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.

It’s Going To Be Alright

The next couple of week are tough weeks for me. There just are a lot of things that have happened in the months of November – January that were life changing.

I was trying to find a song that would help me through these next few months and I found this one in my YouTube list of songs from 2014. “It’s Going To Be Alright” by Sara Groves.

I have no idea where I heard this song, but it had to mean something to me if I found it on YouTube and saved it since 2014. But I really need to believe in my heart that everything will be alright. I really want karma to kick in, but I know it doesn’t work that way.

I thought I was over certain things, but something has been creepy up on me and I am letting it the best of me. I need to think of all the positive things that I have happened to me and not dwell on the bad stuff.

So I am going to listen to this song a couple of more times. I am going to believe that everything will be alright.

“It’ Going To Be Alright”

It’s going to be alright
It’s going to be alright
I can tell by your eyes that you’re not getting any sleep
And you try to rise above it, but feel you’re sinking in too deep
Oh, oh I believe, I believe that
It’s going to be alright
It’s going to be alright
I believe you’ll outlive this pain in you heart
And you’ll gain such a strength from what is tearing you apart
Oh, oh I believe I believe that
It’s going to be alright
It’s going to be alright
When some time has past us, and the story if retold
It will mirror the strength and the courage in your soul
Oh, oh, I believe I believe,
I believe
I believe
I did not come here to offer you cliches
I will not pretend to know of all your pain
Just when you cannot, then I will hold out faith, for you
It’s going to be alright
It’s going to be alright
Songwriters: Gordon S. Kennedy / Sara Groves

 

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.

Song of the Day

I’ve been listening to my iTunes a lot more since I got my new car. There are some songs on there that I like to listen to over and over again. One of those songs is, “Bawitdaba” (1999) by Kid Rock. (Shout out to a Michigan connection!)

Whenever this song comes on, I need to turn the radio up. I really don’t even know what the song means, but there I am in my car singing out loud.

Here are the lyrics, just in case you want to actually sing the correct words to the song, unlike me.

“Bawitdaba”


Bawitdaba da bang a dang diggy diggy diggy said the boogy said up jump the boogy
Bawitdaba da bang a dang diggy diggy diggy said the boogy said up jump the boogy
Bawitdaba da bang a dang diggy diggy diggy said the boogy said up jump the boogy
Bawitdaba da bang a dang diggy diggy diggy said the boogy said up jump the boogy
Bawitdaba da bang a dang diggy diggy diggy said the boogy said up jump the boogy
Bawitdaba da bang a dang diggy diggy diggy said the boogy said up jump the boogy
Bawitdaba da bang a dang diggy diggy diggy said the boogy said up jump the boogy

(Get Ready)
My name is KIIIIIIIIIIIID…Kid Rock

Bawitdaba da bang a dang diggy diggy diggy said the boogy said up jump the boogy
Bawitdaba da bang a dang diggy diggy diggy said the boogy said up jump the boogy
Bawitdaba da bang a dang diggy diggy diggy said the boogy said up jump the boogy
Bawitdaba da bang a dang diggy diggy diggy said the boogy said up jump the boogy

And this is for the questions that don’t have any answers
The midnight glancers and the topless dancers
The candid freaks, cars packed with speakers
The G’s with the forties and the chicks with beepers
The Northern Lights and the Southern Comfort
And it don’t even matter if the veins are punctured
All the crackheads, the critics, the cynics
And all my heros in the Methodone Clinic
All you bastards at the IRS
For the crooked cops and the cluttered desks
For the shots of jack and the caps of meth
Half pints of love and the fifths of stress
For the hookers all tricking out in Hollywood
And for my hoods of the world misunderstood
I said it’s all good and it’s all in fun
Now get in the pit and try to love someone

Bawitdaba da bang a dang diggy diggy diggy said the boogy said up jump the boogy
(Love Someone)
Bawitdaba da bang a dang diggy diggy diggy said the boogy said up jump the boogy
(Kill Someone)
Bawitdaba da bang a dang diggy diggy diggy said the boogy said up jump the boogy
(Love Someone)
Bawitdaba da bang a dang diggy diggy diggy said the boogy said up jump the boogy
(Come On)

For the time bombs ticking and the heads that hang
All the gangs getting money and the heads that bang bang
Wild mustangs the porno flicks
All my homies in the county in cell block six
The grits when there ain’t enough eggs to cook
And for DB Cooper and money he took
You can look for answers but that ain’t fun
Now get in the pit and try to love someone

What
Bawitdaba da bang a dang diggy diggy diggy said the boogy said up jump the boogy
Bawitdaba da bang a dang diggy diggy diggy said the boogy said up jump the boogy
(Come On)
Bawitdaba da bang a dang diggy diggy diggy said the boogy said up jump the boogy

Love, and for the hate
And for the peace…. WARRRRRRRRRRRR

Bawitdaba da bang a dang diggy diggy diggy said the boogy said up jump the boogy
Bawitdaba da bang a dang diggy diggy diggy said the boogy said up jump the boogy
(Come On)
Bawitdaba da bang a dang diggy diggy diggy said the boogy said up jump the boogy
Bawitdaba da bang a dang diggy diggy diggy said the boogy said up jump the boogy
