No commute means no last two songs on the radio. It also means no parking in what might be a rat infested garage because the car indicators are lighting up like a Christmas tree again. Ugh. Using vacay to diagnose my car wasn’t in the plan :(. I may or may not be back on New Years Eve. I will be back at work but staying home unless it’s too crowded here. If I commute, there’ll be tunes.
Merry X-mas Eve folks. Wishing you the best ❤
Jack has a sense of humor I’m convinced. The last two songs were “Welcome to the Jungle” and “Get Ready For This”. Last two songs before entering work where my mood is one of Rocky trying to knockout work so next week my vacation will be truly restful. Without further ado:
Yeah baby said in my best Austin Powers voice over voice. Jack is knocking it outta the park. First up Dire Straights … look at them yo-yo’s that’s the way you do it
Followed by Modern English hence the yeah baby 😉
Hope you enjoy.
As always, more to come.
Here we go, here we go again … I think this one may have come up before – or maybe it was a different Romantics Song. I have been waiting for Jack to repeat. Has to happen one of these days.
And here is # 2
All The Small Things by Blink 182
Songs go in a perpetual loop in my brain. And weird things spark different tunes. I just finished reading Dangerous When Wet: A Memoir of Booze, Sex, and My Mother by Jaime Brickhouse. I wrote a little review on Goodreads. Very short and sweet:
Unconditional love of a mother for her child. We should all be so lucky to have a “Mama Jean” in our lives.
Though in hindsight, maybe not. The expectations of perfection may have driven him to drink but those same expectations may have also saved him. If I have learned anything in my short life, one cannot save someone who does not want help. Recovery is a tough nut to crack.
When is the shade coming up Jilly?
Well, as I read this memoir I thought of the fictional Less Than Zero by Bret Ellis Easton. Debauchery. Not saying Jamie (IRL) is Julian (fictional) though there could be some similarities. What got me to shade was the soundtrack for the movie based on the book. Bangles covered the song “Hazy Shade of Winter” most excellently. Haunting and fitting for the theme. The original was a Simon and Garfunkel gem. I now share both, beginning with the homage. Hope you enjoy!
rules and ping back
Jack does it again. The second to last song goes out to the memory of my brother Jimbo Pete. “Leftoverture” was the album by Kansas that he gave me for my 8th grade graduation. The final song before I parked and entered the building was an INXS classic.
Jack has a sense of humor. Last two songs were “Don’t Do Me Like That” then “Faithfully”
Well today I heard two good ones back to back. Thank you Jack!
