Turn My Sorrow Into Treasured Gold

I hate to sound like a guitar nerd but that tone gets me right in the good groovy spot. Makes me wanna dance on a sunny Friday afternoon!

Pulling The Puzzles Apart

Fridays are still considered party time around here but the biggest part of the party wears a Rapunzel princess nightgown and her drink of choice is 1/2 filtered water, 1/2 black cherry juice in a Dora sippy cup.

Snuggle up wth a sugar cookie and keep warm this weekend! If your lucky, maybe you'll get some sprinkles.

FYI: This album has a duet with Willie & Snoop...that is worth a listen people!

Success Has Been So Easy For You

Beautiful sunshine, so nice to see you! It was warm enough yesterday to play outside! It almost feels like the Bahamas (not really, I just thought I would make a stupid pun on my blog)...

But I really do love this song! And Sunshine! And exclamation points!

That's Nice For You

Oh golly, if this song doesn't make you deep sigh on a Monday morning, you have a hard, hard heart. And if you haven't heard Kate McGarrigle sing this song, you gotta find it and read the story behind the song. That will get a deep sigh for sure. And if THAT story isn't sad enough and you have never read anything about Allison Moorer and Shelby Lynne's family would be hard to imagine anything more tragic...

In My Head I Paint a Picture

I listened to hours of depressing rainy day music all week long. I had a couple of really great covers picked out for today but I needed to find a toe tapper...I can't drag into the weekend. So hope this gets your toes a'tappin friends...look, what the heck is that bright ball of fire in the sky?

Here is a cover of a cover of an original you probably never heard!

It Makes Me Mellow Down To My Soul

I am constantly surprised by how many of my favorite love songs seems to be about my kiddo now that I'm a mommy. It is one life change I didn't expect, all these things that once seemed romantic would now just be about unadulterated love.

This is one of those songs. Enjoy the rainy Monday music my people!

But Clouds Got in My Way

So today's cover is a pretty funny is Joni covering Joni. The album Both Sides Now is seriously one of my favorites. Amazing. But I love comparing 2000 Joni to 1969 Joni, sunshine/light to clouds/dark, her self portraits match her voice perfectly.

Because I love both versions of this song, here is the "Cover" and the "Original"

The City's Heart Begins To Beat

A friend had a Michael Jackson listening party a few nights ago and danced until dawn. I made a joke that you can tell a woman's age by her album preference, "Thriller" versus "Off the Wall"...not too ashamed to say I'm an "Off the Wall" girl.

But when you hear this cover, it is hard to remember this is a dang Michael Jackson song!!!

Send Me Photographs and Souvenirs

This song makes me think of my baby and the fact she's growing up and will one day be GROWN up. Whatever, it makes me almost cry thinking of the day when I wait on Sophie's phone calls...

There's Nothing I Can Do About It

January is here and I still want to stay under the covers. Since this is my blog, I think I will! Interesting fact, when I met my husband (1991), he looked like Eddie Vedder. They both look a little different now but my husband is still a sweet potato so I got that going for me!
