[A fun repeat from January 5, 2014] I play guitar. And I love the Blues (see post of April 20, 2012). I also do okay with drums –learned from my old friend Paul S. of the “Shadows of Knight” (I went to high school with the original Shadows). I’ll occasionally sit at the computer and play along with music videos or downloads. And sing. You could sell seats for that. . . .
Do you ever log on to music videos? Some of the best I’ve seen – old and new – with millions of “listens” – are the following. Oh come ON. Check it out. At least, click on the link to Little Richard. And
Spencer Davis – “Gimme some Lovin'” – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VxA3atHD2QM (1966 – really good stuff)
Little Richard – “Good Golly Miss Molly” – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kZ6h0kyqSRk (You will smile)
Jerry Lee Lewis – “Great Balls of Fire” – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7IjgZGhHrYY (for a 3 piece group – an amazing presentation)
Billy Lee Riley – “My Gal is Red Hot” – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KylmByeB6bg Corny but. . . . .
Kenny Chesney – “She Thinks my Tractor’s Sexy” – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uWu4aynBK7E (there are several iterations of the video. This is a good one. Great for boot scootin’)
Michael Jackson – “Thriller” – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hG6oy46qKE4 (best music video of the ’80’s. I miss MJ’s creativity)
Lady Gaga (Yeah – Lady Gaga) – “Poker Face” – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bESGLojNYSo (Whoa! Nearly 700 million hits!)
I tell Donna I should get my old group back together (“Scott and the Bookends” – two girls and me – a/k/a the “Corydon Trio’). But Donna responds “Don’t quit the day job, Elvis.” (Sigh) Wait a minute. . . . maybe Lady Gaga needs a backup guitarist. . . . .
