If I had a dollar for every post...
I'd have a hundred dollars.
Where have I been, you may be wondering. If you don't care and just want music, skip down to the bottom.
Here's the quick version: As I had mentioned, I had been sick. I landed in the hospital two weekends ago. Fast forward two + weeks, several days in the hospital, 4 catscans and one biopsy and I have been diagnosed with a weird rare "disease" wherein the thing that creates your immune system when you're a fetus is supposed to disapear by your teens but instead, well, mine grew. And now it's a tumor like mass in my chest. And it has to come out. Bummer. Please don't send me any freaky or weird or horror stories about such things. I can't take any more.
But I'm actually in good spirits because it could have been so freaking much worse, so let's all say a big halleluah and a few hossanas and move on. I'm back, for now. I will be out for a long time again, so if anyone wants to do guest posts (if anyone is still even checking in on this blog) then email me. I'd love to have some posts when I'm out of sorts.
So I'm gonna ease back in with just a couple of tunes. The first is an old NRBQ song that PBS Kids has set to their old promo from a few years ago. Originally, the promo was set to Des'ree's (whoa, that's a lot of apostrophe's) song "You Gotta Be." It's so interesting how a song can change the mood of the visuals so drastically. Anyway, the new version is played against NRBQ's tune "Only You."
Also included here is Michael Brook's "RockPaperScissors." It's a bit new age-y for my tastes and yet the chorus is sort of cool. Brook did the soundtrack to Al Gore's "Inconvenient Truth." And I think to the "Who Killed the Electric Car?" movie that I wanna see, too. This song sounds like a soundtrack to something. Anyway, that's Paul Buchanan on vocals.
Lastly, Phil over at A Family Runs Through It sent me a dance tune from Oh No! Oh My! that his kids like. I like it too.
NRBQ, "Only You"
Michael Brook, "Rockpaperscissors"
Oh No! Oh My!, "I Love You All The Time"

** PS - To all you wonderful bands and musicians who have sent me CDs recently, I will be covering those next week so a big ol' thank you, they've been enjoyed, and sorry for the delay.**
