Today's Song: Every Time Katie

A funky, joyful noise. I truly enjoy the music that David Wax Museum makes. This song takes me back to the first time I heard Simon and Garfunkel's Cecilia.

Five Songs for Today, March 24, 2020

1, Van Morrison - Into the Mystic. Maybe my favorite Van Morrison song. There may be one sentimental runner up that I'll save for a future list. Talk about "bringing the mood."

2. Lucinda Williams - Drunken Angel. Once upon a time, my dream job was to be a touring guitar tuner for Lucinda Williams. If only I knew how to tune a guitar. Great performance.

3. First Aid Kit - My Silver Lining. I never get tired of hearing this song. Always gives me a jolt of bright energy.

4. ROOKIE - Sunglasses. Even though it's not summer yet, I've found my summer song.

5. Warren Zevon - Carmelita. My son sent me the Spotify link to this song last week. I can't stop listening. It's also been my gateway back into this legendary songwriter and his music. Wonder what Warren would make of these times.

30 Days of Dylan, Day 2: Leopard-Skin Pill-Box Hat

"Well, you must tell me, baby / How your head feels under somethin’ like that / Under your brand new leopard-skin pill-box hat" Lyrics. From Blonde on Blonde. I do believe I could listen to this song on repeat all day long. Love the dueling guitars and Bob's snarling, smiling vocals.

Day One: Pretty Saro
Click to listen on Spotify.
"Pretty Saro" is an English folk ballad from the 1700s. The song has been recorded by dozens of artists, including six times by Bob Dylan. But none of his versions were released until the song appeared on the Bootleg Series, Vol. 10, Another Self Portrait. This is the first of 30 Dylan songs from my April playlist. Want to skip ahead? See the full list now.

30 Days of Dylan: Change in the Weather

Welcome to April. It doesn't feel like spring in northern Illinios yet, but it doesn't feel like winter either. We're gaining daylight and warmth, even if it's a little bit at a time.

This change of seasons brings me back to some of my favorite Bob Dylan music. Looking forward to sharing these songs with you this month.
