So a rainy morning and a little bored….so what shall we do? Write a BLOG! But wait, I have that huge pile of boxes with cables, cords, plugs and chargers. Years of cell phones, cameras, attachments, clips, pins ugh!!! Do I clean or write…
And then it hits me – Crank up the music – clean the mess and lets get inspired!
So I find one of my favorite bands of all time – THE POLICE – AND CRANK IT UP! An I mean 200 watts of full power – huge bass – killer mid’s and high notes so clear they can break glass……now that’s How to spend a rainy Saturday morning!
Ya know – I just don’t really do this enough. When was the last time you just put on music – REALLY LOUD – and danced, laughed at old memories it brought back from high school – like hanging in Theo’s basement, or cruising around to Naugles, Steak n’ Shake or your favorite spot seeing who is there? And I must tell you, the 80’s were some of the best years for music ever – great beats, great lyrics, new wave and old rock transforming into a new sound. And before the “rap” stuff became so popular and destroyed real music – real musicians – guitar driven songs with soul.
Anyway – that’s enough of the granger whitelaw rant on music appreciation. Whatever your style, musical choice or what you ’dig’ as they say in New Orleans and other Jazz towns – Here is my suggestion for you:
Put down the iPhone or iPad – turn off the TV and close the doors. Go get the kids and grab some great old tunes — and TURN IT UP LOUD! Show them how we used to have fun before all this multi media and the gadgets that drive them took over our minds and made Zombies out o us all.
GOTTA GO—- De Do DO DO , De Da Da Da….. ROCK!
