Song for the Weekend (10/03/2019)

Gucci bags, stacks on stacks, diamonds spillin’ out the champagne glass…

I was surprised to see so many negative comments in the comments on this YouTube video of what I think is one hell of a fun song. If you have ever seen Zac Brown Band in concert you would know that these guys can rock out.

Song for the Weekend (9/26/2019)

Tune set to an Irish ditty:

“..the way that she’s drinkin’, she must be Norwegian!…”

So f-ing funny.

Ok, this isn’t exactly a song that you’ll be blasting in your car on the way home, but I couldn’t resist sharing this. My wife took up curling after the last Winter Olympics. It’s a low key and very fun sport.

This video made us laugh so hard.

Song for the Weekend ((9/05/2019)

Imagine Dragons need no introduction. However, if you ever wondered how they got their name:

The moniker “Imagine Dragons‘ is actually an anagram made from the letters of different words. The band have made it a point of keeping the original words secret. “We just thought it would be cool to keep something to ourselves, because you’re always exposing yourself as an artist.”

As of this post…this video has 1.2 billion views…holy $#&%!

Thunder

Just a young gun with a quick fuse
I was uptight, wanna let loose
I was dreaming of bigger things
And wanna leave my old life behind
Not a yes-sir, not a follower
Fit the box, fit the mold
Have a seat in the foyer, take a number
I was lightning before the thunder

Thunder, thunder
Thunder, thun-, thunder
Thun-thun-thunder, thunder, thunder
Thunder, thun-, thunder
Thun-thun-thunder, thunder

Thunder, feel the thunder
Lightning then the thunder
Thunder, feel the thunder
Lightning then the thunder
Thunder, thunder
Thunder

Kids were laughing in my classes
While I was scheming for the masses
Who do you think you are?
Dreaming ’bout being a big star
They say you’re basic, they say you’re easy
You’re always riding in the back seat
Now I’m smiling from the stage while
You were clapping in the nosebleeds

Thunder
Thunder, thun-, thunder
Thun-thun-thunder, thunder, thunder
Thunder, thun-, thunder
Thun-thun-thunder, thunder

Thunder, feel the thunder
Lightning then the thunder
Thunder, feel the thunder
Lightning then the thunder
Thunder

Thunder, feel the thunder
Lightning then the thunder, thunder

Thunder, feel the thunder
Lightning then the thunder, thunder
Thunder, feel the thunder
Lightning then the thunder, thunder
Thunder, feel the thunder
(Never give up, never give up)
Lightning then the thunder, thunder
(Never give up on your dreams)
Thunder, feel the thunder
(Never give up, never give up)
Lightning then the thunder, thunder
(Never give up on your dreams)

Thunder, thunder, thun-, thunder
Thun-thun-thunder, thunder
Thunder, thunder, thun-, thunder
Thun-thun-thunder, thunder
Thunder, thunder, thun-, thunder
Thun-thun-thunder, thunder
Thunder, thunder, thun-, thunder
Thun-thun-thunder, thunder

Song for the Weekend (8/29/2019)

Even though this song is relatively old (has is really been 10 years?) it gets me revved up every time. Plus, how can a kid from Cali not love this?

Silvertide

California Rain

The nights are long
And the days roll into each other
In the city of angels I can’t get no sleep
I wish that I was sipping coffee in your kitchen
Yeah I’m stormy from the mountains to the sea

Left her standing
At the gate
Couldn’t talk I was running so late
Thought I heard her say goodbye
Saw the sun fade in her eyes

I brought my rain to California
All the way from Philadelphia, PA
And on the way my tears fell for you
I brought my rain to Cali, oh Cali, California

Wandering down to sunset strip in the morning
6 a.m. is that a rainbow that I see?
I interrupt my own damn conversation
Yeah I’m talking to myself at the Whiskey

I brought my rain to California
All the way from Philadelphia, PA
And on the way my tears fell for you
I brought my rain to Cali, oh Cali, California

Song for the Weekend (8/22/2019)

Throwin’ songs at you on Thursdays so your Fridays can be jammin’.

Throwin’ songs at you on Thursdays so your Fridays can be jammin’. Not a bad way to start the weekend. (I’ll link to this and all future songs here)

This week’s song is by The Bros Landreth.

Got to Be You

Joey Landreth, David Landreth, Wyatt Durette

She got her hand in my pocket
She walks with a swing
My baby she gives me that old school thang

Now she don’t mind
If the whole world stares
She’s so fine you know it just ain’t fair
She’s so fine you know it just ain’t fair

Oh, What can I do?
She’s the only one
I’m helpless it’s true
I’ve come undone
Honey It’s got to be you

When she calls me in the nighttime
Talkin’ sweet and low
My heart skips a beat oh brother don’t you know

When she kisses and a hugs me
It makes me wanna sing
She got a shiny kind of love like a diamond ring
Shiny kind of love like a diamond ring

Oh, What can I do?
She’s the only one
I’m helpless it’s true
I’ve come undone
Honey It’s got to be you

She got her hand in my pocket
And she walks with a swing
My baby she gives me that old school thang

When she kisses and a hugs me
It makes me wanna sing
She got a shiny kind of love like a diamond ring
Shiny kind of love like a diamond ring

Oh, What can I do?
She’s the only one
I’m helpless it’s true
I’ve come undone
Honey It’s got to be you
