In all we are experiencing these days this song sounds fitting as an expression of grief. In this video the late Tom Petty is doing vocals in this all-star band. Then the late Prince comes on and just rocks one of the best guitar riffs ever.
So many people are weeping and its only appropriate that guitars do the same. People need to be loved even in sad times. It’s important we do love because its needed so much now.
For today’s Sonic Saturday I am serving up some 1990’s groove. Passion by Dionne Farris is one of those songs that has some killer vocals with some great guitar rifts with tight bass lines. Her voice is pure soul and power.
Little Richard is one of the fathers of Rock and Roll. He passed away on May 9, 2020. Born Richard Wayne Penniman, Little Richard had a stellar career in music and lived a very full and colorful life. He influenced many artists whose work we are all familiar with. He leaves behind a legacy of music that we will remember for years to come.
On this Sonic Saturday (one day late, sorry) I present “Human Touch” by Rick Springfield. So many people are in need of the touch of another human being. Whether it be holding hands or hugging everyone needs some measure of contact. Until we can be together again we have to keep holding on to the memory of what physical contact is like. Of course some folks are happy to be touch free and that’s cool they can be cared for in a different way. No matter what we all need that human touch.
