Starting off tonight with Don Henley’s “Dirty Laundry,” a perennial favorite:
That one’s been on my mind a lot lately. Loved it for many years though.
A song I can’t help but dig, M.I.A.’s “Paper Planes”:
An oddity I’ve enjoyed since the ’90s, Cake’s “Italian Leather Sofa”:
Another I love and have yet to tire of, “Too Much Time On My Hands” by Styx:
Too much truth in that song…
And that performance was broadcast in 1981…the year I was born. Life’s full of all sorts of goofy ironies if you take notice. lol
Another song I happen to have loved since forever, “Tom Sawyer” by Rush:
Which that video’s description box claims came out in 1981. The eeriness continues… ha!
Switching gears, “Paranoid Android” by Radiohead:
An amazing live performance, Portishead’s “Roads”:
Already posted that on here somewhere at least once before, but who cares? Beautiful, sorrowful song. Loved that tune since the ’90s.
Got a lot of changes on the horizon…been a long year, a long couple of years, a long many years. Time likes to tick by slowly in my world…
But perception is everything apparently. So I’ll deal with that going forward. Deeper personal thoughts can stay inside my head tonight.
Portishead’s “Glory Box”:
A song I’ve loved for several years, KT Tunstall’s “Other Side of the World”:
A rendition I’ve never heard before by Fiona Apple of the famous Beatles’ song “Across the Universe”:
Hmmm. Kept thinking throughout that if she was directly, personally, and physically impacted by that carnage I bet it’d change her world. Just the thought that happened across my mind by the 2:39 mark. And I don’t doubt that will come across to some as a cynical consideration. But welcome to reality. None of us are above it. Certainly helps what attitude you adopt within it while dealing with it. But still. Try to entirely not be impacted by life and see what kind of a life that renders to you. Just sayin’ is all.
A better Beatles’ song rendition, IMO, Johnny Cash singing “In My Life”:
