Musical Musings of a Mangled Mind

Today would have been John Lennon’s 80th birthday, had he not crossed paths with he who shall not be named, at least in this house, on December 8th, 1980, 40 years ago. He was back recording, loving life, family and music again. He was a big part of my life musically, and will remain so.

Santa Claus is Watching You

You just have to hear the name Ray Stevens and you smile. You smile at the thought of everything he’s done. You smile at the humor, at the emotion in songs like Everything is Beautiful. You smile at his talent. You just smile.

Well, here is one to smile at.

Counting Stars – A Love Poem

Counting Stars

Looking at the night time sky
Staring at the stars
counting all that we can see
Serenaded by the cars
clouded sky and rainy nights
full moon and sometimes none
I cherish counting stars with you
You are my only one

Making wishes on the shooting ones
Knowing what we see is gone
In the twinkle of an instant
Their light may now be done
In the darkness of a moon filled night
Lying, counting stars with you
It doesn’t matter how high we get
we may even just see two

I know we can not count them all
If we stay here ’till we die
The thing that is important
Is that we just give it a try
Each night we begin again
The stars come out to play
Counting stars each night with you
My first wish comes true each day

Imagine, if there’s someone there
Counting stars, and we are one
That they look at and imagine
On the far side of the sun
thinking, what is going on
Way out there in space
counting stars, like I with you
brings a smile to my face

Lying here just holding hands
And counting stars we see
Just knowing that this point in time
belongs to you and me
counting some we do not see
A speck in outer space
Lying, counting stars with you
this is my favorite place

I know we can not count them all
If we stay here ’till we die
The thing that is important
Is that we just give it a try
Each night we begin again
The stars come out to play
Counting stars each night with you
My first wish comes true each day

Sleigh Ride – The Ronettes

Time to whip back into festive mood music. Here is The Ronettes, produced by Phil Spector. He was a great producer, but, mentally as unstable as Charles Manson at times. While he did create great sounds, he would fall into the dark category for tonight.
