Wow, where is this week escaping to?? And the month of April also?? Guess my brain is really getting bad. At least I've finally caught up on printing the correct year on stuff I write...lol

I'm about to head to bed because as most of you know, I'm on the wet coast, or I mean weSt coast and I post late at night so the Koffee Klatch is ready for everyone when you get up the next morning. I always have an easy listening radio station on when I go to bed. It's soothing to me. They're playing some nice music tonight that I really like.

Do you like music? What is your all-time favorite song? It can be from when you were a kid or more current..your choice. Mine is "I know I'll find you Somewhere" by the Moody Blues. Hubby and I had that played during our wedding ceremony. I married a 43 year old bachelor who wasn't sure he'd ever fine the 'right one' so that song was one he connected with. When we first started dating he introduced me to that song and it's been "Our Song" ever since.

Do you have a special song, one that's your favorite "just because" or a little ditty that you've liked since childhood?

The one song that I always liked is Cherish by The Association, came out in 63 64 time frame I think, I was in 7th grade I believe. Anyway I have the album " The association Greatest Hits, Cherish, Windy, Never My Love, Enter the young, No Fair ar all, Requiem for the Masses, are all fantastic songs on that album, but Cherish was the best! You should remember that song Chutzie smilewinkgrin

Like the Beatles, Lady Madonna, I always have music playing in my head:

Right now it's Halleluja written by Leonard Cohen. Many many artists have performed
this incredibly beautiful song. Jason Castro even did it well on Amercan Idol.

Attics of My Mind by the Grateful Dead is one for reflective times.
Sugar Magnolia is another good one by Jerry and the boys.

I like REM, Ten Thousand Maniacs, a little Kurt Cobain ..... so many. So very very
many.

All of Joni Mitchell's Blue album. Also her Green album. But I didn't like it when
she went on to Jazz.

Don't get me going on this topic... :- )

And what about Take A Giant Step by Taj Mahal ... (wink wink)

I like this line. (don't know who did it)
When I was stone blue
Rock 'n Roll sure got me through.

I love Barbra Streisand.....saw her on Ed Sullivan and have been a fan since.  2 years ago she came to Phoenix, my husband and kids treated me to the Concert, it was a dream come true, so wonderful I forgot the pain for 2 whole hours.  I love all types of music, my husband has a Blues/rock n' roll band, every gig they get better!
Have a wonderful low pain Thursday!

"Time in a Bottle" by Jim Croce.

"Cats in the cradle" by Harry Chapin.

I could go on and on with this particular subject.

Harry Chapin! Wow - thanks for pulling up a "cherished" memory (seriously).

I loved Harry Chapin. Saw him in concert a few times as I lived on Long Island at the time he was killed (I went into mourning!!). Harry Chapin, Carly Simon and Elton John got me through my earlier years of angst! LOL

I can't remember the song, but the last lines (one of Harry's) that stick with me are

"...it's got to be the goin', not the gettin' there, that's good."

And Carly had a son called Grown Up on one of her albums with the chorus

"...see I've just gotten older
I've just gotten taller
and the little ones they call me
a grown up."

Oh My Goodness! How in the world could I ever pick a favorite? HMMMMM>> The first songs that comes to mind are "Beyond the Sea" by the Late Great Bobby Darin or maybe "The Summerbreeze" by Old Blue Eyes or "Try a Little Tenderness" by Otis Redding or "Cresent City Moon" by Jumpin Johnny Sansone" (my little brother!) He won best song, best album, best singer, best accordian and best harmonica player awards from Offbeat Magazine's Best of the Best City of New Orleans the year it came out! It's OK to brag on your brother isn't it? Google him if you get a chance, he looks an awful lot like me only he's better looking of course! Back to the music, I listen to Blues all day every day at work on the internet w/ a tad of Rockabilly mixed in! When the boss takes that away, I'm out of there! There's nothing like a little Muddy Waters, Jimmy Reed or Carl Perkins to get you going in the morning! But I like every kind of music and try really hard to keep an open mind and listen to current stuff. I've even tried really hard to like rap but I just don't! I don't concider it music, it's more like some kind of urban yelled poety and a lot of the lyrics don't really follow my ideals either! So, I guess thats just me> OH yea, how could I forget Johnny Cash and Marvin Gay, Jim morrison and John Lennon??? Geeze Chutz, this is a rough one, I could just go on and on!! Thanks for giving us these pick-me-up's every day>>> You're an angel!!!!!

OMG, White Beard! You're making me want to dust off my turntable! Course it's stacked under the CD player and stuff and I haven't got time for the pain to mess with it! LOL

I do have some of Carly's stuff on CD's, but never got any of Harry's. 30,000 pounds of bananas! ROFL I can't believe you remembered that one! (It is a song by Harry, in case anyone was wondering!).

Pete's right though - to pick a favorite is impossible! We could just keep this thread going indefinitely as new favorite come to mind!

I absolutely LOVE music! I am mostly into the alternative music but lately my theme song has been by Bob Marley - Three Little Birds. I love Bob Marley and especially Tori Amos.

I remember Harry, Joni, Carole with great nostalgia but they were more my big sisters albums, I was more Neil Young, Bread, Split Enz (NZ alternate band) sort of gal. Loved "The damage done" haunting melody, Bread was my very young romantic stage and Split Enz my get out there and dance late teens stage. Ah Fond memories...

I'm not a Chapin afficionado, but those words sounds like something that woulda come from 'Taxi'.

Or another incredible from Chapin, Mr Tanner.

Actually, Chapin had about a 90% Incredible Rating.

Neil Young, (He lived near me and played in the Santa Cruz Mountains. I saw
him in concert but not at one of the quaint little bars he frequented with a coupla
dozen friends.

Carly Simon

John Lennon

MICK AND THE BOYS! (My son-in-law has gone to about thirty of his concerts.
When Mick does Sweet Virgina, he calls me. I can't really hear through the
roar of the crowd but it's loads of fun to hear a roaring crown on the phone at
1 am. When I first met my daughter's husband we discovered that our favorite
song was Sweet Virginia

Have you heard ... The Girl With Far Away Eyes ... UMMMMMM! Naughty naughty.
If anyone has ever heard it and likes it, I'll e-mail you a funny story about it. .

Zydeco -- all of it

Jim Morrison

STRANGE WORLD. Maybe my favorite at the moment.
(they are all my favorite at the moment)

Janice Joplin (If you're in the right mood)

I loved Fleetwood Mac ... but not now. l Don't know why

Jess Colin Young

Black Crows

Counting Crows! Mr. Jones is my very favorite.

Cheryl Crow

that's it.

btw PaLady is far above everyone in the number of posts. White Beard is way
up there. And I'm making a show.

It is funny how we "date" ourselves on this thread! smilewinkgrin I'm not sure who's older, but I think the crew of boomers is all pretty close in age! rolleyes

Pamela - is there some kind of contest regarding the number of posts? If so, I didn't know about it! But the mods have us all beat! yeah

I gotta go hunt up my Harry Chapin albums. It just might be Taxi, Tony. You know he would come and hang out in the lobby during intermission of his concerts. I got to talk with him because he was just leaning against a chair all alone. Cool guy!
