Yeah, I mentioned it at the other site a few years back. Wouldn't be able to post it because it's full of copyrighted songs and would get taken down immediately. I'm already on my 3rd YouTube account because of posting copyrighted stuff. Now I don't post anything because it always  f u c k s  up with my channel subscriptions of what I want to follow.

Eddie Money - Shakin'

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hA1wDgPZCDA

Back in the day, this was one of the featured songs on first my Mix Tape and then later on my Mix CD. The song still kicks major ass and is great for cruising down the Blvd.

Apollonia ftw!



Oh, and Eddie too.

This is one of those strange incidents where there is something about Eddie Money I never bought into. I do think it's his voice. I do love Take Me Home Tonight but I believe it's mostly for Ronnie Spector's parts.

Not intending to dis on one of your fav. I do understand his popularity. He was pretty damn big in the day.

No man, you mean Bob Dylan. He's the one you hate.

John Lee Hooker feat. Sanatana - Chill Out

Honestly I'm not a fan of John Lee Hooker. But when I heard Santana infused in this song, it gained my attention.

Related note...

I found this piece rather funny and on the mark...
Faith talking through it adds quite a bit.


Really

Quote
(CBS News) Contributor Faith Salie is really worked up about a certain use of the word "Really" . . . I mean, REALLY! . . . . :

Recently, New York Times critic Neil Genzlinger expressed that he really has an issue with "Really?" As in, Really?

Then comedian Jerry Seinfeld, an early adopter of the "Really?" wrote a public defense of the "R word," predictably, mordantly summing up his response to the Times with . . . "Really."

In case you don't watch much TV or spend time with anyone under 40, "Really?" is pop culture's pithiest way to deliver a withering put-down. In today's abbreviated world of texting and 140-character tweets, this adverb says it all.

But adverbs aren't meant to say it all! Adverbs, we know, are meant to modify a verb, an adjective, or another adverb. They help us understand things more clearly, more vividly, more . . . morely.

Really!

The problem with "Really?" is that when it stands alone, it's an unimaginative riposte.

What if earlier generations had leaned on this laconic ironic crutch? Remember the famous exchange in which Bessie Braddock said to Winston Churchill, "Sir, you are drunk," to which he replied, "Madam, you are ugly. But in the morning, I shall be sober"?

If Churchill had merely replied, "Really?" the world would have lost one of the great drunken comebacks of all time.

We can only hope that "Really?" is having its moment because "actually" is taking a breather. For the past decade, you've probably heard the adverb "actually" in virtually every other sentence.

Like, you're talking to a friend who asks what you're doing later. "Um, actually, I'm going to the market." In which case "actually" suggests that your going food shopping is surprising, or true - that either your personal assistant always fetches your groceries, or that everything you've said before now is a lie.

Kids these days use "actually" so much that it literally kills me.

Did you catch that last adverb?! Literally, did you catch it? Did it come flying out of my mouth through your screen and into your hands? I'm not actually perishing, but I do feel like I die a little every time someone uses "literally" to mean "really." The real kind of really, not the "Really?" kind of really.

If you are really cold, for example, you must put on a hat and gloves; if you say you are literally freezing to death, you must use your frostbitten hands to dial 911 and to scrawl your last wishes in the snow that envelops you.

If I may succinctly, finally, really sum this up, I feel like a total fuddyduddy, because I've just used the phrase "kids these days" like some kind of schoolmarm who wants those hooligans off my grammatical lawn. But it's not the kids' fault. They just didn't get to learn adverbs in the old-fashioned, groovy way that aged folks of my generation did: "Schoolhouse Rock."

Going new school with this. A friend of mine who is deeply into music introduced this to me. I miss things sometimes, but this just kicks ass. Where was I when this came out.

I thought maybe this would be a cover song of Poison's monster hit song.

This is such an incredible song. Julie's voice is AMAZING! I discovered her and the this song in particular a couple of years ago. I can't remember exactly how I stumbled onto the song though. I don't know anything about the singer other than what I googled her and that she is very religious and that she puts out christian music. That's the extent of my knowledge of her music career. As for the song, I just love the way it keeps building and building and the release at the bridge of the song. Wow.
