My Morning Mixes: Bourbon, Scotch AND Beer? On A Monday Morning? OKAY!!!

Good Morning, My Peeps.

πŸ™‚

How Goes The Day So Far?

Too Early To Tell, Eh?

That’s What I Was Thinking, Also…

…Even Though My Day Is Already Hours Old.

How’d Ya Sleep?

I Gotcha, I Gotcha.

Me, Also.

It Took Nothing To Fall Asleep…

…And Everything To Stay Asleep.

In The End…

…Staying Asleep Failed, Yet Again.

Oh Well, Right?!

RIGHT!!

πŸ˜€

Well…

…We’re Not Here To Discuss Sleep, Anyway.

Are We?!

We’re Not, Right?!

Ah.

Good.

RIGHT!!

Let’s Talk A Little Music, Then!!

Good Plan, My Peeps, Good Plan!!

πŸ˜‰

WEEELLL…

…Temperature Wise…

…It’s Damn Near PERFECT, Outside.

That’s A VERY Good Thing.

We’ve Had Some Brisk Little Mornings Of Late…

…So Today Was Simply Made For Walkin’!

πŸ™‚

My Morning Mix Began With A Classic.

Which Classic Would That Be?!

GEORGE THOROGOOD & THE DESTROYERS

…And Their Version Of…

ONE BOURBON, ONE SCOTCH, ONE BEER

πŸ˜€

You Know I Like To Get My Walks Going Great…

…And This Morning Was No Different.

So Why Not Kick-It-Off With An 8 1/2 Minute Jam?!

Exactly, My Peeps, Exactly!

Why Not, INDEED!

πŸ˜‰

I Then Slipped Into Some…

…OH YEAH…

ALICE COOPER

…With His Charming Little Ditty…

TEENAGE FRANKENSTEIN

πŸ˜€

I Chose That One Because It Makes Me Happy To Do So.

TEENAGE FRANKENSTEIN

…Always Makes Me Think Of My Nephew, As He’s A Big Fan Of It, And That Generally Gives Me The Power To Pick-Up My Pace.

πŸ˜‰

I Went For A Double-Dose Of…

DEPECHE MODE

…After That.

I Went Old-School When I Hit-Up…

STORIES OF OLD

…And Then Went Oldest-School ((DEPECHE MODE Wise)) With…

JUST CAN’T GET ENOUGH

πŸ˜€Β Β Β Β Β Β  πŸ˜€

Trust Me, My Peeps, Those Two, Back-To-Back, Are A Wondrous Walking Combination, Fo SHO!

πŸ˜‰

I Decided To Stay In The Same Neighborhood…

…Musically Speaking…

…When I Went For A Little…

ERASURE

…And Their Immortal ((If You’re An ERASURE Fan)) Jam…

VICTIM OF LOVE

πŸ˜€

Let Me Guess…

…You’ve Never Heard The Words ERASURE And IMMORTAL In The Same Sentence?!

I Kinda Figured That One, Kids, I Really REALLY Did.

πŸ˜‰

TOM PETTY

…Was Up Next, As I Wanted To Slow-Down The Pace Just A Touch.

So I Went With…

FREE FALLIN’

πŸ˜€

That One Has Been A Fave-Fave Since Its Initial-Release…

…And Has Yet To Get Old To Me.

That’s What Great Tunage Is Supposed To Do, Right?!

RIGHT!!

πŸ˜‰

I Wanted To Pick-Up The Pace Again, But Not TOO MUCH…

…And I Had The Perfect Song In Mind…

TOO SHY

by KAJAGOOGOO

πŸ˜€

That’s Another Fave-Fave With Major “Lasting-Powers” Fo SHO!

It’s A Song That Always Makes Me Smile…

…And It’s Also A Perfect Walkin’ Jam!!

πŸ˜‰

I Had My Next Jam Already Picked-Out, As I Knew I Wanted To Kick The Pace WAY UP Before I Went Into My Cool-Down/Cruising Mode.

What Was It, You Ask?!

PART-TIME LOVER

…From The Man Himself…

STEVIE WONDER

πŸ˜€

You Must Remember, Kiddies, I’m A Child Of The ’80s…

…And That One Is My All-Time FAVE From Mr. WONDER!!

He’s Had A Ton Of Fantastic Jams…

…But That One Reminds Me Of MY OWN Past, As I Remember When It Was BRAND-NEW!!

