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…

(...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!!!

…ROLAND THE HEADLESS THOMPSON GUNNER…

…ROLAND THE HEADLESS THOMPSON GUNNER…

…Talkin’ About The Man…

…ROLAND THE HEADLESS THOMPSON GUNNER. …

… … … … …

… … …

Honestly, My Peeps…

…I Hadn’t Listened To My WARREN ZEVON Music In A Long While…

…Which Is Why I Believe I Can’t Seem To Get It Out Of My Head At The Moment.

I Listened To It Yesterday.

Hummed It To Myself Into The Evening Hours.

Listened To It Again.

Went To Be Bed.

Woke-Up Waaaaaay Toooooo Early.

Listened To It AGAIN On My Walk.

I Haven’t Listened To It Since…

…Yet Continue To Hum Along As If I Were.

Sheesh.

Why Do I Do These Things To Myself?

Last Time I Broke Out The WARREN ZEVON Music…

…I Had…

WEREWOLVES OF LONDON

…On Perpetual-Repeat…

…In My Brain…

…For Like 3 Damned Days.

So I Should Have Seen This One Coming.

Perhaps I Just Chose To Believe It Wouldn’t Happen Again…

…And I Was Kinda Right’ish.

WEREWOLVES OF LONDON

…Did Not, In Fact, Get Stuck In My Head Again.

Nope.

This Time It’s…

…Yep…

ROLAND THE HEADLESS THOMPSON GUNNER

!!! !!! !!!

I Do So Enjoy The Man’s Music…

…I Just Wish It Wouldn’t Get So Stuck In There EACH And EVERY Time I Listen To It.

It’s All Music I’ve Known Since Early Childhood…

(which might help in explaining a few oddities in my personality hehehe)

…As My Father Was A Fan Of The Late MR. ZEVON.

And While I’m Not Expecting Most Of Y’all To Know This Song…

…I’m Sure A Lot More Of You Know His Work Than You Even Know You Know.

Ya Know?!?

GREAT!!!

Glad We’re Together On This.

πŸ˜‰

Aside From…

WEREWOLVES OF LONDON

…Which Can Be Heard A Bundle On Classic-Rock Radio Stations…

…His Other Notable Songs Are…

EXCITABLE BOY

LAWYERS, GUNS, And MONEY

…And…

…Of Course…

ROLAND THE HEADLESS THOMPSON GUNNER

…Which Was…

…Incidentally…

…The Final Song He Ever Performed Before A Live Audience.

He Played It On…

THE LATE SHOW With DAVID LETTERMAN

…Shortly Before His Death In 2003.

If You’re Into Music That Is…

…Shall We Say…

…DIFFERENT…

…Then You’d Do Yourself Right By Looking Into…

WARREN ZEVON

…Fo SHO, My Peeps.

The Bulk Of Y’all Won’t Like It.

I’m Just Tellin’ Y’all That Right Now.

Some Of Y’all…

…However…

…Won’t Be Able To Get Enough Of It.

It’s ODD.

It’s QUIRKY.

It’s Very VERY DIFFERENT.

Some Of Y’all Will Flock To It For That Reason Alone.

I Didn’t Start Listening To It For That Reason…

…I Just Came To Realize Later On It Was Very Obviously NOT What Everyone Else Was Listening To.

My Bad, I Guess.

But…

…These Days…

ODD, QUIRKY, And Very VERY DIFFERENT Kinda Describe ME In General.

What’Ya’Gonna’Do, Ya Know?!?!?

Such Is Life.
