I Went...SI--SI--SIRIUS...All The Way Home (again) #45

(a short jaunt)

"Gypsy In Me" - Bonnie Raitt / "Dig In Deep" (2016)
"Hello, goodbye, honey
It's been good and I must be going.
Restless, I guess
When I'm in one place for too long."

Ms. Raitt is the spicy "Queen of Slide," no doubt.  She's been there, done that, and yet Bonnie still brings a healthy dose of pixie dust with her sashay.  Glad to hear this one, 'cause there's just never enough Bonnie to go 'round.  This is her 17th studio album. (NEED)

"I Like To Rock" - April Wine / "Harder ... Faster" (1979)
"Come on, can't you see?
That when we all let go...
we get high on rock 'n' roll."

This was April Wine's eighth studio album.  I once compiled a list of my favorite "feel good" driving songs.  This song was pretty high up on the list. And who doesn't love the homage to The Beatles and The Rolling Stones on the fade-out?   Caught me at just the right time, too.  And after learning of the recent passing of the "other" quiet one...Charlie Watts, well....this song stands as just another reminder of all the rock-n-roll bands Charlie gave a little push.  You will always be the man, Charlie.  R.I.P. (OWN)  

"Think About You" - Ringo Starr / "Liverpool 8" (2008)
"When I'm walking down the streets and I feel it start to rain
I don't run for cover, I look up again and it's blue-
I just have to think about you!!"

Fans will love it.  Whaddygonnado?  Mr. Starkey will forever get a pass.  He's the proud owner of one of those "Get Out Of Jail Free" cards.  I know.  If it wasn't him behind the mic...  But it is!  So just let it go.  We all love let's just enjoy the moments while we can.  "Liverpool 8" is the 15th studio album from the Fab. (NEED)


Good stuff.
