All My Friends are Crazy - 500 Miles to Memphis

I'm a big fan of this band and the sound, just enough country to suit me and more than rockin' enough to make me love this particular tune of theirs. (among others) The lyrics of the song hit close to home because all of my friends in real life have been a little bit crazy. (and some of my online ones, too)

I don't think I could dance to it, though. I think I'd need three legs to do this two-step.

Heat Wave - Martha & the Vandellas

One of the best rock 'n roll songs of all time.

Note: a bump from July '08 (and think that was a bump from a year previous - I *think* this is one of the first music vids I posted)

Why the bump? Because it's HOT here!

Another bump, even though it's not that hot today. I just like the tune.

In The Summertime - Mungo Jerry

In honor of the first day of summer.

This song makes me happy, but it also makes me sad that I can remember when it came out in 1970.

Other than it urging the listener to drink and drive - "have a drink, have a drive, go out and see what you can find" - it's a cool tune.

This was a "bump" from last year; I had posted the video on my Facebook wall earlier and thought I'd just come here and force it to the top of the page again. When doing a search, I found another, different version of this tune I had posted back in 2008.

Sorry, but it's a cool song, no matter how many times I post or bump it up!

You've Got Another Thing Comin'-Judas Priest

A "bump" because the original video had been taken down.

It's also worth a bump because it's such a kick-ass tune.

Wish You Were Here - Pink Floyd

A "bump" from April '09.

Last night I was binge-watching the new series Timeless and a cover of this was at the end of one of the earlier episodes. I knew I had posted it before, but found it was now blocked from being viewed in the U.S. due to copyright concerns. This version is also live, but not with all of Pink Floyd, only David Gilmour.

After watching the episode, I came online and listened to several versions of the tune, both studio and live in concert as well as some covers. I then researched the lyrics to find out if there was any specific reference being made. What I found out was very interesting: Behind the Song: Pink Floyd’s “Wish You Were Here”. That said, I've always thought the lyrics were fascinating, well crafted to match the lovely melody.

Four Winds - Bright Eyes

Stumbled across this vid here a while back and I'm not for sure whether I want to buy the album or boo along with the audience.

Lovely tune, strange lyrics. It's a protest, but I'm not for sure against WHAT.

Update:  Some interpretations of the lyrics.

Stranglehold - Ted Nugent

Happy Birthday (born 1948) to the Motor City Madman!

She Loves You - The Beatles

"She Loves You" was released in the UK on this day in 1963.

Livin' Thing - ELO

One of my most favorite songs from one of my most favorite groups.

The song begins talking about the exhilaration of falling in love, then the lows that follow the loss of that love. Love truly is a "living thing".

I've Been Thinking About You - Londonbeat

Noticed the original video had been taken down, an expected hazard of posting videos.
