Songs on Saturday ~ Bette Davis Eyes

the key to life is accepting challenges
once someone stops doing this, he’s dead

I was always a precocious child; I developed abilities and inclinations at a much earlier age that was usual or expected of me.

Everybody has kindness in their eyes.  Except some people.

Please listen responsibly.

life is a sexual jest

and her eyes show it

Desert Journey

the immense desert, empty and inspired with spiritual promises

~

Like many Englishmen, from that green and pleasant land, I have a strong personal affinity for the desert.  I like the high plains and the heat of Red Rock Country in the late summer.  There is a simplicity about the desert, you are either right or you’re in deep trouble, and there’s little ground in-between.

And now, when England cowers cold beneath our autumn mists and morning frost, I yearn to be back in the blazing sunshine and heat of California, New Mexico, Arizona, or Nevada.  Preferably on a long spontaneous road trip, driving a Mustang convertible with a cool lady riding shotgun.

Sweetheart, yes it’s true, I’m so happy to be stuck with you

deep in red rock country

in that desert we pray to God

but we trust in ourselves as men

 

Tunes on Tuesday ~ Ladyhawke

a very sensual, strange, physically beautiful, dangerous place

Back in the day I spent a lot of time à Paris, la ville lumière.  I learned that, while Parisienne women look chic, they often smell of Galoises overlaid with a lot of Chanel #5.

~

Love Paris and you’re hung up on something that’s never going to love you back.

Songs on Saturday ~ Leo Sayer

Inside my heart may be breaking, my smile may be faking it, but the show must go on

Those of us with Borderline Personality Disorder may identify with this song.

Nice to know we are not the only crazy ones.

I always rent a Mustang,

that has to count for something.

 

Tunes on Tuesday ~ Creed

hold fast to your dreams, for if dreams die,
life is a broken-winged bird that cannot fly.

This track was introduced to me by a cool lady who follows this blog.  And, here’s the thing, the very first time I played this, it moved me man.

My life is exactly here.

Sometimes music is more than just sounds.

I was hoping for a weirder video track though but.

Please don’t get dragged down by responsibilities and expectations.

wants, needs, desires, dreams, and wishes

don’t ever let them go

Tunes on Tuesday ~ Rio

don’t spend your life getting high on booze and pot ~ get high on life

I chose this track just because I’m taking a vacation next week, (not in Rio).  But, listening to it again I’m pretty sure this ex-Monkee was high on something when he penned this song.

Anyhow, it’s a great warm-up for my vacation.

Please drink, smoke, and listen responsibly.

there’s a lot of this where I’m going

Songs on Saturday ~ At the River

life is a sea of shifting sand dunes, unpredictable and erratic

I like this song ~ rather strange accompanying video.

If my ship sails from sight it doesn’t mean my journey ends,

it simply means that the river bends.

please listen responsibly

Songs on Saturday ~ Rain

some people feel the rain, others just get wet

England, this green and pleasant land, where it rains a lot.

Different from the parts of America, where it’s dusty and hot.

Clouds came floating unbidden into my life, not to carry the life-giving rain, but to hide the beautiful rainbow of love.

Please listen responsibly.

singing in the rain is not my thing

I couldn’t carry a tune in a bucket

Tunes on Tuesday ~ Beer

he’s only ever been in love with a beer bottle and a mirror

You know what?  It turns out that beer is very bad for you.  Too much beer will make you bloated, fat, and stupid.  More beer than that will kill you.

How much is too much?  If you are who I think you are, then one beer is one too many for you.

Please drink responsibly.

a gentleman never drinks straight from the bottle or can

and real ladies don’t drink beer

Tunes on Tuesday ~ I’ll Find My Way Home

If you feel lost, it’s because the heart and mind are not in harmony.

I really need to find a way back home.

More importantly, I need to find a way back to myself.
