listened To This One For A Minute Or Two.

πŸ™‚

I Went Ahead And Advanced To The Next Song, Which Was…

MICHAEL JACKSON‘s

BLACK Or WHITE

!!! !!!! !!!

Now THAT ONE Seriously Stepped-Up My Pace Again, And I Went Into My Cruise Mode!

If There’s Anything I Can Tell You About MR. JACKSON…

…It’s That His Music Was MADE For WALKIN’, Fo Flippin’ SHO!!!

πŸ˜€

As MR. JACKSON Ended…

…I Immediately Went Into…

AIN’T WASTIN’ TIME NO MORE

by The ALLMAN BROTHERS BAND

!!! !!!! !!!

When You’re Ready To Get Yourself Into A Nice Cruise-Mode…

…It’s Hard To Beat That Jam.

The ALLMAN BROTHERS BAND Is Damned Near PERFECT For Walkin’ ’round…

…Especially When You Have No Real Destination In Mind.

πŸ˜‰

The Next Song Was A Bit Of A Surprise, Actually.

It Was…

MIKE POST‘s

THEME From MAGNUM P.I.

!!! !!!! !!!

I Have My Brother To Thank For That One.

At Least, I’m Pretty Sure I Do.

I Know I Didn’t Put That One On My Player.

HOWEVER…

…It Was A Totally PLEASANT Surprise!

Talk About An Instrumental Theme That’s All About Energy!

It Totally Picked-Up My Pace, Once Again!

Cool Beans, Fo SHO, Kids!

πŸ˜€

Mr. MP3Player Went Back To…

TALKING HEADS

…With Their Iconic Cover Of…

TAKE ME TO THE RIVER

!!! !!!! !!!

Now…

…Once Again…

…This Slowed My Pace A Little, But This Time I Didn’t Care.

Their Version Of This Classic Jam Has ALWAYS Had The Ability To Make Me Wanna Watch A Striptease.

Not Joking, My Peeps.

In Fact, It’s THE GREATEST SONG EVER In Regard To Performing A Striptease.

Trust Me, I’ve Had A Couple People Perform One For Me…

…And This Is The Song I Requested They Do It To!

(HAHAHAHAHAHA)

That Might Be A Touch TOO MUCH INFO, So I’ll Stop That Part Of This Bloggin’ing Right There.

But It DID Make Me Smile A Bundle, Fo SHO!

πŸ˜‰ Β  πŸ˜€ Β  πŸ˜‰

I Decided To Personally Select The Next Song, Since I Wanted To Make Sure The Pace Was Picked-Back-Up Before I Went Into My Cool-Down-Period.

For Said Purpose…

…I Went With…

LOOKIN’ OUT MY BACK DOOR

by CREEDENCE CLEARWATER REVIVAL

!!! !!!! !!!

If You’ve Heard This One, Then You Know I Set An Almost Furious Pace For Myself.

It’s A FAST Little Number, Ya Know?!

SURE YOU DO!!!

Always A True Classic Fave Of Faves.

πŸ˜€

I Decided It Was Time For The Cool-Down-Period Following That Speedy Jam.

SO…

…I Hit-Up A Classic Among Classics…

NOBODY KNOWS YOU WHEN YOU’RE DOWN AND OUT (UNPLUGGED)”

by ERIC CLAPTON

!!! !!!! !!!

It’s Seriously Hard To Top Ole “Slow Hand” CLAPTON, My Peeps.

Like Totally Seriously Hard.

But I Was Going To Try To At Least Match The Slower Pace I’d Just Set.

πŸ™‚

So…

…I Went With…

ALL APOLOGIES

by NIRVANA

!!! !!!! !!!

For ME…

…This Song Worked-Out For Me PERFECTLY.

There Was About 20-Seconds Left Of This One When I Stepped Onto My Driveway.

NICE!!!

πŸ˜€

As You Can Well Imagine…

…Today’s Walk Was VERY Awesome Opossum, My Peeps!

It Felt WONDERFUL…

…And The Jams Couldn’t Have Been Much Better.

