Johnny chose The Mind for Music theme for this week.
Next week our theme will be SUMMER
Georgia On My Mind (original) — Ray Charles
Ray Charles was born in Georgia and moved to Florida as a child. At the age of 5 he began losing his sight gradually, and by age 7 was completely blind. He studied at the St. Augustine School For the Deaf and Blind, in Florida, where he first learned to play the piano. He then moved to Seattle, where he began to be published as a musician.
Fear is the Mind Killer — Brian Tyler — Children of Dune
All Love Can Be by James Horner sung by Charlotte Church — A Beautiful Mind
I will watch you in the darkness
Show you love will see you through
When the bad dreams wake you crying
I’ll show you all love can do
All love can do
I will watch by the night
Hold you in my arms
Give you dreams where no one will be
I will watch through the dark
Till the morning comes
For the lights will take you
Through the night to see
All love, showing us all love can be
I will guard you with my bright wings
Stay till your heart learns to see
All love can be
The movie A Beautiful Mind is the John Forbes Nash, Jr. story, dramatized. While the movie is outstanding and inspirational and I do recommend that you watch it, more than once, it does not accurately follow John Nash, Jr.’s life. The biography, of the same name, more carefully follows his life, and is a well written, readable and informative book, focusing on Nash’s mathematical genius and also his schizophrenia .
John Forbes Nash, Jr. – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
“John Forbes Nash, Jr. (born June 13, 1928) is an American mathematician whose works in game theory, differential geometry, and partial differential equations have provided insight into the factors that govern chance and events inside complex systems in daily life. His theories are used in market economics, computing, evolutionary biology, artificial intelligence, accounting, politics and military theory. Serving as a Senior Research Mathematician at Princeton University during the latter part of his life, he shared the 1994 Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences with game theorists Reinhard Selten and John Harsanyi.”
A Kaleidoscope of Mathematics — James Horner —A Beautiful Mind
Psychobabble — The Alan Parsons Project
They’re Coming to Take me Away — the Napoleon XIV

Even the Goddess of Wisdom can be jealous, perhaps we mortals would be wise to remember that.

Bear! These are all amazing picks. What a great post! “I will not fear. Fear is the mind killer. I will turn and face my fear and let it pass through me and when it is gone only I will remain.”
This post is a great description of the beast that is the mind!!!!
Yeah. Mine is anyway. Maybe everyone’s isn’t, but mine turns on me lots of times. It reminds me of a giant computer that can’t be controlled or a werewolf. Sometimes I just have to go with it.

Varulven = Werewolf (Swedish) 🙂
