Song of the Day 9/19/18 Arcade Fire “Normal Person”

Who’s feeling normal today?


Song of the Day 9/16/18 Billy Joel “Vienna “

Some songs can be indelibly linked to a specific moment . For me, Vienna goes back to a Sunday morning  when I was about 14. I was delivering news papers early on a mild fall Sunday morning and I could hear this song quietly coming from an open upstairs window as I dropped the newspaper on my neighbor’s front porch. Vienna will always be a Sunday morning song to me.

Song of the Day 9/15/18 Joan Jett and the Blackhearts “Fresh Start”

I heard this song yesterday and all of a sudden it was like I was back in 11th grade again (minus the bad haircut and acne), sitting at a stop light, bobbing my my head and playing air guitar in the front seat  while the kids in the minivan next to me looked at me like I was nuts. I’ve now listened to the song about 15 times in the last 24 hours.
