Confetti - Vonda Shepard

Yesterday I was listening to a smart playlist I've named Soundtracks 50. It contains 50 random songs from soundtrack CD's which I have many. One of the songs in the playlist is Confetti from the Heart and Soul CD featuring songs from the show Ally McBeal. So really it comes as no surprise that one of the songs I listened to yesterday would be in my head when I woke up this morning. I haven't listened to the Ally McBeal CD's in years.

The video is not a video at all, just the music. Too bad. There are other videos, but not with this song. So, I've included a second video of Searching My Soul which is on a different CD.

Lowdown - Boz Scaggs

I have no Idea why this song was in my head when I woke up this morning. To be honest I didn't really know who the artist was or what the name of the song was. I didn't even know any of the lyrics; I just knew the music.

So I went to my iTunes library and enabled the column browser by artist and then went through the list of artist making educated guesses. Lucky for me it didn't take to long to realize that the artist was Boz Scaggs. Next was finding the song. I got it on my 2nd click. I only have two Boz Scaggs CDs in my library.

My wife and I went to a Boz Scaggs concert once at the Beau Rivage in Biloxi. It was a great show. I think the Beau Rivage is the best place to see a show; every seat seems to be a good one.

This video claims to be a jazz remix. It's an interesting twist.

Running Out On Me - Robben Ford

This song is in my rollers playlist. I enjoy listening to it; it has a good beat and rhythm. Not much else to say about. At least not at the moment. I just wanted to post it because that is what I woke up with.
Never a tear across that cheek
No sign of sympathy,
for a man who's feeling weak
Walkin's much to slow,
so your runnin' out on me

I think I get it now. He fell in love, but his girl is leaving. She's not just walking away; she's running.

Red Light Special - TLC

Last night I listened to this song on my iTouch after a rollers workout. One of the features of the iTouch is that you can view the lyrics as you listen to the song if you have saved lyrics in iTunes which I had for this song. It is the first time that I have read the lyrics. Let's just say that I am looking forward to a Red Light Special.
Baby it's yours, All yours
If you want it tonight
I'll give you the red light special
All through the night
Baby it's yours, All yours
If you want it tonight
Just come through my door
Take off my clothes
And turn on the red light
The video is labeled as official. I don't know that it is for a fact, but it is a nice video.

Run-Around - Blues Traveler

You just never know what is going to pop into my head when I wake up in the morning. Interesting... the lyrics that is.

Once upon a midnight dreary
I woke with something in my head
I couldn't escape the memory
Of a phone call and of what you said
Like a game show contestant with a parting gift
I could not believe my eyes
When I saw through the voice of a trusted friend
Who needs to humor me and tell me lies
Yeah humor me and tell me lies
And I'll lie too and say I don't mind
And as we seek so shall we find
And when you're feeling open I'll still be here
But not without a certain degree of fear
Of what will be with you and me
I still can see things hopefully

Telegraph Road - Dire Straits

Woke up this morning with a bunch of Dire Straits songs running through my head. It was as if they were all playing at the same time. Finally Telegraph Road came to the top.

I have always liked Dire Straits. I'm not sure that I have ever listened to the album Alchemy all the way through until the other day. Really quite a nice album.

The videos below are in two parts. There is a third video that is just a guitar solo. Really nice song. Enjoy.

Part I

Part II

This video is a nice guitar solo.
