Way back @Week #16, our ongoing journey into the world of Sunday titled songs (travel date: 12-31-2018) we found ourselves exploring Velvet Underground’s Sunday Morning… a track bookended by a glockenspiel intro / outro.
VU’s likely influence upon the Nineties alternative – emo – pop – punk – indie band Jimmy Eat World, resulted in the latter group’s composition A Sunday, which appeared on their 1999 album Clarity AND, which also just happens to be our Week #81 Sunday Song.
Thanks and Kudos to YouTuber Stephen Carpineta for supplying the mood enhancing visuals… perfect imagery for imperfect times. A walk on the wild side… i.e., our meandering through the underpopulated wilderness… doth neatly conform with our society’s newfound, hopefully temporary, socially distancing lifestyle.
Thanks for stopping by on this day. STAY safe, STAY at home, STAY healthy and meet me back here for our next Sunday Song… seven days from now…
Welcome to Week #9 of our Sunday Songs Series. During this musical adventure, we’ll be giving a listen to the mega-talented, legendary Ms. Laura Nyro and Ms. Patti Labelle. On 11/17/1971 this dynamic duo released a cover songs, studio LP, Gonna Take a Miracle… that disc’s lead track being I Met Him on a Sunday… composed by Doris Jackson, Addie Harris McPherson, Beverly Lee and Shirley Alston Reeves… collectively known as The Shirelles).
In short, Labelle and Nyro’s doo-wop / pop, mostly acappella, delivered narrative features a fleeting whirlwind romance… the fate of a lover, who fails to show up one particularly important Friday.
Of course, unlike that undependable Romeo, you can count on me to meet you back here in seven days for yet another installment of our Sunday Song Series.
BTW… for anyone who has missed our past, Sunday journeys… or would like to revisit any of our former musical destinations… they are all conveniently archived within my music category.
