“Rowdy” Roddy Piper “Hold On Tight” Music Video

Friday , 7, August 2015 Comments Off on “Rowdy” Roddy Piper “Hold On Tight” Music Video

On last Monday night’s WWE RAW show and Thursday night’s WWE Smackdown show, they played this song with a video montage tribute of clips from the career of the late “Rowdy” Roddy Piper. It fit perfectly with his pro wrestling career. When I went searching for the song I came upon the original music video, […]

Welcome Summer Solstice – In The Summertime

Sunday , 21, June 2015 Comments Off on Welcome Summer Solstice – In The Summertime

Happy Summer Solstice. Here’s Mungo Jerry and their only hit song in the U.S. from 1970, In The Summertime.

It’s difficult to believe it has been 30 years since “Easy Lover” was released. That’s half my lifetime ago! But it’s still one of the songs on my “Favorites” playlist to this day. Back when it was first released I was already a fan of Genesis, the band Phil Collins was a member of, and […]

Cold, Celtic Thunder, Fantastic Four & Jogging

Saturday , 31, January 2015 Comments Off on Cold, Celtic Thunder, Fantastic Four & Jogging

I’m finally beginning to feel human again, after a week of whatever this cold/flu illness was that I had. I’ve still got a bit of cough and congestion and I’m still feeling very tired, but at least I don’t have all those things magnified along with the aches, fever and headache I went through most […]

…RCA introduced the 45-rpm record on this date in 1949? It wasn’t the first flat record – that honor belonged to the old 78-rpm, which had been around since the late 1880s. But the 78 was big – about 10 inches in diameter – and because the grooves were wide and it spun around fast, […]

Happy Birthday, Elvis Presley

Thursday , 8, January 2015 Comments Off on Happy Birthday, Elvis Presley

Today would have been the 80th birthday of Elvis Aaron Presley, had he not passed away on August 16, 1977 at the age of 42. My mother was a huge fan of everything Elvis, so from an early age I grew up with his presence in my life in the form of his music in […]

Bluesfest 2005, Beautiful Bobby Blackmon & “Travelin’ Home”

Friday , 19, December 2014 Comments Off on Bluesfest 2005, Beautiful Bobby Blackmon & “Travelin’ Home”

Back around the first of November, just before we were going to leave Wolf’s Haven to return to Orlando, I decided I wanted to go through all of my CD’s and burn them into mp3’s so I  could have all my music on my iPhone. As it turned out, I ran out of time before […]

Friday , 12, December 2014 Comments Off on My Favorite Version Of “(I’m Dreaming Of A) White Christmas”

Out of all the dozens, if not hundreds, of artists and versions of “White Christmas” I’ve heard over the years, this is my favorite version.

All I Want For Christmas Is You – Mariah Carey

Thursday , 4, December 2014 Comments Off on All I Want For Christmas Is You – Mariah Carey

I’m working on a post about Holiday songs that will be ready  in a couple of days, but until then I thought I’d post my favorite Rock and Roll Holiday song video by the wonderful Mariah Carey. It’s three weeks until Christmas Day and chances are I will listen to this song each of those 21 days. […]

Baby You Can Drive My Car

Friday , 18, April 2014 Comments Off on Baby You Can Drive My Car

My granddaughter Abby has been walking around singing the song from “Frozen”, a couple of songs by Katy Perry and other “latest hits” so I decided it was time to get her acquainted with some of the classics, and what better band than the greatest of all time, The Beatles? A couple of nights we […]
