Lyric Time

I love their Mister Blue Sky
Almost my favorite is Turn to Stone
And how about Telephone Line
I love that ELO

Different Strokin' for Different Folkin'

Boss is out of the office so I decided this was a good day to listen to a mix of The Strokes. In honor of their new album everyone is raving about.
I did a search for Strokes. Figured there would be some repeats, but I can take it. Right after UNDER CONTROL and before WHEN IT STARTED, we got a chance to hear something unexpected, the theme song to DIFFERENT STROKES. Good times.
For those who care about such things, it was written by Alan Thicke in 1978. Do not fear, I will not do 1978 as my year.
When I said good times, I didn't mean the TV show. That was just a coincidence.
If I had only done STROK, I think I would have also heard STROKIN' by Clarence Thomas, THE STROKE by Billy Sqire, and 4-STROKE by the Supersuckers. My iPod rules!

This is a far simpler post than what I had planned

I've tried four times now to put together a post talking about the different phases I've gone through musically, something I've been thinking about with this current theme.

But I've hated what I wrote every time and so instead of forcing something that will make me feel worse about myself than I usually do anyway I'll just get to what was going to be the culmination of those thoughts that I can't get right at the moment.

I've been fascinated this week with a website called youarelisteningtolosangeles.com . That sentence might peak your interest until you realize that what Pat is fascinated by right now isn't quite in sync with what the majority of our fine music club is. It is a blend of two different streams playing simultaneously: one stream random ambient tracks and the other a live feed of LAPD radio traffic.

I find it incredibly moody, chill, sometimes creepy and overall it is fitting my current state of mind. If you feel like something different give it a shot.

And for the record, I've had around five distinct music phases, the post was going to be titled Don't Go Changing To Try And Please Me, and I still don't have a year picked. Maybe someday I'll get it together.

Happy 2 year anniversary music club!!!!

16 themes and 279 songs later and look at us, still going strong! I'm proud of our tenacity and diverse output. Go MC!

Music Club #57(?!) The "using only one line of lyrics, what's your favorite song” Theme

So not to over-think it, because it is still early and all, but are you thinking of the line as a stand alone line or is it within the conte...
