I had several friends and family members post the above linked video. It’s one of my favorite Grateful Dead songs.
I thought it was just random people singing it, then I saw that Keelin Garcia, Jimmy Buffet and David Crosby were some of the singers. Well worth the watch!
Rapping Dr Seuss
The videos in the above link are great. Who knew Dr Seuss books sounded so good as rapping? These are worth the time it takes to watch.
I came across the above linked article on St Patrick’s Day. I started looking at them and realized that I hadn’t seen The Commitments in years. I tried to find it on Netflix, but it’s not available unless I rent it. I did end up finding the series Derry Girls which is pretty entertaining. I’ll probably get that finished before the social distancing is finished.
Fifty years ago yesterday, according to the above linked article, Sesame Street debuted Rubber Ducky. It’s still a song that everyone seems to know. What would we do without this catchy tune working its way into our brains on occasion? Happy anniversary!
music from your teens
The above linked article talks about why our taste in music kind of sticks to what we were listening to as a teen. It’s hard to really tell why, but it seems to be linked to our social identity. It’s an interesting article, and explains why my musical taste is pretty much stuck in the 80’s.
My friend wanted to go to a concert, and I agreed to go with her. I had a good time, and I took clips of some of the songs. I spent almost 4 hours on my feet, dancing. I met my fitbit step goal, and then surpassed it by the time I got back to my car. I was exhausted the next day, since I am not used to being out so late.
