I’m going to go for something a little different today. One of the reasons I have stepped away from “history lessons” was the fact much of the history was depressing and that is not why I do what I do. I show up in an effort to make you smile! Today, there are 13 chances to do that and I hope at least one (hopefully more) gets the job done! 🙂
It’s a mix of songs ranging from 1958 (Jimmy Clanton) and running all the way up to 2020 (Jimmy Buffett), and there’s a particular reason for Jimmy’s song. More about that in a minute.
There are also songs from the 60s, 70s, 80s, and yep, even the 90s. Why, you ask? Well, maybe you didn’t ask but if you had, I would tell you the reason why. Songs from the 50s-70s are obviously “oldies” but some songs from the 80s are forty years old, and in my book, that qualifies them as legitimate classic songs. Even songs from the 90s are over twenty-five years old. Sorry, my friends, but the days of only music from the 50s and 60s counting as oldies are long gone and hard to find. Good music is good music. Embrace it all!
Okay, more about the Buffett song. The last four songs in today’s medley are being played because the performers have died in recent months: Sinead O’Connor, Robbie Robertson (guitarist and songwriter with The Band), Buffett, and Randy Meisner (bass guitarist and vocalist with The Eagles).
By the way, if you’re wondering why there is no talking between songs, it’s because I may be the “Pilot of The Airwaves” but for now I’m trying to focus on the music. My “babbling” will be here soon enough … just as soon as you start making requests! 🙂
