Beautiful. Cloudy, early Fall afternoon with a slight breeze…
We Don’t Eat – James Vincent McMorrow
That we don’t eat until your father’s at the table
We don’t drink until the devil’s turned to dust
Never once has any man I’ve met been able to love
So if I were you, I’d have a little trust
I have been on a Ben Howard kick lately. Thanks Spotify. Here’s a good one…
I been worryin’ that my time is a little unclear
I been worryin’ that I’m losing the one’s I hold dear
I been worryin’ that we all live our lives in the confines of fear
The Fear – Ben Howard
A classic song “keep going” song.
Ben Howard – Keep Your Head Up
Keep your head up. Keep your heart strong. Keep your mind set.
You will either love this…or hate this.
Ours – Taylor Swift
“So don’t you worry your pretty little mind.”
Perhaps the greatest “wake up” song of all time. This is the Broadway version as performed at the Tony’s
Circle of Life – Lion King
“And it moves us all…”
Sally McGill has provided the inspiration to again begin each workday with song. I’m occasionally overcome by the stresses of the workday by about 10:30am. Beginning with a moment of music often pushes that breaking-point closer to 3:30pm. Today’s selection:
Glad Tidings – Van Morrison
“So believe no lies, dry your eyes and realize
La la la la la la la la la la”
First, a bit of news. I had a dream last night about a unique passion: Halloween music.
Following that inspiration, in the mold of last year’s “Greatest Christmas Music Countdown,” we will have a “Greatest Halloween Music Countdown.” There will likely be 13 songs of this list, because I have no energy to come up with another spooky number that relates to Halloween. However, all of this is condition to change.
It’s A Beautiful Morning – The Rascals
It’s your chance to wake up and plan another brand new day
The Kenny/Dave collaboration.
I’m Alive – Kenny Chesney & Dave Matthews
Breathing in and out’s a blessing, can’t you see?
Usually, if a song is on the Billboard Top 10, played constantly at fratty dance clubs, and something with a beat that seems specifically made to cause migranes, than I will hate it.
This is a rare exception. Something about it is so contagious. Also, enjoy the homemade music video.
I Got a Feeling – Black Eyed Peas
All I Know – Art Garfunkel
