Hi, everyone. It’s been a tough few days at our place. I’ve averaged about four hours of sleep a night for the past five days. We had two more cats at the veterinarian on an urgent basis, so I’ve spent $1K on vet bills in the same period (most of it for lab work). The good news is that the other two cats are okay except for some tummy trouble, which may be due to stress in the wake of us losing Paddy.
I am sure you also noticed that I primarily reblogged stories over the weekend. Honestly, I didn’t have the mental energy to do much else. I’m trying to be gentle with myself during a difficult time (and I’m not always very good at that).
So, this week’s song. As has happened so many times in the last little bit, I have found serendipitous recommendations on YouTube. Today, it was finding an “unplugged and seated” video of The BeeGees doing “To Love Somebody.” It just felt right to share the beautiful harmonies and message. Because all of that lost sleep I wrote about earlier? Was in the cause of love.
I admit, I was struggling to figure out what song to share this week. I was unwell for much of the weekend, and not looking forward to the week ahead. Then, this came across my YouTube recommendations and I knew it was the right song.
Here are Paul McCartney, Rod Stewart, the late Joe Cocker, and Eric Clapton performing “All You Need is Love,” with a chorus of UK music notables, back in 2002.
Hi, everyone. It’s hard to believe we’re in July already!
We’re going to see Paul McCartney perform next week, so when this video came up I couldn’t resist sharing. Please enjoy Paul McCartney and Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler doing “Helter Skelter” together during a June 29 concert in Las Vegas.
This video popped up in my YouTube recommendations, and I loved it. Enjoy Bonnie Raitt, Sheryl Crow, and the legendary Mavis Staples performing “Livewire” live on Ellen.
Hi, everyone. This weekend, I was elected Vice President of Coastal Cruisers, a brand-new chapter of Sisters in Crime. It seemed only appropriate that I share these two songs in honor of the occasion.
