(97) Hello It’s Me Playlist Fav

Although somewhat distracting from the great lyrics of “Hello It’s Me”,  Todd Rundgren could most definitely adorn the stage with his costuming…Nice eyebrows Todd! A favorite song from the high school days that would always find me singing along with Todd when played on the local AM radio station (and it goes without saying I didn’t have near the listening audience he had). Hello, it’s me I’ve thought about us for a long, long time Maybe I think too much but something’s wrong There’s something here that doesn’t last too long Maybe I shouldn’t think of you as mine Seeing you, or seeing anything as … Continue reading (97) Hello It’s Me Playlist Fav

(90) Come To Me Playlist Fav

According to Goo Goo Dolls lead singer Johnny Rzeznik, this song is about a long-ago love, that was separated by time, and then it returns. I caught you burnin’ photographs Like that could save you from your past History is like gravity It holds you down away from me You and me, we’ve both got sins And I don’t care about where you’ve been Don’t be sad and don’t explain This is where we start again Start again Come to me my sweetest friend Can you feel my heart again I’ll take you back where you belong And this will … Continue reading (90) Come To Me Playlist Fav

(83) Demons Playlist Fav

One of those songs that might speak differently to each of us…. When the days are cold And the cards all fold And the saints we see Are all made of gold When your dreams all fail And the ones we hail Are the worst of all And the blood’s run stale I wanna hide the truth I wanna shelter you But with the beast inside There’s nowhere we can hide No matter what we breed We still are made of greed This is my kingdom come This is my kingdom come When you feel my heat Look into my … Continue reading (83) Demons Playlist Fav

(76) A Case of You Playlist Fav

A Joni Mitchell cover done well – I sing along with James (Wolpert), The Voice Season 5, in my car…a lot. Oh I am a lonely painter I live in a box of paints I’m frightened by the devil And I’m drawn to those ones that ain’t afraid I remember that time that you told me, you said “Love is touching souls” Surely you touched mine ’cause Part of you pours out of me In these lines from time to time Oh you are in my blood like holy wine You taste so bitter And so sweet oh I could … Continue reading (76) A Case of You Playlist Fav

(61) We All Need Saving Playlist Fav (9)

A great song to sing accappella or with headphones on…sometimes. I found myself singing it often times. You have got to move on This is not the you I know This isn’t real It’s just all you can feel And that’s the way that feelings go And whether or not it’s right or wrong You’ll do what you will do But when the cloud in the sky starts to pour in your life Its just a storm you’re braving Well don’t tell yourself You can’t lean on someone Cause we all need saving Sometimes   Continue reading (61) We All Need Saving Playlist Fav (9)

(53) HHS Classmates & When We Were Young Playlist Fav

After attending and enjoying my 40th high school reunion last fall, and seeing and renewing old friendships (picture below), this is a song that quickly hit a chord in the “Favs Playlist”…. Let me photograph you in this light In case it is the last time That we might be exactly like we were Before we realized We were sad of getting old It made us restless Oh, I’m so mad I’m getting old It makes me reckless It was just like a movie It was just like a song When we were young Continue reading (53) HHS Classmates & When We Were Young Playlist Fav

(46) Sounds of Silence Favs (7)

Know that not all these versions are in my favorites playlist (I did get a bit carried away this week) – wanna guess which one? And in the naked light I saw Ten thousand people, maybe more People talking without speaking People hearing without listening People writing songs that voices never share No one dare Disturb the sound of silence Disturbed and Myles Kennedy: yup! Nouela – a whole lot of tears from a whole lot of folks…good cover Passenger – a creative cover rendition from a guy with a creative voice Dance to the sounds of a haunting men’s … Continue reading (46) Sounds of Silence Favs (7)
