Why not?

“By the Time I Get to Phoenix,” which has some surprisingly intricate rhythms.

“Love Is a Many Splendor’d Thing.” Love this because I can belt when the second chorus comes around.

Not today, but “Days of Wine and Roses.” Can’t believe I hit such a bum note at or around “closing door,” which shouldn’t be hard.

(First one in my vocal lesson, other two in piano bars.)

admit it: you sang "hey jude".


my annoying opinions: whisky, food and occasional cultural commentary

 

current restaurant review: house of curry (sri lankan in rosemount, mn)

 

current whisky review: glen ord 28

 

current recipe: white bean curry with green peppers

 

 

facts are meaningless. you could use facts to prove anything that's even remotely true!

Playing in the background at a restaurant tonight: Bad Moon Rising. I quietly sang along and surprised myself by remembering nearly all the words.

In the shower this morning I sang my famous medley of “Joanne” and “Some of Shelley’s Blues”.

It’s probably not worth exploring why I reflexively sing Mike Nesmith once I have my clothes off.

Bad Moon Rising is very memorable, one of the first pop songs I kind of adopted as my own, against the background of having to listen to my parents’ music.

That and anything by T.Rex.

I often add “Propinquity”.

“Silver Moon” has too many words.

My college friend Lee has recorded a cover of “You Just May Be the One” so I feel like it’s been preempted.

I am doing a wash at the Bellayre Plaza in Pine Hill, so I’m writing new lyrics to Sister Christian.

Laundering! What’s your price for Tide?

Let’s hang this stuff outside.

I find T. Rex  hard to sing, though.  (God knows I try.)

I don’t sing T.Rex, they were just the first time I had my own music. Electric Warrior was the first (pop) album I bought. I had no elder siblings, so no introduction to contemporary music. Surrounded by my dad’s tastes as a kid from the sublime (Sinatra) to the slightly dull (British big band music).

Sang “Les Feuilles Mortes” today. Can nail this if I just remember how long the phrase “sans faire de bruit” needs to be held. Always get ahead of the music there.

A lot of people don’t even know that song has words. They think it’s a Miles Davis trumpet piece.

I knew it first as “Autumn Leaves,” but the French words have even Johnny Mercer beat. “Les pas des amants desunis...” You don’t have to speak French to hear the poetry.
