For 1/13/19 ~ “Madhouse”

Thank you Jim for being the best guest host ever!!¬† Thank you Paula for the prompt – laughter.¬† Here goes nothing y’all.

I picked “Madhouse” by Anthrax from their¬† “Spreading the Disease” album circa 1985.¬† I was knee-deep in my “sticking it to the man” phase.¬† I feel like that patient some days and my laugh sounds about the same when I am in that mood.¬† And again I am enigma.

Interesting tidbits from Wikipedia:

Doctor, Doctor has been covered by several heavy metal bands, most notably by Iron Maiden.[1] Additionally, the song is played over the PA at Iron Maiden concerts before the band takes the stage.[2]

I am being very nostalgic today.  I never saw UFO, I was only 10 when they were touring but Iron Maiden was a staple concert.  Every time they came through SA we were there!! Good memories for sure.

Hope you enjoy even 1/2 as much as I do.

For 12/30/18 ~ “Brave New World”

I had a hard time deciding.¬† Nothing came to mind immediately.¬† When I searched everything was New York.¬† I wanted new … just new. I finally landed on “Brave New World” by Iron Maiden.

Dying swans twisted wings, beauty not needed here
Lost my love, lost my life, in this garden of fear
I have seen many things, in a lifetime alone
Mother love is no more, bring this savage back home

Wilderness house of pain, makes no sense of it all
Close this mind dull this brain, Messiah before his fall
What you see is not real, those who know will not tell
All is lost sold your souls to this brave new world

A brave new world, in a brave new world
A brave new world, in a brave new world
In a brave new world, a brave new world
In a brave new world, a brave new world

Dragon kings dying queens, where is salvation now
Lost my life lost my dreams, rip the bones from my flesh
Silent screams laughing here, dying to tell you the truth
You are planned and you are damned in this brave new world

A brave new world, in a brave new world
A brave new world, in a brave new world
In a brave new world, a brave new world
In a brave new world, a brave new world

A brave new world, in a brave new world
A brave new world, in a brave new world
In a brave new world, a brave new world
In a brave new world, a brave new world

Dying swans twisted wings, bring this savage back home

For 12/2/18 ~ “You’re The First, The Last, My Everything”

Last is the prompt.¬† I immediately hear the sweet soulful sound of Barry White “You’re the first, you’re the last, my everything.”¬† Now I have an ear worm and don’t even want to look for anything else even though I am almost positive someone else will pick this song too.¬† I hope there are multiples and I hope you enjoy.

For 11/25/18 ~ “The First Noel”

I wanted to skip the whole trappings of Christmas once upon a time but the family wouldn’t let me.¬† Correction¬†Lulu wouldn’t let¬†us!¬† She persisted and while we have scaled back and the tree is much smaller, we continue to put one up.

This time of year is difficult for a whole host of reasons but I like the approach Helen took in deciding that being¬† a Grinch last year (her words) didn’t make her happy so this year she is choosing to be festive and it’s working.¬† Our minds are powerful, titanium.

And I know you’re likely thinking get on with it would ya!¬† This isn’t a talking posting, it’s a sing along song post for #SLS.¬† My choice might not be everyone’s cup of tea but reminds me of singing in the choir at church.¬† Awesome memories which lend to feeling festive.¬† Here’s hoping my mind tricks continue to work :).

Without further ado and in the theme of the season, I offer “The First Noel”

For 11/11/18 ~ “Drift Away”

Helen gave us the prompt “soul” and my first thought was the Blues Brothers movie and¬† “Soul Man” the 1967 song written and composed by Isaac Hayes and David Porter.¬† I assume there will be a “Soul Man” or two out there today so I went a different direction.

My selection is “Drift Away”¬†written by Mentor R Williams.¬† Many covered this song but to me, Dobie’s version is the best.¬† I feel there could be doubles of this classic too but I am going forward anyways.¬† “Give me the beat boy and free my SOUL!!!!”
