Musical Interlude~Sunday Night Blues

Yeah well--sometimes it's just like that. These are the strains echoing through the halls and cracking the stones in the walls at Castle Hedgewitch tonight.

She's playin my song:

A little of the old Steely Dan

Lots of Santana I like, but this one fits tonight, cause
there's a monster
under my bed:

Back to our regularly scheduled poetry soon.


  1. Joy,excellent choice of songs. A welcomed respite to the poetry, making the rounds!


  2. Nina needs to quit screwing around with the keys and her isometrics and just start the song already! I have a short attention span. ;-) Rita Coolidge does a nice version of that song, very southern and smooth. It's on her first album, when she was closer to Mad Dogs & Englishmen than to her later easy listening stuff.

    I loved that early Steely Dan stuff. I still have Countdown To Ecstasy, which I bought (again) on cd. I saw them, when they were still a band and not just Fagen and Becker. They did a really nice version of "Show Biz Kids" that night and everybody went nuts.

    I almost posted "The Ballad of The Sad Young Men" from "Moon For The Misbegotten" and sung by Roberta Flack, last night, but I decided against it. God what a pair! Like the button on my jean jacket says, we really need to Cheer The Fuck Up. :-)

  3. awww...put a smile on that face hedge, no time for the blues...all hallows is right around the corner and there are kids to scare, i mean give treats to....smiles....i like me some steely dan...

    and not i am wondering how they fit all those words on shays button...

  4. Ohh Nina. She almost makes ya feel better giving voice to the blues. I hope you can shake the monster out, take him for a walk and kick him into the woods! Then he can populate your All Hallows poetry. Please.

  5. Nina Simone hypnotizes me every damn time.

  6. Thanks all. Glad you enjoyed.

    @FB: Yeah, I need that scrolling as a screensaver. ;-) I like both forms of Steely Dan, though it took me awhile to get used to the more pop/jazz focused one. That second song has some great lines:
    Well I should know by now
    That it's just a spasm
    Like a Sunday in T.J.
    That it's cheap but it's not free
    That I'm not what I used to be
    And that love's not a game for three

    and the last song i like not just for the lyrics, but because the rapsta dude Everlast looks just like my old Canuck flame--you could stand em next to each other and not tell them apart.

    @Brian & Ruth--That's true, halloween is coming and monsters will be all over the place, not just in my head.And I've already broken into the halloween candy and gotten a stiff reprimand from the spouse(who wants it for himself) thanks for cheering me up.