It’s FRIDAY, Kids!

The Weekend Is Upon Us!

Will YOU Be Planning A Little Walk-About, Soon?!

If So…

…GREAT!!!

Just Make Sure You Bring Your Tunes Along With You.

It’ll Help Like Nobody’s Business, Kiddies.

That’s A Promise…

…And A BIG Ole FO SHO!!!

πŸ˜‰

πŸ˜€

πŸ™‚

My Morning Mixes: Friday, Sweet Friday!

Good Morning, My Peeps.

πŸ™‚

Hope You’re All Swell.

Me?

Can’t Complain, I Suppose.

Still Got A Bad Headache.

That Part Ain’t So Good.

Nor Is The Muscle Strain On My Right Side.

Otherwise?

Well…

…Otherwise I’m Pretty Hunky-Groovy’ish.

I’m Sure The Headache Is Because Of The Freakin’ Weather.

T’Is Rainy And Humid.

The Air Feels Thick Enough To Cut With A Knife.

No Foolin’, Kiddies.

No Foolin’, Indeed.

HOWEVER…

…Regardless Of Said Headache…

…Or Of Said Muscle Strain…

…Or Of Said Weather…

…I Still Decided To Head-Out On A Walk-About.

I Hadn’t Gone Out-&-About For The Past Couple Days…

…So I Wanted To Make Damn Sure I Went Out-&-About Today.

For Today’s Walk…

…I Didn’t Do The Random Shuffling Of My Walkin’ Tunes.

Instead, I Made-Up A Little Playlist.

Listed Below Are The Songs I Ended-Up Jamming To This Morning.

… … …

I Began The Walk With…

SPECIAL K

by PLACEBO

…Since It’s A Pounding Jam Jam Jam-Type Jam.

It Totally Works At Getting The Blood Pumping…

…And At Getting The Feet Moving…

…Fo SHO Fo SHO, My Peeps.

πŸ˜€

The Second Song On My Playlist Was An Old-School Favorite…

MY BEST FRIEND’S GIRL

by THE CARS

Always A Great Jam, My Peeps.

πŸ˜‰

And Then, I Went With…

NOTORIOUS

by DURAN DURAN

…Which Is A Totally Fun Jam…

…And It Has All The Power One Needs To Get Those Feet A Movin’ Movin’ Movin’!

πŸ˜€

I Then Took The Tunage In A Totally Different Direction With…

DON’T LET ME SLIDE

by TEDESCHI TRUCKS BAND

…Since I Just Knew I’d Be In Cruise Mode By This Point In The Walk.

πŸ™‚

QUARTERFLASH

…Was Up Next With…

CRUISIN’ WITH THE DEUCE

…One Of The Best Songs On The Whole Album!

πŸ˜€

I Followed Them Up With A Little…

CREEDENCE CLEARWATER REVIVAL

πŸ™‚

πŸ˜‰

I Went With…

…Next.

Always A Pretty Nifty Jam, Kiddies.

Wouldn’t You Agree?

Sure You Would!!

πŸ™‚

I Hit-Up Some…

TALKING HEADS

…Next, With The Live Version Of Their Totally Awesomely Fun Fun Jam…

WHAT A DAY THAT WAS

…Which Is/Was/Always-Will-Be A Personal Favorite!

It Gets You To Steppin’, My Peeps, Fo SHO!

πŸ˜€

I Was Nearing The End Of My Stroll At This Point.

I Knew I Had Time For One OR Two More Jams…

…So I Decided To Kick-It With…

KISS

…And Their Totally Classic Jam…

ROCK BOTTOM

…Which Is Totally My Fave-Fave KISS Jam Of ALL-TIME!

πŸ˜€

And Then, Finally, I Went Into Cool-Down-Mode.

What Better Jam To Cool Down To Than…

BLUE DRESS

by DEPECHE MODE

…Which Is (likely) The Most Forgotten Tune On Their Biggest Album, VIOLATOR.

And That’s A Shame, My Peeps.

