ROCKOLLECTIONS: HARVEST MOON BALL PT.4 END

Going into this final stretch of the Harvest Moon Ball, it occurred to me that we had done a lot of Dancing, but hadn't paid any attention to those who Won't, Can't, or just plain Don't Want To Dance!

So that calls for a musical acknowledgement of the NON-Dancers!

Plus, and this happens occasionally, I will have TWO endings.

Ending A is satisfactory and makes perfect sense.

Ending B, well I couldn't abandon that…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: HARVEST MOON BALL PT.3

A Rocking start to this chapter of our Harvest Moon Ball.

And the most obvious, anticipated song will finally be played this time out.

Suffice it to say I have Harvested some genuinely good Music that I would like to share with you.

I really like the way this Part Three turned out.

Hope you feel the same way!

ROCKOLLECTIONS: HARVEST MOON BALL PT.2

Opening up this second chapter for our Harvest Moon Ball, a song that has been interpreted by very many artists and in very many ways.

I will play you the original version, a Rocker from 1958.

Then I will play one of those interpretations- as the song is turned from a Rocker into a sultry Song Of Seduction, a remarkable transition.

That will open a set of what I'll call Romantic Seductive Dancing.

Oh by the way, we…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: HARVEST MOON BALL PT.1

This is going to be fun, a Harvest Moon Ball!

The Harvest Moon appears in September, and will in a few days.

And it will be a Super Moon, a Blood Moon, complete with a Lunar Eclipse.

Before the invention of electric lights, for generations farmers knew that full moon as the Harvest Moon because it provided extra light after sunset enabling them to continue their harvesting.

All this is reason enough for…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: END OF SUMMER CRUISE PT.2

Alright, we need Sailors.

That is where I am going in this one.

And when I say Sailor, who is the first one you think of?

A good set about Sailors, and since we had the Wind, I lengthened it even more.

Then a change of pace to an entirely different kind of Seagoing Vessel, with a Button-Down Mind, then the World’s Greatest Group!

Let’s enjoy the salty air against our faces and sail on.

One more thing...don’t…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: END OF SUMMER CRUISE PT.1

I thought I would try something different here, for this last full week of the season- an End Of Summer Cruise, using Music as our proxy means of travel.

Whether the Cruise is on a lake, a river or the ocean- I got you covered.

Although if it is on an ocean, we might be lucky enough for some Whale-Watching!

If you are tight for money and can’t afford a Cruise, or if you don’t have a Boat of your own, well, we can BUILD our…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: POST-LABOR DAY PT.2 END

Let's talk about that fine line between people who do nothing at their Jobs and those of us who avail ourselves of the Time-Honored Tradition of playing the angles at Work!

Something learned over time at all Jobs- how to slack off and skate a little.

Be Lazy when the opportunity presents itself.

We are all guilty, so let's celebrate it in Song, lol!

But there is Pride in what we do at Work, It's Our Job!

And…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: POST-LABOR DAY PT.1

Labor Day has come and gone, but I still have songs to play and things to get off my chest.

Tightly wound Cranky Times call for Cranky Music.

So why not go big with it, take on those 3 overcompensated branches of government!

The Golf Branch, the Do-Nothing Legislative Branch that couldn't agree on what to have for lunch, and the For-Life Judicial Branch that knows better than Merriam-Webster what words…

ROCKOLLECTIONS: PRE-LABOR DAY PT.2

The first song here goofs on the Easiest Work I could ever do.

And that made me think of some Hard Jobs- Jobs Nobody Wants To Do, The Dirty Work!

I think laying track for the Railroad qualifies as Hard Work.

So also songs about that, including a genuine Masterpiece.

I invite you to Hammer and Get Hammered with me for Pre-Labor Day, lol!…
