Classic Rock Bottom

ROCKOLLECTIONS: KENTUCKY DERBY PT.1

Well it only took many years, but I finally realized in time to do something about it!
A show that has been bouncing around in my head for all those years, dedicated to the Kentucky Derby.
So there will be much horsing around, and even imbibing in that famous Traditional Beverage.
There are some listeners who think along with me in these Free-Form Radio ventures.
And I am sure they figure there is a Rolling Stones song I HAVE to play.
I am going to throw them and everybody else a surprising curveball with that one, lol!
Something you may never have known about regarding that Classic Song.
Plus I have the chance to play a song I have always loved- exquisite in its open-to-interpretation symbolism- that goes far beyond merely catching a Horse.
And we are only at the Halfway Marker- with a Photo Finish still to come.
You are invited to Saddle Up and join me.

Jon,

You were correct the first time, it is a repeat, lol!

And yes the Derby is always on a Saturday.

You’d be good to consult sometimes, since I don’t know and probably never heard Crazy Horses by the Osmonds or Bad Horsie" by Steve Vai.

Wait, the Osmonds?

I doubt I have EVER played the Osmonds- I am far too hip, lol!

Most people did like the Flying Burritos version, the first released, of Wild Horses.

Depressing? Which?

Was it Dan Fogelberg?

Sorry if I bummed your mood, but thanks for the listen and writing,

Mike

So, I was thinking that this was maybe a repeat since I swear Wild Horses had been mentioned before.

Therefore, I did my due diligence and checked when this year's Derby would be run and it's this Saturday.

Now I don't think it's a repeat, but it actually could be since the Derby is always on a Saturday unless it was postponed before, which, for some reason, I think it was? Probably not. But I'm covering all bases!

Now, for horsey songs, the two that come to mind are "Crazy Horses" by the Osmonds since it's just so batshit crazy ESPECIALLY from the Osmonds. THe other is "Bad Horsie" by Steve Vai.

None of those were played on this part, of course. But the WH version here is as good as the Stones version. It's about the same, but is still different.

Overall, this was a nice show. One of the songs was a bit depressing (and you know which one), but that's ok.

Really. It is!
