I have to confess that I have waited patiently for an opportunity to share this next video song with you. I stumbled upon it by accident over a year ago while reading a blog.

Wild Heart, Stevie Nicks. But wait! There’s more! Wonderful comments, so I hope you enjoy reading them. I will look for the narrative/essay that originally inspired this link.


Stevie Nicks — this is an old “basement tapes” sort of clip. Behold how passionate this young woman is. You can tell that she HAS TO SING. people have said that a writer has to write. Has to.


Back in the day, I had too many distractions (real life can get in the way) to notice who was who in music. I missed a whole lot, that’s for sure.


I want you forum friends to look at how passionate she was. The verve. The band is keying up, makeup is being applied to Stevie back stage by a back-up singer friend (read comments), and she just cannot help herself, makeup be damned, from bursting forth. She feels this. I cannot help singing along and swaying to it. Bookmark or memorize it. I am smitten with her heartfelt passion. I want all of you to feel it too. Honest passion.

The song has close to 104 beats per minute, and 100–120 chest compressions per minute are recommended by the British Heart Foundation and endorsed by the Resuscitation Council (UK). A study on medical professionals found that the quality of CPR is better when thinking about "Stayin' Alive".

Saw these guys at the Texas State Fair concert back in the 80's. I remember they were a lot of fun. They came to fame for a while, They did the Back in Time song used in Back to the Future movie. I've been waiting to post one of their songs.

Huey Lewis and the News

Heart of Rock and Roll

https://youtu.be/M7JVlpm0eRs

They are a bit "campy", no serious stuff but kind of fun to listen to.

So much wonderful music. (“Wild Thing, you make my heart sing”). Thanks everyone.

Lurker, “Stairway To Heaven” is a classic.

Here are the lyrics I found:


There's a lady who's sure all that glitters is gold
And she's buying a stairway to heaven
When she gets there she knows, if the stores are all closed
With a word she can get what she came for
Ooh, ooh, and she's buying a stairway to heaven

There's a sign on the wall, but she wants to be sure
'Cause you know sometimes words have two meanings
In a tree by the brook, there's a songbird who sings
Sometimes all of our thoughts are misgiven

Ooh, it makes me wonder
Ooh, it makes me wonder

There's a feeling I get when I look to the west
And my spirit is crying for leaving
In my thoughts I have seen rings of smoke through the trees
And the voices of those who stand looking

Ooh, it makes me wonder
Ooh, it really makes me wonder

And it's whispered that soon, if we all call the tune
Then the piper will lead us to reason
And a new day will dawn for those who stand long
And the forests will echo with laughter

If there's a bustle in your hedgerow, don't be alarmed now
It's just a spring clean for the May queen
Yes, there are two paths you can go by, but in the long run
There's still time to change the road you're on
And it makes me wonder

Your head is humming and it won't go, in case you don't know
The piper's calling you to join him
Dear lady, can you hear the wind blow, and did you know
Your stairway lies on the whispering wind?

And as we wind on down the road
Our shadows taller than our soul
There walks a lady we all know
Who shines white light and wants to show
How everything still turns to gold
And if you listen very hard
The tune will come to you at last
When all are one and one is all
To be a rock and not to roll
And she's buying a stairway to heaven

Yes, it was one of the first songs I learned how to play, back in the 70's.

12 years ago this month, I lost a horse who saved me, in all the ways a person can be saved. (Credit- Rose in Titanic movie). He had a perfect heart on his shoulder and so, though we didn't know his real birthday, we gave him Valentine's Day. Anyway, this is for him:

After his death in 1997, Michael Hutchence's coffin was carried out of St Andrews Cathedral by the remaining members of INXS and younger brother Rhett as "Never Tear Us Apart" was played in the background.

I play the guitar, piano, and cornet. Yes I do, but I don't want to post them as me. :^) I might have already posted some. (not in this thread)

Edit: I really don't play much anymore.

Nancy-in-venice— I have always loved “Heart Like A Wheel” by the McGarrigle Sisters. One of them was married to Loudan Wainwright. Now their children perform.
