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).

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.
