Alright, My Peeps…

…Let Me Quickly Say, I Don’t Just Listen To This Song…

FIND ANOTHER FOOL

by QUARTERFLASH

…When Someone Has Treated Me Foolishly And I Wanna Vent.

No.

I Also Listen To This Song When I’m Dwelling Upon MY Foolishness.

We’ve All Been Foolish In Matters Of Love At One Point Or Another.

Most Especially In Matters Of Love, Honestly.

In Fact…

…It’s In Matters Of Love Where I’ve Suffered Through Many MANY Bad Experiences In My 30’ish’ish Years.

And, I’ve Done So ((ALMOST)) Totally Because Of MY Personal Foolishness.

Then Again, Isn’t That Generally How It Goes?

Is That How It Always Goes For You?

How About You??

And You, There, In The Back???

Yes, And YOU, Also?!?!?

Yeah.

That’s Kinda What I’d Figured.

Our Favorite Game As Human-Being’s Is LOVE.

Always Has Been.

Some Will Quip, Its Not A Game!”

To Those People, I Say Good On Ya.”

I Also Say, If You Dont Think It’s A Game, Then Youve Likely Been Hurt, Or Have Hurt Someone Else, While Playing And You Are/Were Pissed About It.”

To Be Honest, My Peeps, I Don’t Know What Else To Call LOVE.

It’s Always Felt Like A Game.

It Has Losers.

It Has Winners.

It Has First Time Players.

It Has Umpteenth Time Players.

It Has Unskilled Players.

It Has Highly Skilled Players.

It Has The Sheer Bliss Of A Solid Victory.

It Has The Horrid Dejection Of A Terrible Loss.

In Short…

…If It Ain’t A Game…

…What Is It?!?

That’s A Question I Sincerely Struggle With.

Honestly, As I Said, I Don’t Know What Else To Call It.

I Was Hoping To Get A Hand From Y’all, In That Regard.

That’s What We’re Here For, Correct?!

A Learning Experience.

I Know That’s A Big Reason I’m Here.

It’s Not The Only Reason, But It’s An Important One.

Fo Sho???

FO SHO!!!

πŸ˜‰Β Β Β Β Β Β Β Β Β  πŸ˜€

LOVE, Whether A Thought OR A Feeling, Perpetuates Foolishness.

We Do So Many Foolish Things Whilst Playing Along.

We Do Things.

Things We Either WANT Or DON’T WANT To Do, All Because Of What We Feel, Or Think We Feel, For Someone, Or Something, Else.

Y’all Know I’m Not Slippin’ You Any Jive.

I’m Callin’ It Like It Is.

The Problem With This Wondrous, Beautiful, Vile, Evil, Amazing Thing We Call Love Is This:

How Do We Know When Were Playing, And How Do We Know When Were Being Played???”

Yeah.

Exactly My Point, My Peeps.

Honestly, You Don’t Know.

You Don’t Know Until Something Eventful Happens.

He Said YES!” πŸ˜€

He Said NO!” 😦

He Said MAYBE SO!” 😐

Any Way It Goes, You Never Know Until Something Happens.

You Never Know Until The Proof Is There.

You Never Know Until It’s Tangible.

And, Even Then, Do You Really Know?

You Think You Do.

Is That Enough?

Sometimes, That Has To Be Enough.

Sometimes, That’s All We Really Have.

Right???

RIGHT!!!

My Advice?

You Kids Just Be Good.

Play Nice.

Try Not To Hurt Anyone, Especially Yourself.

Try Not To Do Anything Toooooooooo Foolish, Ya Hear Me?!?

Now, Go Get ‘Em, Tiger!!!

Good Game… …Good Game.

So... Are YOU Jivin Me -questionmark-

A Song To Make ANYONE Smile: “SHOUT IT OUT LOUD” by KISS (1976)

“…If You Don’t Feel Good

There’s A Way You Could

Don’t Sit There Broken-Hearted

(…Sit There Broken-Hearted…)

Call All Your Friends In The Neighborhood

And Get The Party Started

(…Get The Party Started…)

Don’t Let’em Tell You That There’s Too Much Noise

They’re Too Old To Really Understand

You’ll Still Get Rowdy With The Girls And Boys

‘Cause It’s Time For You To Take A Stand

YEAH YEAH…”

SHOUT IT OUT LOUDIs A Regular Crackerjack Of A Tune From The 1976 AlbumDESTROYERBy Rock-Gods KISS !!!

