Championship Vinyl 005

Well after a week off due to the dreaded Covid, I’m back, so lets play some music

Song 1: Three Little Birds – Bob Marley

This is a very special song for me. When my oldest daughter was in kindergarten they did a big singing in the spring. This was the song her class performed. My memory is seeing her sing at the top of her lungs, while wearing tie dye. This is an image I’ll cherish forever.

Favorite Lyric: Don’t worry about a thing, everything things gonna be alright

Song 2:Tourniquet  by Evanescence

This is a dark song, which I’m a fan of. I remember buying the Fallen CD and this song really stuck out. Amy Lee’s voice is so full of emotion that It really moved me. Granted while its a dark song, It rocks and I like it simply for the rawness.

Favorite Lyric: Do you remember me, lost for so long will you be on the other side or will you forget me.

Song 3: But Anyway by Blues Traveler

There is no greater harmonica player than John Popper. When I was in community college in the mid to late 90’s I had to do a video project. I don’t remember the project so much today, but I remember trying to find a song to be the credits. While at lunch But Anyway played over the speakers and I was like, “this is it.” so I drove to the local music shop and bought the cd and have been a fan ever since.

Favorite Lyric: I put all my hope in tomorrow, it’s gonna be great, I can tell but anyway I see a new, a new day dawning, I like to sleep late, oh, well but anyway.

Song 4: Falling to Pieces by Faith No More

I remember watching their video for Epic and feeling drawn to their music. Since then I have been a fan of Faith no More and I can’t really tell you why. Mike Patton’s energy as a front man is fantastic. Sadly they aren’t as known today. I chose Falling to Pieces because its a funs song with a funky bass line. It will never win any awards, but dang it’s catchy.

Favorite Lyric: Droplets of “yes” and “no”, In an ocean of “maybe”

Song 5: Karma Chameleon by Culture Club

Growing up in the 80’s I will say this. This is the greatest song to come out in the 80’s period. The melody and harmony is so on point, and when it comes on the radio or a play list I have to sing. I remember getting flack, for liking this song, because of stupid reasons, but my answer was always the same, this song is awesome.

Favorite Lyric: Didn’t hear your wicked words every day, And you used to be so sweet I heard you say

Well that’s it for this week!! I hope to stay well and spin more for you next week!
