My American Prayer

Seen here and here.

When you get to the top of the mountain, will you tell me what you see?
When you get to the top of the mountain…remember me.

Summertime blues…

It’s the middle of summer and it’s hot. Gas is a million dollars/gallon. Economy…ugh. We still can’t agree on race in this country – go figure.

I got nothing. Except maybe this.

Everybody dance.

Then dance some more.

Oooh, a tag.

The guidelines:

List seven songs you are into right now. No matter what the genre, whether they have words, or even if they’re not any good, but they must be songs you’re really enjoying now, shaping your spring summer. Post these instructions in your blog along with your seven songs. Then tag seven other people to see what they’re listening to.

This is corny and obvious, but I love it. When the radio starts playing this one (yeah, I still listen to the radio) summer is here. And remember that Will Smith? With the fade?

Will Smith and DJ Jazzy Jeff – Summertime

Apparently, there’s something about girls and guitars (and fiddles, etc.) that I really like. Checking my itunes revealed I’ve been playing the mess out of these three….

Indigo Girls – Closer to Fine

Tracy Chapman – Baby Can I Hold You

Dixie Chicks – Sin Wagon

And guys with guitars… who sing about cooking rice in the microwave and being long in the tooth…

Travis Tritt

This is just… well…

Me’Shell Ndegeocello – Dreadlocks

Men Without Hats – Safety Dance

Ah, the 80’s. Really, what better motto?

We can dance if we want to… we can leave your friends behind….cuz your friends don’t dance and if they don’t dance then they ain’t no friends of mine.

People, there are jesters and dancing chickens in this video. So awesome….

As the previous will attest, I like dance themed songs/videos. Summer in the city….taking it back real old school — this is one of my FAVORITE scenes in one of my FAVORITE movies. Come on… the twist… the frug… the freaking Watusi!!!! Please, people, control yourselves.

Yep, summer’s really all about dancing, peeps.

Okay, that was fun. Come on, everybody play…. I’m not tagging specifically – anyone who’s game – c’mon.
