So what do you do for fun when your college Marching Band days (above) are over?   Less than about 10 or 12 of them are actually music majors, the rest are students from other disciplines.  

I know... start a band!!!  Or join the alumni band.  

Boy, have things changed...that must be the majorettes... Is that Madonna?

Have you ever stopped to consider that we are riding on a celestial sphere spinning at approximately 1000-mph, traveling through space at 67,000 mph, in a solar system spinning around the center of its galaxy at 560,000 mph... all moving roughly in the direction of the bright star Vega in the constellation of Lyra (or something like that)?  

Do you have a better frame of reference now?  

Ah, things make sense now...

Yeah, I love that big band music!  

Anybody recognize this tune?   (Hint: "Love Me or Leave Me.")

Hmmmm.... when he gets to the part: "and I guess there's no, getting over you..." 

I think of "The Mary Tyler Moore Show"  theme song "Love Is All Around."  Why is that?  





P.S.. your website clock is off. :)

British TV show called "Blackpool" features classic songs.  I've been there on that tram by the sea, the amusement park, and on those casino piers.

- "Always Something There To Remind Me" ... continued -

Burt Bacharach and Hal David write such great songs... there are many versions of this song and they are all pretty good... which is a testament of the strength of the music and lyric.  It is hard to mess up a good song.  I like most of them... especially these two I found.  Maybe it's just because I love Bossa.  

First, the "Lounge Lizard Special"  


Jose hits a home run with this one.

Who doesn't know this song from 1984?  Dan Hartman wrote this song for "Hall and Oates" but they had just finished an album and couldn't fit it on the record.   So Dan released the song himself.... the rest is history.  

It's got soul...

A poem by Kermit and Nick.  

August skies golden tint,
Summer yawns stretching.
Cool night's slumbering breeze,
Demark a season changing.
Awaken gently oh color to bloom,
September your welcome appearing.

By the way, the title of my poem above is "September."  

Swedish singer Petra Marklund... also known by her stage name "September."  I like her music... she makes me feel like 18 all over again.

Remember when... it seemed like every other song on the radio was either Don Henley, Def Leppard, John Cougar Mellencamp,  or Gloria Estefan.

I still like Gloria's songs.  I thought she was great.


Picture in your mind 1990, 9:00 p.m., your brain is fried from working late at the office... Then this song (below) comes on the radio, and reaches subtly into your heart, mind, and soul; and you realize, it's time to go home!

This is not the best audio quality, but it shows how good Gloria Estefan really is.  She sings from her heart.  No pretendo.  ♥  ♥

Il ne sera pas long jusqu'à ce que l'hiver, vous devez profiter du temps chaud pendant que vous le pouvez.  

Creuser cette musique.

Does anyone have a nice jazz guitar like this collecting dust? 

We share a first name, but this isn't me.  But it could be, if I only had a nice jazz guitar.  


Nobody sings it better... ♥  Kudos to Paul Weston and the Orchestra too!

I found a jazz guitar I like for a good price and value...  An Ibanez AG95.



Now this is art.
