PLAYLIST FOR “LET’S TALK ABOUT ME” (12.8.18)

9 Dec

Last night’s show was all about me – no, it’s not what you’re thinking. Check out the song titles and you’ll see that the show was all about “me,” not me. Although since I chose all the songs and all the singers myself, wasn’t the show really all about me? If anyone isn’t utterly confused yet, write to me. I’m sure I can fix that.

    Dear H, The following 3 of your choices really surprised us, in the best possible way. Boz Scaggs singing “All the Sad Young Men”; Steven Tyler singing “Smile”; and Sir Paul McCartney singing “Night covers all”. For all three of these, we googled other versions of the same song, and you had chosen the one where the vocal quality best matched the sentiment of the song. Kudos on your choices! We also LOVED “The Mason Song” by David Patrick Kelly. Short, but oh so sweet! You have probably already heard this one, but I wanted to mention Michael McDonald’s version of “All in love is Fair”, on his Motown CD. Quite beautiful! And (as you already know) anything and everything by Kenny Rankin! BTW, You also played Errol Garner “Chase Me”, and Al Jarreau (didn’t catch the title), but WOW! See, we really are listening!! There is no other show like yours, and it is like finding water in the desert, so thank you, and we’ll keep listening!! Bonnie and Bruce
