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.

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

Music Fridays: More Christmas Spirit

Music Fridays: O Holy Night

It’s that time of year, so for the next few weeks I’ll share a few of my favorite Christmas songs for the Music Fridays post. I’ve been a fan of Josh Groban since his first album in 2001. I don’t remember now how I happened to hear him for the first time but I fell…

Music Fridays: Thanksgiving Song

Thanksgiving looked very different for many of us this year. I’ve been trying to remember what I did last year though and honestly cannot remember anything about the holiday other than the few days immediately after. That’s when some of the kids were in town and we got the news about the first grandchild that…
