Song of the week

Periodically, when I'm really feelin' a song I hear, I'll post it in the sidebar over there. I don't know if anyone ever notices as no one ever comments. But, this week's second song means a lot to me for two reasons:

1. Recently, I'm deeply saddened by the VERY untimely death of Leroi Moore, who served as the saxophone player for The Dave Matthews Band since the band's inception. A musical genius, he was. There were a million songs I could have chosen from that highlight Moore's remarkable talent, but I like "So Right". A lot. (Also, I couldn't find the album version of "Jimi Thing", which has the ability to cheer me up no matter what kind of mood I'm in. The lyrics for "So Right" can do that to me as well... "Our love is so right...forget the clouds that rain on your light..." Mmmmmm.

2.DJC and I will be celebrating our four year anniversary this weekend and before we met in person (lots of online and phone conversations before a face to face meet), "So Right" was one of the songs that made me smile because it reminded me of him. I made him a DMB CD, and he said that it made his ears bleed. I don't care, though. This song will always be tied to the way he made me feel before we met.

So, yeah. If you're liking the music, feel free to drop me a line and let me know. Otherwise, I'll continue to change the songs weekly with the understanding that no one listens to them but me...

aight enforcer, I'm gonna be honest with u...

NOT feeling SWV... BUT I AM feeling "So Right" from DMB. Didn't know the saxophonist died, that's too bad, cuz he was ridiculously good.

And more honesty: I read your blog usually through my google reader which only presents elements in the text and nothing within the formatting of your actual blog page, so I don't see your song of the week generally. I only go to your actual blog to post comments, hence I was able this time to comment on SWV, whom I'm not very fond of (hope that grammar isn't wrong... shit...)

Anyhoo, hope to hear from you soon! And no foamy Lattes please!!!
;-) love ya!
