Feels like Sade’s “By Your Side” and I love every bit of that.
Bach is how buildings got taller. It’s how we got to the moon.
My dream is still to have one in my bedroom. No, wait: my kitchen. By the woodstove. Friends and I went to the most fruitful antique shop in the county today and he had four boxes of records. Burt Bacharach, The Commodores, Gordon Lightfoot. I don’t even really care. Just to hear it spinning, a proper analog sound.
Frederic Chopin - Nocturne in C Minor, Op. Posth. - Vladimir Ashkenazy
Least known, least performed/recorded of all the Nocturnes (for no good reason at all).
I was supposed to work through the night, finally sewing again it only seemed right. Then one break turned into two, then another, and then Miles. I’m not an afficienado, not of his work, discography or biography, but his voice is as distinct as it needs to be. And he can talk to me whenever, especially when my mind can’t figure out the right words to say.
Some people have lives; some people have music.
Happy Birthday to ya Stevie Wonder!!! My favorite musical genius was born 63 years ago today as Steveland Hardaway Judkins (his last name was later changed to Morris) in Saginaw, Michigan. In this 1974 photo, he is performing his classic “Living For The City” on “Top Of The Pops” in London. Photo: David Warner Ellis/Redferns. In the comment section, let me know what your favorite Stevie song is (Is it possible to have just one?)
