Histoire

All I can say about this, is that I've always loved Edith Piaf and I've become such a fan-extraordinaire of Martha Wainwright that when I happened upon this performance on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, I just about passed out from sheer bliss.



(And her shoes! Can we just talk about the shoes for a sec?! Oy.)

Grow

"Every blade of grass has its angel that bends over it and whispers 'Grow....grow.' "
~ The Talmud



I love you, Angel. I know you're out there.

Tell All

Get out of bed, pick up the phone
Time to tell the press
Say to myself, I can't do no-one else
There's a whole world outside
I'm gonna tell it all
I'm gonna sell it all
I'm gonna sell
Get out of bed
Come out and sing
Blue skies ahead
The man who told everything
And I feel, like I'm losing my head
I didn't mean to stay
Lives have been wrecked, and I've picked up my cheque
Catch a plane out of here
I'm gonna get out of here
I'm gonna get out of here
I'm gonna sell
Get out of bed
Come out and sing
Blue skies ahead
The man who told everything

Doves

Currently on heavy, heavy rotation.



There's just something about a song that sounds like a train.

Fright

Seriously, people. If this does not make you simultaneously guffaw and have nightmares, I just don't know what will.

Love is a Verb

Love, love is a verb
Love is a doing word
Fearless on my breath
Gentle impulsion
Shakes me makes me lighter
Fearless on my breath

Teardrop on the fire
Fearless on my breath

Nine night of matter
Black flowers blossom
Fearless on my breath
Black flowers blossom
Fearless on my breath

Teardrop on the fire
Fearless on my breath

Water is my eye
Most faithful mirror
Fearless on my breath
Teardrop on the fire of a confession
Fearless on my breath
Most faithful mirror
Fearless on my breath

Teardrop on the fire
Fearless on my breath

Stumbling a little
Stumbling a little.

Again

We've all seen it before but let's watch it again, shall we?


I doubledogdare you not to smile while watching this. (and wishing you could do this routine on the treadmill as well)

Vanity

Please excuse me while I try to squeeze my big, fat head through the doorway....

Herd

While I do not judge those that adore the Jonas Brothers, I have never been able to join the herd.

Until today....



Clearly the song is too long for dear, sweet Joe. He may need to watch some of the pros do it.

Case in point:




My niece, doin' her thang.


And, of course, the original.
