Ani’s Norm Morn (SundaySongSeries)

Indie / Folkie Ani DiFranco, via her aptly titled composition, Sunday Morning, becomes our Week #108 Sunday Songs Series virtual tour guide.

She’ll be singing / playing us thru the run-down of her ho-hum Sunday Morning routine; seemingly basking in the normalcy of it all.

Considering how so much has changed in 2020, have not we, the social isolating souls, been ho-humming similar sentiments re our pandemic redefined, Sundays / everydays?

Granted, our reactions to the new reality can differ. However, in my own case, I actually find it comforting to be hunkering down, within my lair’s relatively safer confines, no matter what day of the week it may be; especially when compared to the alternative of masking up to (hopefully) avoid Covid whenever venturing forth to post a bill payment / lay in provisions.

If you’ve found our virtual journey into the world of Sunday titled songs to your liking, let’s meet up back here for another adventure, 7 days from now. Till then…

Stay Publicly Masked!
Stay Safe at Home!

Smooth Jazz (Sunday Song Series)

There’s one driving experience that seems to be as universal as the red octagonal stop sign. That’d be our winding up behind the Sunday driver, who’s going 32 kph (20 mph) below the posted speed limit. And all the while that ol’ double yellow line just keeps on reminding us that we’re navigating an “interminably” long stretch of winding, mountainous terrain.

Of course, were we to have Motown Moe’s smooth jazz playing over the auto sound system… oh… say… finding his aptly named track, Sunday Driver, adding some stress mitigating ambiance to that above paragraph’s scenario?

Well… would we even mind taking life at a slower pace… for awhile… be it on a Sunday or any other day?

Sunday Driver appears on Motown Moe’s May 2020 released album, The New Normal. And, btw, it’s a.k.a. our Week #106 stopover during our ongoing journey thru the vast realm of Sunday titled songs.

If you’ve found this week’s travels enjoyable, how about headin’ back here… seven days from now? Till then…

Honest Indie-Pop (SundaySongSeries)

Our Week #105 stopover, within the vast world of Sunday titled songs, finds us visiting “The Big Apple”… East Love’s home base. Today these recording artists will be performing the aptly titled Sunday Afternoon. Their website will fill in more details re the musicians and their music.

“East Love is an indie-pop group based in New York City. Band members include Lukas Effman (lead vocals), Rob Fink (guitar, vocals), Alex Goldstein (ukulele, bass, vocals), Andy Koehler (keys), and Austin Deyo (drums). Lukas, Robbie, & Alex Goldstein have been playing together since their high school days, and they all teamed up to form East Love when they moved to New York City in late 2012. East Love is focused on writing, recording, and performing honest music – both from a lyrical and instrumentation standpoint. The band weaves in pop influences, but always keeps the music grounded in real instruments and lots of vocal harmonies.” [More Info Here]

Our musical journey resumes 7 days from now. Hope you’ll be back at that time. Till then…

Sunday Song Series’ 2nd Anniversary!

Surfaces, fronted by founders Forrest Frank and Colin Padalecki are at their Sunday Best whether they’re performing, on stage, at Seth Meyer’s NBC studio 8G or in their official music video.

As seen in our clip, above, this electro-pop ensemble made their 03/02/2020 late-night television debut on Meyers’ talk show, scant days before the pandemic became everybody’s worst nightmare come true.

As for our clip, below, YouTube posted on 07/10/2019, keep an eagle eye as the 1:50 mark nears… the workplace break room scene… where the refrigerator magnet held sign is titled: “Stop the Spread of Flu”. Talk about foreshadowing, huh?

Within the vast realm of Sunday titled songs, Sunday Best has been our Week #104 stopover; which also means that our ongoing musical journey has just reached its 2nd anniversary! Year 3 begins 7 days from now! Till then…

CC’s 3-D POV (Sunday Song Series)

Without coming across as inordinately preachy, Canadian country music songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and vocalist, Chris Cummings, repeatedly, cleverly, lyrically laments about an issue, which few theologians seem to ever openly address… namely…

How attendees of memorial services, at times, don’t really know why they’re there. Some don’t even know that they don’t know. As such, would they even have a prayer of ever finding out?

Today’s selection, Sunday Best, is a.k.a. our Week #103 stopover within the vast realm of Sunday titled songs.

Our musical journey is far from over. I hope to welcome you back, here, seven days from now.

Till then…

R.I.P. Trini Lopez (Sunday Song Series)

Singer / guitarist / recording artist Trini Lopez, 83, passed away this past Tuesday, August 11, 2020 (due to COVID-19 complications). His professional career had spanned 1959 thru 2020.

I first became aware of his limitless musical artistry, proficiency and energy… way back in 1963… when radio jocks were playing his lively, chart topper hit interpretation of If I Had a Hammer… courtesy of station CKLW’s (Windsor, Ontario), 50,000 watt, broadcast tower.

Mr. Lopez’s cover of the Manos Hadjidakis compostion, Never on Sunday (first sung by Melina Mercouri in the film of the same name), becomes our Sunday Song Series’ Week #101 selection… now playing out in this BlogCast and beaming all across the www… courtesy of WordPress’ powerful blogging platform.

Although music aficionados, worldwide, feel saddened, we can take comfort in knowing that the vast discography, which superstar Trini Lopez has bestowed upon humanity, will shine on in perpetuity.

You’re cordially invited back for our next Sunday Song… seven days from now.
