Random Jukebox – Billie Holiday Edition

February 22, 2012 22 comments

 

It’s getting late, the Dinner Party has run its course and appears to be long done, clean up crews have scrubbed and detailed the Random Thoughts home from top to bottom, and the place seems a bit quiet and empty.  All the rowdy guests migrated over to Mardi Gras, and I’m happy to report all had fun with no serious problems, save for a few morning-after headaches experienced by a few of our followers.

Me?  I’ll be traveling the next few days.  I’ll be scarce around these parts, but tonight I think I’ll pour myself a nice elixir from the bar and toss a few coins in the Jukebox for the evening as I unwind a little before turning in for the evening.  Come on and join me.  Go ahead, walk over the the bar.  There’s a guy in a white jacket and black bow-tie waiting to serve you.  Kick off your shoes and put up your feet, or, if you are so inclined, grab your sweetheart and spend a few moments dancing cheek to cheek.  I’ll start it off with a few from the Billie Holiday songbook – such a hauntingly soulful voice.

 

 

 

 

 

While I’m gone, feel free to throw a few coins in the ole Jukebox and dial up a song of your choice in the comment section below.  Anything goes – any style, artist, and genre.  I’d love to hear what you pick out.  I’ll try to peek in whenever I can to get a listen.  In the meantime, enjoy the company of each other and behave.  Or maybe not…

Winding Down With The Blues

July 19, 2011 4 comments

 

Late night again, and looking for a nice way to unwind musically.  I’m in the mood for some slooooow blues.  If you are too, grab a nightcap of your choice, don a set of headphones while I cue up a set of blues songs, and drift off into some relaxation, blues style.

Last Night – The Mannish Boys

Every Day I Have The Blues (Nobody Loves Me) – Ray Charles featuring G.D. McKee

If Trouble Was Money – Albert Collins

Ah… that hit the spot.
