This is stuck in my head due to a Chad & Jeremy reference during Danger: Death Ray:
This song was playing on a laundry detergent commercial in the summer of 2003 when my brother told me the news report just said my friend Jeremy died in the rip-tide at Point Pelee - they found his body a week after the memorial service. A beautiful song that holds a deep amount of sorrow for me; so beautiful, I can still enjoy it amid the sadness. Uncannily fitting for such a situation.
Tis the season…. For us Nutcracker people to get Waltz of the Flowers stuck in our heads!
This song is stuck in my head because I watched this reaction video about it a few days ago. It is definitely one of the better tracks off of “Hydra”, an symphonic metal album that went a bit too pop for my typical tastes.
My brain is at it again…
Dum de hee hee… hoa hoa…
I fought the law and the law won. The version by The Clash.
Started 5 days ago, other songs have popped into my head for a moment but that one just keeps coming back.
LOVE Brubeck, I was at this performance at Detroit Jazzfest in 2007; I must’ve been just a few people over from this videographer, because my view was almost from the same angle. He improvised a beautiful piece about Detroit later. Go, Dave!
In the late 50s/early 60s, my dad had tickets to a jazz tour that included going backstage after the show… at which he got to meet Brubeck, Stan Kenton, Gerry Mulligan, and more.
I don’t have enough green crayons to convey my envy.
Not enough green crayons in the world! Stan Kenton! Wow!! I’ll just placate my envy with the whole, “Don’t get close to your heroes” proverb.
Probably because I fell asleep listening to music around 3am last night, but woke up with “Death Trip” - Bad Livers in my head…but, by the time I finished running errands for family, it was “Manifesto No.1” - Shooter Jennings…
Autumn Leaves - Cannonball Adderley
