In anticipation of the March 1 release of a new retrospective The Best of Everything, a new previously unreleased and un-bootlegged song by Tom Petty & and the Heartbreakers was released this week called For Real. From listening to the lyrics, it sort of sounds like a manifesto on why musicians do what they do.
Can’t wait for the new retrospective. I still can’t believe he is gone.
Just coming in under the wire for today. I’ve always loved this Steve Earle song. Protagonist of song is a total screw up who always forgets to do the stuff you’re supposed to do on Valentine’s Day – no flowers, no candy, no card.
” I know that I swore that I wouldn’t forget… I wrote it all down… I lost it I guess…”
But he just lays it all out there for his love about how he feels. Very touching and gets at the real meaning of the day.
“The way you love me everyday… is Valentine’s Day”
Some piano music for this Sunday morning from German pianist and composer Hauschka (Volker Bertelmann). From his just released album A Different Forest.
A little reggae flavor on this Thursday. From the classic 1972 soundtrack to the film by the same title.
Finally warming up (relatively speaking) from the deep freeze of the past week – here’s a piece that captures the feeling of the sun out and the temperature rising – time to be getting up and doing stuff.
Something whimsical on this Sunday.
The full song title is hope is a dangerous thing for a woman like me to have – but I have it.
Can’t say I know much of Lana Del Ray music but heard her new single and that I was a amazing performance – not vocal wise but just the lyrics and the way she delivers them.
