Johnny Cash – Man In Black

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 times

Johnny 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.

Sonic Saturday – Prince, Tom Petty, Steve Winwood, Jeff Lynne and Others: While My Guitar Gently Weeps

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.

Sonic Saturday: Too Much Time On My Hands – Styx

Introducing Sonic Saturday. I am going to post some music videos on Saturday that are relevant to what’s going on today and come from my point of view.

Too Much Time On My Hands is a classic track from the classic rock group Styx. When you think about it we all have more time on our hands these days and you know there’s nothing wrong with that.

Farewell Daryl “Captain” Dragon of The Captain and Tennille

When I was a kid my dad would play some of his favorite music on our home stereo system. The Captain and Tennille was in a way part of the soundtrack of my childhood. You may have heard of this dynamic duo or at least some of their songs at the mall or elsewhere. Daryl Dragon and Toni Tennille were married and performed together for a long time. Daryl passed away today and it’s another reminder that the entertainers of my youth are leaving this world as we all do. Thanks for the musical memories and rest in power Daryl “Captain” Dragon.
