IN SPRING, IT'S MATTERS OF THE HEART PT.1

Keeping it honest, this is an old show that for some reason I never put out for listening.
I remember that they wanted me to talk more back in those days, which didn't bother me as long as I could pick any songs I wanted to play without interference.
As it still is!
What I am titling this show is just a variation of the quote, "In the Spring a young man's fancy lightly turns to thoughts of love".
Didn't seem fair to leave out the fancy of young women, lol!
It is from the poem Locksley Hall by Alfred Lord Tennyson, and I will read, not the whole thing thankfully, but that portion I am referencing.
Never one to waste what I consider a good idea, these are songs I didn't play on the previous Valentine's Day- the first time I played all "Heart" songs!
These are not the scrubs, not the ones that weren't good enough.
I just couldn't fit them all in for Valentines.
I have some nice quotes in here about the Loving Heart, and of course Music I hope you will enjoy.

That's about Spring, cause it has BIRDS!

 The Beach Boys/Four Freshman songs were definitely wicked cool. Depressing, but wicked cool.

Kinda dug the Rondstadt song even though it started off a bit strange. Like free form jazzy bop stuff.

Mostly good stuff here (still can't get into Elvis) and I guess I shouldn't be mentioning Kansas anymore since that boat has sailed!

Ah yes, quotes regarding the heart.  My favorite: 

 

"Beans, Beans, good for the heart/beans, beans, great for the heart!"

-somebody on SNL

 

Back to the show, the opener was pretty good.  I'm just not a big Yes fan.  I do have 90215 or whatever the title is, so it's probably gonna be AOTW one day.  Also, not a big Linda Ronstadt fan.

 

But I dig Elvis.  I still say he has the best, most soothing voice ever, even in the history of the whole wide world.  I also like Randy Meisner, so that was a nice pick.  But not the Golden Pell.

 

I'm giving the GP to The Beach Boys and The Four Freshman.  Very nice track.  I like the BB's version just slightly over the other, but really only because I know their voices.  However, I had to listen twice, as I missed what you were saying at the beginning of the song, and I didn't realize it had changed from one artist to the next.

Ok, so this is my first time listening to you via iPad. I'm on the road this week and so it's also the first time I'm listening to you in Philadelphia ...


And you lead off with a great track! Yes! Hahahaha...


Poetry, uh.... I did manage to get the one about the empty brain. Call me cultured!


Nice choice on the Meisner tune. So that's the Golden Pell for me. Just a quick thought, when the Eagles reunited it was hoped by many that Randy Meisner would join them as well as Timothy B Schmidt, but they didn't let him come back. Always thought that was a mistake!

Nice show Mike!!
