Welcome, good poets, to the serene sounds of serenity, comin' atchya today from the steam of a N'Awlins afternoon. We've got some cool jazz, r&b, classics and classics-to-be for your listening pleasure today--but first? I've got a few very special requests for dedications...give it your ear, I know you'll be pleased.
From Serenity to Janet Marie? "Ball and Chain"...um, the Janis Joplin version please--BECAUSE SHE KNOWS
then one for Sharon-- "Someone to Watch Over Me"..wicked me...
bsquirrel and his girl, Lori? "Nothing Else Matters"--Metallica
for the man behind the scenes, our own Ron Carnell? "Skating Away (on the thin ice of a new day)" by Jethro Tull--
particularly THIS part:
"So as you push off from the shore, won't you turn your head once more -
And make your peace with everyone?
For those who choose to stay, will live just one more day -
To do the things they should have done.
And as you cross the wilderness, spinning in your emptiness:
You feel you have to pray.
Looking for a sign that the Universal Mind
Has written you into the Passion Play."
and our irrepressible doreen? To her I send--
"Golden Slumbers" by John Lennon.
Christopher? did not forget you...but I thought I'd remember YOU and Peggy Lee at the same time, and send out "Fever" to you...ooooh...
Karilea, you get "Amorena" by Elton John...because it WOULD have been "Karilea" had Bernie Taupin been aware of you.
Professor Gloom...grin..easy "Talkin' Old Soldiers" again by Sir Elton.
Nan? "At Last"--the divine Etta James version, of course.
My beloved bro, the Alicat? grin...has to be "Stray Cat Strut" by The Stray Cats!!!
Michael Mack? There was no other choice in my mind--"Piano Man" by Billy Joel.
Marge Tindall..."Strawberry Fields Forever"
by the Beatles
Masked Intruder..."You Can Leave Your Hat On"
and hey...wink, ANY version will do!
and wow...look at the time! I'll be back with more, but first I have to let you hear this short message from one of our sponsors...sigh..Okay..I'll be back after FIFTY short messages..but we gotta pay the bills!
and as they say here in N'Awlins?
"Laissez Les Bon Temps Rouler!"
