Monday's Music Moves Me: Hurricane Songs

 Today's theme on Monday's Music Moves Me is a freebie and I am going to go with a Hurricane Theme.  Just to fill everyone my area was hit by a category two hurricane. I rode the storm out. The flooding was quick to recede at my house and the storm left plenty to clean up in the yard. I am blessed the house wasn't damaged or my truck. I just got power back yesterday after five days. 

Neil Young "Like a Hurricane"

Bob Dylan "Hurricane"

Jimmy Buffett and Kenny Chesney  "Trying to Reason with Hurricane Season"

Anyway it is nice to have power and to be blogging again!

Battle of the Bands: Trying to Reason with Hurricane Season

 Sally is churning just offshore. I hear the pouring rains and gusting winds outside. As I write this sustained winds are about 33 mph. As I left work this alert popped on my phone...

I guess I am just "Trying to Reason with Hurricane Season"....

Well you know how it works, I find two contenders and you tell me which one you like the best in the comments. I count the votes and announce the winner in a separate post.

Contender One: Kenny Chesney

Contender Two:  Mishka

Well I am going to get ready for work and venture out in this mess. I hope you enjoy and I'll see you soon!

R.I.P Toots

Toots Hibbert passed away. A reggae pioneer who song may have termed Reggae.

"Do The Reggae"

"Sweet and Dandy"

He he is with one of my current favorites JJ Grey and Mofro...


Here he is with Gov't Mule...

He was a pioneer in reggae but shred his talent with others crossing many genres. A musical giant from Jamaica who will be missed by the musicians he influence, the musicians he jammed with, his fans, friends and family.

Battle of the Bands: Results for Trashy Woman

 The idea for using "Trashy Woman," the song, came from a comment ironically on a post about the results of my previous Battle of the Bands. Apparently I made a typo on the word results and typed it as "resluts" much to the entertainment of my reader. Now it could have been the way my reader read it.  Reading my blog in an altered state sometimes happens.  My blog is probably better read in an altered state! Well I went back to my post and I looked for a "reslut" and  in true fashion for my life I couldn't find one. I have made my fair share of typos so it is quite possible somewhere out there on my blog is a "reslut" just waiting to be found. After all my vision isn't the best and has gotten worse during the years! Also people have said if you don't stop certain activities you'll go blind. They might be right!

Anyway that is how the lightbulb came on about using "Trashy Woman" and it was an easy sell because I wanted to change genres from Rock and Roll. I knew Rocktober was coming around the corner so the time was right for a change.

As for the results of my Battle of the Bands, Confederate Railroad  ran away with this one like a run away train. Confederate Railroad won 5 to 1, or 6 to 1 if you count Stephen's guest. I mean Stephen is a great host just look at this blog hop, so I completely understand his popularity with guests. 

Celebrating are winner here are some other songs by "Confederate Railroad" for your listening pleasure!

                                           "Daddy Was Never the Cadillac Kind"

"Jesus and Mama"

Stay tuned for the next Battle on September 15! In between I might share a post or two. You never know when a "reslut" might appear or a story starting off with "the idea for using Trashy Woman" might be shared. Might as well come back, pull up a chair, and have a beverage of your choice and join the fun!

R.I.P Lou Brock

 Baseball Hall of Famer Lou Brock passed away today. He played in the major leagues for 19 seasons, he was on two World Champion teams. 

His specialty was stealing bases. He held some pretty impressive records that were broken by the great Ricky Henderson. He ended his career with 938 stolen bases. In 1974 he stole 118 in one season!

He was a six time All-Star, won the Come Back Player of the Year on his final season, had a career batting average of .293 and finished his career with 3023 hits.

He had a great career and will be missed by fans, friends and family.