πŸ˜‰

Finally…

…It Was Time To Cool-It-Down Before Calling-It-Quits.

I Ended-Up Selecting A Song I Hadn’t Listened To In Quite A While.

It Simply Fit What I Was Wanting To Do So Well.

My Final Jam Of The Morning Mix, Was…

LET IT BE

by THE BEATLES

πŸ˜€

Talk About A GREAT Early Morning Stroll, My Peeps.

GREAT, Indeed.

πŸ˜‰

Have ANY Of YOU Been On A Morning Walk-About?!

I’m Sure SOMEONE Has To Have Done So!

If You Have

Did You Jam-It As You Kicked-About?!

WHAT/WHO DID YOU LISTEN TO?!

I’d Love To Know, Fo SHO Fo SHO!!!

πŸ˜€Β Β Β Β Β Β  πŸ˜€Β Β Β Β Β Β  πŸ˜€

My Morning Mixes: From An “URGENT” Emergency To The Sounds “HIGHER LOVE”!!!

Since I Recently Haven’t Gone For A Nice, Long Walk…

…And Because It’s Damned Comfy Outside, Today…

…I Decided To Hit-The-Road And Be-Bop Around Town A Bit.

So…

…Of Course…

…Some Great Tunage Was Totally Called-For.

What Exactly Did I Jam To, This Morning?!

WELL…

…LET ME TELL YOU!!!

πŸ˜‰

My Walk Began With A Classic Jam Favorite…

URGENT

by FOREIGNER

…As I’ve Gotta Kick-Off Every Walk With A Favorite Jam, Ya Know?!

SURE YOU DO!

πŸ˜‰

I Decided To Stick With Classic Favorites, And Played…

ABRACADABRA

by The STEVE MILLER BAND

…Which Is A Song That Has Yet To Ever Fail In Bringing A Smile To My Face. Love Me Some STEVE MILER BAND, Fo SHO!

πŸ™‚

Since I Was Already In A Good Mood, And Moving Quite Well This Morning…

…I Went With A Little Bit Of…

WARREN ZEVON

…And His Nifty Little Number…

EXCITABLE BOY

…Which Is Another Smile Inducing Jam!

πŸ˜€

Now…

…With The Next Song…

…I’m Likely To Catch A Little Flack.

I Started Jamming To…

LEAN ON ME

…But Not The Classic-Version…

…No…

…It’s The Cover Version…

by CLUB NOUVEAU

!!!

(...hahahaha I Know... I'm Lame... My Bad...)

πŸ˜‰

Up Next Was Another Classic-Classic Fave-Fave…

ONCE BITTEN, TWICE SHY

by GREAT WHITE

…Which Is Simply One Of The Most Fun Jams I’m Proud To Say I Own!

πŸ˜€

The Next Song Is Something Special.

A Personal Favorite That Honestly Doesn’t Get The Recognition It Truly Deserves.

I’m Talking About…

VICTIM OF LOVE

by ERASURE

!!! !!!

It’s A Song I Truly Love, And It Can Really Get You Motivated While On A Walk-About!

Totally!!

πŸ˜€

The Song Up Next Is One I Suppose You’d Have To Call A “Guilty Pleasure” Fo Sho…

SHANDI

by KISS

…HAHAHAHA!

Yeah.

It IS A Song I Do Greatly Enjoy…

…But It IS A Rather Lame Little Jam, Nevertheless.

Hey, BITE ME!

I Like It.

I Listened To It.

It Gets A Mention.

Leave It At That, My Peeps.

Sheesh.

πŸ˜‰

I Followed Up That One With A Truly Classic Jam…

JOURNEY‘s

ONLY THE YOUNG

…Which Is One Of Their Faster Jams, Fo SHO!

It’s A Wonderful Motivational Tune, My Peeps…

…And One I Can Easily Recommend To Y’all If You’re In Serious Need Of Said Motivation.

πŸ˜‰

I Decided To Stark Kicking-It Into A Lower Gear After Hearing Some JOURNEY…

…And I Went With…

96 TEARS

by QUESTION-MARK And THE MYSTERIANS

…Which Is A Sweet Little Jam, Fo SHO, And One That’s Easy To Enjoy!

Gotta Love The Organ Being Played Throughout It, Of Course!

πŸ™‚

And Then…

…Finally…

…I Was Starting To Come Close To The End Of My Little Stroll…

…So I Went With Some Quality…

DEPECHE MODE

…For My Cool-Down…

…And I Played…

HIGHER LOVE (LIVE)”

…Which Is One Of My Favorite Jams By DEPECHE MODE…

…Though It’s One Most People Have Never Heard Of, Let Alone Heard.

