Song of the Day

​Here is a classic from 1979.


Makin’ It” is a 1979 pop song performed by David Naughton.

Oh, how I thought David Naughton was so cute. i think I had the 35 of this song.

I need to add this song to my Quick List Playlist. These are the songs I want to play without looking for them.

Song of the Day

Walking in Memphis” (1991) by Marc Cohn.


I like this song for many reasons.I like how it sounds. There is just something about Marc Cohn’s voice… 

Also, Memphis is my 1/2 way spot for my family and friends to meet me of they want to. 

Since I live in Texas and for my friends in Michigan, Memphis would be a great place to meet.

I hope that I will be able to meet one if my friends there some time next year. 

So, whenever I hear this song, I will be thinking of my family and friends who I might get to visit with  

Too Funny… 12 Days Of Christmas

I have seem and heard many different versions of “The 12 Days Of Christmas”, but this is one of the funniest I’ve seen in a while.

I promise after watching this you’ll never look at the 12 Days of Christmas the same way again.

Happy Holidays!

“Walk Like Man”


Walk Like Man” by The Four Seasons.

I love this video. As I said before, I would have loved to been there when this song came out and danced to it.

I’m so glad I had the chance to see “The Jersey Boys” live when I was in Las Vegas this past summer. 

R.I.P. Sharon Jones

I never knew of Sharon Jones until I heard her song “100 Days, 100 Nights” by Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings. It was featured on a Fitbit Charge HR Commercial (2015).

Sharon Jones, the fiery soul singer who spent decades in obscurity before becoming a Grammy-nominated soul and funk vocalist with her longtime backing band the Dap-Kings, died of pancreatic cancer. She was 60. (Rollingstone.com)

R.I.P. Sharon Jones and thank you for your music.

 

Happy Halloween

I was trying to find a song that would be fitting for Halloween. 

This is the one I picked, “Thriller” by Michael Jackson. 


I remember when this song and video came out in 1983. I thought having Vincent Peoce do the introduction and voice-ovet rap for the song was so cool.

I was glued to the TV when the video camera out on MTV. 

Funny how the zombies are a big thing now and they were in the video dancing with Michael Jackson. 

See, I’ve always said that the coolest music came from the 80’s. 

Happy Halloween and make it a great day. 

Understand Relationships

Best relationship advice. And I really need to listen to it, believe it and live it  

This is so brilliant that I had to share this advice on friendship from Madea (aka Tyler Perry). One of Madea’s comedy bits is about understanding relationships. Using the analogy of a trees, “Madea” says that some people are like leaves, some are like the branches on a tree and, then there are those friends who are our roots. Read this: Madea shares how to understand relationships.

Madea Relationship Advice “Let em go”– “This is what I’ve learned in all these years on this earth. If somebody wants to walk out of your life, Let. Them. Go. Especially if you know you’ve done everything you can do. If you’ve sat around and been the best man or the best woman you can be and they still want to go, let them go. Whatever they’re running after, they’ll see what they had in a minute, but by then it’s gonna be too late.”

Leaves, Branches or Roots
I’m looking for some roots. 

But find two or three people who are your roots. They are there to help you live and give stability to your life. A tree may have one thousand branches but just a few roots. Hold on to these people.
