I'm a melancholy man. That's what I am.

 

 

 

Hmm, it says the video contains material from Eagle Rock and can't be played in "your" country.  Weird.  Maybe I can find it on YouTube.  We Americans don't like to be told "no!" ;)

I was reading Carole Bayer Sager's memoir and hadn't realized she'd co-written this song.  Her writing partner, Toni Wise, had taken a chunk of the melody from Muzio Clementi's "Sonatina Opus 36, Number 5."  Fortunately for them, the composer was long dead and didn't ask for any rights.  CBS wrote that one day she came home to find a $34,000 royalty check for it--not bad for 1966!

Very saddened by the news of Chris Cornell's sudden death. He was one of the great voices in heavy rock and helped define the 90's sound.

Favorite lyrics:

 

The creature in the sky/Got sucked in the hole, now there's a hole in the sky

By a strange coincidence, the headline in the local newspaper

had the word Allman in it. When I spread it out it said Allman

Honored, Allman being a local teacher. R.I.P. Gregg.

I know that there are not many (if any) people on this forum who would say they like hip hop, so posting this video probably won't convince them otherwise. But I feel that denying that the genre didn't have any sort of cultural impact would be foolish at least. So here is a personal favorite of mine from that much maligned genre.

Ate a peach in memory in Gregg Allman.  So many leaving us, and too soon.  I didn't own their music, but it was everywhere then, on the radio, TV, people's stereos.

I've never been fond of peach fuzz so I made a peach Jello and ate that.

Watched a Monterey Pop Festival anniversary special on PBS--50 years ago this month!  Found the bands and set lists on a website and was struck by how many performances, and even bands, didn't make it into the documentary.  So much great music, too much I guess.

 

Alas, this from Neil and Buffalo Springfield didn't make it.  Couldn't find the footage from Monterey--maybe--horrors!--it hit the cutting room floor:

Wasn't liked by the Evening Sun,

Almost became a left-wing savior,

Certainly made one hell of a run.