“…SHOUT IT

SHOUT IT

SHOUT IT OUT LOUD

SHOUT IT

SHOUT IT

SHOUT IT OUT LOUD! …”

<<<…….>>>

<<…..>>

<…>

.

I Really Needed To Begin My Day With Something FAST

…And FUN

…And LOUD!!!

To Me…

…That Simply Screamed…

“YOU MUST PLAY SOME KISS!!!”

…And So I DID!!!

πŸ˜€

SHOUT IT OUT LOUD

…Is One Of The All-Time Classic-Greats From Rock-Bizz-Titans…

KISS

…And Is One Of MY Personal Favorites!

When It Popped On Me Ole MP3Player…

…I Knew I’d Found My Wake-Up Jam!

πŸ˜€ Β  Β  Β  πŸ˜€

Everyone Has To Start Their Day Differently.

Some Folks Just Roll-Out-Of-Bed And Imediately Hit-The-Showers.

Some Folks Require A Double-Shot Espresso…

(...hopefully with a cheese-danish or something tasty like that...)

…From The Local Starbucks.

Some Folks Just Hit-The-Ground-Running And Go For It.

Folks Like Myself, However, Reuqire Something Special To Begin Our Day’s Riggors.

I Didn’t Wanna Make Coffee TOOOO Early…

(...Though I'm Having Some, Now, As We Jive...)

…So I Needed Me Some Quality Jams!

I Popped On My Player And Here We Are!

πŸ™‚

Nifty, Eh?!

NIFTY, INDEED!!

πŸ˜‰

I Awoke In A Pretty Damned Decent Mood This Morning.

I’m Feelin’ Better…

…So I’d Like To Try And Get As Much Work Done As Possible.

I’ve Had A Few Ideas I’d Like To Explore…

…And I’d Like To See If I Can’t Come-Up With A Few More.

That’s Life, Eh?!

Go For One Thing…

…That Thing Turns Into Another Thing…

…That Turns Into, Yet, Another Thing.

And On And On And On.

So We’ll See What I Can Do With This “Damned Decent Mood” I’m Sporting.

Y’all Will Still Be Here When I Get Back, Right?!

GREAT!!

Perhaps Some Of You Just Need That Extra Little Jolt To Get Movin’?!

Well, Then…

…May I Suggest To You An Album Like…

DESTROYER

?!?

It’s A Regular Jim Dandy, Kiddies, Fo SHO!!

I Have The Feeling That Some Of Y’all Could Really Go For Some Of That…

…Sweet…

KISS

…Action!!

And, If That’s The Case…

SHOUT IT OUT LOUD

…May Just Be The Perfect Song To Awaken You From Your Zombifyed Morning State!!

It Worked For Me This Morning…

…So PERHAPS Is Could Work For You, Also!!

Now Wouldn’t THAT Be NICE!!

YOU BETCHA, My Peeps!!

Fo SHO!!

ROY ORBISON’s “BLACK & WHITE NIGHT”: The Swan-Song Of A Music Legend

I Haven’t Been Buying BLU-RAY Movies For Very Long.

Perhaps A Year Or Two, Now.

Maybe.

And This BLU-RAY…

ROY ORBISON‘s

BLACK & WHITE NIGHT

…Was My Very First BLU-RAY Purchase.

In Fact…

…I Owned It BEFORE I Ever Got A BLU-RAY Player.

No Foolies, My Peeps.

I Knew One Day I’d Own One…

…And This Was The One BLU-RAY Disc I Wanted More Than Any Other.

There Are Many MANY Great BLU-RAY Flicks Out There.

Some Of The Most Amazing Special Effects I’ve Ever Seen With These Two-Eyes Were In The BLU-RAY Format.

