Hard to pick favorites with his music, but this one is towards the top.
Love this song.
Just never get tired of this one.
Amusement park closed
Daddy carries his daughter
Passed out in his arms
A boat on the sea
Waves carry the brave sailor
Forward towards home
Through the fire and flames
One by one he carried them
No man left behind

I kept hearing these songs when I wrote this.
I thought I would share.
An even draw. I honestly think they both are great. I couldn’t choose between them. They both just have such a good easy breezy vibe. Either one will put you in a positive mood and take you away for a bit.
So, which do you prefer?
The original or the cover.
Jimmy’s version is just better. It has more life and more energy, and it has long been one of my concert favorites. I don’t know how many times I’ve just gone bug nuts when he started to play this song. I knew this would be a lopsided one for me today, a biased one if you want to say it that way, but I had to post his cover of this song. It is just such a great cover.
So, which do you prefer?
The original or the cover.
Classic Eagles songs
Gentle, smooth, takes you away
Sets your mind at ease
(5 Stars out of 5)
I just finished watching this Music Documentary on Netflix. If you have that streaming service you should stop reading, and head on over there now. This is a fascinating watch that showcases the Eagles career in great detail. I knew a lot about them, but this documentary really shines a light on what this band was like from the inside and out. I can’t recommend this one enough. It has put me back in an Eagles mood once again, and honestly that mood isn’t hard to get back into once you start listening to their music. Such a great band that gave us so many great songs. I will shut up now.
So, Eagles fan or not? Spill it below.
Never been a gigantic fan of this song, and I’m not a big fan of Godsmack either. So, why post these songs you may ask? Because Godsmack’s version of this song is great. It really gives this song a punch I didn’t think it had. Listen to the original and then the remake. Tell me you don’t agree.
The cover version.
So, which is your favorite? I like the energy of the remake. It makes me want to listen to this song a lot more now. Guess that means I am leaning more to that one.
Parrothead alert: Jimmy Buffett has a new studio CD, “Songs From St. Somewhere”, with 15 brand new recordings, plus a bonus track. The album was recorded this spring in various locals including Key West, Nashville, Austin, Miami, and St. Barts.
The first single “Too Drunk to Karaoke” is a duet with Toby Keith. Jimmy and Toby are currently shooting a video for the song, directed by Michael Salomon.
Other song titles are “Somethin’ ‘Bout a Boat”, “Einstein Was A Surfer”, “I Want to Go Back to Cartagena”, “Tides”, and “Useless But Important Information”
The bonus track is “I Want to Go Back to Cartagena”, a Spanish version duet with the Latin singer Fannie Lu.
I’m always trying something new around here, so you, fellow blog reader, will not get bored. My latest attempt to keep you entertained. Reviewing music with Haiku. First up, Jimmy’s newest. I know, I know, most people probably don’t understand why he keeps doing it, but he does, and we Parrotheads love it – me included. I really enjoy this CD, but I know it isn’t his best. I would say three and a half stars out of five. Some instant grabbers and some growers, but hey, it’s new Buffett and I will take it.
By the way, I have a new follower on this blog I want to pass along to you. My buddy Jimmy is running this blog: http://audiblextacy.wordpress.com/ and yours truly is featured on the podcasts over there. He’s trying to get some love for his blog so if you want, check him out.

Thanks for following, thanks for reading.
A classic rock band
Great music and smooth vocals
The sound of my youth
I will always lean to the Steve Perry years because that is what I know and grew up on, but that song Resonate is pretty solid. I hadn’t heard it before I worked on this post and wound up listening to it a few times. Really, really, good song – solid like they have always been even with a new lead singer.
So, your call, New School or Old School, what’s your choice?

Aerosmith – good tunes
Three and a half solid miles
Lightning bugs flashing
(this song really got me moving last night)
Some more good reasons to drink coffee, helps with running as well.
Caffeine (in coffee or otherwise) improves performance… Hundreds of studies have shown that consuming caffeine before a physical challenge likely helps subjects go farther and faster than when they go without it. This effect holds true in studies of both endurance athletes and sprinters.
Son of a preacher
Man known for the guillotine
Iconic Shock Rock
Australian Rock Band
With thumping tempos and beats
Yes, we salute you
Tiny, small rain drops
Tumbling, falling from the sky
Trees drip with water
Rain shower washing them clean
Nourishment for Spring
Clouds of ashen grey
Hold hostage the sun above
Release date, unknown
White bark on the tree
Rain, a river racing down
Forming small puddles
Do you Haiku? If you do, maybe you could throw a few rain based Haiku my way. Just drop them in the comment section below.

jutting from a denim skirt,
boots up to the knees
