I need an easy friend, I do, with an ear to lend

Music

A friend reminded me that a couple of days ago was the death anniversary of Kurt Cobain. šŸ˜¦ His blog postĀ got me thinking about what my favorite Nirvana song is. A very hard choice. But I think my favorite Nirvana song is “About A Girl.” Ā I read (or heard) somewhere that is what fell out of his brain after listening to the Beatles all night. And, indeed, it has that jaunty, old time, rock and roll feel to it, with an edge.

So that thought came and went and I went about my business. Then yesterday as I walked home from work guess what song randomly popped up on my iTunes? Yep. About A Girl.

It’s always great to hear it and revisiting the MTV Unplugged video fills me with a little bit of sadness.

 

 

Just an old, sweet song

Music

On my walk home from work last night “Georgia On My Mind” played on the iTunes. I love this song, in all of it’s versions. But my favorite is Willie Nelson’s version. This was my stepdfather’s favorite song and when I hear it I think of him.

This song, for me, evokes twilight on a warm Summer evening. So let this be my submission for this week’s Daily Post Photo Challenge: Half Light. Here is a photo of last night’s sunset.