Yet…

BLACK & WHITE NIGHT

…Was The One I Wanted Most.

And I’m So Supremely Pleased With Myself For Making Said Purchase.

BLACK & WHITE NIGHT

…Is Simply…

…Honestly…

…Amazingly…

…Wonderful Wonderful WONDERFUL.

Period.

ROY ORBISON

…Is My Music God.

I’ve Loved His Music Since I Was A Child.

I Know, It Sounds Crazy, But You Have To Know Me To Understand Me.

I Was The Kid Who Rarely Listened To What Was Happening Right Then.

I Was Always More Interested In What Had Come Before.

I Was The Kid Who Got Made-Fun-Of Because My First Two CD Purchases Were…

THE JOHN LENNON COLLECTION

…And…

THE BEST OF HERMAN’s HERMITS

πŸ˜€

Again…

…No Foolies, My Peeps.

THE ROY ORBISON COLLECTION

…Was My Third CD Purchase.

It WOULD Have Been First.

It SHOULD Have Been First.

But The Day I Went To “CAMELOT RECORDS” With My Dad To Purchase A Copy, I Was Greeted With A…

"I'm Sorry, Sir, We Sold Our Last Copy Earlier Today. Can I Help You Find Something Else?"

😦

I Was So So SO PISSED.

I Couldn’t Believe Someone Had Bought MY Frickin’ CD.

"That Bastard!"

…Was My First Thought.

"No. I'll Find Something," I Said Meekly.

And I Did.

And I Was Happy To Have My “JOHN LENNON” And “HERMAN’s HERMITS” Discs…

…But It Wasn’t The Same.

I Didn’t Get What I Wanted And I Was Angry.

Who Wouldn’t Be Angry About That?!

EXACTLY!!!

You Would Have Been PISSED, Also.

So…

…When It Came Time To Start Thinking About BLU-RAYS…

…I Knew Immediately Which One I Was Going To Buy.

And By Thunder, I DID IT.

I Got EXACTLY Which Disc I Wanted.

No Hassle.

No Disappointment.

Just Bliss.

Pure, Loving Bliss.

Of All The BLU-RAYS I Now Own…

ROY ORBISON‘s

BLACK & WHITE NIGHT

…Is The Most Special To Me.

His Sound Moves Me.

Unlike Any Other Solo-Artist, He Moves Me.

His Voice…

…Which I Admit Is An Acquired Taste…

…Digs Deeply Into My Soul.

ME…

…The Unemotional Bastard…

…The Quiet…

…The Cold…

…The Cerebral Sociopath…

…Is Moved Nearly To Tears When I Hear ROY Perform.

He’s The Only One, Though.

He’s The Lone Ranger Of My Emotional State.

He Makes Me Smile.

He Makes Me Cry.

He Makes Me Very VERY Happy.

And This BLU-RAY Has Them All.

All His Best Jams.

ONLY THE LONELY

DREAM BABY

BLUE BAYOU

RUNNING SCARED

IN DREAMS

CRYING

CANDYMAN

MEAN WOMAN BLUES

IT’S OVER

OH, PRETTY WOMAN

They’re All Here.

It’s A 17-Track Concert…

…One Of The Last He Performed Before His Unexpected, And Horrifying Death.

When I Heard…

…In 1988…

…That ROY Was Dead…

…I Nearly Lost Myself.

I Simply Couldn’t Believe It.

I Was 8-Years-Old…

…And My Music Hero Was Gone.

It’s A Tough Gig When Your Personal Icon…

…Regardless Of Their Profession…

…Up And Dies On Ya.

It Was So So SO Sad.

😦

BUT…

…Like All Great Artists…

…He Lives On.

His Music Is Still Amazingly Wonderful.

It’s Timeless.

His Sound Was So Unique That It Transcends Time.

For My Money…

…Honestly…

…It Doesn’t Get Any Better.

BLACK & WHITE NIGHT

…Puts ROY Along-Side Music Greats, Like…

JACKSON BROWNE

T. BONE BURNETT

ELVIS COSTELLO

k.d. lang

BONNIE RAITT

J.D. SOUTHER

BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN

…And…

TOM WAITS

!!! !!! !!!

