For Those Who Can't Be Here by Tom Walker

For Those Who Can’t Be Here — This Friday’s Song

Thought I would bookend the year with a recent performance by Tom Walker at Westminster Abbey of a new song titled "For Those Who Can't Be Here." For this performance, he was accompanied on the piano by the Duchess of Cambridge.

This Friday’s Song — The First Noel

From our family to yours, we wish you a very merry Christmas and a healthy and prosperous new year. In the midst of all the turmoil and angst so prevalent today, please take some time to remember why we celebrate the first Noel and, like Charles Dickens' Scrooge, let each of us always "keep Christmas well."

Days Like This by Van Morrison

Days Like This — This Friday’s Song

This Friday's song is Days Like This by Van Morrison. This was the title song of a 1995 album and it became the official anthem of the peace movement in Northern Ireland. I love the inherent optimism of the lyrics, the easy beat, and the sax riffs. Hope you enjoy Days Like This.
Frank Sinatra

It Was A Very Good Year — This Friday’s Song

This Friday's Song is "It Was A Very Good Year" by Frank Sinatra. This song has a nostalgic, yet melancholy feel. The singer is older, "in the autumn of the year", and thinks back on the romances that defined key stages of his life.
Billy Joel 1989

And So It Goes — This Friday’s Song

This Friday's song is And So It Goes by Billy Joel. The song was written in 1983, but not released until 1989 on the album Storm Front. I had been a Joel fan since he first broke out and this album was a personal favorite. I was traveling in Asia almost constantly at this point in my life for work and I spend a lot of long-haul flights listening to it.
