We Got By - Al Jarreau

Happy 26th Anniversary

That's right, it's our 26th wedding anniversary. I was trying to figure out what song to post. I decided that I would pick a song off of a playlist that I created for my wife a few years back. There are several songs on the playlist by Al Jarreau and they are all off the Tenderness CD and this is one of those songs.

I always find this song very touching. In the early years of our marriage we didn't have much; I was a student. I didn't worry very much about it. We got by...

As the years went on we got more comfortable. We did more than just get by.

Lately times have been very tough. We are truly struggling. But, we are getting by.

Happy Anniversary!

Staring At The Sun - The Offspring

There were many songs going through my head this morning as I was waking up. When I finally got up this is the song that came to the top. The only time I listen to this song is when I'm riding my bicycle on the rollers. It is unbelievable how fast I can spin and keep spinning while listening to this song. I think this is a really good song for workouts.

Shake Your Tailfeather - Ray Charles

When I was riding the rollers the other night I was listening to a Blues Brothers playlist. I've had Blues Brothers tunes in my head ever since. This song is on the Definitive Collection CD. I'll be one of the first to admit that one needs to be in the mood to listen to Blues Brothers. It worked out pretty good for me the other night riding rollers.

How about Ray's Music Exchange from the Blues Brothers movie? A great clip to remember.

Dry Spell - Pepper

Thanks to a roller session last night on my bike I woke up with this song in my head. Not too much else to say about it. I do enjoy listening to Pepper, at least the songs that I have in my iTunes library.

I don't know why, but I haven't had much music in my head lately. It could be because I quit smoking and I'm not a happy person lately. In fact, I've been a pretty angry person lately. There is no doubt in my mind that smoking is a drug.

Make some sense of this:
Whom God bless let no man curse
The first will be the last
and the last will be the first
