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

!!! !!! !!!

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 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.
