Tunes on Tuesday ~ Blues Brothers

everybody needs somebody to love

I first came across the Blues Brothers on a family vacation to Florida, which included visits to the theme parks.  In Walt Disney World there was a street performance of Blues Brothers music, nerdy but great.  I’ve liked the disreputable due ever since.

A black suit can look cool, but only if it’s clean and pressed.

Once in my lifetime I will perform that at a Karaoke pub.

Before you mock try following the dance moves.

Tunes on Tuesday ~ Travolta Strut

strut your stuff down main street

Another part of my morning routine, learning the ultra cool swaggering walk, aka the Travolta Strut.  I have this nailed, lots better than some Zebra.

You can tell by the way I use my walk that I’m a woman’s man.

Stayin’ alive ~ more than only just.

don’t try that walk if you’re a woman

it will make you look like a hooker

 

Waiting For A Star To Fall

she was like a falling star I tried to catch in my hands
I only got burned

All men eventually meet that one woman, that star that burns too bright in his heart.  All men dream of walking alone with her in the moonlight.  All men are destined to have their dreams and desires destroyed.  Lucky men come back from that and have some fun with someone who knows what love is.

there are nightmares calling,

shooting stars falling,

brightly burning,

for an instant.

Tunes on Tuesday ~ 1960s TV Dance

there’s nothing sexier than a 1960s TV star ~ maybe

Perhaps I’ve gone overboard on dance compilations today, but being a child of the sixties these clips bring back some memories.

Anyway I can dance a lot better than anyone and everyone in this compilation.

(Except Dick Van Dyke)

Tunes on Tuesday ~ TV Shows Dance Party

it can’t be bad if it makes you laugh

My only excuse for posting this is that it makes me feel happy.

I definitely don’t remember some of these TV shows.

Maybe we didn’t get them here in staid old England.

Burn Baby Burn is such a great track.

Farrah Fawcett was not the world’s best dancer

very 70’s hair though, (a natural blonde?)

 

Tunes on Tuesday ~ Fine Young Cannibals

dance isn’t just dancing, it’s magic

Dancing, or rather trying to dance to these music video compilations is just about the only exercise I’m getting these days.  This Fine Young Cannibals track isn’t as difficult as some of the others I’ve posted on here.

When you feel like quitting, think about why you started.

I Love the Teddy Bear.

Songs on Saturday ~ Writing’s On The Wall

the first draft is just me telling myself the story

Except the writing isn’t on the wall, or anywhere else for that matter.  Now the poetry anthology Seascapes and Serenity Lost is finished and published on Amazon, I feel the need for a new project, a new book, perhaps a collection of short stories.  Maybe I have a title Dreams of Desire, but no idea what the content is going to be.  Or how about a Bond spoof ~ maybe not.

From the James Bond movie Spectre.

You can do the pose if you wish.

Different music for me.

Tunes on Tuesday ~ I’m So Excited

dance is the joy of movement and the heart of life

When you’re in lockdown exercising at home is about your only choice when it comes to staying fit and healthy.  Try following along to this video ~ see if you can get past a couple of minutes……

I like these fun dance videos, they make me smile and encourage me to exercise.

Look out for Dr. Frankenstein and the Monster.

Please listen joyously.
