Listening

Sharing a new song we discovered or a favorite from our music collection every Friday.

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.
The Painter by Cody Johnson

The Painter — This Friday’s Song

This Friday's song is "The Painter" by Cody Johnson. Besides being easy to listen to, this song expresses how I feel about my wife Teresa, and how beautiful life has been since she came into mine.
Don't Blink by Kenny Chesney

Don’t Blink — This Friday’s Song

This Friday's song is "Don't Blink" by Kenny Chesney. I picked this song because today is my son Ryan's twenty-fifth birthday. It almost seems like yesterday that I held him for the first time. This has always been one of my favorite Chesney tunes. I hope you enjoy "Don't Blink" by Kenny Chesney.
Touch of Grey by the Grateful Dead

Touch of Grey — This Friday’s Song

This Friday's song is "Touch of Grey" by the Grateful Dead. Not sure if it was feeling more than just a little bit "grey" trying to do yard work in the heat this week or something else that brought this song to mind.
Randy Meisner of the Eagles

Take It to the Limit — This Friday’s Song

This Friday's song is "Take It to the Limit" by the Eagles. I picked it because this is the only single by the Eagles where Randy Meisner, who passed away last week, sang the lead.
Sittin' In by Loggins and Messina

Danny’s Song — This Friday’s Song

This Friday's song is "Danny's Song" by Kenny Loggins and Jim Messina. This 1971 song was always one of my favorites from this iconic duo. Hope you enjoy!
Happy Together at Savour Tallahassee

Happy Together — This Friday’s Song

The inspiration for this Friday's song, "Happy Together" by the Turtles, was our monthly date night last Saturday. We went to Savour, one of our favorites in Tallahassee. I had noted it was a "date night" when I made the reservation. When they sat us at our table, they had a little note that said "Happy when we're Together. "
When I Call Your Name by Vince Gill

When I Call Your Name — This Friday’s Song

I was in the mood for some classic country this week. "When I Call Your Name" by Vince Gill fits the bill perfectly for this Friday's song. Gill's voice is pitch-perfect and complimented by Patty Loveless doing backing vocals. Hope you enjoy!
Mountain Music by Alabama

Mountain Music — This Friday’s Song

This Friday's song is Mountain Music by Alabama. We have had a couple of weeks of sustained hot weather here in Tallahassee. Teresa and I have been thinking about planning a trip to the mountains in north Georgia since they are only about a six-hour drive away. That conversation brought this song to mind.
Creedence Clearwater Revival

Who’ll Stop the Rain — This Friday Song

It has been raining almost every day for the past week in Tallahassee, so "Who'll Stop the Rain" by Credence Clearwater Revival seemed like an excellent choice for this Friday's song. It was a choice between this and another CCR standard "Fortunate Son" which has come to mind for some reason quite a bit this past week as well.
Summer Breeze by Seals and Crofts

Summer Breeze — This Friday’s Song

This Friday's song is "Summer Breeze" by Seals and Crofts. This is one of my favorites, but I am not really sure why I picked this particular song this week. It may be because it's the middle of June and a warm summer breeze is blowing across our back porch. Perhaps, the breeze is just making me feel nostalgic.
