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

🙂

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.

😉

Anyway…

…That Carried Over To The Second Song…

LIVE AND LET DIE

by PAUL McCARTNEY And WINGS

🙂

…AND…

…To The Third Song…

“(JUST LIKE) STARTING OVER

by JOHN LENNON

🙂

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

🙂

…And Then…

RAISE YOUR HANDS

by BON JOVI

🙂

Awesome Jams, I Must Say.

Some Of My Fave Faves Were Popping-Up Today.

It’s Easy To Derive Motivational 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

🙂

…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.

🙂

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

🙂

…And Quickly Thereafter Was…

L.O.V.

by FITZ AND THE TANTRUMS

🙂

The Final Song Of The Morning…

…As The Headline Suggests…

…Was…

JUDAS

(LIVE)

by DEPECHE MODE

🙂

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.

😉

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!!!

😀

If You’re An Avid Walker… …These 7 Essential Classics Belong On Your MP3Player. Period.

Alright, My Peeps…

…You’re All Very Well Aware By Now That Going For A Walk Is My Primary Means Of Both EXERCISE And MENTAL/EMOTIONAL Downtime.

I Get Out There…

…I Slap On My Tunage…

…And I Go For It.

Sometimes…

…I’m Walking For Distance.

Other Times…

…I’m Walking For A Time-Period.

I Almost Never Know Which I’m Going To Be Doing Until I Get Out There And Get Movin’.

I Like To Change-Up My Routes…

…Trying To Never Go The Exact Same Way Each And Every Time.

Like My Blog, I Tend To Perform The Other Activities In My World As Randomly As Possible.

I HATE MONOTONY.

.PERIOD.

By Maintaining A Feeling Of Pure Randomness…

…My Activities Almost Always Have The Feeling Of NEWNESS.

It’s How My Brain Works…

…And It’s How My Life Unfolds.

I Tend To Just Fall Ass-Backward Into Situations…

…Almost Totally Regardless Of WHAT Said Situation Is.

It’s Both A BLESSING And A CURSE, To Be Sure.

ANYWAY…

…The Point Of This Post Is To Quickly Discuss Some Tunage.

I’m Going To Impart Some Quickie Knowledge On Y’all.

You See…

…I Try To Walk Each And Every Day, When It’s Possible To Do So.

And There Are Many Days When I Go For Said Walks, But I Just Don’t Seem To Have The Energy/Motivation To Go As Long, Or As Far, As I Would Like.

THAT’S WHERE THE SWEET SWEET TUNES COME INTO PLAY!!!

Right Now…

…I’m Going To Share With You Something I Feel Y’all Should Consider For The Next Time You Get Out-&-About.

When It Comes To A Lengthy Walk-About…

…You’ve Gotta Have Those Songs That Motivate You.

Songs Where You Can Time The Steps Of Your Feet With The Beat Of The Song.

They Help You Kick-It-Up At Notch…

…And They Help You Crank-It-Out Like Nobody’s Business.

Here, For Y’all’s Pleasure, Are The 7 Most Important And Essential Songs…

 (in no particular order as I love them all)

…For Powering Through MY Walk.

I’m Going To Begin This With…

That’s Them, My Peeps.

Those Are THE 7 SONGS (and an Honorable Mention) I Simply MUST MUST Have On My Little Music-Box.

I Don’t Listen To All Of Them All The Time…

…But I’m Always Glad To Know I Have Them Handy.

I Derive Much Motivation From Each Of Them…

…And A Heaping Amount Of Pleasure, Also.

If I’m Going To Suggest ANY SONGS That I Feel SHOULD BE On Your Player…

…In Regard To Aiding In Personal Motivation…

…To Get Y’all Movin’ Movin’ Movin’…

…Those Would Be Them.

A Short…

…Sweet…

…Simple Little List Of Jams That Are Very Easy To Obtain…

…And Even Easier To Truly Enjoy!

Are You Ready To Go Tromping-About For A Bit, Yet?

I Sure As Hell Am.

I’ve Already Done One Walk Today…

…And I’m Already Planning On Another.

The Outside Temperature Will Be The Deciding Factor As To WHEN I’ll Be Going For Another Stroll.

I Love To Sweat…

…But I Don’t Wanna Roast.

It’s Supposed To Be One Hot Bastard Outside, Today.

So My Second Walk Will POSSIBLY Be An Evening Affair.

That’s Fine With Me.

It Gives Me All The Time I Need To Come-Up With A New Playlist!

BRING ON THE DAY, WORLD!

I. AM. READY. FO. SHO.

😀

I Know…

…Not Much To This Bloggin’ing.

In All Sincerity…

…It Was Just Something FUN For A Generally Downer-Day.

Hope Everyone Is Alive AND Functioning This Morning.

I’m PRETTY SURE I Am.

Suppose That’s All One Could Really Ask For.

I May HOPE For More…

…Sure Sure…

…But I’ll Leave My Actual Askin’ Right About There.

Good Plan???

Yeah…

…I Hope So, Also.

“Someone’s Knockin’ At The Door. Somebody’s Ringin’ The Bell. Someone’s Knockin’ At The Door. Somebody’s Ringin’ The Bell. Do Me A Favor, Open The Door, And Let ‘Em In…” — Paul McCartney and Wings (“Let ‘Em In”)

You May Think Me Odd But, Honestly, "Let 'Em In" Is In A THREE-WAY-TIE For Being MY FAVORITE Song By Sir Paul and WINGS... The Other Two Are, OF COURSE, "With A Little Luck" and "Live And Let Die" !!! 😉
