Friday’s Theme Music

We’ve come to Friday. Full stop. What else needs said? Everyone has a Friday sense, a feel for what Friday means for them. We do that with every day, though, depending on schedules and activities, wants and needs, desires and confusion, determination and goals.

Rain is falling on this Oregon coast August 19th. The sun’s reappearance was dampened by clouds but still took place at 6:23 this morning. Turning away from Sol — which often invokes Pink Floyd and someone singing, “On the turning away” — takes place at 8:19 this evening. By that time, we’ll expect to be at 67 F, a small jump from our current 16 C. They say it feels like 60. Whatever, it’s loaded with soft salty fishy oceany fragrances sprinkled with dirt, sand, and asphalt, along with plant smells. Know that melange? It’s a relaxing scent to inhale, one that unfolds the soul and pours out cares, at least for a little while. It also invokes memories for me, of where I’ve been, my present intersection of time, space, and being, and the final leg, who I am. Cue The Who, “Who Are You”.

Falling rain means Elvis Presley for The Neurons, today, though. They could have gone with Blind Melon and “No Rain”, I suppose, but no, they have “Kentucky Rain” (1970) circumambulating my morning mental music stream. Why? Silly one, The Neurons don’t explain their processes and decisions. Perhaps that’s only me. Your Neurons might be much nicer. Well, my neurons are nice, just as wild and free as a clowder of kitties chasing dandelion seeds on the wind.

Here’s the music. Stay positive and test negative. I must go on a coffee quest. (Yes, now The Neurons have folded “The Impossible Dream” into the morning mental music mix.)

  1. Since the Elvis movie came out my daughter 51 and her youngest, 15 have become avid fans of him. So strange because of course I was a fan a million years ago😂

    In lieu of my own music post today, I give you my friend Michael’s “Friday Theme Music”. I’m not a big fan of Elvis — too much schmaltz & glitter, too much gyrating to suit me — but he did a few songs that I particularly like, and this is one of them. Thanks, Michael! Cheers!

      1. Mom and step-mom were EP fans. Never did it for me but I’m familiar with a huge swath of his offerings, just because of his huge exposure throughout my childhood. Cheers


      2. It speaks volumes, but he sang it forbthe wrong reason. His music was becoming irrelevent, so he requested a relevent song be written for him. He sang “In rhe Ghetto” well, but I would challenge that he cared what it was about. But that’s just me.

      3. He was a professional. But his sales were lagging and he wanted something that spoke to the time. He (or someone) thought it might revive his career. It did, for a few weeks only.

      4. Ah well. I still think it’s a good song and that he pulled it off well. I’m not a fan of Elvis the person, just as I’m not a fan of Michael Jackson the person, but I can still admire certain of their work.
