My Favorite Of A Favorite: Hallelujah

I’ve been up all night, smoking cigarettes and drinking gin from a jelly jar. No, but I always thought that’s what writers should do. It’s so Fitzgerald and Hemingway. I actually have a cold, and can barely take in a breath without coughing. Smoking would be lethal. However gin from a jelly jar? Do-able. We all house images in our mind of how things should take place. … Read More My Favorite Of A Favorite: Hallelujah

…and you could really be a beau brummel baby…..

I am a highly suggestive person when it comes to music. A line from a song, a hummed melody, even hearing just a part of a song on the radio can get it stuck in my brain for hours or longer. This happened to me just last night after I wrote this little piece on my blog. It had absolutely nothing to do with … Read More …and you could really be a beau brummel baby…..

Shake and Shimmy Those Shoulders

My friend Greg and I went to college back when you had to crank the Victrola for music. Actually, it was the late 1970’s. There were 8 track players by that time. He went on to a successful career in journalism and education, and now writes a great music blog called Echoes In The Wind.  Check it out. I tell you this because he may have just given me … Read More Shake and Shimmy Those Shoulders

I’ll Be Seeing You

I was thinking today. That aside, I realized that I have acquired a large amount of knowledge over my half-century about music. Not the music of my generation. Oh no, this is about my knowledge of the 30’s and 40’s standards. I remember thinking when I was a teenager that I was a misplaced bobbysoxer from the 1940’s who died in a hideous accident, crushed to death by hundreds of teenage girls … Read More I’ll Be Seeing You

My Favorite of a Favorite: The Second Time Around

I go on quests sometimes. I like to think of a favorite song, and then search for my favorite version of it. I’ve done that a couple of times here with Lowe and Behold and Let It Be. I was reminded yesterday of an old Bing Crosby movie from 1960 called High Times. It’s a silly farce about a man in his 50’s who … Read More My Favorite of a Favorite: The Second Time Around

Lowe and Behold.

Finding your favorite of a favorite. I know you understand. Let’s say your favorite candy bar is Milky Way. And let’s say your favorite chocolate is dark. Holy Chicken Tamales……you find Milky Way Dark Chocolate. (this just recently happened to me) I’m pretty sure I just found my favorite version of one of my all time favorite songs. Here it is. And Milky Way Dark Chocolate was … Read More Lowe and Behold.

Let It Be

Let It Be may be my favorite Beatles songs.First it touches the very deepest of despair,  and then with the ultimate nurturing voice it reassures you to just let it be. Paul wrote this after having a dream about his deceased mother (Mary). She reassured him that all would be OK. Though he couldn’t remember exactly what she said, the phrase let it be kept going through … Read More Let It Be
