Peter McCann - “Do You Wanna Make Love?” (1977)

BAD MUSIC INSOMNIA:  Why is this God-awful song on repeat in my head?!?

Do you wanna make love
Or do you just wanna fool around?

The Milk Carton Kids - “Heaven” - Munich 9-12-13

Please watch Grammy-nominated musical friends The Milk Carton Kids on Austin City Limits this weekend on PBS.  Congratulations, Joey Ryan and Kenneth Pattengale!

"They promised me heaven.  I was hoping for so much more."

2014, I swear, this year is going to be different.

"New Year’s Eve and it’s hard to believe
Another Zodiac’s gone around.
While you drank yourself high on hoping
And watched the ceiling spin from the ground.

Counting down from ten it’s time
To make your annual prayer.
Secret Santa in the sky,
When will I get my share?

Then you tell yourself
What you want to hear,
'Cause you have to believe,
This will be my year.”

- “This Will Be My Year” by Semisonic.

There will always be those whose insecurities make being right/liked/heard more important than respecting/appreciating differences.  Those live a very small, contained life.  Don’t be one of those.

I would not have known this was Billie Joe Armstrong with Norah Jones on their take of The Everly Brothers’ Songs Our Daddy Taught Us.

Here’s my favorite, “Long Time Gone,” off their new album, Foreverly.

I know what I’ll be listening to on these cold, lonely, winter nights.

Today marks the 25th anniversary of R.E.M.’s Green.  My favorite song from the album is “You Are The Everything.”  What’s yours?

As a girl, my family would drive all night to spend Thanksgiving and Christmas with relatives in Houston.  This song perfectly captures lying in the backseat, looking at the stars and watching the streetlights pass by, while listening to classic country and oldies on the radio.

Here’s the scene
You’re in the backseat laying down
The windows wrap around
To the sound of the travel and the engine

All you hear is time stand still in travel
You feel such peace and absolute
The stillness still that doesn’t end
But slowly drifts into sleep

The stars are the greatest thing you’ve ever seen
And they’re there for you
For you, alone, you are the everything
