Song of the Day – ‘Overjoyed’

I fell into this before Oscars week when I posted her covering Michael.  I generally try to space out using the same artist too close together. BUT… When you successfully cover my single favorite Stevie song… In the genre that’s the soundtrack to my life… In front of the President AND the songwriter… And kill […]

Song of the Day – ‘As’

As around the sun the earth knows she’s revolving And the rosebuds know to bloom in early May Just as hate knows love’s the cure You can rest your mind assure That I’ll be loving you always As now can’t reveal the mystery of tomorrow But in passing will grow older every day Just as […]

Song of the Day – ‘Overjoyed’

Over time, I’ve been building my castle of love Just for two, though you never knew you were my reason I’ve gone much too far for you now to say That I’ve got to throw my castle away Over dreams, I have picked out a perfect come true Though you never knew it was of […]

Song of the Day – ‘God Only Knows’

  Oh come on, did we really need another cover of ‘God Only Knows’?  You can’t really top the original. Fine I’ll check it out… (clicks Play…) Oh, an orchestra?  OK… Elton?  Stevie?!? (nostrils flaring up…) Chris Martin?!?  Kylie?!?  Dave Grohl?!? (lip quivering…) LORDE?!?  ONE DIRECTION?!? (‘God Only Knows What I’d Be Without You…’) AND […]

Song of the Day – ‘Tell Me Something Good’

  This was always one of my favorite ‘handle it’ songs that came out before my time.  When it was recently brought to my attention that Stevie wrote this one, I think I have to call it my number one. And I’ve made this joke before, but it’s still true.  As a man, whenever I […]

Song of the Day – ‘How Deep Is Your Love?’

  I’m scapegoating Stevie Wonder for most of this, but now that my attention is back on finishing the Lady rewrite, and more importantly since I’m on a relatively tight deadline, I picked three movie star names out of the list of ‘actresses you guys suggested I should write parts for’, and I’m using those ladies as […]

Song of the Day – ‘We Can Work It Out’

  Hearing this reminded me of how fortunate I feel to have seen Stevie play the Bowl a couple years ago.  Wasn’t on my bucket list at the time but when the opportunity presents itself… Anyway, I’m somewhat notoriously known for believing relationships have to run their natural course.  Everyone is not meant to be […]

’20 Feet From Stardom’

  With only a general knowledge of what this film was about, it took about 5 minutes for this pop music geek to feel like a kid in a candy store. 20 Feet From Stardom is the story of the background singer.  And I’m still a little amazed by how much information and how many stories […]
