THE 1980s — Music Themes


Wonderful Willow chose the Music Theme for this week:

THE 1980s

Youngest son wanted me to use the MTV video, but it was (to me) gross.  The words are expressive enough.
T.V. DINNERS –1983 — Eliminator — ZZ Top — Billy Gibbons, Dusty Hill, Frank Beard
3min. 54sec.

Since Buffy Sainte Marie was mostly at home or in Europe during the 1980s, this song seems appropriate.
I’M GOING HOME — Buffy Sainte Marie

Heaven isn’t so far away as people say
I got a home high in my heart
Heaven is right where I come from; I never throw it away
I know the place and I’m going home
I’m going home
I’m going home

See up there, it’s not the same
They know your name
And I’m not ashamed to need it I’m going home
I’m going home
I’m going home

You keep on knocking but
I’m not coming out of this state I’m in
I’m travellin’ right, I’m gonna get there soon
I’m standing up praying, I’m singing
Saying Heyo ha ha heyo ha hey ya
I know the way and I’m going home.
I’m going home
I’m going home

That’s where the heart can rest
The best is there
And only a fool would leave it. I’m going home
I’m going home
I’m going home
I’m going home

I been around, I been to town
Hey, where you think I learned right from wrong
And I’m going home
I’m going home

THE FINE PRINT — Music Themes

Lisa chose the theme THE FINE PRINT for this week.
The theme for next week is DRAGONS
Children must be cared for all day and all night everyday and every night twenty-four hours a day no matter what. Absolutely no matter what. It also absolutely required that this be done with good humor,  love and kindness,  gentleness, and all of the wisdom that can be mustered.

SLEEPSONG — Secret Garden
5min. 51sec.


Children must be cared for all day and all night every day and every night twenty-four hours a day by at least one impeccably trustworthy adult. No matter what.  Absolutely no matter what.

Who knows what the future will hold? Certainly, THE FINE PRINT says: The future will be brighter for children, and everyone, if you act with the welfare of children, and future generations in mind.

I have plenty of opinions about most things, and strong opinions about childcare.  Keep in mind my opinions are just that, my opinions.

MOVING MOUNTAINS — Nemesis — Two Steps From Hell
3min. 4sec.

In sickness and in health, for better or worse

SARAJEVO — Max Richter
3min. 59sec.

“My dear love…”

Work, work, and more work and practice, and foot work and breathe. Plenty of restful sleep and a healthful diet are in THE FINE PRINT. With the Takitumu the flavor is so bold, it doesn’t seem like there would be any FINE PRINT. But there is.THE FINE PRINT of dance is discipline.
Takitumu Akirata Ou Ura Pau
5min. 22sec.

Most people are so distracted by the hips or the stories told by the hands that they don’t notice the essential FINE PRINT. Often the practice and stamina building work required to perform dance is not thought about by people observing. Have you ever tried to do a pliés? Try doing a set of pliés with your knees clapping back and forth like these men do. Strength and foot work and breathing and disciplined practice are the FINE PRINT in dance.
Novosvětská symfonie Part II Largo — Antonín Dvořák
12MIN. 49SEC.

Antonín Dvořák: Symphony №9 in E minor, Op. 95 “From The New World”

What are you nostalgic for? Who or what aspect of home do you remember with fondness? Do you feel nostalgia the almost or even the never was?

I wish for my past
Nostalgia for what was not
Unfinished dreaming
