She's Got Issues - Offspring

When I first woke up this morning there wasn't much activity at all; I had slept quite soundly. Slowly this song, She's Got Issues came into my mind. It is a carry over from my rollers session.

I think it is kind of a cool song and nice to ride rollers to. After listening to this song some more I think I might have to listen to some more songs by Offspring.

The video is not what I expected for this song, but it is a video and the audio is of a good quality.

American Girl - Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers

I rode the rollers yesterday evening; so a song from the playlist was bound to be in my mind this morning. I woke to American Girl in my head. Good beat, good rhythm. The video comes from the days of Midnight Special, a show we used to watch that come on at midnight. I don't remember if it was Friday or Saturday nights, but it was a must watch show for us kids.

Hawkmoon 269 - U2

Woke up with this song in my head. I'm really not a U2 fan, but the Rattle & Hum album is one of my all time favorites. I was first turned on to this album by one of my cousins many years ago.

I like to ride my bike to this song; it has such a good beat. In fact, the whole album is good to ride the bike to.

I was reviewing the lyrics this morning; not quite what I was expecting. It's kind of like an addiction; this need of your love. I wish I understood the origin of the lyrics. Non the less, I like the song and I like the album, great music.

The video below is a slideshow someone put together; not bad.

Kiss On My List - Hall & Oats

I nice song to have on the brain when I wake up in the morning. I wonder why this song is not in my music library.

New York Afternoon - Rare Silk

Back in the early 80's I lived in Boulder, Colorado. During my time there I had the pleasure of seeing Rare Silk several times: a couple of times at the Boulder Theater and once at the Blue Note. Their harmony is nothing less than amazing.

The other morning while in Atlanta I played this song from my iTunes for my wife. It is good music to wake up to; at least I think so. For a couple of days afterward this song was in my head, so I thought I should write a short post about it.

This song is found on the New Weave album. This album is very hard to find and I no longer have one in my possession; my album disappeared in a house fire. Some day I hope to find a good CD of this album.

The below video is old and the sound quality isn't very good, but it is the only video I could find for a live performance of this song.

This video isn't really a video, but the audio is good so that you can better hear the music.

Worried Life Blues - Robben Ford

Great blues song. I woke up with this in my head this morning. This song is on one of my playlist that I like to ride rollers to.

Breakdown - Tom Petty

This is the song I woke up with this morning. Not too sure why (I never do). It is on my playlist that I like to ride my bike to when riding the rollers. Maybe that is why it is stuck in my head somewhere.

Love Her With a Feeling

I woke up with several songs on my head this morning. The one that came to the top was Love Her With a Feeling as done by Taj Mahal. Well I couldn't find that on YouTube. I did find a version performed by Eric Clapton. I guess that will do. Eric Clapton does a great job, but I do like the version by Taj Mahal that I listen to when I ride my bicycle on the rollers.

Yes, you got to love her with a feeling. But guess what ladies, you too got to love him with a feeling, or someone else will; it works both ways.

Another Taj Mahal song that was on my mind was Ain't Nobody's Business. I found this video that was put together to an old silent movie. Interesting, but not quite the version I listen to.

Now this is the version of that song I had in mind. Not really a video, just music.
