Almost Like the Blues ~ Leonard Cohen
I was driftin’ around…not that four wheel kind but maybe in there somewhere — when I heard this one on my iPod — I began to breach a huge smile. Feck, yes, Cousin Leo, yes!!!! Now he speaks from the place that very few performers and certainly no “Rock” folks vantage point. 80 years on the Blue Marble and still his poetic soul shines — one of my ward mates in the medico farm said something about it not really being singing….told him to take some more Thorazine and call the doc in the morning! Yes, please I’ll have some of what Leonard is having! Ironically, I am closer in age to Mr. Cohen than I am to my younger sister. Peace, love and heavy sauce, y’all!
She would tell of the danger of boys and men. How you would draw them into the light but they were not of it…….all of her gossamer dreams would lead her away with the clouds of distant memories!
" The Rhythm of Life " ~ Sammy Davis Jr. et al from Sweet Charity. I saw this on the stage way back when I was so young — forever a Bob Fosse fan! I wanna dance…..it’s that kind of a day as I’m free from all the shackles of the old medico shop!
Rainbow ~ Robert Plant
Its nice to be back…nice to see y’all! There have been a few skirmishes with the usual suspects and a few plagues upon my house…but I find that music, mirth and the company of good folks keeps one going on and going strong. So nice to Mr. Plant doing what he did once again like way back when he did it for us on the first intro….gem of a little album too! And Darlin’ Nicci says it’s ok for a bloke to say…”Emmm that there Robert Plant is one sexy old dude….” But back to the tune…. Love this tune for it’s drone which accompanied me in the tube scope MRI thing today….love to y’all!