ROY Is The Show…

…The Others All Back-Him-Up.

What You Get Is An All-Star Concert For The Ages!!!

It’s Brilliant, My Peeps.

It’s A Concert Film I’d Easily Watch With Anyone Who Might Care In The Slightest.

It’s That Good, Kiddies!!!

*** *** ***

SOOO…

…What Are YOU Watching, Tonight?!

Anything Special??

Anything At All???

Well…

…Y’all Know What I’m Watching…

…What I’m Listening To.

And Regardless Of What You’re Watching…

…I WIN.

PERIOD.

πŸ˜‰

Enjoy The Weekend, My Peeps.

I’m Sure You’ve Earned It.

I’m Sure We’ve ALL Earned It.

Got Nothin’ To Chill To, And Enjoy?!

ROY ORBISON‘s

BLACK & WHITE NIGHT

…Could Easily Fill-In.

I Love It.

And Before It’s All Said And Done…

…You’ll Love It, Also.

Trust Me, My Peeps.

Trust Me, Indeed.

MERCY!!!

*** *** *** *** *** *** ***

*** *** *** ***

***

WELL, WELL

by BETH HART and JOE BONAMASSA

…Is An Exceptional Little Tune That Always Has The Power To Get Me Up And Movin’.

It’s Got An Infectious Beat/Pace/Rhythm That Simple Screams…

"GET UP AND DO SOMETHING, SHEESH MAN, SHEESH!!"

And I Do Just That.

I Get Motivated.

I Get Up.

I Get It Crankin’.

I Do My Best To Function Properly.

I’ve Already Decided To Make This Song, Yet Again, The First Song Of The Day When I Head-Out On My Walk.

I’m Waitin’ On The Walkin’, At The Moment.

It’s A Touch Brisk Outside…

…And There’s A Fairly Strong Breeze.

So I’m Gonna Chill ‘Till About 10AM Before Givin’ The Walkin’ A Goin’.

πŸ˜€

WELL, WELL

…Is A Finely Crafted Song…

…And It Ranks As My Favorite Track From Either…

BETH HART

…Or…

JOE BONAMASSA

Period.

Granted, They’ve Both Had A-MA-ZING Solo Careers…

…But This Collaboration Album Is Totally The Bee’s Knees, My Peeps.

I Enjoy It Highly…

…And I Think You, Also, Would Enjoy The Album…

DON’T EXPLAIN

…A Heaping Bundle.

Come On, Kiddies.

Give It The Ole College Try, Okie Dokie?!

COOLIO!!!

I Just KNEW You’d All See It My Way!

That’s Likely Why You Continue To Grace Me With Your Presence And Friendship.

I’ve Got Yer Back, Kids…

…And I’ve Got My Finger On The Pulse Of What’s Up.

This Album…

DON’T EXPLAIN

…And More So This Song…

WELL, WELL

…Are Definitely Made To Get That Pulse Racing…

…The Blood Pumping…

…The Toe Tapping…

…Etc…

…Etc…

…And So On And So Forth.

Like I Said…

…Give It A Go, Please.

THEN…

…Report Back To Me And Let Me Know What You Think.

Chances Are…

…Your Favorite Songs Will Be…

WELL, WELL

…And The Second Fave Will Likely Be…

I’D RATHER GO BLIND

…Which Is My Other Favorite Song On Said Album.

In Fact…

I’D RATHER GO BLIND

…Is Honestly One Of The Most Beautifully Amazing Songs You’re Likely Ever To Hear…

…And It’s THE BEST Song On The Album.

It’s SOULFUL.

PERIOD.

It’s Just Not A Walkin’ Song.

It’s More Of A…

"Wow, I Feel Like I Need A Stiff-Drink With This Song."

Wonderful.

Simply Wonderful.

BUT…

WELL, WELL

…Is Still My Favorite…

…AND…

…It’s The MOST Fun.

πŸ˜€

Enjoy Your Day, My Peeps.

I’m Trying MyΒ Damnedest To Do That Very Thing.

