Beautiful, young people in tropical, pristine locations with melodic, laid-back music. I felt a deep, rooted vibe from this video. The slow moving images triggered strong feelings of nostalgia for the carefree days in my 20’s. Oh, to be back to those days again. It almost hurts to think about…A knot settles in my throat.

I found a lot to love about this Pentatonix cover of John Lennon’s Imagine. Continue reading ““Imagine” cover by Pentatonix”
Totally Boss response to fans’ request to play a song Bruce and the band had not played in a long while. I loved every second of how they worked that out…on stage…in front of the audience. Fantastic! Continue reading “Bruce Springsteen – You Never Can Tell…what’s gonna happen”
Like so many others, once I heard Barenaked Ladies One Week, I couldn’t get it out of my head. Then it was played again and again and again….

Yet again, my music taste is expanded by music used in a commercial. As Apple did for Feist’s “1,2,3,4”, Jeep does for the X Ambassadors’ “Renegades.” I simply can’t get the melody out of my head, nor the message out of my soul.
We all need to be Renegades at some point in our lives. It’s never too late, and the rewards are adventure, conflict, growth, and change—to name just a few. Continue reading “Renegades ~ by X Ambassadors ~ Jeep Commercial”
I gotta a feeling….this is even better than the original 🙂

Totally fun rhythm to Say Hey (I love you) by Michael Franti & Spearhead. I found it on Pandora and have been playing it non-stop for a couple days. Makes me laugh, smile, and dance.
