Tripping through the '70s ... when I was a teeny-bopper, my uncle gave me a green, eight-track-tape of the Three Dog Night, One is the Loneliest Number.

If you remember the '70s and what an eight-track-tape is, you'll probably enjoy this; Three Dog Night - Mama Told Me (Not To Come)

Another remix with an explanation of what the name, Three Dog Night, means is on this URL;  Mama Told Me Not To Come ~Three Dog Night

I'm a bit like the Bellamy Brothers 'Old Hippy', living in a voluntary time warp.

And for others who feel they don't quite fit this modern world here's another possibility.

Old Hippies are the best Hippies and nothing will ever make Vietnam and what those boys had to endure and die for, okay. Those clips always break my heart.

The second half is pretty upbeat for Country Music.

A bit of silliness for today, with an entertaining animation and some deft word-play.

Some more silliness. The sound quality isn't great but it's funny. We used to have the video, Stanley the Ugly Duckling, and the kids loved it. My husband loved that Hell's Eagles were singing in a kids animation.

Shelly Manne  - Step Lightly

Playing on the radio while I had my breakfast. If you don't start nodding to the beat I suggest you double-check you actually have a soul.

Heart - Stairway to Heaven (Live at Kennedy Center Honors)

Beautiful rendition with Jason Bonam on drums in his dad's place.

The cool thing about writing what you know is that you can always know more.

That is cool. Takes me back to the Henry Mancini and Pink Panther days with Peter Sellers - you know, the good Pink Panther movies.

This music makes me want to sit in a bar, have a drink or two, talk, and laugh with friends while we listen to jazz.
