I play music pretty much all day, until dinner. Then I turn on the tv for a couple hours. But all day while I’m writing and working in the house and driving in the car, I’m playing music. I have a real soft spot for Van Morrison, and for Beth Hart. Tonight, Beth Hart’s songs “Hold Me Through the Night” and “Tell Her You Belong To Me.” are echoing in my head, so I thought I’d put up this video of “Hold me Through the Night.” Hope you enjoy it.
When I went to Florida I stayed for a couple of nights with a friend from high school who lives in the town I’m moving to. Turns out she’s been singing the blues at local places around there for over a year. One of her favorite female blues singers is Beth Hart. I have to sheepishly admit I did not know her. My friend put on a few youtube videos of her, one was with Jeff Beck at the Kennedy Center honoring Buddy Guy. I realized I had seen it, live, because it was way tooo fabulous not to burn a spot into your psyche.
Needless to say, I’m looking forward, really forward, to going with my friend to see her sing.
Anyway after she played the Hart-Beck Kennedy Center video, she “introduced” me to Joe Bonamassa, except when I heard him, I remembered that Scott had already introduced me to him, and I loved him. One of those moments where we weren’t having sex, lol. Listening to and discussing music. With our clothes on! (Ok sometimes we were naked, but not having sex, lol. Just sayin’ it wasn’t what some people wanted to believe it was!) OMG, and we did that with books too! Anyway, my friend played the video below, and all I can think when I hear it, is damn…that was me last fall. October 3. And damn, I want to love someone else like that. Except, I don’t want to ever have to watch him walk away again.
Listen to it…I bet you’ll feel the same.