It’s A Very Cool Song, Fo FLIPPIN’ SHO!!!

πŸ™‚

… … …

ANWAY, Kiddies…

…I Think It’s About Time For Me To Jump Into The Shower.

So…

…Y’all Should Do Your Best To Take It Easy AND Take Care Of Yourselves.

It’s FRIDAY, Ya Know, So Taking It Easy AND Taking Care Of Yourself Is A Total MUST DO.

Think Y’all Can Handle That?!

SURE YOU CAN!!!

πŸ˜€

Enjoy The Day, Kids.

THE WEEKEND HAS ARRIVED!!!

Well…

…Almost.

πŸ˜‰

My Morning Mixes: From A “HOLY DIVER” To A “JUDAS”

Good Morning, My Peeps.

Wow…

…It Has Already Been A Very Long Day.

I Was Rudely Awakened By Myself Around 4A.M. And Haven’t Felt Like Doing Much Since Then.

My Body Aches.

My Head Aches.

When I Awoke…

…My First Thought Was…

"Who The Hell Ordered This Hangover?"

…Until I Realized…

"You Didn't Do Anything That Should Prompt A Hangover, Dude."

And That’s True…

…I Didn’t Do Anything.

So Why The Groggy Feeling?

Why The Morning Surprise Of Feeling As Though I Had Awakened Within A Fog?

I Simply Do Not Know.

It Is…

…However…

…The Second Time This Has Happened In The Past Three Days.

(*shrugs*)
(*sighs*)

I Simply Dunno, Ya Know Ya Know?!

ANYWAY…

…Onto Better Things.

The Morning Walk-About Was Handled Quickly Enough.

I Wanted To Get Out And Move…

…And Did My Best To Feed That Want.

I Didn’t Get Very Far From The House…

…But There Are Enough Side-Streets And Such…

…So I Was Able To Zigzag About.

The Walk Was Short…

…Sweet…

…And Loaded With Great Tunage.

I Decided To Switch-Up My Morning Method, Also.

I Let All The Music Be Decided By Random Chance EXCEPT For My Final Song.

That Song Was A Personal Pre-Selection.

The Walk Began At Random With…

HOLY DIVER

by DIO

πŸ™‚

It’s A Classic Jam I’ve Known (almost) My Whole Life…

…So It Was A Pleasant Surprise When “Mr. Shuffle” Decided Upon It.

That Guy Has Fun Taste…

…Sometimes.

πŸ˜‰

Anyway…

…That Carried Over To The Second Song…

LIVE AND LET DIE

by PAUL McCARTNEY And WINGS

πŸ™‚

…AND…

…To The Third Song…

“(JUST LIKE) STARTING OVER

by JOHN LENNON

πŸ™‚

Now…

…By This Point In The Walk…

…I Feel Nadda But High Praise For “Mr. Shuffle”…

…As He’s Hittin’ Me Hard With Quality Jams.

Next Up Was…

THE BAD TOUCH

by BLOODHOUND GANG

πŸ™‚

…And Then…

RAISE YOUR HANDS

by BON JOVI

πŸ™‚

Awesome Jams, I Must Say.

Some Of My Fave Faves Were Popping-Up Today.

It’s Easy To Derive MotivationalΒ Sustenance From Something When It’s Making You Happy To Be Doing What You’re Doing.

I’m One Who’s Not Generally In The Best Of Moods…

…But This Morning’s Walk Was Different.

Fired Back At Me Next Was…

UP AROUND THE BEND

by CREEDENCE CLEARWATER REVIVAL

πŸ™‚

…Which Is Always A Plus Plus Jam, Fo SHO!

As That One Was Ending…

…I Quickly Pushed The Next Button…

…And A Little…

DAVID BOWIE

…With…

SLOW BURN

…Was Laid Upon Me.

πŸ™‚

Now That, To Me, Is A Killer Great Jam.

I Know A Lot Of People Who Entirely Did Not Like That DAVID BOWIE Album…

…But You Can Rest Assured I Wasn’t One Of Those.

