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

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.

Only the Good Die Young — This Friday’s Song

Heading into summer, I was in the mood for something really upbeat. "Only the Good Die Young" by Billy Joel fits the bill, so it is this Friday's song. If you follow me, you know that I have been a Billy Joel fan since The Piano Man was released in 1972. I have shared several of his songs before. Hope you enjoy!

Two of My Tina Turner Favorites

This Friday's song is actually two songs by the amazing Tina Turner. I picked "What's Love Got to Do with It" and "Proud Mary". The world is much richer for the gifts this strong and amazing woman gave to all of us.

Born to be Wild — This Friday’s Song

This Friday's song is "Born to Be Wild" by Steppenwolf. There was a cover of this song at the end of the latest Brokenwood Mysteries episode that brought back a lot of memories.
Sometimes She Stays Kip Moore

Sometimes She Stays — This Friday’s Song

This Friday's song is "Sometimes She Stays" by Kip Moore. This really spoke to me when I heard it. Since Mother's Day will be this weekend, I would like to dedicate this to my wife Teresa. I probably would retitle it "Thank God She Stays".
