Monday’s #MorningMusic Wrap-Up – July 27 – August 2, 2015

July 27th

Baby as our lives unfold
There’s no telling where we’ll go
But as far as I can see, it’ll be you and me

from “Forever Road” by Darius Rucker

Me and my baby against the world.

July 28th

Everybody needs a little place they can hide
Somewhere to call their own
Don’t let nobody inside

from “Shelter Me” by Cinderella

Cinderella transcends “hair band”, especially on this song.  It’s got it all, a great beat, rockin’ bluesy guitars, Tom’s raspy voice, sax solos, and even a Little Richard in the video.  The message in this song is spot on, as well…we all need a little shelter.

July 29th

It ain’t pretty
After the show
It ain’t pretty when the pretty leaves you
With no place to go

from “Pretty Vegas” by INXS

This song fits so perfectly this week since a large group of folks from my high school descended on Vegas this weekend for a reunion…and also because INXS was hugely popular when we were in high school.

July 30th

And when my mind is free
You know a melody can move me
And when I’m feelin’ blue
The guitar’s comin’ through to soothe me

from “Drift Away” by Uncle Kracker

Such a great remake.  I love the way Uncle Kracker brought Dobie Gray in to sing rather than simply covering the song.  Very cool.  I completely relate to these lines.  Good music, good lyrics…they can take you away, refresh you, and bring you back ready to face the day.


July 31st

Captain America’s been torn apart
Now he’s a court jester with a broken heart

from “Paradise City” by Guns ‘N Roses

Amazing that this song released in 1988 and America seems to be worse off now than it was back then.  Were GNR a bit prophetic?  America certainly seems to have more internal, civil strife.  Has America become a joke on the global stage?