But Trust Me, My Peeps, It’s A Wonderful Song To Cool-Down With.

FO FLIPPIN’ SHO!!!

πŸ˜€Β Β Β Β  πŸ˜€Β Β Β Β  πŸ˜€

And That Is, As They Say, That.

A Loverly Walk-About…

…With Some Wonderful WONDERFUL Tunage To Keep Me Moving!

Now I’m Curious As To What The Rest Of The Day Shall Have In-Store For Me.

Hopefully Something AWESOME…

…Though I Try Not To Get My Hopes-Up, Ya Know Ya Know?!

SURE YOU DO!!!

πŸ˜€

L8r L8r, My Loving Tater-Tots!!

PEACE!!!

The Song Stuck In My Head: “VICTIM OF LOVE” by ERASURE (1987)

…You Say That I Could Show Some Emotion…

…That I’ve Been Keeping Secrets…

…From You…

…But I Can See Through All Your Sweet Talk…

…And All Of Your Affection…

…Untrue…

…I’m Gonna Find You Out…

…If You Scream And I Shout…

…You Won’t Break Down My Protection. …

VICTIM OF LOVEIs Off Of The 1987 AlbumTHE CIRCUS” By ERASURE

…I Don’t Wanna Look…

…Like Some Kind Of Fool…

…I Don’t Wanna Break…

…My Heart Over You…

…I’m Building A Wall…

…Every Day It’s Getting Higher…

…This Time I Won’t End Up Another…

…VICTIM OF LOVE. …

TheVICTIM OF LOVESingle Album From The Band ERASURE

.

.. ..

… … …

.. ..

.

Since I Hadn’t Listened To…

ERASURE

…In Such A Long Time…

…I’ve Spent The Bulk Of My Morning Softly Listening To Their Album…

THE CIRCUS

…And Specifically The Song…

VICTIM OF LOVE

…Which Is An ALL-TIME Fave Of Faves, Fo SHO, My Peeps!!!

The Problem…

…Is…

…I’ve Yet To Stop Listening.

A Fellow Blogger And Friend…

SMAK

…From…

http://prometheantimes.com/

…Made Mention Of…

ERASURE

…Last Night.

His Mere Mentioning Is What Inevitably Caused This Little Love-Fest.

So I Can EASILY Blame Him For This.

Period.

πŸ˜‰

SHITE!

I Just Ruined One Side Of My Ear-Phones!!

I Took It Out Of My Right Ear…

…Bumbled It…

…And Dropped The Damn Thing Into My Frickin’ Coffee!!!

Sheesh.

This Isn’t Going To Be My Day, My Peeps.

😦

Granted…

…I Do Have My Spare Set Of Headphones…

…But Still.

That’s NOT The Point, Ya Know Ya Know?!?

Sheesh, I Tell You.

Sheesh, Indeed.

😦

Sorry, Kiddies.

I Know That Has Nothing To Do With The Band…

ERASURE

…Nor The Song…

VICTIM OF LOVE

…But That Doesn’t Change The Fact It Happened.

It’s Rather Upsetting, Actually.

(*Grrrr*)

I Should Have Known Something Like That Would Happen.

I’m A Tad Accident-Prone.

I Dropped A Mobile-Phone Into A Bowl Of Veggie Soup, Once.

So TRUST ME, My Peeps…

…The Ear-Phone’s Demise Comes As No Surprise.

ANYWAY…

…Give This One The Ole College Try, My Peeps.

ERASURE

…Is An Exceptional Band…

…And Their Music Is Exceptionally Unique.

They’ve Been Around Since The 1980s…

…And Continue To Put Out Quality Jams.

VICTIM OF LOVE

…May Be An ALL-TIME Fave Of Faves…

…But It’s Not Their Only Song.

I’d Encourage You To Check-Out The Entire Album…

THE CIRCUS

…If You Really Are Interested.

You Can Branch-Out From There.

Or Start Wherever You Please.

They’re Worth A Listen, At The Least, My Peeps.

Now…

…If You’ll Excuse Me…

…I Have Music To Jam To…

…I Have Coffee To Drink-Up…

…And I Have New Ear-Phones To Purchase.

πŸ˜‰

Enjoy Your Day, My Peeps.

Enjoy, Indeed.
