The Magic Of Billy Joel

Of all the great music I’ve loved in my life, much of which I’ve posted here, there’s none that’s more dear to me than that of Billy Joel and Elton John. The thing is, I’ve featured Elton John on this blog far more often than I have the great Billy Joel. I’d like to begin to remedy that imbalance with this post.

But how, exactly, does one select from such an incredible career? Well, not for the first time, I’ve literally spent hours searching for, and listening to, videos of his music, trying to narrow it down. Here’s what I’ve come up with…

Three Dog Night

A Three Dog Night Sing-A-Long!

M-R’s comment on my previous post reminded me that I’ve done a very poor job of representing one of my favorite bands on this blog – Three Dog Night. The thing is, how does one go about paying tribute to a band that had 21 consecutive top 40 hits? Well, for me at least, the solution is easy…

I’ll simply post the ones that I sang along to the most!

Tori Amos

Norah Jones and Tori Amos on PBS!

As I’ve said many times, I’m a huge fan of the PBS Network. For news, science and nature, and even drama, its programming is really hard to beat. But did you know they have excellent music shows on there as well? I just had to search out these videos after seeing Norah Jones on “Austin City Limits” and Tori Amos on “Infinity Hall Live” last night. They aren’t the exact performances I saw, but they will definitely do!

Post Valentine Reflections…

Love. It transcends age, distance and time. It is what connects the human spirit to the world around us and to each other. It is the ebb and flow between two souls, a continual conversation that requires no words. It is the beauty that resonates long after the skin has faded and our bodies have grown soft.

Love. It is the purpose and meaning of our existence. It is why, year after decade, century after millennium we continue. Continue to share, continue to smile, continue to reach out and be part of something bigger than ourselves.
