Not Guilty, Just Pleasure Friday - Passionate Kisses

How was your week?  Do you totally love that it's Friday (yes, I do realize that for two days now I've announced the day of the week and if you're reading this on a future Tuesday you won't really care)? And it's the Friday of a long weekend! AND I'm only working a 1/2 day today so that's all pretty good stuff.

The week has been filled with a lot of pretty good stuff actually. Has your week been full of good stuff?

Been listening to some good new music and some beloved favourites too. Originally, I planned to post a different song but haven't been able to track down a video for it yet (I said "yet" - when I find one I'll share it so I'll not tell you what it is today).  I switched gears a bit but I think you'll like it.

The song I'm sharing with you today is an oldie but oh so such a goodie.  A lot of folks, folks who aren't paying attention you could say, think that this song is a Mary Chapin Carpenter song but it's not (and really, her version sounds like she was trying to copy the original).  This song is a Lucinda Williams song.  She wrote it, I love how she sings it (her voice is just the shit!) and it's a toe tapper.  Of course, after you listen to it, you realize that for Lucinda, it's definitely not too much to demand a full house and a rock and roll band!

Enjoy kiddies xo

Because it's Tuesday - week of May 15

Abba.

Do I really need to say much about them?

I think most young girls in the 1970's were fans of them.  Pure perfect pop. I know all of the words to more Abba songs that I would care to admit but here I am, telling you.  It feels good actually.  Whew, I like Abba. 

Anyway, just going to drop this here for you.  It's a very sweet cover of "Winner Takes It All" by Carla Bruni.

Not Guilty, Just Pleasure Friday - Gypsy

For a couple of weeks now this song has been in my head, a lot.  Not sure why but you can't always figure these things out.

There is something about hearing Stevie Nicks sing that just makes me smile.  She just seems like the kind of person who gives no fucks what folks think about her, she's just happy in herself, loving her music.  Now, this is a Fleetwood Mac song not a Stevie Nicks song, I know.  I have a lot of good memories from my childhood which are attached to Fleetwood Mac.  My friends and I would listen to them a lot.  By the time I was in high school, they became a bit of a guilty pleasure for me as I started to discover "cooler" music.  I still listen to that cool music but I also still enjoy Fleetwood Mac.

Anyway, I wanted to share this very very 80's video with you for Gypsy. It really does look like 1982 (except the retro bits) if 1982 could have a look.  Let me know if you get this stuck in your head too lovelies xo

CanCon Thursday – Who Knows How to Make Love Stay

I have kept a "cancon" playlist for my listening pleasure for many years now. Once I add something to the list, I never remove it and I continue to add to it. It's a cool list, it has cheesy chunks and overall is fun and wonderfully Canadian.

I was listening to it the other day and remembered that I had a juicy chunk of Doug and the Slugs songs saved. I used to love hearing these songs pop up on the radio. They were fun, toe taping, car singing tunes. Still are but I wonder how often they pop up on the radio these days.  In any event, I'm sharing one today, hope you enjoy it kiddies xo
