|It took a while to get a song in my head this morning. I'm nursing a head cold and don't feel good at all. Slowly this song surfaced. One of my favorites from the Bare Essential vol. I CD.|

|I posted this back in October with a different video. I woke up with this song in my head this morning. I think the sun will shine today, but it is cold. Nice song; I hope I can carry the energy with me throughout the day.|

|Marshall Tucker has been in my head a lot lately, especially when I'm waking up in the morning. This song has a fast pace, very energetic. I sure wish I had that kind of energy this morning. And yes, I have had Ramblin' on my mind.|

|Bob Marley in the head this morning. Yes, mellow reggae is what I woke up with; maybe it will be a mellow laid back day. Is this love? Ah, love. Yes, love can be confusing. Love can be wonderful and love can be painful; sometimes both at the same time. Bob looks in pain in this video, more like torment. I know the feeling.|

|What a surprise to wake up with this song in my head. I think that Michael Franks is an acquired taste. Sometimes it is soothing and comical at the same time. I mean, who would ever think about writing a song about eggplant.|

|I woke up this morning at 4am, never could go back to sleep. I had a Marshall Tucker song in my head. I couldn't remember the name of it so I searched my iTunes library listening to each song. I never found the song that was in my head; in fact, I couldn't remember what was in my head to start with. So, I settled on this song; what else could wake me up at 4am?|

|This song has been on my mind the last few days. It is on the Blow soundtrack. I thought the movie was good, very sad in the end for a romantic like myself. The song is simple but really grows on me as I listen. Reminds me of how great life is when you are on the peaks. But the lows can be so low. It is the memory of the highs that can help pull you up from the lows.|
|I have no idea why this song is in my head this morning. Alarm goes off, I open my eyes, boom... this song is in my head. It is the only Kid Rock song I have in my iTunes library; the same for Sheryl Crow. That might have to change. Anyway, I like the song and I think it is a good duet.|

|Continuing with the Honeysuckle Rose theme as this song is on the CD. Yesterday I went for a bike ride and this song went through my head. This morning at 3am I had a different song (can't remember what it was), but when the alarm went off this morning this song popped in my head.|
Tuesday, November 16, 2010
|Another song from Honeysuckle Rose. It's really a nice duet with Willie Nelson and Dyan Cannon. Can you feel the love? A good duet is a pleasure to listen to and watch; it can cause you to put yourself there with that special someone.|
I'm really not a big fan of country music, but it might appear otherwise with all these posts lately featuring music from Honeysuckle Rose. The movie hit a chord with me years ago and it has stuck.
These songs are performed by Willie Nelson. What is interesting is that this one and the one below were written by Kris Kristofferson. It seems that credit normally goes to the recording artist and few know who the writer was. Kris has many hits that are sung and performed by other artist. He is a great song writer; he just can't sing worth a hoot. I really appreciate Kris's song writing skills and I'm sure many a recording artist does too. Willie Nelson actually recorded an album of nothing but Kristofferson songs which was a commercial success.
This video has low volume audio, so you might have to turn the volume up to hear.
While on the subject of duets and Honeysuckle Rose, how about this with Willie and Amy Irving, You Show Me Yours and I'll Show You Mine. This video comes from the movie. You'll have to watch the movie to see what happens next. This sceen comes before yesterday's post and why Buck has got some explaining to do.

|Another clip from Honeysuckle Rose, Two Sides to Every Story. Yesterday I was listening to some of the songs on the soundtrack so I guess that's why it was in my head this morning when I woke up. Like I said before, I really like that movie.|
Sure there are two sides, but unless you can defend and explain yours, then my side is right and your side is wrong. The wrong doer should figure out why they did what they did, and the victim deserves an explanation.
Yep, Buck has got some explaining to do.

|A few things have happened lately that makes me feel Deja Vu'. This song slowly crept into my mind this morning. Doing a search on YouTube returned several results. I decided to post three. The first is the album version, the one most of us have heard before, no video, just album art. The 2nd is a video from a 1991 acoustic concert, nicely done. The 3rd is the official video done recently; it wasn't quite what I expected as it is a war protest. The video is done very well and makes sense. The funny thing is I don't even have this song in my iTunes library. I need to fix that.|
For the official video click here. They wouldn't let me embed the code, so I posted the link.

|This isn't really the song I woke up with. I woke up with Angel Eyes, but I decided on this song instead because I was having trouble getting a good video. I really like this song a lot. I have two versions here. I like Willie Nelson's version, especially the one in the movie Honeysuckle Rose (I really liked that movie).
These videos are old. It is really interesting to see these artist in their younger years. This song was written by Leon Russell.
Here is a link to an old Willie Nelson video. I couldn't embed the video.

|I have woke up this morning with many songs in my head. Most of the songs are off the Erotic Lounge 5 - Secret Affairs CD. This is the first song on disk 1. I really like this CD. This video isn't a video at all, just the album cover and the audio could be a little better, but it will do.|

|I'm not really sure why I had this song in my head this morning. It's not Mother's Day, but mothers are still special. While I don't have a mother anymore, I'm sure my wife feels like she mothers me sometimes; at least she tries to take care of me. So... for all the mothers; you're special and thank you! The world is such a much better place because of mothers.|
BTW, I was turned onto this song from the Reggae Gold 2003 CD.

