Wednesday’s Theme Music

This one came into the stream out of nowhere. I call it nowhere, but it’s connections in my brain, innit? Sometimes, the how and why of deliveries to the stream is self-evident; other times, the connections are deep or nebulous, or too esoteric for the conscious mind to easily hunt down.

Either way, I like to go with the flow. So, today, from 1970, we have John Fogerty with “Long As I Can See The Light”. It’s post CCR, but an interesting cover, from 2010.

 

Thursday’s Theme Music

I’ve been thinking about the Bruno Mars song, “Marry You” (2010).

It’s a bouncy song with a 1960s dance bop flavor to it that begins with a little setting.

It’s a beautiful night
We’re looking for something dumb to do
Hey baby
I think I wanna marry you

So, the essence I take is that they’re bored, so they’re getting married, not for love or romance, or so you’ll have someone with you to cope with disappointment and strive to get ahead, but because there’s nothing better to do. There is a touch of romance because he later confesses that maybe it’s the look in her eyes. But, it could also be the dancing juice. So…you know….

Later, he sings that if they break up, that’s okay.

If we wake up and you wanna break up that’s cool
No, I won’t blame you
It was fun, girl

But, you know, why not, right? Just say yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah-yeah. There are a lot of fun flash mobs out there around this song. Naturally, they involve someone asking someone else to marry them. I keep wondering if they plan to stay together, or was it just something fun to do?