I Can GENERALLY Find A Couple Two Or Three Jams On Almost Any Album That I’d Call Worth A Listen.

ANYWAY…

…Moving On, Moving On…

…Up Next Was…

LONGVIEW

by GREEN DAY

πŸ™‚

…And Quickly Thereafter Was…

L.O.V.

by FITZ AND THE TANTRUMS

πŸ™‚

The Final Song Of The Morning…

…As The Headline Suggests…

…Was…

JUDAS

(LIVE)

by DEPECHE MODE

πŸ™‚

I Wanted Something Slower To Calm Down With As I Ended My Little Wandering…

…And This Was The Song I’d Pre-Selected For Today.

It’s A True Gem Of A Song…

…And One…

…Sadly…

…Most People Have Never Heard…

…Nor Have They Ever Heard Of It.

They Know The Name “JUDAS” But They Have/Had No Clue It Was Ever A Song.

ANYWAY, My Peeps…

…It Was A Nice Walk-About…

…And I Was A Hot-&-Sweaty Mess When I Cruised Back To The Ranch.

I’ve Been Trying To Relax Since…

…But Am Having Trouble Doing So.

SO SO SO…

…I Decided That, Perhaps, A Little Blogging Would Aide In My Quest For Relax Glory.

And It Appears To Be Working…

…At Least A Tad.

At This Point…

…I’ll Take A Tad, Fo Flippin’ SHO, Kiddies.

πŸ˜‰

Hope All Is Well In Your Worlds, Cats AND Kittens.

Things Appear To Be, At The Least, Somewhat Functional In Mine.

I’ll Take That, Also.

YOU KNOW IT!!!

πŸ˜€

My Morning Mixes: Bound For Glory? Could Be! =)

Good Morning, My Peeps.

πŸ™‚

T’Is A VERY Warm Start To A Sunday, That’s Fo SHO.

Like They Say, Though, It’s The Humidity That’s A Killer.

(hehehe)

You’ll Be Pleased To Know I Hit-The-Sack VERY EARLY Last Night.

T’Was A VERY Good Feeling To Awaken…

…Sans Alarm…

…At (almost) Exactly 5:30AM…

…And To Be In A Damned Decent Mood About It.

I’m An Early Riser, Yes.

It’s A Nasty Habit That Has Yet To Dissipate.

In Fact…

…I Think It Has Become Worse.

Is That A Sign I’m Getting Old?

Reminds Me Of A Song By The Band…

MORPHINE

…Called…

EARLY TO BED

…In Which They State…

Early To Bed…

…And Early To Rise…

…Makes A Man Or Woman…

…Miss Out On The Night Life.

(hehehe)

That Song Isn’t Part Of This Edition Of “MY MORNING MIXES”…

…But Perhaps It’ll Pop-Up Again At Some Point.

πŸ˜‰

ANYWAY…

…Moving On, Moving On.

This Morning’s Walk-About Was EXCELLENT, My Peeps.

The Ole Hometown Was More Like Ye Ole Ghost-Town.

I Didn’t See One Other Person Wandering About.

Only Saw 4 Vehicles In Motion, Actually.

It Was Very Still.

It Was Very Quiet.

It Was Very Very…

…Hmm…

…Well…

…Eerie?

πŸ™‚

Upon Leaving The House…

…I Decided It Was The Perfect Morning For A Great Jam.

The Walk Began With…

BOUND FOR GLORY

by TEDESCHI TRUCKS BAND

πŸ˜€

If You’ve Not Heard Anything From Them Yet…

…Y0u Really REALLY Should Treat Yourselves, My Bros & Sises!

TEDESCHI TRUCKS BAND

…Are Simply AMAZING…

…And PERFECT For Use As A Motivational Tool.

TRUST ME, My Peeps.

TRUST ME, Indeed.

I Followed Them Up With…

SURE KNOW SOMETHING

by KISS

πŸ˜€

And THEN A Little…

CHUCK BERRY

…With…

YOU NEVER CAN TELL

πŸ˜€

By This Point…

…I’m Totally In Cruise Mode.

