Stare Into The Sun - Graffiti6

This song has been in my head off and on for a few days; this morning it was in my head when I woke up. I've been riding my bike on the rollers three days in a row now. That is why this song is my head as it is on my iPod Shuffle. It's a great song to ride to while riding on the rollers.

This is the second song off the Grey's Anatomy Vol. 4 CD that I have blogged about. There are several songs off that CD that are in my playlist that I really like. Makes me wonder if I shouldn't listen to the other songs on the CD again to see if they also deserve to be on my playlist.

I've included two videos. The first one is pretty strange, but still interesting. The second one is just the lyrics.

Family Affair - Sly and Family Stone

The other day this song came to mind. My wife was helping her mother and brother. I was called to help out too. Later, our daughter brought some food for us to eat. This song just popped in my head; it was truly a family affair. I started singing the song. I think my wife was the only one that got it.

I was shocked to find that I don't have this song in my iTunes library. It is not on the Greatest Hits CD, but it is on the Essential CD which is a 2 CD set.

I once saw Sly and Family Stone live in Mobile, AL. It was a good show. They were actually the opening act for Wet Willie that day. I have to say that the Sly show was more memorable but there was a lot of excitement for the Wet Willie show. That was a long time ago.

I've included two videos. The first is most typical. The second is a live recording from 2007. Enjoy.

Father and Son - Cat Stevens

I haven't been waking up with music in my head lately. I think it has to do with new medicine I'm taking. None the less, this morning I woke up with this song in my head.

I searched my iTunes for Cat Stevens and this is the only song that I have in my iTunes library by him and it was on the Pirate Radio Soundtrack CD. I find it interesting that the only Cat Stevens song I have in my iTunes library is the same song that was in my head when I woke up this morning.

The bigger question is why this song on this day? I don't exactly know, but I find it doubly interesting that my son has come home for the weekend from college. Like any dad, I worry about him, and I miss him quite a bit. That said, I know he has to find his own way, I just hope that he will at least listen to the advice and precautions I have tried to teach him.

So, this song is for my son. Follow your dreams; find your own way; be happy. I have taught you what I can, and I will always be here for you. And yes, a good women can really help with the journey.

Entwined - Tim Myers

I'm sort of a day late on this post because this is my Valentine's song. I really didn't come up with it until near the end of the day when I was listening to my music while riding the rollers. This song played and then it hit me; this was the song for the day. This was the song for Valentine's Day.

This song is on the Grey's Anatomy Vol. 4 CD. I can't tell you how happy I was when they finally release Vol. 4. There are several good songs that I have put on my playlist. I can't say enough about this particular song. It is really a great song.

Bottom line: I was made for you.
