The Grammy Museum

One of the benefits of living in a big city is the entertainment possibilities.  Yesterday was one of those days, when despite the traffic, I joined some friends in downtown Los Angeles, known by some as DTLA. Not WeHo, West Hollywood, or SoHo, in New York or You Ho, oh never mind. This day was…

Nina Simone…Feeling Good

Do you remember the movie from 1993, “Point of No Return” staring Bridget Fonda? It was thriller about a young violent, unstable drug addict found guilty of murdering a police officer and sentenced to death by lethal injection. Instead, her death is faked and an elaborate plan hatches when a secret government agent informs her…

What A Day For A Daydream…

Custom made for a day dreamin’ boy… And you can be sure, that if you’re feelin’ right A daydream will last along into the night. Make your own kind of music.  Sing your own special song. Counting flowers on the wall, That don’t bother me at all. Ooohh how I love the rainy days And…

I’ve Got The Music in Me

Do you sing with the radio? How about the music played in stores?  I know there is a reason for the popularity of Karaoke; I’m not talking about that performing style of singing; rather just singing for the joy of being “Happy”. Look what Happiness has been generated because of Pharrell Williams’ Happy song. It’s…

At The Car Wash

I enjoy music. Frequently the turntable is spinning tunes in my head.  What just cracks me up is the ability to recall lyrics from songs that are over 50 years old.  I’m not just “stuck in the middle with you” but I think I could just keep telling a story and filling it with more…

A Dog and His Man

I hear music in my head, do you? The song that comes to mind was from Jackie DeShannon… 1969… Think of your fellow man; lend him a helping hand, put a little love in your heart. It was just another ordinary day; make a list, run some errands, figure out what needs to be accomplished….
