these are a FEW of my favorite things #1
because you wanted a little diversion, not a part-time job
I don’t know about you, but I get very overwhelmed by long-ass lists:
TWENTY BEST Places to Eat…!
55 PRODUCTS YOU CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT!!
The 101 Books You MUST Read Before YOU DIE!!!
No, thanks. Even 10 can be a bit much sometimes.
Here are a FEW of my favorite things, because that’s how the song goes…
And I guess we’re doing poignant songs you might have missed from a generation ago, why not? No vids, just listens…⚫.o
So sweet, so simple, so sad…
Tarnation - “Is She Lonesome Now?” Album: Mirador, 1997
A capella with a little vocoder and a lot of heartache.
Imogen Heap - “Hide and Seek” Album: Speak For Yourself, 2005
This song still haunts me going on 30 years later…
Sinéad O’Connor - “Red Football” - Album: Universal Mother, 1994
**BONUS** One more for the road, a little bouncier, and cheeky lyrics…!
Shakin’ Stevens - “Green Door” - Album: Shaky, 1981 (original recording by Jim Lowe, 1956)

Really loved this. Sad but happy at the same time. Have you hear of LP's Muddy Waters?
I'd never heard that Sinéad O’Connor song. Damn. Loved that.
