Cuts Both Ways - Gloria Estefan

I had lots of songs in my head this morning. When the alarm went off this is the one that was there. The lyrics speak for themselves.

Haven't Got Time For The Pain - Carly Simon

I haven't been waking up with music in my head lately. I'm not really sure why except that I have a lot on my mind. But, today I do have a song in my head and this is it. Haven't Got Time For The Pain... Amen to that. I was curious to see what kind of videos I would find. I thought there would be a ton, but there were not very many. Oh well, I suppose that is good as maybe it means there aren't too many heart-broken people out there.

Right Thing To Do - Carly Simon

Loving you is the right thing to do. It's more than that. Loving you is what I want to do. Loving you is very much the essence of my being. You are such a part of me. My life would be so empty without you.

Yes, this is an old song. Picked this up from a used CD. I have enjoyed listening to the old songs from this CD.

Still Got The Blues (for you) - Gary Moore

I learned yesterday morning while in Atlanta that Gary Moore died Sunday from an apparent heart attack while vacationing with his girlfriend in Costa del Sol, Spain. He was 58. I was introduced to his music from a local guitarist with the song Still Got The Blues (for you). I have always liked that song and it really moves me. When I first saw my friend play it I swear he had tears in his eyes. I found it sad news that Gary Moore died at what I consider a relatively young age. May he rest in peace and his music endure.

Walk & Don't Look Back - Peter Tosh/Mick Jagger

Yesterday I listened to a used CD I had bought, Inna Reggae Stylle. The CD has several cover songs that are done in a Reggae style. I really liked how some of the songs were done. Of course there are others that I didn't care too much for, but that had more to do with the original song than the Reggae style. This song was nice and I woke up with it in my head this morning, and now for the chorus line
If you just put your hand in mine
We're gonna leave all our troubles behind
Gonna walk and don't look back
Gonna walk and don't look back

BTW, this CD is pretty hard to find. The video isn't too bad either. Enjoy.

Don't Let The Sun Go Down On Me - Elton John

As usual, I have no idea why this song was in my head this morning. I've just been feeling a bit beat down and solemn and alone. This one line seems to say it,

But losing everything is like the sun going down on me

Here's to hoping the winter will be over soon and brighter times ahead.

Sunday Kind Of Love - Etta James

I really like this song. It pretty much says what we all want to have and with such emotion. Anything less just isn't enough. Sundays can be special, relaxing and intimate and give one that feeling of a lasting relationship. Anything less and I'm just not interested. Lucky for me I'm married and very much in love; so I've got that "Sunday Kind of Love".

You Don't Know Me - Ray Charles

Yesterday I heard a Ray Charles song on the XM radio, but this wasn't the song; the song I heard was Them That Got. I'm not sure why I woke up with this song in my head because the people I love do know me; at least I think they do. Both songs can be found on the Visionary Soul CD. I couldn't find a video of Them That Got that features Ray Charles, so I only have videos of You Don't Know Me.

The first video is an old live one of Ray. The second video is a nice slideshow featuring Ray with Diana Krall.
