Looks like Ida will probably become a hurricane & stomp on us Sunday. We're expecting 10+ inches of rain & 100+ mph winds. So let's do this before it's too late ...

I'm not too much of an Elvis  fan, but this song always sounds like a hot southern summer night to me, and since it's a lovely night, we need some Black Velvet...



And since Mike threw Jimmy Buffett, my favorite song by him... One Particular Harbor



It contains a phrase in Tahitian,
   Ia ora te natura
   E mea arofa teie ao nei

The translation given is:

   "Nature lives (life to nature)
   Have pity for the Earth (Love the Earth)"

Somewhere in my past I read a prayer that said something like "Take care of the Earth and the Earth will take care of you." That's how my head sings the line in that song.
:D

Ida is creeping up on us now. Wham. The thrill is gone.

Two by Don McLean

Castles in The Air:
My all time favorite of his, a very permie song for some folks, it talks of getting out of the cities, to live in the country.
But how can words express the feel of sunlight in the morning
In the hills, away from city strife




American Pie:
And this one most people know, which leads to a story... In 1987 I was traveling in a VW bus, on the freeway, going through Lexington, Kentucky, on a lovely sunny day, I had my windows open. There was road construction, traffic was backed up for a mile or so, we were stuck. I flipped around on the radio, found a station, they started playing American Pie, I was singing with it, a guy in a convertible near me yelled "What station?" I said "Not sure, around 93?" He found it, cranked it, was singing too, and we started telling other cars what station, and they passed it on, and by the time the song ended, most of the traffic jam, on a lovely sunny day, was singing American Pie!! It was excellent!!

Today is Labor Day in the US, it's a lovely sunny day here, sing it with me, y'all! I bet you know it!!  :D

Going to the country. Works for me. Since it's the Labor Day holiday here's some old working songs, an even harder song about harder work, and a song about festive food sung by a young kid who worked hard & was successful as a result.

 







 
 
I don't like that guy. The tiny ad agrees with me.
