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. 🥰

This one might not be for some of my pals on here… But if you are ever on a daytime rendezvous in Cajun Country and have your windows down… and you are maybe searching for a way to create new nerve endings… Keep your boundaries but maybe make one small part of them expandable… They are still there, chill the fuck out. Love you.. XOXO MADAMCHRYZL

Well, he just drove off, sometimes life’s okay
I ran my mouth off a bit too much, oh, what did I say?
Well, you just laughed it off and it was all okayAnd we’ll all float on, okay
And we’ll all float on, okay
And we’ll all float on, okay
And we’ll all float on anyway, wellA fake Jamaican took every last dime with that scam
It was worth it just to learn some sleight of hand
Bad news comes, don’t you worry even when it lands
Good news will work its way to all them plans
We both got fired on exactly the same day
Well, we’ll float on, good news is on the wayAnd we’ll all float on, okay
And we’ll all float on, okay

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?

I had the pleasure of seeing this terrific band about 3 years ago… I did so against all recommendations. Even though I was having LED light/stress induced seizures around that time, I decided to go. I did end up having a very small episode, towards the end of the concert; but with my best friend/husband at my side, it was all worth it. Hope you like it. -Madamchryzl

Picking up the pieces of the world I know
With one in the fire and one in the snow
It’s a comeback story of a lifetime
The comeback story of a lifetimeI’ve been told believing everything is all right
I break with the day and I bend with the night
It’s a comeback story of a lifetime
The comeback story of a lifetimeI’ll walk a mile in your shoes
And now I’m a mile away
And I’ve got your shoesThe bright of the lights they’re burning me out
Everyone says it’s a lovely sound
I don’t know where they are leading me
Trying my best hoping that you’ll seeI’ll walk a mile in your shoes
And now I’m a mile away
And I’ve got your…I’ll walk a mile in your shoes
And now I’m a mile away
And I’ve got your shoesYou’ll rue the day when you understand
I did my best to be an honest man
Race isn’t over until the finish line
It’s a comeback story of a lifetimeI’ll walk a mile in your shoes
And now I’m a mile away
And I’ve got your shoes Now I’m a mile away
And I’ve got your shoes Now I’m a mile away…

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

Wednesday Song-Telephone Line

By Electric Light Orchestra

Hello, how are you?
Have you been alright
Through all those lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely nights?
That’s what I’d say, I’d tell you everything
If you’d pick up that telephone
Yeah, yeah, yeah Hey, how’re you feelin’?
Are you still the same?
Don’t you realize the things we did, we did, were all for real?
Not a dream
I just can’t believe they’ve all faded out of view
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Ooh-ooh-ooh

I look into the sky
(The love you need ain’t gonna see you through)
And I wonder why
(The little things you planned ain’t coming true)Oh, oh, telephone line, give me some time
I’m living in twilight
Oh, oh, telephone line, give me some time
I’m living in twilight

Okay, so no one’s answering
Well, can’t you just let it ring a little longer, longer, longer
Oh, I’ll just sit tight
In shadows of the night
Let it ring forevermore, oh-woh
Yeah, yeah, yeahI look into the sky
(The love you need ain’t gonna see you through)
And I wonder why
(The little things you planned ain’t coming true)Oh, oh, telephone line, give me some time
I’m living in twilight
Oh, oh, telephone line, give me some time
I’m living in twilight
Oh, oh, telephone line, give me some time
I’m living in twilight
Oh, oh, telephone line, give me some time
I’m living in twilight

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

Sunday Song… Jose Gonzalez – Heartbeats

🖤 “And you, you knew….” 🖤 Enjoy…

One night to be confused
One night to speed up truth
We had a promise, babe
Four hands and then away

Both under influence
We had divine sense
To know what to say
Mind is a razor blade

To call for hands of above
To lean on
Wouldn’t be good enough
For me, no

One night of magic rush
The start a simple touch
One night to push and scream
And then relief

Ten days of perfect hues
The colors red and blue
We had a promise, babe
We were in love

To call for hands of above
To lean on
Wouldn’t be good enough
For me, no
To call for hands of above
To lean on
Wouldn’t be good enough

And you
You knew the hand of the devil
And you
Kept us awake with wolves teeth
Sharing different heartbeats
In one night

To call for hands of above
To lean on
Wouldn’t be good enough
For me, no
To call for hands of above
To lean on
Wouldn’t be good enough

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

(I have always been quite fond of these guys… i think “bc I like vampire music” is what I’m told. Lol)

.. I wish I could live free
I hope it’s not beyond me
Settling down, it takes time
One day we’ll live together
And life will be better
I have it here, yeah, in my mind
Baby, you know someday you’ll slow
And baby, my heart’s been breaking.

I gave a lot to you
I take a lot from you too
You slave a lot for me
Guess you could say I gave you my edge

I can’t pretend I need to defend some part of me from you
I know I’ve spent some time on lying

I can’t pretend I don’t need to defend some part of me from you
I know I’ve spent some time on lying

You’re looking alright tonight
I think we should go

You’re looking alright tonight
I think we should go

I DON’T THINK I’LL EVER GET OVER YOU BY COLLIN HAYES

Song from the 2nd to best Soundtrack that ever existed… Garden State… Feel free to reply with similar songs… xoxo

 I drink good coffee every morning
It comes from a place that’s far away
And when I’m done I feel like talking
Without you here there is less to say

… Don’t want you thinking I’m unhappy
What is closer to the truth
Is that if I lived till I was a hundred and two
I just don’t think I’ll ever get over you

… I’m no longer moved to drink strong whiskey
I shook the hand of time and I knew
that if I lived till I could no longer climb my stairs
I just don’t think I’ll ever get over you

… Your face it dances and it haunts me
your laughter is still ringing in my ears
I still find pieces of your presence here
even after all these years

… I don’t want you thinking that i don’t get asked to dinner
cause I’m here to say that I sometimes do
and even though I may seem to feel a touch of love
I just don’t think I’ll ever get over you

… if I live till I was a hundred and two
I just don’t think I’ll ever get over you

I’ve always been a “Maybe” sort of person… so in spirit of that… I have my FAVORITE Janis Joplin song… There are so many good ones to choose from… But today this one is my favorite. I can never NOT get chills every single time I hear it. ENJOY.

MAYBE BY JANIS JOPLIN

Maybe…
Oh, if I could pray, and I try, dear,
You might come back home, home to me.

Maybe
Whoa, if I could ever hold your little hand
Ooh, you might understand.
Maybe, maybe, maybe, maybe… yeah

Maybe, maybe, maybe, maybe, maybe, dear,
I guess I might have done something wrong,
Honey, I’d be glad to admit it
Ooh, come on home to me!
Honey, maybe, maybe, maybe, maybe… yeah

Well, I know that it just doesn’t ever seem to matter, babe,
Ooh, honey, when I go out or what I’m trying to do,
Can’t you see I’m still left here
And I’m all alone in needing you

Please, please, please, please,
Oh, won’t you reconsider, babe,
Now come on, I said come back,
Won’t you come back to me!

Maybe, dear, oh maybe, maybe, maybe,
Let me help you show me how.
Honey, maybe, maybe, maybe, maybe,
Maybe, maybe, maybe, yeah,
Maybe, maybe, maybe, yeah.
Ooh!

Stop and believeBut for you

Why I should never make a change

Why I should never make a change
And baby if you hold me
Then all of this will go away

Give me one good reason
Why I should never make a change

If you take my handBut, for you
