Another look at some of the destruction caused by Hurricane Sandy here in New York City, but the American Flags kept flying in certain neighborhoods.
I got to thinking of other Hurricanes, and the resulting Floods, etc.
So I thought I'd play a couple of songs for them- one over a century ago, the other much more recent.
And for some reason, I chose to take them from the vinyl LP's...listen closely, you can tell!
Although there are many musical answers to this, what might be your first thought if you found yourself surrounded by a Hurricane?
You can hear my pick.
One peculiar thing that occured too late for me to mention on the show, was that afterwards as I was putting the music away I had a CSI moment!
I noticed I had played two consecutive songs from albums named Let It Bleed and Blood On The Tracks.
I should have worn rubber gloves, lol!
We made it through the Hurricane, with many moments of caring and kindness to others.
More reasons to be proud of that tough, resilient New York tradition.
Enjoy the Music!