A Nice Walk Shortly And I’ll Be Right As Rain, I Reckon.

At Least, I Hope So.

THE BUGIs My Absolute Favorite Track Off Of The 1991 AlbumON EVERY STREETBy DIRE STRAITS !!!

… … … … …

… … …

Honestly, My Peeps…

…I Can’t Take Credit For This Song Selection.

Nope.

For That, Y’all Have Got To Thank My Exceptional Friend…

Ms. RENEE

…From The Famous…

…Or Infamous…

http://rendezvouswithrenee.com/

πŸ˜€

That Woman…

…I Swear…

…She Get’s My Mind Working In Many Different Ways.

Lucky For Y’all…

…Today My Focus Is THIS Song…

THE BUG

by DIRE STRAITS

!!! !!!! !!!

πŸ™‚

T’Is A Personal Favorite Jam I’d Not Listened To In Many A Moon.

Hell, I’d Forgotten I Even Had This Album In The Ole Collection Until She Posted This Song To Her Facebook Page, Yesterday.

I Think…

…Since Hearing It Again, Yesterday…

…I’ve Likely Listened To It…

…Ohhh…

…I Dunno…

…20…

…Perhaps…

…25 Times.

(teehehehe)

No Foolies, Kids.

No Foolies, Indeed.

I Was Going To Label This Piece As An Entry Into My…

“The Song Stuck In My Head”

…Series.

BUT…

…Even Though It IS Stuck In My Head…

…I Felt This One Was Much More Deserving Of The Newer…

“A Song To Make ANYONE Smile”

…Label.

Ms. RENEE

…Has The Power To ALWAYS Make Me Smile.

When I’m Sick?

Yep.

She’s On The Phone Checking-In On Me.

When I’m Depressed?

Yep.

She’s There.

When I’m Being Playful And/Or Goofy?

You Can Almost Bet She’s Involved Somewhere In The Mix.

So…

…I Figured Since This Is The Way I Best Express Myself…

…I’d Just Do-Up A Quickie Post With HER And THIS SONG In Mind.

I’ve ALWAYS Been A Fan Of…

DIRE STRAITS

…And Likely Always Will Be.

I’ve Mentioned This Before…

…But I STILL Have My…

DIRE STRAITS: THE VIDEOS COLLECTION

…On Friggin’ LASER-DISC!!!

Once Again…

…No Foolies, Kids.

And…

…In-Case You Were Wondering…

…Yes…

…That Fact Remains A Point Of Geeky Pride For Me.

I’ve Still Got Some Rather AMAZING Titles In That Little Collection.

I Love The Laser-Disc Player.

πŸ˜‰

ANYWAY…

…Back To What I Was Sayin’…

Ms. RENEEE

…Is VERY Good People.

So Why Not Dedicate A Song To Her?

That’s How We Used To Do It Back In The Day.

If You Wanted To Express Yourself To Someone…

…You Called Up The Local Radio-Station And Put In A Request With The DJ For A Song Dedication.

Since She And I Don’t Listen To The Same Radio-Station, A Dedication Of That Sort Would Be Rather Pointless.

SO…

…I’m Dialing-Up Myself…

…And Putting In My Own Sort Of Dedication.

That’s Cool, Right?!

AWESOME OPOSSUM!!!

I Kinda Figured Y’all Would Have My Back On This One.

Now…

…I Know A Bundle Of Folks Who Sincerely DO NOT LIKE THIS SONG.

Period.

THE BUG

…Is One Of Those Songs Where The Band…

DIRE STRAITS

…Was Starting To Slip More Into A Country’ish-Pop’ish-Rock’ish Sound With Their Music.

Not Totally.

Not Completely.

But Nevertheless It Was Happening.

Then…

…As It Turned-Out…

ON EVERY STREET

…Was The Final Album They Would Release.

That Was Very Much A Bummer, My Peeps.

:*(

THE BUG

…Remains A Classic Favorite From…

DIRE STRAITS

…And The Album…

ON EVERY STREET

…Does Have A Very Secure Place Within My Collection.

