Music Fridays: Most of All

People have always told me I look just like my dad. When you’re young, and a girl, you’re not exactly happy to hear that. But over time I’ve come to accept that fact and appreciate it. It’s just one of the things I inherited from my dad. A love of music, photography, good food, are a few others.

Music Fridays: Soak up the Sun

By the time you read this post, I’ll be either halfway there, or will already be dipping my feet in the ocean, and looking for sun to soak up. I consider myself pretty luck to already be headed back to see my friend, the ocean. I saw it briefly last April, and had a cold…

Music Fridays: Something Different

A friend shared this poem with me last week because he thought I would find it inspiring. He was right. This poem was written by 14-year old Kevyn Carter-Long, the daughter of one of his colleagues. I’m sharing it here today as my “Music Fridays” entry because it’s all about music and it eloquently describes…

Music Fridays: A Threesome with George

George Michael was one of my favorite artists. He was such a talented songwriter and performer. I was heartbroken when he passed away Christmas 2016. I consider myself lucky to have seen him perform life. I was at the first show of his first US tour in 1988 and loved every minute of it. Yesterday…

Music Fridays: Going Down South

Here’s something a little different for me and brand-new from The Black Keys’ new album, Delta Kream. I used to have one of their earlier albums and think I might need to add this one to my library. I also like the single the released last month, Crawling Kingsnake. I think I could dance a…

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…
