Music Fridays: A Threesome of Covers

I couldn’t decide which way to go for this week’s musical post. Since it’s Valentine weekend, I knew I wanted some kind of love song. But as a single woman (and someone very much opposed to that idea just months ago), I knew it wouldn’t be a traditional love song. I think the three songs…

Music Fridays: Fly Away

LIving alone it gets pretty quiet in my little nest. I have gone a whole day at least once or twice without talking to anyone but myself (I say things like “What was it I was about to do?” or “Why did I walk into this room?”) Music makes the workday go by a little…

Music Fridays: Slow Dancing

This week’s song is fairly new, I think, and certainly new to me. I’m not familiar with Aly & AJ either but when this song came up in one of the Apple Music playlists I listen to while I work, it got my attention and I was swaying in my chair. I’ve posted dance music…

Music Fridays: Better Days

I almost forgot it’s Music Friday! I first heard this song a week or two ago on one of my suggested Apple Music playlists that I listen to while working or cooking. Then I heard it again on the inauguration special the other night and I decided it would be my music selection for this…

Music Fridays: Lil Bit

I feel like dancing again so I’m grooving with Nelly on my couch as I write this. I heard this song for the first time a month or so ago and almost immediately added it to my phone. I don’t have any other tunes by Nelly or Florida Georgia Line, but this one just made…

Music Fridays: I See America

I found Joy Oladokun on NPR’s list of best songs of 2020 and this song just seemed to work for this week’s selection. I don’t have much to say about this week’s events in our capital that hasn’t been said so much better by others already. I’m embarrassed, ashamed, angry, disappointed, and shocked. 2021 is…

Music Fridays: Let’s Dance!

It’s over! At last! Let’s celebrate with some dancing, shall we? This is a mostly random selection of songs that came up when looking for happy, cheerful songs. I’ve had several moments over the last couple of months when I got up from desk and started dancing along to what Alexa was playing, just to…

Music Fridays: Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas! In this week’s edition of Music Fridays here is a trio of some of my favorites, all three of them classics. Hope you’re having a lovely Christmas. 🎄

Music Fridays: Happiness

There’ll be happiness after you But there was happiness because of you Both of these things can be true … There’ll be happiness after me But there was happiness because of me Both these things I believe There is happiness in our history Taylor Swift, Aaron Dessner
