Biographical Mixed Tape Play List, Now with Links!!!

IMG_1164 (1)

A Testimonial from Morrie (Pictured) the newest in the pack around here:  “Wouldn’t you believe a face like this? I have this to say about Judy’s music mix.  There’s not a dog in the bunch! Go ahead–give them a listen!!! Her taste in music is as good as her taste in dogs. “

First of all, I want to thank Morrie for his endorsement of my musical taste.  When he first came to live here, just a few short weeks ago, his musical taste was no more refined than a fondness for”How Much is That Doggie in the Window” and an ability to sing along on the chorus with “The Singing Dogs.” But he seems to be a clever little dog.  He learned to sit and stay very quickly.  Also how to break into my bedroom through the bars on the grill work at the door.  But it never occurred to me that he was absorbing the culture of the house as well.  So thanks, Morrie, for your vote of confidence.

Now, on to the matter at hand. When I published my list of songs for my mixed tape yesterday, I didn’t have the links attached.  I now have links for all but one, so if you’d like an easy way to listen to a lot of good music, please go back to yesterday’s post  HERE.

While you are waiting, or if you aren’t interested in backtracking EVEN FOR THE REWARD OF SOME REALLY GOOD MUSIC, here’s a song I love (with link)  that didn’t exactly suit my biography. The dog mentioned at the beginning is Morrie, though!!!

Silent All These Years
Tori Amos




Duck and Cover

Duck and Cover


Little Duck heard Big Duck trying to cover a new Tom Waits song and he was rattling at the door to get out.


Little Duck couldn’t help vamping it up a bit as he joined in the chorus


As if magnetized, Little Duck was drawn to Big Duck’s riffs, but when, his enthusiasm overwhelming him, he attempted to join in, he ruined the chord.


He attempted to straighten out Big Duck’s fingering, but they could both tell this wasn’t going to work.


So, once Little Duck was able to overcome Big Duck’s slight annoyance, they were able to talk it over and come to a compromise.


And together, they discovered they could take the “Long Way Home” together. THE END




Addendum to NaPoWriMo Day 9 Post: I’ll Leave the Light On

For our day 9 post, we were to post a poem that incorporated at least 5 song titles.  I incorporated more and offered a prize for the person who could find the most and promised to publish the solution later.  Well, I failed to do that but I am remedying it today.  Below is the poem with song titles in boldface.  If you count them, you will see there are 50!!! 

The winner was “forgottenman,” who didn’t find all of them but found more than most.  He says no fair to use one-word titles, but I wrote the poem and I make the rules.  You won anyway, Forgottenman!  (See his blog at okcforgottenman.wordpress.com.)

I’ll Leave the Light On

This is a world for the knowing,
and everybody knows
that if we would try just a little bit harder
that we wouldn’t feel so trapped.
yet still we cry baby, cry.

You think he’s gonna carry you home
to China?
It’s not like that, darlin’.
It’s more likely
that you’re walkin’ blind.
You will be two marionettes
on the Twickeham Ferry.

Where can I go?
you ask,
a woman left lonely
in winter.

What you gonna do––
let your wedding dress
carry you home
to the cold mountains?

Run, baby, run.
Let the black ladder
be your museum of flight.
At heart you were always
a circus girl,
that woman on the tier
far above desolation row.

When were you happy?
I know you keep me in your heart,
the one who loves you the most.
I am in your mind,
in the wind.
The memory of me
is better than love.

This is a call
a broken man’s lament.
I hope it will
carry you home.
Walk away, Renée.
Walk away

You’ll accompany me.
We can take the long way home


(There are 50 song titles.  If you came up one short,  Cry Baby and Cry are two separate titles)
