Love is learning the song in someone’s heart and singing it when they most need it.From the Hallmark Channel Christmas Movie “Christmas In Vienna”
Eddie Van Halen the guitar “god” that was a vital part of the hard rock scene for years died today. He was so talented and influential. His works will live on in memory. Thanks for the music and memories Eddie.
2020 can jump off a cliff!
I am using my new record player for the first time today. I was awaiting the first record I ordered, “Paradise Theater” by Styx to arrive before spinning some vinyl today. I am musically being transported back to my youth here.
The record player itself sounds good although a little more bass would be nice.
Get ready to rock. Ordered a fancy new record player today. Looking forward to some musical fun. I even ordered a record to go with it.
Oh I ordered some practical stuff too.
I wear the black for the poor and the beaten down Living in the hopeless, hungry side of town I wear it for the prisoner who has long paid for his crime But is there because he’s a victim of the timesJohnny Cash – The Man In Black
An appropriate song for the times we live in. This song is a protest song of sorts I think. He in his own way is aware of the plight of others and I so appreciate that.
This 40 year old song has some very timely relevance to what we are going through in the world right now. Sometimes music speaks volumes and expresses the angst that people are feeling right now. There is a glimmer of hope though.
This is a strong protest song that brings up the issue of racism in America. In “This Land” it talks about a black man who is American and fights those who think otherwise. Gary Clark, Jr. tells a strong story here.
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.
