3/11/19 – James Taylor “Carolina In My Mind”
It’s been a great weekend in Chapel Hill! Carolina fans know that anytime you get a win over Duke, it’s good. Plus, it was Senior Night in the Dean Smith Center, and that makes it even sweeter, since it makes for a good going-away salute to Cameron Johnson, Luke Maye, and Kenny Williams, 3 of the finest Tar Heel basketball players I know!
3/12/19 – Luther Vandross “Stop to Love”
What an incredibly smooth voice this man had! LUTHER VANDROSS has been gone for about 15 years, but this guy could have sung the phone book and made it sound great. That’s what we used to say, and, of course, these days, hardly anyone ever looks at a phone book, but you know what I mean.
3/13/19 – Aerosmith “Walk This Way”
I woke up this morning with Steven Tyler screeching in my head. Not the most wonderful way to wake up and start the day, but at least it was a great song. “The Bad Boys of Rock” have been around a long time. They came out of Boston and then proceeded to rock the world.
3/14/19 – Delaney & Bonnie “Things Get Better”
Delaney & Bonnie Bramlett sure knew how to rock and roll! I’ve been listening to a lot of Delaney & Bonnie music in my car lately, and I guess it was only natural that I woke up with one of their songs in my head to start the day this morning. And what a great way to wake up! Delaney & Bonnie were a great musical couple in the late 60’s and early 70’s… and they made some great memories together for those lucky fans who got to see them in concert.
3/15/19 – Fine Young Cannibals “Good Thing”
This band got together in the mid-80’s, but they didn’t really hit it big until 1988 when they released an album called “The Raw And The Cooked.” (I guess it’s appropriate for a band with their rather off putting name.) There were a couple of big hits on that album. The first one everybody remembers is “She Drives Me Crazy.” That’a NOT the one playing in my head today! That distinction belongs to the follow-up single, called “Good Thing.”