So I Pop On…

LET’S DANCE

by DAVID BOWIE

πŸ˜€

…And Then…

DEPECHE MODE‘s

MARTYR

πŸ˜€

I Kicked It Down A Notch At This Point.

Decided I Needed Me Some…

TOM PETTY

…So I Jammed-It-Hard With…

MARY JANE’S LAST DANCE

πŸ˜€

…And Then Went Directly Into His…

FREE FALLIN’

πŸ˜€

At About This Point I Figured I Was Already Into Cool-Down-Mode.

So It Seemed Right To Kick-On…

NEVER SAY GOODBYE

by BON JOVI

πŸ˜€

And I Was Right…

…I Was Totally Into My Cool-Down-Mode…

…But I Wasn’t Finished With My Walk.

The Final Song Of The Morning Was Sort-Of Out Of Left-Field.

I Simply Pressed My MP3Player’s RANDOM-PLAY Button.

And It Fired Back At Me With…

KINGS OF MEDICINE

by PLACEBO

πŸ˜€

πŸ˜€ Β  Β  πŸ˜€

YEP YEP YEP!!!

T’Was A Wondrous Wandering, My Peeps.

I Haven’t Sweat That Much In Who Knows How Long.

I Was Ready For A Shot Of Water…

…AND A Large Cup-O-Joe…

…Upon My Return Home.

Sound Like A Damned Decent Morning To Y’all?!?

EXACTLY!!!

That’s How It FELT To ME!!!

I’ll Be Checking In With Y’all Throughout The Day, Fo SHO, My Peeps.

Until Then…

πŸ˜€

My Morning Mixes: The Short’ish List

Today, It’s A Short’ish List For One Very Simple Reason…

…ANTIBIOTICS.

.Period.

These Things Have My Stomach Screwed-Up Six-Ways-From-Sunday.

.Period Period.

Granted…

…I Did Only Get Around 3(almost)Hours Of Sleep…

…Which Is Affecting Me, Also.

But The Biggest Reason For A Short’ish List Is The Damned Antibiotics.

Instead Of Going On A Long’ish Walk…

…I Stayed Closer To The House And Just Did Laps Of The Block.

I Didn’t Wanna Be Too Far From My Own Cat-Box, Ya Know?!?

(wink wink nudge nudge)

Yep.

Exactly.

I Thought It Was A Smart Plan, Too.

ANYWAY…

…Moving On, Moving On…

…The Morning Walk Began Solidly With…

LIFE DURING WARTIME

by TALKING HEADS

…Followed-Up Quickly With A Double-Shot Of…

WESTSIDE CONNECTION

…Hitting Both…

BOW DOWN

…And…

GANGSTA NATION

!!! !!! !!!

Up Next Was…

WE DON’T NEED ANOTHER HERO (THUNDERDOME)”

by TINA TURNER

…And Then…

ERIC CLAPTON

…With…

AFTER MIDNIGHT

!!! !!! !!!

By This Point…

…I’m Already Questioning My Sanity For Being Out-&-About On A Walk With A Gurgling-Stomach.

I Go Ahead And Fire-Up…

NEW DRESS

by DEPECHE MODE

…All-The-While I’m Thinking About Heading Home.

Finally…

…My Stomach Wins The Minor Argument.

I Go Ahead And Kick-On…

DEPECHE MODE‘s

GET RIGHT WITH ME (LIVE)”

…And I Cut My Wheels Back Homeward.

… … … … … … …

… … …

TRUST ME, My Peeps…

…I Made The Correct Decision.

TRUST ME TRUST ME, Even.

I Did Warn You It Was A Short’ish List.

Please Don’t Feel Jipped, Kiddies.

The Jams Weren’t Big On Quantity This Morning…

…Though I’m Sure We Can Agree On Quality.

Right???

RIGHT!!!

πŸ˜€

Have A Decent Day, My Peeps.

I Shall Holla More When I Have More To Holla ’bout!

πŸ˜‰

L8r L8r!!!
