Song Around The World

“I remember having a daydream about the opening acoustic guitar part of “All Along The Watchtower” ending with a Native American scream and a big native drum on the downbeat.

That was the spark to assemble one of our biggest and deepest Songs Around The World.

From Beirut to New Orleans to the Lakota Nation musicians play and sing like a musical army determined to stop suffering and greed all over the world. As a society we need to get back to our roots and connect deeper with our ancestors and native people in general so we can find the wisdom we need to move forward as a human race.

At the end of the day …. “In an “Adele” Frame of Mind …. Again”!!


~December 26, 2015~~ 


It’s no secret.

I’ve found a new love.

Not really in the real world (my real love is safe and sound).

In my music world!

I first became aware of Adele’s giant musical presence when my oldest grand-daughter, Angelika, was belting out her own version of “Someone Like You“.

It was a matter of time for me to start looking into this amazing voice.

I bought the “21” CD and knew that this was going to be and everlasting musical affair. Like many, I’ve waited for the next production. Not that long ago it appeared in the form of the recently released, totally successful and record braking “25” Album.

There was no disappointment.

The new musical production is simply amazing.

I’m now exploring her first album, “19“.

A friend posted a link to her YouTube video for this song ….

Make You Feel My Love

Today, I dedicate it to the real love in my life.

I hope you enjoy this song as much as I do.



Make You Feel My Love” is a song written by Bob Dylan that appeared on his 1997 album Time Out of Mind.

It was first released commercially by Billy Joel, under the title “To Make You Feel My Love”, before Dylan’s version appeared later that same year. It has since been covered by numerous performers and has proved to be a commercial success for recording artists such as Adele, Garth Brooks, Bryan Ferry and Kelly Clarkson.

Two covers of the song (one by Garth Brooks and one by Trisha Yearwood) were featured on the soundtrack of the 1998 film Hope Floats.

Dylan eventually released the song as a single.


In 2008, English recording artist Adele recorded “Make You Feel My Love” for her debut studio album 19 (2008). It was released as the album’s fifth and final single on October 27, 2008, both on CD and vinyl, peaking at number 4 on the UK Singles Chart. The largest sales of her recording, however, came during 2010–2011.

After the song was performed on the seventh series of The X Factor, it re-entered the UK charts at number 24. The song then surged to number four after a second performance. Following a third X Factor performance and heavy use in the Comic Relief 2010 telethon, it spent three more non-consecutive weeks in the UK top 10. In early 2011 the song returned to the top 40 again, at number 34, after it appeared in the 2011 series of Britain’s Got Talent. In all the cover spent a total of 55 weeks on the official UK Top 75, making it the joint 16th longest runner of all time.

Adele’s version features in the soundtrack of the 2010 romantic comedy film When in Rome. Her cover version was also featured in the compilation album for the benefit of those affected by Supertyphoon Haiyan in the Philippines entitled Songs for the Philippines

To start the day …. “Wishing and hoping”!!

~~September 28, 2014~~ 

A combined message: war, peace, rich folks, soldiers, timeless.

I found this graphic this morning as I browsed through the postings in Facebook. The reason I chose to post it is that even though this man lived from 1912 through 1967, I consider these words timeless. 

I assume that he lived through WWII, Korea and Vietnam and all the conflicts and “skirmishes” that happened during his life time. 

Yet, these words could very easily apply to our current times. 

If only ….. this would happen. 


“As it appears in …. “

Woodrow Wilson “Woody” Guthrie (July 14, 1912 – October 3, 1967) was an American singer-songwriter and folk musician whose musical legacy includes hundreds of political, traditional and children’s songs, ballads and improvised works. He frequently performed with the slogan This Machine Kills Fascists displayed on his guitar. His best-known song is “This Land Is Your Land.”

Many of his recorded songs are archived in the Library of Congress. Such songwriters as Bob Dylan, Phil Ochs, Bruce Springsteen, Robert Hunter, Harry Chapin, John Mellencamp, Pete Seeger, Andy Irvine, Joe Strummer, Billy Bragg, Jerry Garcia, Jay Farrar, Bob Weir, Jeff Tweedy, Bob Childers and Tom Paxton have acknowledged Guthrie as a major influence.

Many of his songs are about his experiences in the Dust Bowl era during the Great Depression when Guthrie traveled with displaced farmers from Oklahoma to California and learned their traditional folk and blues songs, earning him the nickname the “Dust Bowl Troubadour.”

Throughout his life Guthrie was associated with United States Communist groups, though he was seemingly not a member of any.