So I Feel Pretty Good About This Little Dedication.

Thank You For Being Such A Good, Fun Person…

Ms. RENEE

!!! !!!! !!!

T’Is So Very Much Appreciated.

And I Hope You…

…And Y’all…

…Enjoyed This One.

I DID.

…So Many Women, So Little Time…

Since I Awoke Very Early This Morning…

…After Having Gone To Sleep Rather Late…

…I Was In Need Of A Morning-Music-Jolt.

A Musical Kick-In-The-Pants, Ya Know?!

Something To Get Me Moving…

…As Moving Was NOT Something I Was Really Ready To Do.

So…

…I Popped On Ye Ole MP3PLAYER…

…And To My Happy Surprise…

…This Song…

SO MANY WOMEN, SO LITTLE TIME

by THE ROBERT CRAY BAND

…Was The First Song To Play.

Not Only Did It Get Me Moving…

…But It Put A Big Ole Smile On My Face.

Y’all Already Know I’m A Huge Fan Of…

ROBERT CRAY

…And…

THE ROBERT CRAY BAND

…So I Don’t Necessarily Need To Go Into All Of That.

But, Y’all Have Never Heard Me Make Mention Of This Little Number.

For That Reason…

…It’s Become The Song Of My Morning…

…The Song Of The Moment…

A Song To Make ANYONE Smile.

πŸ™‚

It Sincerely Is Kinda Difficult NOT To Smile When This Song Plays.

It’s Fun!

It’s A Happy Song From A Blues Rocker That Has Those Musical-Magical-Powers I’m Always Telling Y’all About.

I Simply LOVE Songs Like This One.

It Has A Cheerful…

…Carefree Beat.

The Rhythm Is Such That It Makes One’s Toes Begin To Tap Along.

It WILL Get Ya Movin’ Movin’ Movin’, My Peeps.

A Big FO SHO On That One.

πŸ˜€

So Why Not Give It A Go, Ya Know Ya Know?!

Why Not, Indeed!

Hey…

…I’m Just Tryin’ To Perk-Up Your Morning, Kiddies.

T’Is My Job, Ya Know?!

SURE YOU DO!!

So Don’t Give Me Any Guff, Please.

Just Kick-It-Back…

…And Enjoy Some Quality Tunes.

Especially When They’re As Nifty As This One.

I Do Promise I Shant Steer You Wrong.

However…

…The Next Step Belongs To You.

Shall We Listen Along Together?

GREAT!!!

GLAD TO HEAR IT!!!

SO MANY WOMEN, SO LITTLE TIME

…May Not Be The Best Best Bestie Best Song On The Album…

BAD INFLUENCE

…But It IS The Most Smile Inducing Number Presented On Said Album.

Trust Me, My Peeps.

It’s Worth The Time And Effort You Need To Put Into Hearing It.

Like I Said…

…I Shant Steer Y’all Wrong.

Y’all Have My Word.

Whatever The Hell That’s Good For, Anyway.

Songs That (oddly but surely) Make Me Smile: “OLD BEFORE MY TIME” by The ALLMAN BROTHERS BAND (2003)

“…When I Was Younger

I Thought I’d Rule The World

It Was An Oyster At My Feet

Dancing To My Own Drum

Fishing Out The Pearls

Wish I Would Have Been Much More Discreet

I’ve Lived A Lifetime

Acting Out A Part

Its Been A Long, Uphill-Climb

Now All The Things That Used To Mean So Much To Me

Have Made Me Old Before My Time. …”

*** *** ***

OLD BEFORE MY TIMEIs A Truly Amazing Jam From The 2003 AlbumHITTIN’ THE NOTEBy The ALLMAN BROTHERS BAND !!!

*** *** ***

While Some People Sincerely Feel This Song…

OLD BEFORE MY TIME

by The ALLMAN BROTHERS BAND

…Is Just Damned Depressing…

…I’ve Always Been Able To Derive My Own Pleasure From It.

More Than Anything, It Reminds Me Of My Father.

He’s A Rather Stout Fellow…

…And He Doesn’t Let Things Get To Him Like They Would Some Other Folks.

