November Rain

(Nothing lasts forever... even cold November rain) "Everybody needs some time on their own.Don't you know you need some time all alone."

And in the end, the love you take is equal to the love you make.

If you got about 17 minutes to spare in your busy life, listen up. IMHO, compared to this, Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band(or anything else they did) doesn't hold a candle. They saved the best for last!!!

Is there anybody out there?

Dark Town Strutters Ball

1) The octogenarian (she had to spell it for me) who resides in my parlor,bolted upright in bed one day and started singing one line from this song.We searched the line on the internet and found it was from this song.Come to find out,my grandfather used to sing/ play it to her on his piano.

2) I was doing my mother's laundry today.When I opened the dryer door,I found a One Hundred dollar bill in the lint trap.Now this woman hasn't been to the bank in years.What's up with that?

3) I'm gonna win the lottery!

4) I'm Crazy!

Two statements are true,Two statements are false and two statements are possible-Hell,anything is possible!

Samba Pa Ti

I was listening to this song on my drive home from 7734(work).My first thought; for a song without lyrics :truer words were never spoken.In high school I aced Latin both years.However,in college I got a "D" in Spanish.It was the only class in my third semester that gave me a letter grade.What do expect when you only attend class for the first three weeks.Back to the song.Not being fluent (or literate) in Spanish,I got home and googled" samba pa ti" and this is what I found.Samba(type of Brazilian music) Pa or Para(for) Ti(you).I also found a unique meaning for Samba Pa Ti-"Through every step in life,freedom(e) comes from within".Google it for yourself and you will find only one link to those words and Samba Pa Ti.That's enough for me.Like I said:truer words were never spoken! P.S.-Nobody sings a song better than Carlos Santana without uttering a word!

Washington & Lee Swing

M: This is in tribute to your two grand dads. One attended W&L and the other probably "cut a mean rug" to the the W&L Swing (that man could dance).

Ripple

Grateful Dead

American Beauty

Side 2

Song 1

Probably one of my favorite songs of all time.

What was Robert Hunter trying to say?

I have my opinion.

Listen and decide for yourself.

In The Mood

Jimmy Stewart may have played him in his life story, but he could never play like him. But on the other hand, Glenn Miller could never have played the role of George Bailey in "It's A Wonderful Life". To each his own.

Blue sky

I love this song,this band and this particular version!

After the Gold Rush



My first post

About a month ago, after several attempts to retrieve my blogger name( one I had used in the past) were unsuccessful, I chose afterthegoldrush(no specific reason,the name just came to me).Instead of commenting on other blogs under anonymous,I wanted a blogger name again.And then it struck me.Why do I read these blogs? The answer was simple.Pure entertainment.So,the best way to entertain myself was to start my own blog.With some simple( how to) help from another blogger(thanks),here it is! I guess I almost had to start with this video,don't ya think?
