For some levity this morning, we are going to have a listen to this Russian group called Singing Underwear. The tunes are nothing to write home about, but the girls in the band do lighten the mood with some enticing eye-candy:
Even though the theme was depressing, I thought we'd end the day with a song that has a happy beat, if not a happy message. Once again here's Zac Brown with As She's Walking Away.
Happy Saturday BLRag music fans! Schwabman here filling in for Zoyclem who's taking this weekend to furiously look for receipts and deductions as he prepares his taxes. After listening to Zoyclem's selections last week, I thought of times that I've had my heart broken or was too dumb to pick up on the signals that were being sent. My first selection of the day is from the Netherlands album.. Here's the late Dan Fogelberg..Promises Made.
Time is cruel, but then so is life. She was trapped unloved in a marriage with no chance of escape. Me? I had despaired of ever finding her in the waking world and began to seek death instead. Our time together was brief, but I like to think it healed our wounded spirits just enough to carry on until the book on this life closes. I doubt we will ever see each other again.
Yet somewhere, in another time and place we will find each other...for the two of us already share those memories, quiet and bittersweet.
One day, I did find her---my sweet beautiful soul. We went to church together on a Sunday, both of us struggling to stay afloat in a flood of unfulfilled dreams and missed chances. But then, when it seemed that all hope had fled, she turned and smiled at me and recollection came.
