I was hesitant on posting this one bc it is quite eclectic… I’ve been told that I was very odd for liking this song so much… The lyrics complement the pain and satisfy a dark hunger… RIP to the singer….

Pain works on a sliding scale
So does pleasure in a candy jail
True love doesn’t come around any more than fate allows on a Monday in Ft. Lauderdale
I came all this way to see your grave
To see your life as written paraphrased
I have tried be it is written in the furnace of affliction
This is what you couldn’t faceLife in a candy jail
Peppermint bars
Peanut brittle bunk beds and marshmallow walls
Where the guards are gracious
And the grounds are grand
And the warden keeps the data on your favorite brandsJelly beans and cookie dough
Country restroom on a radio
I got a number on my name
It’s hard to rise above the shame
I’m a branded man made in the moldThese terms engulf the waking mind.
Like cherry, grape and lemon-lime
Like candy corn and licorice
Like bubble gum and Swedish fish
It happens to me all the timeLiving in a candy jail
With peppermint bars
Peanut brittle bunk beds
And marshmallow walls
Where the guards are gracious
And the grounds are grand
And the warden really listens
And he understands

Cheers… “Sumnabitch”… This video reminds me of the movie Cry Baby… One of my child-ish hood faves. 🥰

I’m gonna need someone to help me
I’m gonna need somebody’s hand
I’m gonna need someone to hold me down
I’m gonna need someone to care
I’m gonna writhe and shake my body
I’ll start pulling out my hair
I’m going to cover myself with
The ashes of you and nobody’s gonna give a damnSon of a bitch
Give me a drink
One more night
This can’t be me
Son of a bitch
If I can’t get clean
I’m gonna drink my life away

Oh oh
Oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh
Oh oh
Oh oh oh oh ohNow for seventeen years I’ve been throwing them back
Seventeen more will bury me
Can somebody please just tie me down
Or somebody give me a goddamn drink

Son of a bitch
Give me a drink
One more night
This can’t be me
Son of a bitch
If I can’t get clean
I’m gonna drink my life away

Mhm, mhm
Mhm, mhm, mhm, mhm
Mhm, mhm
Mhm, mhm, mhm, mhmMy heart was breaking, hands are shaking, bugs are crawling all over me
My heart was breaking, hands are shaking, bugs are crawling all over me
My heart was breaking, hands are shaking, bugs are crawling all over me
My heart was breaking, hands are shaking, bugs are crawling all over meSon of a bitch
Give me a drink
One more night
This can’t be me
Son of a bitch
If I can’t get clean
I’m gonna drink my life away

Son of a bitch
Give me a drink
Son of a bitch
This can’t be me
Son of a bitch
If I can’t get clean
I’m gonna drink my life awayOh oh

BOOGIE ON REGGAE WOMAN-STEVIE WONDER-1974

His lyrics are so playful and naughty! (Giggle) A great song to dance to, as well!

I like to see you boogie right across the floor
I like to do it to you ’till you holla for more
I like to reggae but you dance too fast for me
I’d like to make love to you so you can make me scream So boogie on reggae woman, what is wrong with me?
Boogie on reggae woman, baby can’t you see? I’d like to see both of us fall deeply in love
I’d like to see you under, under the stars above, yes I would
I’d like to see both of us fall deeply in love, yeah
I’d like to see you in the raw under the stars aboveSo boogie on reggae woman, what is wrong with you?
Boogie on reggae woman, what you tryin’ to do? Can I play? Can I play? Boogie on reggae woman, what is wrong with you?
Boogie on reggae woman, what you tryin’ to do?
Boogie on reggae woman, let me do it to you
Boogie on reggae woman, what you tryin’ to do?

This song was originally done in October of 1953 by Guitar Slim. His version is great; but there is just something about the way JB sings this song. He bellows it with SO much passion behind it; even if one didn’t know anything of his life story the listener could just tell, he wants to believe what he is singing.-🥰

The things that I used to do
Lord, I won’t do no more
The things that I used to do
Lord, I won’t do no more
I used to sit and hold your hand, baby
Crying, begging you not to goI would search all night for you, baby
Lord, and my search would always end in vain
I would search all night for you, baby
Lord, and my search would always end in vain
But I knew all along, darling
That you was hid out with your other manI’m going to send you back to your mother, baby
Lord, and I’m going back to my family, too
I’m going to send you back to your mother, baby
Lord, and I’m going back to my family, too
‘Cause nothing I do that please you, baby
Lord, I just can’t get along with you

Tuesday Song-Oakwood by Angus/Julia Stone

Such a fun tune… Enjoy…

Sneak us there in the middle of the night, oh
Sit up on your roof, have some beers beneath the stars, lover
I can see you there holding my hand, girl
Looking in my eyes, oh, giving me the look, lover
Talking bout the lovers that we had, oh
Bag them bones, let’s forget all about the others
Look so pretty girl, even when you’re high
It’s funny, all the shit we speak when we close our eyes, baby

