Music Fridays: Dancing in the Dark

I’m loving the cool 70s vibe in this video of the new Juanes cover of Springsteen’s Dancing in the Dark. Juanes is one of my favorite artists and it looks like his next album will be covers that influenced him as a music lover and musician. I’m one of those that didn’t really listen to…

Music Fridays: Dance for the Hell of It

Yesterday was International Dance Day and I didn’t dance! Well, maybe just a few salsa steps in my kitchen, a little bit of chair dancing in my office chair, and bit of swaying back and forth as we listened to the guy busking on the streets outside during dinner. Close enough? This song is one…

Music Fridays: Moon River

I almost forgot to post this today! I just returned from Savannah, where I learned that it was the home of Johnny Mercer, author of many songs we all know and love, including this classic. Here is Andy Williams’s version, one of my favorites.

Music Fridays: Man! I Feel Like a Woman

I’m on vacation!! I’m working on my road trip playlist and still have some time to fill. This is one of the songs on the list now. Positive song, great to dance to in your living room or in your car, and great to sing along with. Let me know if you have any suggestions…

Music Fridays: Something Old, Something New

Happy Friday! It’s a beautiful day here in the Upstate even though the forecast is calling for rain later today and tomorrow. The sun is shining right now though and my windows are open to let in a breeze, along with the competing sounds of lawn mowers, the bees, and the birds. I’m open, too….

Music Fridays: The Ride

All you dead end boys All you break down girls Thinkin’ you’re all out of pavement Like it’s the end of the world All you burned out believers All you spinnin’ your wheels Like you’re gettin’ nowhere wing and a prayer I know just how you feel But it’s the stars that make the night…

Music Fridays: Soul

I don’t have a special reason or story to go with this week’s pick. This is one of the newer songs I’ve added to my library on my phone. I like the groove, the message. It makes me feel good. Sometimes that’s all you need. Have a great weekend!

Music Fridays: Vamos a la Playa

This week’s bloom take me back to the beach…. wish I was there right now. This week’s weather turned cool and rainy, probably because I was bragging about how nice it was. 🙂 I’m not sure I ever went to Taboga when I was 13 or 14. I don’t remember going with my family so…

Music Fridays: My Life

This week’s bloom again had perfect timing: “You can’t control other people’s behavior, never could, never will. All you can control is how you react.” — Dottie Billington, Ph.D. I had been talking to someone just before I picked my bloom about a related topic. He was frustrated and trying to work through some family…
