Lay, Lady, Lay

Okay, just one more summertime song memory… In my post on Mazzy Star’s “Fade into You,” a song I feel has a definite Bob Dylan vibe to it, I promised to share a summer memory associated with one of Dylan’s tunes. A song can be memorable because of its meaning, or how the lyrics relateContinue reading “Lay, Lady, Lay”

Clear Desert Night

As I mentioned in yesterday’s post, Sweety and I planned to drive out of the city last night to try to view some of the Perseid meteor shower.  We left home a bit before 10:00 pm and arrived at Birds Hill Provincial Park about three-quarters of an hour later.

I vaguely remember the record, Blue Moves, which came out in 1976 though I do remember the melancholic hit that came from it, “Sorry Seems to Be the HardestContinue reading “Out of the Blue”
