Life on Mars (He's dead Sam.)
Some sentimental songs I love.





God, this song gets me right here. Diana Ross' version is also beautiful, it's even better, musically, because it doesn't have whatever the hell that thing is in the background, but Stevie's voice sells me on this one. It sounds so damn earnest.



I was going to write a story based on this song, but since it hasn't happened by now, I suspect it never will.





Dude. How can you not? The frog has one hell of a way with words.

And while we're at it, I have been rewatching The Muppet Show lately and this song totally made me cry with how beautiful it is. Guh. It's simple, yet effective, and the sentiment is warm and fuzzy.

The "thing" in the background of the Stevie Wonder song sounds like an amped Pedal Steel Guitar.

I'm not a huge Neil Diamond fan but that's a really good song about something women always fail to understand about men and Kermie! Yeah, Kermie!

Hahahaha! I know, I was being ultra derogatory. The guitar completely detracts from the song for me, so it gets relegated to "whatever the hell that is" territory. Am I the only one who does that?

I never thought I'd be a fan of Neil Diamond, but I really love his lesser known tracks.

And Kermie! Well, anything Muppets, really. It's utter genius.

*g* I live in the South which means The Blues Brothers joke about "we have both kinds of music here, country and western" isn't too far off the mark. I just wasn't that familiar with either a steel guitar or a dobro until I moved here.
