Earwig Song

There are those songs that once you hear them, them get stuck in your head

This is one of them.

It’s one of my least favorite songs every. But once I hear it, I start humming it.

“Afternoon Delight” by Starland Vocal Band (1976).

So, now.”, I’m sharing by it with you.



Song of the Day

I have always loved this song.

“Instant Replay” (1978) by Dan Hartman.

Here are the lyrics, in case you want to sing along.

Instant Replay

(Ten nine eight seven six five four three two one)

You set my lips on fire
You won the key to my heart
You’ve got a special way to move me
Don’t stop now let’s do it again
You keep me dancing through the moonlight
I feel the pleasure in your touch
And everything you are is heaven
Oh I can’t get enough no I can’t get enough

(Instant replay) I’ve got to have it
(Instant replay) ooh whoa ooh-ooh
(Instant replay) got to have your love again

I feel so good about us
I found a shining star
And when I look into your eyes it’s magic
Well I just know this can’t be a dream
I’m so happy must be real
In every way it’s getting stronger
Now you know it let me show it

(Instant replay) I’ve got to have it
(Instant replay) woo-woo-woo-ooh
(Instant replay) got me floating on a cloud
Got me dancing all around all around all around (woo)

Ooh ooh ooh ooh
Eeya-eeya eeya eeya-eeya
D-doo d-doo d-doo-ooh
Ooh ooh ooh ooh
(Instant instant)
(Instant instant instant replay)
Ah ah ah
(Instant replay) instant replay (x2)
(Instant replay) woo ooh ooh ah
I can’t stand it I can’t stand it
Got to have it ’cause I need it
Don’t ya know don’t ya know don’t ya know
I need your love
I need your love love love
(Instant replay) let me show it (instant replay)
(Instant replay) I need your love
(Instant replay instant replay)
Ooh and I’m feeling overcome (instant replay)

Song of the Day

One thing I really wished I got to experience is going to a Disco.

I’ve wondered how it would be inside, with the lights and mirror ball spinning. And the music blaring in the background.

Then there is the people watching and the fashion of that time.

Here’s a song from the 70’s that I like to listen.

I really need to find a mirror ball to put in my house.

So, here’s one to dance to.

“Don’t Rake Away the Music” by Tavares (1976).

Crazy Love

Here’s a song that I like and for some odd reason know all the words to.

“Crazy Love” by Poco.

Barry Manilow in Concert

Here’s another concert to check of my Concert Bucket List.

He was playing at The Majestic Theater in San Antonio tonight.

I wasn’t too sure if I wanted to spend the money in a ticket to see him. But I thought, what the heck? I’ve never seen him and I’ve always liked his music. I mean, how could you not love “Copacabana?”

Here are some pictures from the concert.

A Night With Janis Joplin

Another great shpow at The Tobin Center in San Antonio.

“A Night With Janis Joplin.”

The show featured Kelly McIntyre as Janis Joplin and she was amazing!

Some of the songs from the show were:

“Me and Bobby McGee,” “Piece of My Heart,” “Mercedes Benz,” “Cry Baby” and “Summertime.”

The show’s Joplin interjects the songs with stories about her life, and also showcases some of the singers who influenced her, including Bessie Smith, Etta James, Aretha Franklin, Nina Simone and Odetta.

I had no idea what to expect. I’m a fan of her music and know a little about her. But I learned so much more about her, her life and her music.

I’m so glad I got again tickets to see some fabulous shows at one of my favorite places to see shows… The Tobin Center.

Till the next show.

Side Note:

Janis Joplin was born on January 19, 1943, in Port Arthur, Texas, and died of a heroin overdose a mere 27 years later on October 4, 1970, in Los Angeles, California. But, in that all too brief interim, she managed to pack a helluva lot of living and became one of the biggest female rock stars of her time.
