Walking Song

Here’s a song that I added to me Walking Music playlist.

“Canned Heat” by Jamiroquai (1999.)

It’s a fun song to walk to in the woods.

Sing of the Day

Because I recently saw the movie, Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again, this song has been stuck on my head.

“Fernando” is a song by the Swedish pop group ABBA. It was the group’s first non-album single and was released in March 1976.

From Wikipedia

In case you want to sing along

Fernando by ABBA

[Intro]

[Verse 1]

Can you hear the drums, Fernando?

I remember, long ago, another starry night like this
In the firelight, Fernando

You were humming to yourself and softly strumming your guitar

I could hear the distant drums, and sounds of bugle calls were coming from afar…

[Verse 2]

They were closer now, Fernando

Every hour, every minute seemed to last eternally

I was so afraid, Fernando

We were young and full of life and none of us prepared to die

And I’m not ashamed to say the roar of guns and cannons almost made me cry…

[Chorus 1]

There was something in the air that night

The stars were bright, Fernando

They were shining there for you and me

For liberty, Fernando

Though we never thought that we could lose

There’s no regret

If I had to do the same again

I would, my friend, Fernando

If I had to do the same again

I would, my friend, Fernando…

[Verse 3]

Now we’re old and grey, Fernando

Since many years I haven’t seen a rifle in your hand

Can you hear the drums, Fernando?

Do you still recall the frightful night we crossed the Rio Grande?

I can see it in your eyes, how proud you were to fight for freedom in this land…

[Chorus 2]

There was something in the air that night

The stars were bright, Fernando

They were shining there for you and me

For liberty, Fernando

Though I never thought that we could lose

There’s no regret

If I had to do the same again

I would, my friend, Fernando…

[Chorus 3]

There was something in the air that night

The stars were bright, Fernando

They were shining there for you and me

For liberty, Fernando

Though I never thought that we could lose

There’s no regret

If I had to do the same again

I would, my friend, Fernando

Yes, if I had to do the same again

I would, my friend, Fernando…

The Outsiders

Well, there are some movies I haven’t seen. “The Outsiders” is one of them.

There was a post on Facebook and I happen to mention that I hadn’t seen it… oh cow, you would think I ran over a puppy or something. I was mocked for not seeing that movie.

Since it is the 35th anniversary of when that movie came out, I guess I can now make an effort to watch it.

Once I watch, I’ll post my review… it will be 35 years overdue.

I saw this and I really need to go down the list and get rid of the things I don’t need.

When and if I move again, I will not move junk across State lines again

The first things that need to go:

  1. Towels with holes
  2. Movies I don’t watch
  3. Old magazines
  4. And God forbid… Excess Tupperware/plastic containers

Song of the Day

I have loved songs from movies. This has to be in my Top 5 favorite songs from a movie.

“God Is Trying To Tell Me Something” from The Color Purple.

I couldn’t share this song, without sharing one of the greatest scenes from a movie.
