Here Comes the Sun — This Friday’s Song

This Friday's song is "Here Comes the Sun" by the Beatles. This song has always been about "beginnings" for me. I am starting a new gig next week and thought it would be a good choice. I picked the 2019 video mix which is pretty true to the original recording. Hope you enjoy!
If I Were Your LOver by Kip Moore

If I Were Your Lover — This Friday’s Song

This Friday's song is "If I Were Your Lover" by Kip Moore. This new song has a solid, uptempo beat that is classic Kip Moore. The video features Morgan Wade. It is pretty "steamy" and a bit dark for a Moore video.

More Than a Feeling by Boston

More Than A Feeling — This Friday’s Song

This Friday's song is "More Than A Feeling" by Boston. This song was released in 1976 as the lead single on the band's debut album. I have lots of good memories from that time. I had taken a break from college and moved back to the North Shore of Boston the year before.
Wild Palomino by the Zac Brown Band

Wild Palomino — This Friday’s Song

This Friday's song is "Wild Palomino" by the Zac Brown Band. This version features Cody Johnson. He seemed to have lost his way personally and professionally over the past few years and it showed in his music. This song is the type of very personal, classic country ballad that made us fans. We hope is is the first of many more.

Tim McGraw

Live Like You Were Dying — This Friday’s Song

This Friday's song is "Live Like You Were Dying" by Tim McGraw. I had three things happen in the last 48 hours that made me stop and think about life and priorities. This personal favorite of mine says it better than I ever could.

The Power of Love — This Friday’s Song

This Friday's song is "The Power of Love" by Huey Lewis and the News. This 1985 hit was featured on the soundtrack of one of my favorite movies, Back To The Future. I thought it would be a fun tune to kick back and enjoy as we enter the heart of the summer.
