Songs on Saturday ~ Jackie Wilson

love and music can change the world

Recently I’ve been pretty sick with this fucking terrible COVID-19 thing.  My symptoms were fairly mild, and I’ve pulled through fairly quickly.  One of the reasons I’ve recovered so fast is the support and love my friends have given me ~ that’s marvelous and it’s also helping now that I’m in lockdown.

This Jackie Wilson song is for them.

The Fred Astaire  / Ginger Rogers clip goes brilliantly.  And who ya gonna call…..?  (You have to remember Ghostbusters to get the connection.)

Please listen with my thanks.

and she did it all backwards

in tall heels

barefoot sand

she left her footprints in the sand ~ she left her love in my heart

~

and I dream of her

her touch her eyes her hair

the way she left footprints in the sand

as we walked along that quiet beach together

musical voice speaking of a future, her small soft hand 

resting gently in mine

a perfect day lasts for eternity

in our memories

the gift of calmness

inner peace is true wisdom’s best reply

~

a silent sea

a solitary beach

love is within reach

what it would be to experience that numinous light

Tunes on Tuesday ~ Thank You

friends are the greatest treasure any man could wish for

It seems that I have contracted this horrible virus, and right now I feel like shit.  But, with the help and support of my friends I know I will be better soon.

This song is for them.

Thank you.

Songs on Sunday ~ 2002

meditation is not black magic, meditation is a relationship with yourself

For this Sunday some meditative music for you.  I have just discovered the band 2002, and they play some very cool tunes.  Try and breathe peacefully.

Meditation is sometimes difficult for me, but walking by the sea takes me to a very special place within my spirit.

Please listen responsibly.

everyone needs love

Tunes on Tuesday ~ Hoagy Carmichael

nothing is more meaningful than surrendering to love

Some say that money makes the world go around.  Looking at the world’s financial markets crashing, and loved ones dying, I’d say that it’s love that makes the world keep on turning.

Thinking of the things she’s said and the tone of her voice when she said them, what man could not be in love.

Please listen with care and affection.

I’d walk a thousand miles of track

just to see her smile.

the lust inside

older women dating younger men is about sex, not about love

~

she’s older, no lady

many boys have used her

and many still do

younger down on their luck

it isn’t ever love

it’s just a fast rough sex fuck

she gives it away

willingly, freely, rhythmically

one far off day

it will all haunt her memory

through bitter tears

~

she measures the men she sees

and still cries bitter tears

 

 

the burning fires of desire

the desire of a man is for his woman
the desire of a woman is for the desire of her man

~

she loves him again

eternal conflagration

hot fires of adoration

friends now yet they

parted way back when

what happened then?

mistrust between them

love tried and denied

yet true love will always

find way to return to her

~

they say that true love conquers all

when she appeals to his desire

they are perfectly right

 

Songs on Sunday ~ Lisa Gerrard

Sunday clears away the debris from the rest of the week

Something tells me that I should be posting more spiritual and inspirational music on Sundays than I’ve been doing thus far.  Ergo, this seems to be quite spiritual to me.

Lisa Gerrard is the most famous Australian singer, musician, and composer I’ve never heard of ~ a musical polymath and Renaissance woman.  Perhaps it’s time I listened to more of her work, on vinyl.

Please listen with reverence.

one man’s weed is another man’s wildflower

a final tryst

the doors of breath, seal with a righteous kiss
a dateless bargain to engrossing death

~

A winter midnight and the light was strange.  A glow that cascades, softly falling from darkness, carefully arranging long shadows cast in deep silver blackness.

A castle dark, a fortress strong, and set in the tallest lonely tower a locked room holds and coldly embraces the lovers’ fatal final tryst.

we will never be set free from these chains upon our love until we embrace the moonlight
