9/16/19 – Eddie Money “Two Tickets to Paradise”
This one is a tough one to write. Eddie Money died this past Friday, and I’ve had his music in my head a lot all weekend. And this morning, I woke up with his most famous song resonating in my head. I’m a big Eddie Money fan. Yeah, I like his music, but I always thought he was more like a regular guy than a rock star…which, by all accounts, he was.
9/17/19 – Blood, Sweat & Tears “Spinning Wheel”
When Blood, Sweat & Tears came along, it was a whole new sound. Actually, they came out at about the same time as Chicago Transit Authority, right at the end of the 60’s and beginning of the 70’s, bands that were heavy on the horns, with a variety of influences. They weren’t really just rock and roll, they were also jazz, with superb musicianship!
9/18/19 – Jimmy Buffet “Cheeseburger in Paradise”
I am not a Parrothead. But thousands and thousands of people are! Those are the incredibly avid fans and enthusiasts of JIMMY BUFFET. He has his legion of followers, sort of like those who have always practically worshiped The Grateful Dead. Jimmy’s been making music for decades and decades. He’s a terrific songwriter. Most of his songs are about sailing and drinking, and generally, just being on the water or at the beach. It’s a form of escapism, really, and people love him for it.
9/20/19 – Sheryl Crow “My Favorite Mistake”
I have a confession to make. I’ve been listening to a lot of SHERYL CROW music lately. Every time I get in my car lately, when I’m not listening to us, I play this CD called “The Globe Sessions” that she did about 20 years ago….and it’s outstanding. I was straightening out some music a couple of weeks ago, and ran across this CD that I thought was lost.
