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, […]
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 […]
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 […]

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.
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. […]
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 […]
