So I wanted to start doing something different with my writing about music on the blog. You can look forward to Tuesdays Top Ten each week. That’s right. You will get to check out ten of the songs that I am listening to each Tuesday. I hope that you can sit back, check out these You Tube videos and enjoy some Tuesday tunes with me.
“Torn and Frayed” — The Rolling Stones
What can I say about this song. I LOVE it!! It is such a fun song, beautiful lyrics and something that just pulls at my soul as I listen.
“Yarmouth Road” Mike Gordon
Okay I will be honest about this one. It is more than just the song for me. Mike Gordon just so happens to be my biggest celebrity crush. So I just love watching him and I personally find this video to be delightful!
“Country Roads” John Denver
This song always reminds me of family. My grandpa lives on a farm in Southern MO and it reminds me of traveling back to spend time with him and all of the years I spent growing up in a small town.
I love this song. I find the lyrics to be beautifully written and hope to one day feel confident enough to sport a tattoo with the line “Steal away before the dawn and bring us back good news” on my side. Yes, this is the song that has inspired the next tattoo that I will get.
“Ribs and Whiskey” Widespread Panic
I will admit that I am only a small Panic fan but I can’t help but get up and dance with my kiddos when this one is on. So this morning we are dancing to some Panic.
“Highball with the Devil” Les Claypool
So I am going to check out Primus and the Chocolate Factory tonight. I thought that I would share one of my all time favorite songs of Mr Claypool’s. I have to admit that I am pretty excited and I have decided that I must just be a bass girl because I certainly can’t imagine seeing many bands live as much as I like to see Primus.
“Sultans of Swing” Dire Straits
Another oldie but goodie. This is one of those songs that just takes me to a special place every single time that I heard it. It makes me feel relaxed and helps when I am having a tough time. Today has not be tough by any means but it is still one of my favorite songs to chill out to.
“Forever Young” The Band (with Bob Dylan)
Who doesn’t love this song? It reminds me of everything that I want for our amazing children. I want them to have the innocence of being forever young. In a tough world out there it seems that kids are growing up just too fast and I don’t want that life for my beautiful little ones. On a side note, while thinking about my children and listening to this one this morning I was actually moved to tears.
“Anything Possible” Jaik Willis
This song is the perfect mantra for any of you who have ever wanted to do something greater with your life. I like to play this one for my kids to remind them that they can do anything and be anything that they want in life.
“Nashville Cats” Del McCoury Band
This is one band that I feel like everyone should love!! I have seen them twice recently and had such an amazing time at the show that I really could not ask for more out of them!!
