‘Borderline.’

This came out in 1983, and I have to say: I respect the heck out of Madonna’s ruthlessness. I mean, she’s a talented artist, sure. But you could bounce rocks off of her ability to focus. It’s impressive.  I don’t think that it all makes her particularly happy, but it’s impressive.

Borderline, Madonna

‘Heart and Soul.’

Wow, this takes me back. What it was doing on the sidebar of an AC/DC Youtube video I’ll never know, though.

Heart and Soul, T’Pau

May the Fourth be with you!

And we have been given a wonderful gift this particular Fourth.  If you have not watched the Star Wars / Sgt Peppers Lonely Heart Club Band mashup by Palette-Swap Ninja, get on that.  Full video playlist here.

And the full album is available for free. Because this stuff is prime.

‘Mingulay Boat Song.’

It’s getting to be sea-shanty season.  Mid to late spring, if you’re wondering.  Warm enough to drink outside at night, cool enough that you need a campfire.

‘Steal My Sunshine.’

Hey, you know the pregnant lady in this video?  Yeah, her kid will be eligible to vote in the next Congressional election.

‘By My Side.’

I did this play my senior year in high school. This was maybe my favorite song from the musical, although I certainly didn’t sing it.

By My Side, Godspell

Had a good night, but I’m wiped.

The combination of two total hours of driving and a couple of hours rocking out at the concert have made me very, very tired. I had an excellent time, but it’s nice to be back home.  See you in the morning!

@sean_rowe concert tonight!

This is the Sean Rowe that I’m going to, which will pretty much eat up my entire evening. It’s in DC, so if you end up going I’ll be, again, the middle-aged geek with no ink who’s drinking a Coke*. Should be fun!

*I have nothing against booze, but I’ll be driving back home after dark and by myself on the Beltway.  I don’t need further complications there, you know what I mean?

‘Don’t Fence Me In.’

I liked it. Then I didn’t quite like it. Then I realized that I actually did like it after all.

Don’t Fence Me In, Ella Fitzgerald
