, This month I’m doing a 30-day song challenge following the prompts given by Donna from MyOBT, one of my favorite blogs. It sounded like so much fun I couldn’t resist. Feel free to join in on your social media platform, add your picks in the comments below, or simply enjoy (hopefully) the music I’ve chosen.

I’ve loved this song since I first heard it.  I was introduced to Jean Michel Jarre by a dear friend who was in the music business.  These days I couldn’t survive without the many albums by Jean Michel Jarre.  His music inspires meditation, recollection, and spinning to worlds I’ve never known.

This particular piece takes me back to a New Year’s Eve night with Dede and Diggy.  It had something to do with newspaper hats and bean dip.  RIP Dede and Diggy.  I think of you both when I hear this song.  And also Grandpa Mike, cuz of Diggy in his newspaper hat.

I’ve always loved this song.   Willie Nelson depicts such sorrow with this withered face and sad voice, and his “younger sister” (two years his senior) pulls at my heart with her talent on the piano.  Irving Berlin has a masterpiece here, written in 1923, and it was done by several musical talents over the years.  This rendition is my favorite, and always brings a tear to my eye for so many different reasons.

This song is done by one of my most favorite musicians, Cat Stevens.  His songs made me think, made me feel passionate, and most of all made me happy.  To add to the happy feeling is the fact that his music was the soundtrack for my most favorite movies of all time, Harold & Maude.  Find meaning.  Find purpose.  But most of all, find joy.

The Wall.  What an absolutely disturbing album, and an even more disturbing movie.  A favorite of mine on vinyl and film.  The song I chose for this prompt depicts, to me, the epitome of melancholy ~ a cross between utter despair and utter euphoria.  I sometimes wonder, if I’m actively dying with a bloodstream full of pain killers and/or other drugs, would I like to have this song playing?  Pink Floyd has been one of my favorite bands from very early on.

Day 7: A Song To Drive To

This month I’m doing a 30-day song challenge following the prompts given by Donna from MyOBT, one of my favorite blogs.  It sounded like so much fun I couldn’t resist.  Feel free to join in on your social media platform, add your picks in the comments below, or simply enjoy (hopefully) the music I’ve chosen.

It was a warm summer night. Cruising the streets of Minneapolis, on the back of a motorcycle driven by a guy I never would have guessed would want to be with me.  We stopped at an intersection. He reached back and gave my thigh a stroke. I’ll never forget that. I love this song blaring with the windows open while I drive, feeling wild and free.

I used to go out dancing a lot in my 20s. First Avenue was my danceteria of choice. Yes, that First Avenue, the one that got famous with Prince.  I loved that place back in the ’80s, and I was totally rockin’ it. Except I couldn’t dance. I was no good at it. Of course I didn’t realize it at the time, but c’est la vie, YOLO.  It was a blast.

I still like to move to the music, but mostly I’m alone when I’m doing the moving. As I’m older I rock out to stuff I hear, but one song that makes me think of myself and dancing is of course, Dancing With Myself. I’m sure everyone is happy that I’m happy dancing with myself, because I’m a terrible dance partner. I’d most likely embarrass anyone I’m dancing with, and am oblivious to the fool I make of myself.  Win win for everyone!

OK, is AC/DC ever played quietly?
