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.
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" 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.
I was still in an 80's mood when I selected this Friday's song. It is "Everybody Wants to Rule the World" by Tears for Fears which was released in 1985.
Some 1980s memories influenced me this week. The Music of the Night from The Phantom of the Opera is this Friday's song. Hope you enjoy!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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."
This Friday's song Que Sera, Sera by Doris Day came up while we were playing videos for my mother-in-law Aida on Thanksgiving Day. Hope you enjoy!
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.
