On my last day of w**k, I made vow to dance to every GD song I hear. Looks kinda odd in the supermarket, Ms G always want to run and hide.

This topic is very relevant to me as this morning I was gathering some "wake up music" of mp3's for the time when driving long trips and keeping me from dozing.

Here's my selection, thus far.

1. Led Zep - Stairway to Heaven

2. Led Zep - Black Dog

3. Rolling Stones - Miss You

4. George Benso - On Broadway

5. Rick James - Super Freak

I only saw them twice. Back in my Navy days in Norfolk. Both good shows. If you have the SXM channels on your TV, the Grateful Dead Channel [6023 on Dish] plays three full shows a day. I have recorded several hundred on DVD. It is just the sound, but still, it will round out your Dead library in a hurry.

Grasshopper, I do a little Dead dancing myself. About the only dancing I do. But there isn't such a thing as being out of step. Fast or slow, there is a groove for you.

I have the GD SiriusXM channel set on my car radio. It's great for long drives.

Mr Blue Sky - ELO


Sun is shinin' in the sky,
There ain't a cloud in sight
It's stopped rainin'
Everybody's in a play
And don't you know
It's a beautiful new day.

Runnin' down the avenue,(Pant, Pant, Pant)
See how the sun shines brightly
In the city on the streets
Where once was pity,
Mr. Blue Sky is living here today.

[Chorus:]
Mr. Blue Sky, please tell us why,
You had to hide away
For so long where did we go wrong.

Hey there Mr. Blue
We're so pleased to be with you
Look around see what you do,
Everybody smiles at you.

Hey you with the pretty face,
Welcome to the human race
A celebration Mr. Blue Sky's
Up there waitin' and today
Is the day we've waited for

[Chorus]

Mr. Blue you did it right,
But soon comes Mr. Night,
Creepin' over, now his
Hand is on your shoulder,
Never mind I'll remember you this way.

[Chorus]

The other night after all the bankers got out of the building so I could go to work, I put on a DVD of old Austin City Limit shows. Heard this song and wanted to post it. This is the first time I have got back. Here is a little seasonally adjusted Prophet for you guys.

I find it difficult to play this at anything less than high volume. Turn this one all the way to 11 and it'll energize you for any task at hand.

Seriously, I *DARE* anybody to listen to this whole medley with the volume turned up, and without getting up and moving. This is what I have been listening to at the gym lately, and man oh man, it really fills me with so much energy. I just had to share!!!!

Sorry, the sight of an accordion always makes me think of Gary Larson:

Huge culture gap for some members, I know. You're not going to hear much zydeco without one, or at least a concertina.

Usually fast tempo and dominated by the button or piano accordian and a form of a washboard known as a "rub-board," "scrub-board," "wash-board," or frottoir, zydeco music was originally created at house dances, where families and friends gathered for socializing.

OK, I had my doubts, but.... ZYDECO! Yep, that just has to get you moving! Cool.

A listen to Clifton Chenier (the King of Zydeco!), and Mr Larson will need to change his tune.

I think accordion gets a bad rap because of excessive association with polka. But it crops up in lots of styles and adds a nice flavor. It's just one of those "weirdo" instruments. Like pedal steel guitar.

I like accordion,es pecially in an energizing tune accompanied by a great singer. THough the energizing is more along the lines of Amore. I grew up listening to his music, had no visuals then, TV did not exist in my childhood in Hungary.
