The Way To Start My Day
I could listen to this song every day for the next forty years. I should listen to it every day for the next forty years. Short of that, though, I'm going to listen to it today.

and now i am listening to it.

i love the way that the internet is international and instant. ish.

i will be putting this in my new compilation of things to do the gym to, since i have to do the hearty walking on a treadmill. i have never been one for aerobic exercise, but it has become necessary. bah! still, it does mean i get to revisit favourite musics - tunes i wouldn't necessarily lie down to.

Portable digital music is the best thing to happen to exercise since sex!

And, yes, I love that international instantish aspect of the net as well. It makes me so happy to know that you're there and I'm here and we're reading one another.

well, i have been a bit recalcitrant...

did you hear the julian cope tracks i sent to kim? i love his stuff, and have actually seen him more or less recently, which is more than can be said for most musicians.

"Hush now child, and doncha cry..."

I've loved that song since I first heard it in 1970. The part 1 & part 2 were played uncut on a radio show and I couldn't believe how positive and funky it was. I've been a fan of his ever since (I used to like the impressions too). Apparently Curtis was very kind to a young Jimi Hendrix when their paths crossed during the 60s, and Jimi always acknoledged that he'd learned stuff from watching Curtis on the guitar.

Re: "Hush now child, and doncha cry..."

It truly never gets old. The whole album is superb. I'd read that about Jimi as well. It makes sense if you think about Mayfield's picking which was also, though in a different vein, a big influence on Nile Rogers.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Can I buy you a beer or something??

Yes, but not today, sadly. I need to be sharp for teaching.

Happy Birthday!

and thanks for the Curtis song (and the recent Portishead, too).

I can't get MOG to work right. I'll keep trying, but decided to bring some of the music here.

Thanks for the birthday wishes!

MOG is weird world. I get a strange feeling that many of the biggest contributors are paid (prob. poorly) to be there. And the functionality, even when one buys the Rhapsody hookup is not really there. For instance, I find it screwy that my Rhapsody plays don't show on my MOG recently played list.

Have you tried last.fm? http://www.last.fm/listen/user/brownbattery/playlist

I do hope you have a great b'day and that the allergens are giving you a respite.

Oh man, Curtis Mayfield is always good; but this song is magical.
