KillgoreTrout On June - 14 - 2014

Welcome Planet folks to yet another Weekend Music Thread. I offer a hardy and warm welcome to any newcomers that may find their way here this weekend. I suspect, that if you’re here, you must be music lovers, so sit back and enjoy the picks of others, or post your favorite picks yourself.

With this crazy Spring we’re having, there has been lots of rain and lots of sunshine. As life itself often goes, there’s lots of sunny times and lots of rainy days.
My wish is that no matter the weather, we can have joy and success in our lives. Come rain or come shine, we will continue to move ahead and remain decent, caring folks. So pick your favorites and have some fun doing so, or just sit back and enjoy, and don’t forget to smile while you’re at it! 😉

Once a wander, working vagabond, fellow traveler on this 3rd stone from the sun. Hurtling through space and time. Lover of books (especially the classics), all kinds of books from novels, poetry, essay collections, fiction and nonfiction and a big Kurt Vonnegut fan. I am a secular humanist and technically an atheist.....Taoist.

    Just had to drop two more to make the comment count reach 300, so I’m dropping one of my favorite Dutch Bands from the 70s:

    As some of you may have guessed, I live for music…it’s so much of my being, of my soul, and has been for over half a century.

    Music can still move me to tears, especially live performances. In any case, some music just cries out to my soul. I have two versions of this piece, one for the beauty of a Carlos Santana (who I had the honor of having a half-hour conversation with at a restaurant here in Chicago while he was waiting for the rest of his party) arrangement, the other for a son honoring his father’s musical legacy:

    I know it’s not a Hot August Night, but it worked for me today:

    I gave this song to my Mom and Dad a few years after I got back from Vietnam.

    It makes my eyes water.

    For the non-secular crowd out there:

    What a glorious Sunday here in Chicago:
