The first song this morning was a live version of Robert Earl Keen’s “Feeling Good Again”. 

It reminds me of my hometown, even though there wasn’t really a place to go for live music.

Favorite line:

I wanted you to see ‘em all
I wished that you were there
I looked across the room
And saw you standin’ on the stair
And when I caught your eye
I saw you break into a grin
It feels so good feelin’ good again

The  music this morning started with what is likely my favorite album ever. The Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers Live Anthology.  The song was “Learning To Fly”, with the only female Heartbreaker Stevie Nicks making an appearance.

Favorite Line:

Well some say life will beat you down
Break your heart, steal your crown
So I’ve started out for God knows where
I guess I’ll know when I get there

The music started with a fun, live version of “Barbara Ann” from The Beach Boys.  It starts out with the typical Bah Bah Bah, with someone blurting out “Black Sheep have you any wool”.

The music opened earlier with Sheryl Crow with an acoustic version of “If it Makes You Happy.  The simplistic  sound of an acoustic guitar can be so relaxing.

The first song on this Wednesday morning was a live version of “Hotel California from the Eagles. 

I love that my imagination allows me to visualize driving through the desert in an old 80′s Mercedes convertible while hearing this song. It even allows me to imagine the longer hair. Just flying through the night, the only card on the road.

Fitting line:

On a dark desert highway, cool wind in my hair
Warm smell of colitas, rising up through the air

The first song on Saturday morning was a live performance of “Folsom Prison Blues”, by Johnny Cash, live at Folsom Prison.

Favorite Line:

Well when I was just a baby my mama told me son
Always be a good boy don’t ever play with guns
Well I shot a man in Reno just to watch him die
