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.

๐Ÿ˜€

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.

๐Ÿ˜€

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.

๐Ÿ™‚

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!!!

๐Ÿ˜€

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.

๐Ÿ˜‰

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!

๐Ÿ˜€

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!

๐Ÿ˜‰ ย  ๐Ÿ˜€ ย  ๐Ÿ˜‰

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.

๐Ÿ˜€

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.

๐Ÿ™‚

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!!!

๐Ÿ˜€

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!!!

๐Ÿ˜‰

๐Ÿ˜€

๐Ÿ™‚

My Monday Morning Walkin’ Tunage Playlist…

…Should Make A Few Of Y’all Smile.

I Just Try To Listen To The Most Varied String Of Songs I Can.

This Morning’s Walk Was Nice…

…Though…

…Even At 4A.M…

…The Humidity Was Already Tooo Damned High!!!

I Only Walked For About An Hour’ish…

…Yet Don’t Have A Dry Stitch On!!!

Anyway…

…Yesterday I Only Listed A Short 8-Song List Of What I Jammed To.

Today…

…I Simply Couldn’t Do It.

I Cruised To So So SO MANY Great Songs This Morning…

…I Ended Up With A List Of 12-Jams.

I Was Very VERY SURE Y’all Would Love To See Said List.

So…

…In No Particular Order…

…Here We Go!!!

At This Time Of Morning…

…A Smile Can Go A Long Way…

…Though It Should Be Viewed With Mildย Skepticism.

I Could Just Beย Delirious Due To A Lack Of Quality Sleep.

BUT…

…I’m Trying To Give Myself The Benefit Of The Doubt, Ya Know?!?

If I Don’t Give It To Myself…

…WHO WILL?!?!?

Exactly.

YOU WILL!!!

And For That Gesture…

…I Remain Eternally Grateful.

I Sincerely Hope Y’all Have A Damned Decent Day…

…And I Promise To Try Try TRY To Do The Same.

As A Professional In The Art Of Trying…

…I’ll Give It A Go, Fo SHO!!!

The Song Stuck In My Head: “ZOMBIE” By THE CRANBERRIES (1994)

“…But You See…

…It’s Not Me…

…It’s Not My Family…

…In Your Head…

…In Your Head…

…They Are Fighting. …”

… … …

ZOMBIE Is Off The 1994 AlbumNO NEED TO ARGUEBy THE CRANBERRIES

… … …

“…With Their Tanks…

…And Their Bombs…

…And Their Bombs…

…And Their Guns…

…In Your Head…

…In Your Head…

…They Are Crying. …”

… … …

… … …

“…In Your Head…

…In Your Head…

…Zombie…

…Zombie…

…Zombie…

…What’s In Your Head…

…In Your Head…

…Zombie…

…Zombie…

…Zombie. …”

…^^^…^^^…^^^…^^^…

This Song…

ZOMBIE

By

THE CRANBERRIES

…Was The Last Thing I Heard Before Going To Bed Last Night…

…And It Was The First Thing I Heard This Morning When I Awoke.

I Fell Asleep While Listening To Some Music…

…And Totally Forgot I’d Set My Player To Shuffle-Repeat.

I’m Unsure What The Odds Are Of Falling Asleep Listening To A Song…

…Only To Awaken 5-Hours Later And Be Listening To THE EXACT SAME SONG…

…But I’m SURE They’re Some Very Looooooong Odds.

Especially When You Consider I Have Like 800+ Jams On This Puppy.

ANYWAY…

…This Song Was THE JAM During My Freshman Year Of High School.

I Can Easily Say I’ve Been Addicted To It Since Then.

All The Cool Kids Liked This Song.

I Was NOT A Cool Kid…

…But I Still LOVED The Song.

( ๐Ÿ˜‰ teehehehe ๐Ÿ˜€ )

The Only Bad Part About It Isย Blatantly Obvious…

…Once You Hear It…

…You’ll Be Walking Around Saying…

“ZOMBIE! ZOMBIE! ZOMBIE! Eh Eh Eh OH OH OH!”

etc etc etc

Yes…

…The Chorus Part Is MADDENINGLY ADDICTIVE.

You’ll Start Humming It Very Soon, My Peeps, If You Haven’t Begun Already.

Those Of You Who Know The Song AND Enjoy It…

…Yeah…

…Y’all Can Vouch For Me.

A-DIC-TIVE Fo SHO!

BUT BUT BUT, My Peeps…

…It Is NOT A Bad Way To Begin Your Day.

In Fact, It May Even Make You Smile A Tad.

I’d Take A Tad Of A Smile ANY DAY, Ya Know?!?

SURE YOU DO!!!

๐Ÿ˜‰

Have A Damned Decent Day, Kiddies.

Work Well.

Play Well.

Work Hard.

Player HARDER.

So It Is Written…

…And So It Shall Come To Pass.
