Monday’s #MorningMusic Wrap-Up – April 13 – 19, 2015

April 13th

I’ve seen it all go down
The game of love was all rained out

from “To Be With You” by Mr. Big

Games may get rained out, but the season can last a lifetime.  As long as you don’t hang up your cleats, there’s always the chance you’ll win the next game.


April 14th

So take the photographs, and still frames in your mind
Hang it on a shelf in good health and good time

from “Good Riddance (Time of Your Life)” by Green Day

It’s too easy to focus on the struggles in our lives.  Make sure you have a little lock box inside where you keep your “happy times” and pop that sucker open now and then and remember the good times.


April 15th

Hey you, give up the ghost that’s haunting you now
Shout it out, don’t let it stay inside and eat you alive

from “Dance Little Sister” by Terrence Trent D’Arby (former stage name for Sananda Maitreya

A great, rocking dance beat combined with Sananda’s powerful vocals on smart, message-driven lyrics worked incredibly well on this song about staying positive and not letting life beat you down.  Introducing the Hard Line by Terrence Trent D’Arby is a fantastic album.


April 16th

Shot by an arrow of cupid
Through the string of a G-clef
My dear, I claim you’re def

from “Eye Know” by De La Soul

An offbeat love song with clever lyrics.


April 17th

Heartless pictures on TV
Change that channel
That could have been me I said

from “White Light” by George Michael

George Michael’s announcement via song that he wasn’t done…with life or music.  This was good news for those fans (like me) who’d heard the news stories of him being found slumped behind the wheel of his car, among others.  I love his music so I truly hope he’s able to stay on the winning side in the battle with his demons.
