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

Cover of Piano Man by Billy Joel

Piano Man — This Friday’s Song

This Friday's song is "Piano Man" by Billy Joel. When the song was released in 1973, I was a sophomore in college at CW Post on Long Island. "Piano Man" hit the airwaves in NY pretty big and it made me a Billy Joe fan.
Sing Me Back Home by Don Williams

Sing Me Back Home — This Friday’s Song

This Friday's song is Sing Me Back Home, a cover of the 1967 Merle Haggard hit performed by Don Williams. Williams has been favorite of mine since I lived in Texas 'back in my younger days.' Hope you enjoy!

Waiting for a Girl Like You — This Friday’s Song

Waiting for a Girl Like You" by Foreigner is this Friday's song. Teresa and I are celebrating our eleventh wedding anniversary tomorrow. This 1981 power ballad expresses how I felt when I first met her in 2008 and every day since then much better than I ever could. My darling, I thank God every day for helping me find you and thank you for saying yes.

Growing Old With You — This Friday’s Song

This Friday's song is "Growing Old With You" by Restless Road. This new song just hit the streaming services and YouTube today. Teresa and I really enjoyed this sweet love song when we found it today.
Sting from Fields of Gold Video

Fields of Gold — This Friday’s Song

This Friday's song is "Fields of Gold" by Sting. This classic ballad was released in June 1993. I was living in Dallas and helping launch MetaSolv when this hit the airwaves.

Buy Dirt — This Friday’s Song

This Friday's song is "Buy Dirt" performed by Jordon Davis and Luke Bryan. This 2021 release is a reminder that life is short and our focus should always be on the simple things that make life worth living.
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."
I'll Never Find Another You by the Seekers

I’ll Never Find Another You – This Friday’s Song

This Friday's song is I'll Never Find Another You by The Seekers. I chose this song because it brings back some great memories and to tell my wife Teresa how grateful and humbled I am that she chose to share her life with me.
