After a rather heated argument my hubby puts this mess on. Dirty pool who could stay mad at a guy listening to this. We started slow dancing and then well...........

These guys can beg with the best of them.

Black Velvet. Alannah Myles was too young to have experienced the longing for Elvis expressed in this song but that didn't stop her from singing it straight from her heart, soul and female parts.

Huey just turned 61. Wonder if he's ER'd. Haven't heard much from him in years. I know it's unfair, but I often think those blessed with such a gift as (in this case) Huey has should never retire - as long as they can continue to inspire audiences. Still, I wish him all the best for the joy he brought to DW and I in younger days. Still pull out his CDs occasionally. Saw him in concert at the height of the SPORTS tour and later for the FORE tour. Sounded as good on stage (maybe better) as the studio albums. Just amazing musicians - having fun!

Tickets - less than $20 for each tour. Unbelievable!

As far as genre's go, I think Qawwali music has passion as one
of it's essential elements.

Here's an interesting link that talk's about it a bit before showing a segment
of the Sabri brothers qawwali troup. It's not your conventional western stuff,
but if you give it a chance, it's pretty interesting and inspiring music.



Here's one of my favorites on amazon if you end up being interested:

"When a Man Loves a Woman" is a song recorded by Percy Sledge in 1966.
Before the recording session, the song had no title or lyrics. Sledge improvised the lyrics with minimal pre-planning. The song is credited to Calvin Lewis and Andrew Wright, who played bass and keyboards with Sledge. However, the song was in fact written by Percy Sledge himself, but he gave it to Lewis and Wright.

I got as far as "improvised" and this song popped into my mind. Richie Havens was the opening act at Woodstock. At the end of the set he was asked to go back onstage because everything wasn't ready for the next act. He and his band had already played everything they had prepared so he improvised on the lyrics of a traditional slave era song.

Video is from the Woodstock documentary. Watch and listen to the other band members as they figure out how they can contribute.

Two songs:

Come Monday by Jimmy Buffett reminds me of why I love my sweetie so much.

<iframe width="420" height="315" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/e0---Q97pG4" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

and You Were Always on my Mind by Elvis reminds me of those odd (very odd) times when I disappoint her.
