Throwback Thursday with Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Nominees Rufus and Chaka Khan…

I know I’ve told you about my very cool, talented, older (sorry, Al) cousin Al Ciner, who was a member of a musical group called The American Breed.  He also played guitar for other bands back in the day, including Rufus, where Chaka Khan was the featured singer.  I know it’s not a great picture, but he’s the hunky, funky guy fourth from the left.  And this year Rufus is nominated for induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.  I would love it if you’d help by checking out the website and voting early and often, as we say in Chicago!  You can vote once a day through December 5 here:  https://www.rockhall.com/fan-vote/2018-fan-vote

If you’re (gasp!) too young to remember Rufus and Chaka Khan, have a listen to Tell Me Something Good.  Rufus won a Grammy in 1975 for Best R&B Vocal Performance by a Duo, Group or Chorus for this song!


Yay, Yay, it’s Saturday…

Tee hee…  But, yes *sigh*

Summer Cold, Again*…

Summer vacation, it was a blast
Summer cold, it happened so fast
Lack of sleep, not my own bed
Stuffiness, all through my head,

Summer days, sneezing away
But, oh, those drugged Nyquil nights!

Well-a well-a well-a huh
Tell me more, tell me more
Do you cough all the time?
Tell me more, tell me more
Is your nose filled with slime?

Tried to rest, but that didn’t work
Phone calls from telemarketer jerks
My poor throat is feeling so sore
Need more meds from the grocery store

Summer germs, now something’s inflamed
But, oh, those sleepy Nyquil nights!

Well-a well-a well-a huh
Tell me more, tell me more
Do you still feel like crap?
Tell me more, tell me more
Do you still need a nap?

A couple more days and I’ll be all right
I might wash my hair, not look such a fright
Think I might actually be on the mend
And this stupid cold will finally come to an end

Summer days, sneezing away
But, oh, those blissful Nyquil nights!!

*To the tune of Summer Nights from Grease.  I probably would have done an audio recording for you, you know, if it weren’t for my cold…

Yay, Yay, it’s Saturday…

A little musical thought…

It’s Friday…


He’s not really a rock star, but Ed Sheeran is my new obsession.  He could sing Thinking out Loud to me over and over *sigh* and cry on my shoulder about his $20 million (yikes!) lawsuit…

Who would you choose?  (And am I the only one bothered because it should say “an elevator”?)
