Rosanna by Toto

Rosanna — This Friday’s Song

This Friday's song is "Rosanna" by Toto. This song came up when I was researching another post. A lot was happening in the world when this was released in 1982. AT&T was ordered to breakup, Letterman premiered, and Israel returned the Sinai to Egypt.
Finbar Furey performing The Last Great Love Song

The Last Great Love Song

Finbar Furey's "The Last Great Love Song" came across my stream last week. It is a heartfelt ballad that delves into the enduring power of love and its ability to withstand the trials of time.
Robert Goulet in Camelot

If Ever I Would Leave You

This Friday's song is "If Ever I Would Leave You" sung by Robert Goulet. I took my wife out for our monthly "date night" earlier this week. We had a great meal and some deep conversations. As we talked and I looked into her eyes, I could almost hear this song playing in the background. My darling Teresa, this says it better than I ever could.
Drink in My Hand by Eric Church

Drink in My Hand — This Friday’s Song

It was a long, difficult week. "Drink in My Hand" by Eric Church seemed a good choice for this Friday's song. It was a good reminder to put all the "c..." from the past week in a box, relax, and enjoy a beautiful fall weekend with my family. There will be time on Monday to take things back on.

This Friday's song is "Standing Room Only" by Tim McGraw. This is the title track and first single from his sixteenth solo studio album. This song is a classic McGraw ballad that harkens back to "Live Like You Were Dying."
Bubbles Up by Jimmy Buffett

Bubbles Up — This Friday’s Song

This Friday's song is "Bubbles Up", another tune from Jimmy Buffett. It takes its name from a phase that is used to train divers to follow the bubbles to the surface. The song is especially poignant given Buffet's recent passing.
Come Monday by Jimmy Buffett

Come Monday — This Friday’s Song

This Friday's song is "Come Monday" by Jimmy Buffett who passed away last week. This song is much more reflective than many of his other songs. I always thought it revealed a lot about him as a person.
Jimmy Buffett

Cheeseburger in Paradise

Jimmy Buffet's music has had a preferred spot on my playlists for most of my adult life. Just yesterday, "This Friday's Song" was "Changes in Latitudes, Changes in Attitudes" to accompany our Labor Day weekend trip to Amelia Island. It was so sad to see the news this morning that this unique artist and remarkable man passed away last night.
Changes In Latitudes Changes In Attitudes

Changes In Latitudes, Changes In Attitudes

This Friday's song is "Changes In Latitudes, Changes In Attitudes" by Jimmy Buffett. I picked this song because it is one of my favorite songs and because Teresa and I are on "island time" this weekend on a long overdue vacation on Amelia Island. I am sure we will be playing it more than once.