But This Song Can Almost Bring Him To Tears.

And It Does The Same To Me.

Not In A Bad Way, Though.

More Of A Highly Thoughtful And Contemplative Way.

Life Can Be Rather Crazy/Cruel/Odd/Quirky/Scary/Wonderful/Blissful/Etc Etc…

…And It’s Songs Like This One That Really Bring It All Into Perspective.

I Don’t Find This Song Depressing.

I Find It Oddly Uplifting.

It Really Could Be The Story Of My Life.

It Really Could Be The Story Of A Lot Of Our Lives.

Released In 2003…

HITTIN’ THE NOTE

…Is Very Likely My FAVE-FAVE Album From…

The ALLMAN BROTHERS BAND

…Of ALL-TIME.

Yes, I Know…

…They’ve Been Around Since The 1960s…

…And Many People Would Say Their Best Work All Came Before The Death Of DUANE ALLMAN, The Former Lead-Guitarist.

And Perhaps That’s True.

But It’s Just Personal Opinion.

To ME…

…This Album Is Their Very Best Work.

It’s Crisp.

It’s Soulful.

It’s Amazingly Wonderfully Beautiful.

The Songs Simply Dig Deep Inside You And Make You Think About What’s Being Sung To You.

The Lyrics Are Absolutely PRICELESS.

Period.

If You’ve Not Heard Of The Album…

…Which I’m Sure A Lot Of Y’all Haven’t…

…Then I’d Suggest Making It Next On Your…

"I've Gotta Check This Out!"

…Music List.

You’re Not Likely To Find A Better Album Out There.

If You Trust Me At All, My Peeps, When It Comes To Music, Or Movies, Or Books, Or Whatever…

…Then PLEASE Trust Me Now.

I Sincerely LOVE Me Some…

ALLMAN BROTHERS

…And This Song…

OLD BEFORE MY TIME

…Is A Highlight Jam From A Truly Amazing Album.

Well, Kiddies, FRIDAY Has Arrived!

Are You Simply STOKED!?!?

GREAT!!!

The Song That’s So VERY Stuck In My Head: “ROCKY RACCOON” by THE BEATLES (1968)

Rocky Raccoon…

…Checked Into His Room…

…Only To Find Gideon’s Bible…

…Rocky Had Come…

…Equipped With A Gun…

…To Shoot Off The Legs Of His Rival…

*** *** ***

…His Rival It Seems…

…Had Broken His Dreams…

…By Stealing The Girl Of His Fancy…

…Her Name Was Magill…

…And She Called Herself Lil…

…But Everyone Knew Her As Nancy…

…Now She And Her Man…

…Who Called Himself Dan…

…Were In The Next Room At The Hoe-Down…

…Rocky Burst In…

…And Grinning A Grin…

…He Said Danny-Boy This Is A Show-Down…

*** *** ***

…But Daniel Was Hot…

…He Drew First And Shot…

…And Rocky Collapsed In The Corner…

…Ahhh, Da, Da, Da, Da, Da, Da, Da…

"ROCKY RACCOON" Is Off Of THE BEATLES' 1968 Album "THE BEATLES" (aka "THE WHITE ALBUM") !!!

*** *** ***

This Should Teach Everyone A Lesson From The Annals Of Music History.

Namely, Don’t Go To Bed Listening To A Song You Sincerely DO NOT Want Stuck In Your Head.

Why?

Because Chances Are It’s Going To Get Stuck, Whether You Want It To Or Not.

Now, Don’t Get Me Wrong, My Peeps.

I LOVE…

THE BEATLES

…Especially…

THE WHITE ALBUM

…But Good God WHY Oh WHY Did This Song…

ROCKY RACCOON

…Have To Be The Tune That Stuck With Me???

I’ve Been Humming It To Myself All Morning Long!

It’s An Odd…

…Quirky…

…Oddly-Quirky’ish Song…

…And One Of My Guilty Pleasure Favorites…

…But Dammit Man, It Can Have The Oddly-Quirky’ish Ability To Get Lodged Within Your Brain…

…And I’ll Be Damned If I Know How To Get It Dislodged.

