This Friday's song, City of New Orleans by Arlo Guthrie, was released in 1972. That was the year I graduated from St. John Prep in Danvers, MA and headed back to Long Island for college.
I recently finished Atomic Habits by James Clear. I am generally not a fan of "self-help" books, but I am trying to add more "what's everyone talking about" books to my reading mix, so I gave this one a deeper look.
Bit behind with sharing what we picked out of our music collection this week. This week's choice is actually a triple play by Jim Croce including Time in a Bottle, Operator, and I've Got a Name.
Finished Lost Light by Michael Connelly last week. It is the ninth book in the Harry Bosch series. I haven't read through a long series from front to back like this in awhile so it has been interesting.
I was ten years old when The House of the Rising Sun by Eric Burdon and the Animals were released. Even at that age, the song touched something in my soul.
Finished The Eye of the World by Robert Jordan recently. This is the first book in the Wheel of Time which will be coming to Amazon Prime later this year.
One of my first "I think really want to ask her out" songs was I Think We're Alone Now by Tommy James and the Shondells. Hope you enjoy.
This Friday's song picked from our music collection is "I'm Gonna Be Somebody" by Travis Tritt. He has a compelling, gutsey sound that draws you in.
British detective dramas seem to be our choice to escape all the angst and silliness that seems to dominate American television today. Our latest find is McDonald and Dodds on Britbox. It features an "odd couple" pairing as leads.
This Friday's song, Sultans of Swing by Dire Straits, was released in 1979. I owned a 1974 copper-orange Chevy Camaro and this was a favorite driving song.
Well, actually getting ready to watch Season 3 of Shakespeare & Hathaway: Private Investigators which is supposed to come to BritBox in early October.
This Friday's song, Tupelo Honey by Van Morrison, was released when I was senior in high school. Morrison had been a favorite artist for me since I first heard Brown Eyed Girl several years before.
