Africa by Toto

Africa — This Friday’s Song

This Friday's song is "Africa" by Toto. This song was released in October 1982. The song's "storyline" is kind of a mishmash, but it has culturally endured. I was living in Houston when this was released. The month this song was released Epcot opened at Disney, Sony shipped the first commercial CD player, and the musical Cats opened on Broadway.

Everything’s Gonna Be Alright

This Friday's song is "Everything's Gonna Be Alright" by David Lee Murphy. It has been a couple of pretty tough months for our family. We did get to bring my mother-in-law Aida home from her second hospitalization in two months this past Sunday, so maybe "everything's gonna be alright."
The Road You Leave Behind by David Lee Murphy

The Road You Leave Behind — This Friday’s Song

This Friday's song is "The Road You Leave Behind" by David Lee Murphy. This song was released in July 1996. It seemed a good reminder this first week of a new year to pay it forward and help out your fellow man because that act of goodwill might just come back around.
Auld Lang Syne by Rod Stewart

Auld Lang Syne — This Friday Song

This Friday's song is "Auld Lang Syne" performed by Rod Stewart. This was filmed at Stirling Castle in 2012. Twenty Twenty Three has been a very difficult year for our family and for many others we know. Hopefully 2024 will bring better.
Tenebrae Choir

In the Bleak Midwinter

This Friday's song is "In the Bleak Midwinter" performed by the Tenebrae Choir. This has become one of my favorite Christmas hymns. From our family to yours, we wish you a blessed and happy Christmas.
When Did I Get Old by Derek Dove and the Peacemakers

When Did I Get Old — This Friday’s Song

This Friday's song is "When Did I Get Old" by Derek Dove and the Peacemakers. It has been a tough couple of weeks with my mother-in-law breaking her hip and me having another bout of Covid after spending a week at the hospital with here. Not sure how this came across the stream this week, but it seemed apropos.
God Gave Me You by Dave Barnes

God Gave Me You – This Friday’s Song

This Friday's song is "God Gave Me You" by Dave Barnes. I chose to share this song this week for a very special reason. Fifteen years ago this week, I drove up to Kendall from the Keys to meet my wife Teresa for the very first time. Teresa, darling, I don't think I can ever say it better than this.
I'll Take a Glass by Finbar Furey

I’ll Take a Glass —This Friday’s song.

This Friday's song is "I'll Take a Glass", another song by Irish singer-songwriter Finbar Furey. The song is a beautiful and moving tribute to the power of love and memory. It is a reminder that even in the darkest of times, there is always hope. Not sure if it's my Irish roots or the stage I have reached in life, but his music is really striking a chord with me.