I'm so tired of repeatin' myself
I'm tired too and beatin' myself up; I do hope that when I go under I do have a smile on my face. The skies are clear and blue, but things have got to get better. At least I have a different song in my head this morning. This song is on the Grey's Anatomy Vol. 2 CD.

|Strange that I would wake up with this song. When I was still in high school I use to hang out at the local surf shop. I can remember this song from then from the Yellow Brick Road album which is actually on my Amazon wish list. That album was played a lot back then at the surf shop. I once saw Elton John at a concert in Mobile, AL. It was actually a good concert.|
Monday, September 27, 2010
|This song was in my head at 3am this morning. I actually woke up with I Hate Everyone, but I've been waking up with that song in my head for several mornings now. I'm not crazy about that song and even less so with the message; I want to love everyone, not hate everyone.|
So, Homebird Sing it is. This is on the Grey's Anatomy Soundtrack Vol. 2 CD.
Friday, September 24, 2010
|Definitely a pattern here. This song has actually been in my head for days. Just a nice beat and the message is upbeat too. I really need the upbeat message. Yesterday while riding my bike this song was totally on my mind; really helped me to keep those pedals turning. Starting to run out of different videos to post of this song.|
Thursday, September 23, 2010
|Wow. Twice in one week and the week is just half over. Is there some hidden meaning here? Am I lost and don't know it? Do I need to live everyday like it's my last? If nothing else, I'm trying to find different videos to post. There's no doubt it could be worse; it could be a terrible song repeating in my head; I actually like this song.|

|What a song to wake up to. NO, I don't hate everyone, and NO I don't hate you either. It's just a song, and I guess some days one just wakes up this way. Things haven't really been going my way lately, maybe that's why this song crept in. BTW, this song is on the Grey's Anatomy Vol. 2 CD; at least that's how I know about it.|
The video is just lyrics. There was a Youtube video shot in Bellingham that I almost used, but the audio wasn't very good.

|It was bound to happen, I woke up with a song in my head that I already blogged about. Not really sure what to do about it. Blog it anyway or not blog?|
Well, the weekend is over and all the races too. My legs and body are sore. While I didn't put in outstanding performances I did learn that I still have a sprint and I learned other race lessons too.
The Pensacola Bicycle Classic was successful and I'm really looking forward to it next year with more determination to put in better performances.
Being tired, maybe today's song is appropriate.

|It's race day number two. Today will be the criterium race of the Pensacola Cycling Classic in downtown Pensacola. This morning's song is a surprise to me. I think I did hear this song a couple of days ago which would explain why I woke up with this song in my head. A good beat and a fast rhythm; I sure hope that's the way my race goes, lots of high energy for me.|
No video, just music and cover art. There's dead time at the end; somebody didn't trim this video before posting.
Saturday, September 18, 2010
|It took a little while to sort this one out in my head this morning. Today is race day for the Pensacola Bicycle Classic. I would have liked something more up-beat, but this song is reflecting my mood and outlook this morning. |
Are we falling or flying,
Are we living or dying?
Interesting that this song too is on the Grey's Anatomy Vol. 3 CD; that's 3 songs of the 5 post I've done so far including this one. That CD has been popular in my head lately even though I haven't really listened to that much. Great song.
The video has a short interview before the song performance.

|This song was first in my head a few weeks ago. It wasn't in my music library, so I downloaded from Amazon. Great song even if it is old, simply classic. Well it was in my head again this morning, not what I was expecting.|
Thursday, September 16, 2010
|This song has been in my head for a couple weeks. I first heard it on the Grey's Anatomy Vol. 3 soundtrack CD. I hardly ever listened to Vol. 3 as on the playlist I had the songs in sequential order starting with Vol. 1. Then I cleaned up the playlist to delete songs I didn't like. Then the iPod was on shuffle. I was amazed at the songs that played that I hadn't really heard before, this song being one of them. Shuffle can be a good thing.|

|I have no idea why this song was in my head when I woke up, but it was. Believe it or not it was hard to find a decent video on YouTube; this one is just a still photo with the music so it loads pretty fast. I don't like much of Prince's music, but I did enjoy the movie Purple Rain from which I first heard this song.|