Sheesh.

I Was Hoping That By Blogging About It I’d Be Able To Calm My Mind, And End The Little Torment I’ve Caused Myself, This Morning.

So Far?

Nope.

It’s Still In There.

It’s Locked Into A State Of Perpetual-Repeat…

…And I’ll Be Damned If It Isn’t Getting Bloody Annoying.

Has This Ever Happened To You, My Peeps?

I’m Sure It MUST Have Happened At One Point Or Another.

Right?!

RIGHT!!

I Know Many Songs I Sincerely Wished I Could Forget About…

…Yet They Just Roll ‘Round-&-‘Round In The Ole Noggin…

…Never Choosing To Vacate An Already Exhausted Mind.

Again I Say…

SHEESH!

Lucky For Me, I Do Love This Song.

I Do Love This Album.

I Do Love This Band.

So…

…In Retrospect…

…It Could Always Be Worse.

Of That, I’m Very Sure.

I Could Have Ended Up With…

REVOLUTION 9

…Stuck In There.

That Might Have Killed Me Had It Happened!

πŸ˜‰

Hope Y’all Have A Decent Hump-Day, My Peeps.

Do What You Can To Make The Best Of It.

The Work Week Is Halfway Over!

SO…

…Hunker Down…

…Get Ya Some Decent Tunage To Carry You Through The Day…

…And Try Try TRY To Survive Yet Another Day In The Ole Salt-Mines.

If You Need Me…

…I’ll Be Right Here.

I’ll Be Doing What I Can To Help Y’all Through The Day.

I Make No Promises Of Success…

…But I WILL Be Trying Trying TRYING!!!

Can One Really Ask More Of Another??

Nope.

Not. At. All.

Bell Bottom Blues…

…You Made Me Cry…

…<*><*>…

…<*>…

I Love ERIC CLAPTON And Most Anything He Does.

So It Hasn’t Come As A Great Shock To Me That His Music Often Gets Stuck In The Ole Brain.

This Morning…

…I Awoke CRAVING The Song…

BELL BOTTOM BLUES

by ERIC CLAPTON

(while he was fronting the supergroup DEREK AND THE DOMINOS)

…And I Sincerely Don’t Know Why.

I Didn’t Hear It At All Yesterday…

…Yet It Was Super Fresh In My Mind, This Morning.

And NOW…

…My Brain Is Locked-In.

It’s Focused.

That’s Something I Rarely Have Much Of.

So Why Is It Being Wasted On A Song?

A Song 10 Years Elder To Myself.

A Song I Haven’t Heard Recently.

A Song That Simply IntrudedΒ And Decided To Set-Up Shop.

I Frickin’ Frackin’ HATE IT When This Happens.

Mainly, Because I Want Some Sort Of Answer/Explanation.

And I Know There’s Not Going To Be One.

There (almost) Never Is.

So I Simply Try To Accept It All…

…And Carry-On To The Best Of My Ability.

Can’t Ask For Much More Than That, Right?!

RIGHT!!!

BELL BOTTOM BLUES

…Is A Fantastic Song.

Period.

It’s One Of Those Songs With The One Major Quality Of All Fantastic Songs…

…REPEATABILITY.

You Hear It…

…You Get Sucked In…

…You Play It Again…

…And Then Again…

…And Again And Again And Again.

Talk About A Song With Magical Powers.

In Regard To The Music Of The Early 1970s…

BELL BOTTOM BLUES

…Is One Of The ALL-TIME GREATS.

It’s An ALL-TIME GREAT Regardless Of When It Came Out…

…But It’s A True Gem From That Era.

If You’ve Heard The Song Before…

…Chances Are You Liked It.

If You’ve NOT Heard The Song Before…

…It’s Totally About Time You Did, Kiddies.

πŸ˜‰

Monday Is Here, My Peeps.

Let Us Attempt To Make It A Decent One.

That’s Much Easier Said Than Done…

…But Totally Worth The Effort.

I’ll Be Pestering Y’all More And More Throughout The Day, Fo SHO!

Until Then…
