Haiku – 3 Looks at Carry

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.

Cover Song Saturday: Jimmy Buffett – Mexico

The Original

The Cover

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.

Cover Song Saturday: Johnny B. Goode – Peter Tosh vs. Judas Priest

I think we all know the original. It is a classic that can’t be touched. No artist could ever cover it and make it better than Chuck Berry.

The original is great. I’ve stated that already, so let’s move onto the covers. Both of which are unique in their own way.

First, Peter Tosh

Second, Judas Priest

I love Heavy Metal, proud to say that, but I have to give the nod this time to Peter Tosh. He didn’t just remake this song louder and heavier like Judas Priest, but he took the song and made it his own. The reggae beat and the new lyrics splashed throughout just gives this song a totally different feel and it works from start to finish.

So, which do you prefer?

Peter Tosh or Judas Priest

Cover Song Saturday: Jimmy Buffett – Southern Cross

The Original

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.

Movie Review Haiku: History of the Eagles

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.

Cover Song Saturday – Godsmack: Rocky Mountain Way

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 original.

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.

Pretty good CD

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: 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.  

If you want some more musical stuff from yours truly you can find it here:

Thanks for following, thanks for reading.

Haiku – Journey

A classic rock band

Great music and smooth vocals

The sound of my youth


New School 


Old School


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?

For more Journey:

Haiku – Last Night’s Run – (6/19/2013)

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.

Haiku – Dio

Gone from us too soon

With vocals that filled the sky

Always a legend

I was listening to some good metal music on Pandora this morning and Dio came on.  It just got me to missing his incredible talent and from that came this Haiku.  Long live Dio.

Haiku – Falling Raindrops

Tiny, small rain drops

Tumbling, falling from the sky

Cascading shower

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.
