It’s The End of the Decade as We Know it And I Feel Fine

Note – I’m working on doing something in the next couple of months that will – should it happen – be of some interest to readers. It involves a visit somewhere. I’m going to drop well, not hints, but teasers over the next month or so. Should be interesting if it all works out.

For the New Year, I thought I’d just take it easy and post a couple of New Year’s songs that are not “Auld Lang Syne.” What better song to start with than U2’s “New Year’s Day” which has nothing to do with that as such and everything to do with the Polish Solidarity movement:

All is quiet on New Year’s Day
A world in white gets underway
I want to be with you
Be with you, night and day
Nothing changes on New Year’s Day
On New Year’s Day

Let us get a little more sensual here with Diana Krall, aka Mrs. Elvis Costello. (Or is he Mr. Diana Krall?)

When the bells all ring and the horns all blow
And the couples we know are fondly kissing
Will I be with you or will I be among the missing?

Maybe it’s much too early in the game
Ah, but I thought I’d ask you just the same
What are you doing New Year’s, New Year’s Eve?

And lastly, what would New Year’s Eve be without Otis Redding and Carla Thomas? Carla is, of course, the daughter of the late R&B guy Rufus Thomas who wrote “Walking the Dog.”

For the New Year, I truly hope that you and yours Keep on Rockin’ in the free (and not-so-free) world.

        1. I’m going to see Brit Floyd again in the spring. I went to see Steely Dan with a guy I work with and told him about them. Looks like you and I have switched roles. Maybe now I am the new King of all tribute bands while you go see obscure bands nobody ever heard of from the Sixties! 🤣😋
