Good morning all
Ok - a question for you! - who - like me wakes up with a song in their head every morning - what was it today? - There's no rhyme or reason to the songs that pop in there - today o-bla-dee- o bla- da. - A hit for The Marmalade in the late 60's I think but actually a great Paul McCartney song. There now I've totally spoiled your day lol - try getting that out of your head
Sometimes the songs change over the day, but they're always there. For me yesterday was an Eagles day - they often are for me, I play The Eagles a lot as I craft, and I was so sad to hear of the death of Glenn Frey, The Eagles have always been my favourite band - right back to the early seventies when I started my love affair with music. My dog Glenn was named after Glenn Frey because we picked him up on the way back from an Eagles concert in Manchester. But its funny - as I started off saying -what my brain picks as the song of the day - with all the massive Eagles songs, and I have lots of favourites, yesterday was the little known early song Whatever happened to Saturday night. (this is the link to a youtube video) I love the easy country style of the Eagles as well as their big blasting hits. Ah well - end of an era - but it was a fun, great one.
