Aww…some Mondays

Monday’s Music Moves Me

I am having significant issues with trying to access Curious as a Cathy’s website. I keep getting a strange message that says a security risk is involved. I had to wait until others posted so I could get the theme for the day. Turns out that the theme is free choice week and Xmas Dolly is our conductor.

Today is also Flag day, which is probably the most overlooked and under celebrated patriotic holiday in the U. S. A. I do have a flag that will fly in front of our house today but I will resist the temptation to use this free choice post to conjure up additional patriotic songs. Instead, I will wonder into some of my favorite music. Recently I put a stereo system together in the home office. I bought a receiver at a local flea market, scored some great Bose 301 series V speakers from a local online garage sale, and added my own 5 disc CD changer. I think CD’s will follow a similar path as Vinyls. Why throw hundreds of perfectly good CD’s away just because I can bluetooth my music now? I still like the sound of my stereo that fills the room and I still like the music that I have owned over the past twenty years, so I am keeping my collection alive and well. Here are a few of my favorite artists in the collection.

First up is Eric Clapton. I have been a fan of Eric since his days with Cream. He has gone from iconic rock guitar/vocalist to iconic blues guitar/vocalist. His music is ageless. Enjoy.

Next up is a duet. Who would have thought that rocker Robert Plant and blue grass queen Alison Krauss would ever get together for an album of duets. The album is Raising Sand and the song I choose is “Gone, Gone, Gone”.

It seems that iconic artists like duet albums. One of Ray Charles last albums was Genius Loves Company. The album took some of Ray’s greatest hits from his country albums and added a new dimension with a guest vocalist. My choice is Ray and Diana Krall singing, “You Don’t Know Me”.

Well that’s what I’m listening to these days and I am enjoying the trip through my CD collection. Have a blessed week.
