Is it possible for a song to both relax and energize you at the same time? Yep.

Zig, have you ever been to Beale Street? This song makes me feel like I'm there.

 

Regrettably, no. But I get it...

The other night, I added Pandora to my ROKU channels and selected something like "Blues Guitarists" (I love the Blues!!). In an hour's time, I heard no less than three versions of this song including a live performance by Eric Clapton from 1999. Great song.  

To the fountain of perpetual mirth, Let it roll for all its worth.

If you ever do make it down to Memphis, let me know, and mom and I can be your personal tour guides. She's lived there for 70 years now. I grew up there and go back and visit as often as I can.

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8I've only driven through it on my way across country. I so wanted to stop and soak in the musical history but unfortunately our itinerary did not allow for it. I must make it a point to go there. I loved New Orleans and Charleston, SC for their historical attractions (not necessarily musical history) and imagine Memphis must be very similar.

I may have to take you up on your offer someday.

We can make plans, definitely. Mom and I have played Memphis tour guide to many, many people through the years. We have a blast doing it.

Regarding the above conversation (not sure what exactly would be best to quote), I've been to Beale Street.  I ate at B.B. King's, went to some shops, did tourist-y stuff, and saw some bands.  It was good fun.

Anyhow, nobody would like what I'm listening to besides me, so I'm just going to pass this time around.  I just wanted to say that Beale Street thing.

I'm Necko.  I'm like Ringo except I wear necklaces.

Glad you've had the pleasure of savoring Beale Street. In honor of you and Zig, I'm listening to this right now.

I'm feeling extremely patriotic tonight (give us back Northern Ireland, you English ba.... and the like)

So:

 

Let it be known, that I in no way support the IRA, I think they are cowards who kill innocent men, women and children in order to "win" a country that Ireland won't see back at least in my lifetime. No Northern Irish want it back and to be honest only ignorant Republicans want it back-in that it's debt would sink the R.O.I to whatever depths are still left in hell.

But I'm all for a good sing-song

Because of the mash-up with Daft Punk at the Grammys, I've been listening to Stevie Wonder's "Another Star."

^^^ I could never get into Nirvana. I'm sorry, but I don't really get what's meant to be so great about them. Judging by the number of fans they seem to have, though, I must be missing something.

This is what I'm listening to:

I've recently been on a voyage of discovery of classical music and, though I knew about this a long time ago and liked it, I love it even more now I have a deeper understanding of this type of music.

Moving along in our God given ways, safety is sat by the fire/Sanctuary from these feverish smiles, left with a mark on the door.

I went through a grunge phase when it was the thing. At the time it spoke to me, and I still like Alice in Chains. Ironically, though, my favorite Nirvana song is their acoustic version of "About a Girl" which isn't so grungy (but maybe not so ironic since the song was inspired by repeat listens of Meet the Beatles). Nowadays, I like the Foo Fighters far more.

I never really got into grunge, even though the first radio station I ever interned at was a modern rock station (which in 1995, meant grunge and LOTS of it). Back then, I was into classic rock more. I've come to appreciate grunge a little more now, but it's still not my cup of tea.

As for what I'm listening to today, it's Nickel Creek's excellent cover of Bob Dylan's "Tomorrow is a Long Time." Sara Watkins' singing KILLS me here. Makes you want to hold her and tell her it'll be all right.
