When You Say Nothing At All - Alison Krauss

I'm just as surprised as anyone that this song was in my head when I woke up. It isn't even in my iTunes library; maybe it should be.

The video is nicer than what I've been able to find lately. It is a slide show with lyrics and the audio is pretty good..

A Lucky Guy - Rickie Lee Jones

I listened to this song a few days ago. This morning it was in my head. Believe it or not it is a song about heartbreak.

The video isn't so good and isn't sung by RLJ; it's sung by Vanessa Paradis. It is so hard to find good videos of RLJ songs. I believe that the RLJ version is better.

The second video is of a performance by Vanessa. Someday I need to learn how to make my own videos.

Nowhere To Run - Martha Reeves & The Vandellas

I just never know what song will pop into my head when I wake up. I'm not even sure if this is the one, but if it's not it is close. I was able to find this song in my iTunes library off the CD Good Morning Vietnam soundtrack.

The video below is pretty old; so the sound isn't so good. I choose this video in favor of others that weren't videos but had better sound because it's actually a video.
Nowhere to run to, baby
Nowhere to hide
Got nowhere to run to, baby
Nowhere to hide

It's not love
I'm running from
It's the heartaches
That I know will come

'Cause I know
You're no good for me
But you`ve become
A part of me

Breakin' It Down - Petalpusher

Yesterday I listened to a lot of music and trying to fine lyrics to some of the songs in my iTunes library. This was one of them, so it comes as no surprise that this song would be in my head this morning.

I was first introduced to this song on the Bare Essentials Vol 1 CD. I like this series of CD's as well as other produced by Naked Music. BTW, I wasn't able to find the lyrics, bummer...

As it turns out I blogged about this song almost a year ago.

Waves Of Change - Samantha James

I recently went to California for business. I took an iPod with me to listen to music on the plane. I chose to listen to relaxing music and music that I haven't listened to very much. This is one of the albums that I listened to. This morning this song was in my head. It's nice and I enjoy it.

The first video is the music from the CD. The second video says its from the Kaskade Extended Remix, sounds like it has a bit of a different beat. The third video says it's the ambient mix, at least it has a slide show.

It's a Pity - Tanya Stephens

I've been waking up with this song in my head for some time now. I'm not really sure why. I've been working a lot lately and I'm tired. In that way it's a pity I work so much because then I can't ride my bike and I can feel it in my body that I really need the exercise or I'll just fall over dead. Yeah, I know... sounds like self-pity, doesn't it?

I did a post on this song some time back and there is an excellent video there with lyrics. No need to re-post that video.

Below is a different sort of mix or dub of It's a Pity. Just a different take. I actually found a couple of these mix/dubs. I liked this one the best as far as this style goes.

Below is a video of Tanya doing an acoustic version.

I Just Want to Celebrate - Rare Earth

It's been a while since I last posted. I've really been busy with work; in fact, I still am.

I still wake up with music in my head every morning, but lately it's the same songs, songs that I've already posted about. This morning is a little different, so I thought I would write a post.

Yes, I want to celebrate life, just like the song says. It's great to be alive and I will survive and I will celebrate.

The video may seem a little odd as it is a surfing video. That's ok; it's about the music and it's about celebrating life.

Fallin' - Alicia Keys

I haven't heard this song in a while so it is interesting that it should be playing in my head when I woke up this morning. It's a wonderful song and sung with much felling. But then love is rather intense with so many ups and downs.

I have this song rated as a four in my iTunes library, but it sure comes close to a five, wish there was a way to give it 4.5 stars.

I couldn't spend too much time searching for videos. It's amazing to me that several that I viewed had advertisements in the beginning; I selected one without an advertisement. A nice video with good sound.
