Tunes on Tuesday ~ Casablanca

Humphrey Bogart, Ingrid Bergman ~ As Time Goes By

In Casablanca, Rick never said; ‘Play it again Sam’, but he should have

Women can drive a man to remember, and to think

all that may make a guy so take just one more drink

and booze does no good, but his love is treacherous

he can do better, and he will always have memories

I never truly told a friend how much I loved her, and I should have.

Songs on Saturday ~ Robert Palmer

A woman in love with her life is simply irresistible to men.

lovable

irresistible

utterly sexual

just unthinkable

you’re unforgivable

love’s lust permissible

passions understandable

she’s just simply irresistible

Some other sorts of women seem to be irresistible to some sorts of impressionable men

It’s really understandable

Songs on Saturday ~ Billy Ocean

I get knocked down, but I get up again
you are never gonna keep me down

Some say that when the going gets tough, the tough get going.  And, it’s not how many times you get knocked down that matters, but how many times you get up again.  All I know is that when you’re walking through Hell, you’d better keep going.

From the movie The Jewel of the Nile.

Please listen responsibly.

get off your damn ass and get out of your comfort zone

Songs on Saturday ~ Billy Joel

There are no moralities nor rules to be found in arson.

This is a live version of the song ~ not the single release.  I like the raw energy, and the pictures.  (The lyrics are cool too.)

You know what?  If you can’t handle me at my very worst, then you sure as hell don’t deserve me at my very best.  You have lit the spark in my bonfire heart, and I don’t want to get burned again.

Please listen responsibly.  And, never, ever play with fire.

“I don’t know who invented high heels, but all women owe him a lot…..”

“give a girl the right shoes, and she can conquer the world…..”

Tunes on Tuesday ~ Shania Twain

Never try to impress a woman ~ she’s seen and heard it all before.

What’s likely to impress a woman, and what isn’t?

Outside of a new love’s first bliss, I don’t know any really cool woman who isn’t going to think this line is totally sick making;  The darkest hour of my day is the hour in which I don’t get to see you.  ~  Amit Kalantri.  It’s a cute line, but to me it’s not cool, and not impressive.

Actually, that may not be quite true, it’s all about the mood, the moment, the time, the place, and the delivery.  But, in my experience, a line like that is just trying too hard.

In general terms, the harder a guy tries to impress a cool, mature, together woman, the less impressed she is likely to be.  The thing is, boys have been trying to impress her ever since they first noticed that she was a girl ~ so you’ve got twenty years of her cynicism to overcome.

Unless you’re Steve McQueen forget about impressing her, and just be true to yourself.  If that’s not enough then politely say goodbye ~ some say there’s always a nicer, prettier, sexier girl just around the corner.  Me I’m not always so certain.

Next to Snoopy, who was ever cooler?

Songs on Saturday ~ Alicia Keys

New York, if you can make it there, you can make it anywhere.

I want to wake up in a city that doesn’t sleep

And find I’m king of the hill, top of the heap

I like New York, I like the Plaza, the Monkey Bar, the Circle Line, Saks on 5th, and eating at Lincoln Square Steak.  I don’t like gypsy cabs, the subway, Times Square, or Central Park.

Please listen responsibly.

In New York, “have a nice day…..” doesn’t mean what you think it means.

Songs Saturday ~ Tom Petty

This above all; to thine own self be true.

Something I re-learned this week.  Your comfort zone is nothing but a prison of your own making.  And that when we allow parents, family, friends, coworkers, or those in authority to rule our lives we are just adding another set of bars to our own prison.

Be yourself, turn up for life, and don’t back down.

Please listen responsibly.

Englishmen say ‘sorry’ as often as Americans say “have a nice day”  ~  and both are meaningless

I’ve Been Thinking of Someone

women are to be adored, and perhaps understood

The weather in this little northern town has been pretty good today, for England in May that is.  Ergo I took a myself for a walk, and that turned into 11 miles of physical effort, mental introspection, and spiritual enlightenment.

While I was walking I thought of a woman I know.

I don’t know her as well as I would like.

This song is for her.

a man will never find the Goddess of the moon by searching for her

music from a friend

The past is over, nothing reminds me of you.

I’m a guy.

I’m a bit older.

I’m very English.

My tastes are solid, maybe staid, and perhaps a bit inflexible.  Art, Cars, Clothes, Food, Music… I seem to be one of those guys who thinks he knows what he likes and is reluctant to try something new.

Sometimes the new is surprising and apposite.  As luck would have it, it just so happened that a friend sent me a couple of albums by a guy I’d never heard of; Ben Taylor.  I liked his dad.

A track has the lyrics;

She always wants what she can’t have

Life is so cruel

She’s always good when she’s so bad

What can’t she do?

~

the killer line is;

She’s always thinking of someone, that’s how it goes…

~

Story of my life.  All the women I have known always seem to be thinking of someone else.

~

Sometimes, just once, I’d like to know someone who wasn’t always living in the past.  Who wanted to show me their colourful shoes, just because it’s me, and not because they really belong to someone else.

Letting yesterday affect today will only destroy the excitement of tomorrow.  ~  Michelle Cruz-Rosado

Sometimes, it’s more than I can take.  Life goes on regardless.  The best is yet to come.

let me be your teddy bear

Lonely Little Bear

dscf0007Marmaduke and I are pals, but as you can tell from his recent pictures he misses his girl, so he’s thinking of joining a lonely hearts club.

He’s an affectionate and loving little bear.

He’s also a very handy teddy bear.

And, Marmaduke can cook.

He sings better than Presley, (at least Marmaduke thinks he sings better than Elvis Presley).

Please listen responsibly.
