Don’t Worry, Be Happy

happiness is what we find at the end of the road

Right now, this minute, I’m damn happy.  I have walked away from the person who was making me miserable, and you can make no more positive step on the road to happiness than that.

Not the Bob Marley original, but a happy version nevertheless.

Don’t worry, be happy.

most folks are as happy as they make up their minds to be

Tunes on Tuesday ~ Loreena McKennit

Dark Night of the Soul

This song is a little bit the way I have been feeling recently.  Luckily, with the help of my friends, I am much, much better now.

Thank you everyone.

Please listen responsibly.

Songs on Saturday ~ I put a spell on you

you say ‘witch’ like it’s a bad thing…..

Some very sexually confident women are as close to being a witch, an enchantress, as most men are ever likely to meet.  It tends to make for a very one-sided relationship.  I should know, I’ve been exactly where Annie Lennox is singing about.  After a while it stops being fun.

If you fall in love with a witch you are in for an interesting, tortured time.

a which may be lying right next to him

Songs on Saturday ~ Sussudio

just say the word, and I’ll be yours

Some things defy description.  Some relationships defy memories.  Some words defy definition.  As far as I know the only dictionary definition of Sussudio is that it’s a tune by Phil Collins.  I remember playing this track very loud in my car, just to keep me awake ~ it was after midnight and I was coming back from somewhere I shouldn’t ever have been.  (Probably that pub.)

In some parts of the world a smart suit and tie is considered very cool. Personally, I think it’s a very masculine look.   Anyway, most hot sexy women like the smart and slightly preppy man

Please listen with a glad heart.

not much is cooler than a Mustang convertible

Music ~ The Cars

some say it’s a woman’s erotic little death

A ‘friend’ of mine sent me this song a long time ago.  You will not be surprised to learn that this is the only Cars track I know.  You might be surprised to know that girl and I have lost contact with each other.  So, I don’t know if Tonight She Comes.

This is for a far better friend of mine.

It is quite good fun, so please listen with a smile.

naughty or nice?

noisy or not?

Tunes on Tuesday ~ The B52’s

before I talk, I should read a book

You know what?  I never really understood that quotation ~ unless it’s about casual sex.  If it comes right down to it, I never really understood why the trash culture B52’s were so popular in the 70s and 80s, especially here in England.  Unless you happen to like Big Ugly Fat Fuckers. Anyhow, I liked Love Shack back then, and I still do.  Perhaps I just like shacks.

Please listen remembering back-roads America.

I also like long road trips.

I wonder if Biden will have much use for the BUFFs

Remembrance Sunday

at the 11th hour, on the 11th day, of the 11th month of 1918

the guns fell silent

The Third Battle of Ypres, also called the Battle of Passchendaele, was another of the horrific meat-grinders fought in Flanders Fields during the Great War.

In Flanders Fields the poppies blow

between the crosses row on row

In England today is Remembrance Sunday, many of us will wear a poppy, and remember the 887,888 dead from the United Kingdom and her then Colonies.

This song is a poignant reminder of those days.

Songs on Saturday ~ I’ll Be Watching You

it isn’t stalking if you don’t follow her home

This great track from British Band The Police is actually entitled Every Breath You Take, but the massage of the song is I’ll Be Watching You.  It kind of fits my mood today.  It isn’t the best love song ever written

Stalking?  Nope, not me, not ever.

Once I walk away, I walk away forever.

not exactly my kind of woman

Music ~ Lady in Red

sometimes the wrong woman will come along and ruin you life

It’s happened to me before, but the last wrong woman who crashed into my life was nowhere near as HOT as the Lady in this Chris de Burgh song.  Funny video too.

Please have fun listening.  We all need more fun right now.

the last wrong woman for me

was very much a dragon mistress

well, she often had dragon breath in the morning

Music ~ Lorena McKennitt

music can free your soul from the dungeon of your mind

Quite a few of my friends aren’t doing so well right now.  If it comes to that, neither England nor America are doing well ~ both our nations are in the doldrums and suffering deeply.  Perhaps this healing music from Lorena McKennitt can sooth all our troubled souls and hurting bodies.

Please listen peacefully, and know that someone cares deeply about you.

the ocean is mystical

I hope it will soothe your soul
