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!!!

“Here Shall We Live… In This Terrible Town… Where The Price For Out Eyes… Shall Squeeze Them Tight Like A Fist…” — DAVID BOWIE (“Slow Burn” (2002))

…And The Walls Shall Have Eyes…

…And The Doors Shall Have Ears…

…But We’ll Dance In The Dark…

…And They’ll Play With Our Lives…

…Like A Slow Burn…

…Leading Us On And On And On…

…Like a Slow Burn…

…Turning Us Round And Round And Round…

…But Who Are We…

…So Small In Times Such As These…

…Slow Burn…

…Slow Burn. …

…Oh, These Are The Days…

…These Are The Strangest Of All…

…These Are The nights…

…These Are The Darkest To Fall…

…But Who Knows?…

…Echoes In Tenement Halls…

…Who Knows?…

…Though The Years Snare Them All…

…Like A Slow Burn…

…Leading Us On And On And On…

…Like A Slow Burn…

…Twirling Us Round And Round And Upside-Down…

…There’s Fear Overhead…

…There’s Fear Overground…

…Slow Burn…

…Slow Burn. …

DAVID BOWIE During TheHEATHENTour, Circa 2002

I’ve Always Referred To…

HEATHEN

…As The FORGOTTEN…

DAVID BOWIE

…Album.

It Was Released In 2002…

…And I Remain The ONLY Person In My Little World Who Actually Owns It.

Period.

Some Of The Songs I Sincerely Didn’t Dig So Much.

BUT BUT BUT…

…There ARE A Few Choice Tunes That Are Simply WONDERFUL.

So…

…For Now…

…I’ve Chosen To Highlight The Song…

SLOW BURN

…As It Was Widely Accepted To Be The Best Tune On The Album.

Y’all Should Totally Give It A Listen, Sometime.

If You LOVE Some…

DAVID BOWIE

…Then You’ll Likely LOVE…

SLOW BURN

!!! !!!

I Sure Did.

And That’s What Really Matters, Right???

RIGHT!!!

πŸ˜‰

HAPPY LISTENING, MY PEEPS!!!
