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…

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!