Lovers soon to be lovers
Lovers soon to be others
Lovers soon to be lovers

We met on the beat beat only ones alive
Left here to be the only ones to live as lovers
Trying to move slow but we’re so liquored up
Rolling with the wind like a dusty old pick up truck

Drinking on the weekend, weekday
Never get a break to say the things I wanna say, lover
Coke binge state that I’m living in, honey
Trying to reach out for a little bit of your money

Lovers soon to be lovers
(Like a shadow in the moonlight)
Lovers soon to be others
Lovers soon to be lovers
(Like a shadow in the moonlight)

This song has been done a few times… I’m rather confident in saying EVERYONE knows Elvis’s version which is frikken GREAT… But here is a much different sounding HB Hotel… sang by a local celebrity.. Mr. Dax Riggs… in my book, his music makes him sound like the he is the King Of The Tortured….

Well, since my baby left me
I found a new place to dwell
It’s down at the end of lonely street
At heartbreak hotelAnd I get so lonely baby
I get so lonely baby
I get so lonely baby, I could dieOh, though it’s always crowded
You still can find some room
For broken hearted lovers
To cry there in their gloomI get so lonely baby
I get so lonely baby
I get so lonely baby, I could dieWell, the bell hop’s tears keep flowing
And the desk clerk’s dressed in black
They been so long on lonely street
They’ll never look backI’ve been so lonely baby
I’ve been so lonely baby
I’ve been so lonely baby, I could dieSo if your baby leaves you
You got a tale to tell
Just take a walk down lonely street
To heartbreak hotelI get so lonely baby
I get so lonely baby
I get so lonely baby, I could dieI could die

This one might be familiar to some of you Breaking Bad Fans. “My darkness shining…”🖤

TruthThe truth is that I never shook my shadow
And every day it’s trying to trick me into doing battle
Calling out “faker” only get me rattled
Want to pull me back behind the fence with the cattle
Building your lenses
Digging your trenches
Put me on the front line
Leave me with a dumb mind
With no defenses
But your defenseless
If you can’t stand to feel the pain then you are senselessSince this
I’ve grown up some
Different kind of fighter
And when the darkness come let it inside you
Your darkness is shining
My darkness is shining
Have faith in myself
TruthI’ve seen a million numbered doors on the horizon
Now which is the future you choosin’ before you gone dying?
I’ll tell you ’bout a secret I’ve been undermining
Every little lie in this world come from dividing
Say you’re my lover, say you’re my homie
Tilt my chin back, slit my throat, take a bath in my blood, get to know me
All out of my secrets
All my enemies are turning into my teachers
Because, lights blinding, no way dividing what’s yours or mine when everything’s shining
You darkness is shining, my darkness is shining
Have faith in ourselves
TruthYes, I’m only loving, only trying to only love
That’s what I’m trying to do is only loving
Yes, I’m only loving, trying only loving, I swear to God
I’m only trying to do the loving
Yes, I’m only lonely, I’ve been missing all my feeling
Only loving, only loving
You say it ain’t loving ain’t loving my loving my loving
But I’m only loving, swear only loving, swear to God I’m only loving
Trying only loving, only loving, only loving, only loving, only loving
Yes, I’m only loving, swear only loving, swear to God I’m only loving, only loving
See, I’m only loving, loving, loving, loving, loving my love
But I’m only loving, loving, loving, loving the truth Truth

. I am always so encouraged and moved by music that can still sound romantic and authentic… from baroque to hipster… if it sounds like love… I probably love it… whether it’s loving yourself, misery, another person, rain… love is love… 🥰

What’s the point of fame if it’s been abused?
What’s a kid like me even got to lose?
Here I am on your bed again
It’s too big for the room it’s in.Watch your face and laugh just a little bit,
Everybody knows that you’re good at it,
But nothin’ hurts like an answer phone
Drinkin’ some, wakin’ up alone.Maybe if i try just a little more,
I can take myself from this dirty floor
And walk through buildings of elegance
Just like you are intelegentBut still i fall from grace with this microphone
How’d you fing yourself if you never roam?But, Certainly, I’m indebted baby,
Certainly, certainly, yeah.I know my place
But it don’t know meI know my place
But it don’t know meNo one wants to hear that you’re breakin’ up,
It wasn’t long ago we said ‘start me up’
Now all your dreamin’ will have to wait
While you discern, you’ll anticipatePlay your 45 with this late at night
Open all the windows, turn out the light
Mysterious creatures will fill the room
A midnight show just put on for you.But still i fall from grace with this microphone
How’d you find yourself if you never roam?Certainly, I’m indebted baby,
Certainly, certainly, yeah.I know my place
But it don’t know meI know my place
But it don’t know meCold fame in my brain, but
It’s okay cuz i know it’s the best for me
