Friday Music

It's Friday. I need music.

My daughter has a piano recital this weekend at the WVU Creative Arts Center, and I can't wait. She loves playing so much that watching her does my heart good, and to see her in a more formal setting like this is exciting to me (even though she doesn't seem to care too much one way or the other).

So this week's theme is performing -- as always, interpret it however you want. (If you're new here, just post links to songs that you like that somehow fit the category.)

Here's one to get it going....

I'm loving today's suggestions so far.

Geto Boy: You can never have too much Billy Joel. And Neil? Bustin' out the big guns.

Rob: You ready to throw up in your mouth a little? You know who "Talent Show" reminds me of big-time? Bright Eyes. Your favorite.

Zee: Great Bowie cover. It's like an all-star Friday Music so far!

That makes me smile. Got to get satellite radio. Must stop listening to same radio stations.

Speaking of Bright Eyes...

Tom Waits—Innocent When You Dream

Blind Melon—No Rain Possibly one of my favourite videos. I think we've all felt like that kid at some point in our lives.

Bugs Bunny—Rhapsody Rabbit

TV On The Radio | The Golden Age - super funky. They were very loud when they played in Denver.

I vividly remember Shannon Hoon's untimely and tragic death. Sad.

That video reminds me of one of favorite movies, Little Miss Sunshine. And yes, we have all been her at one time.

I’m a little late to the party this week.

This tune has been on my mind and represents “performing” but in a casual setting.
