Awe…some Monday’s Music Moves Me

As you can see, Lucy is not exactly a “Morning Pup”. She sleeps in her kennel at night and gets up with me around 6:30 a.m. I go to the kitchen to fix breakfast and make my first cup of coffee while Lucy relocates to the den and her bed for the first nap of the day. Once I finish breakfast and pour my coffee, I will go to the den, turn on the morning news and sit in the recliner for a while. At that point Lucy leaves this bed and repositions herself in my lap and resumes her nap. Such is a dog’s life.

Monday’s Music Moves Me

It’s another freedom of choice week, so I am going to feature some artists that may have slipped though the cracks of our memory. As a child of the sixties I was fortunate to be exposed to a lot of great music. Each generation has it’s superstars as well as those who seemed to come and go, then are only remembered when their music qualifies to be played on the “Oldies” radio stations. I think one such group was “The Band”. My favorite song from this group was “The Weight”.

Another group that got my attention was Deep Purple and the song, “Smoke on the Water”.

I was fascinated by Emerson, Lake & Palmer. Their musicianship was unsurpassed but much of their music never reached the radio play lists because the songs were just too long for air play. For most, their music was hard to define. It was a combination of rock, blues & jazz. The title cut from the Tarkus album is a prime example of their style. Have a blessed week.

  1. Lucy is so cute. I love how they can sleep all night and then take a nap a few minutes after getting up. She’s a keeper.

    Love the music.

    ELP was great music to listen to, back in the day when people listened to the music with friends instead of each doing their own thing. Deep Purple was my guilty pleasure.

    1. I guess I would have to classify ELP as my guilty pleasure. And yes, a group of my friends used to host a party each month and feature a musical group. We would all bring an album by that group and listen to the music all afternoon.

  3. Your puppy sounds like he could be your shadow just like my Charlie. I love pups… they truly are man’s best friend. Love your first tune. Hubby Dave use to sing/play that tune when he was in his band. He’s taking break right now. He’s been ill. Anyway, love that tune and your second tune as well. When Smoke on the Water was playing I surely got up to dance (well, before my back operation. I haven’t danced since). Now the Tarkus Album I’m totally in the dark, but their music is something to reckon with I’m sure. Awesome… although it sounds like something you would hear on the a Frank Zappa tune in the background. Have a great day my new friend you do make for an awesome conductor… thank you! Have a great day!

  4. John,

    Lucy’s life sounds pAwesome! Who wouldn’t like to get a good night’s sleep to wake up to only take a nap? lol I think it was Patrick who shared another song by Emerson, Lake, & Palmer. I couldn’t figure out why this group didn’t ring a bell but purrhaps it’s because of what you said their mewsic didn’t get much play time because of their length. Deep Purple ‘Smoky on the Water’ is one of my all-time favorites. It’s interesting from the 1938 song list I used to build my daddy’s bday tribute, that’s the name of one Tommy Dorcy’s songs and Tom mentioned this morning that it was this song the band took its name. Isn’t interesting how many of us entwine our posts/comments with one another? Thanks for sharing the 4M dance floor with us. You’re a fabulous guest co-host this month. Have a boogietastic week, my friend!

    What a life Lucy! You are a lucky and loved pup. ‘Smoke on Water’ is the only song I can play on a guitar, and then only the first bar or so – I love that song, and the others are awesome as well.
