I have absolutely no idea why I keep feeling a compulsion to share music with you guys every night, and I don’t imagine this will last long. I suspect it is my way of working through the mass of angst that resides somewhere in the core of me at the moment. As I chat with you all via comments, write my posts for the next day, and do other tasks such as research, scanning the news, etc., I am most always listening to something (sometimes I am simply listening to the purrrrrr of a contented kittie in my lap). I cannot write while I listen to anything with lyrics, for I am too easily distracted, so while I am writing, I am usually listening to Beethoven’s Pastorale or other classical selections. But then later, I come upon something and for some reason just feel compelled to share. Bear with me, for I’m sure this phase will pass, but meanwhile, I hope you enjoy at least some of the tunes.
Tonight, I find myself softly singing the Rainbow Connection … as sung by my favourite, Kermit THE Frog! ♫ There is a better version done by the Carpenters, but somehow … sometimes … nothing will do but the Kermit version! (For the record, Willie Nelson even did a version of this, which I have not heard. I love Willie … in some things, like Blue Eyes Cryin’ in the Rain, and Always on my Mind, but the Rainbow Connection??? NO … just no.)
