Recording Artists: Diego Roots
Selection Title: Sunday Morning
Sunday Songs Archive: found @Home Page
Categories Menu “1-SundaySongSeries”
Parting Words:

Hard to believe 365 (technically 364) days have elapsed since we all set forth upon our musical journey together. Back in September ’18, the prospect of discovering 52 Sunday titled songs wasn’t even remotely on my mind. As far as encoring today’s feat between now and September ’20? Well… this might require relaxing my rules a bit… our possible new options…

• Our featured artists would be performing stellar covers of Sunday Songs we’ve already listened to.

• We’d no longer be limited to Sunday titles, exclusively. To e.g. that… the Commodores recorded “Easy” featuring the lyrical hook, “I’m easy like Sunday morning.”

• Another possibility would be to present selections that have absolutely no lyrical references to Sunday at all.

In any event… I can still muster a few more Sunday Song titles and for us to give ‘em a listen will require you and me meeting back here… seven days from now. See ya then?

A DIY Lyrical Matter ~ Sunday Song Series

Being at a loss for words is not necessarily a bad thing. Obviously, it shortens awkward conversations, prevents literary works that were never meant to be… AND… to inject a bit of self-deprecating humor… it can even shut up this far too frequently, long-winded blogger… insert Oxygen seeking gasp to catch my breath…

And then there’s the case of lyric-less songs.

Naturally, it’s not my intent to either imply writer’s block was at fault or to impugn the oft limitless musicianship / talents of most composers.

Normally, going word-free is “merely” a matter of a recording artist / composer being fully aware of the inherent beauty of the instrumental… namely… of how this liberates listeners to concentrate more intently on the melody / instrumentation itself… to maybe even zone out, sufficiently, to craft our own, personal story-lines to conform to the musical mood at hand… and then, ultimately, to allow such imagery to play out in the theater of the mind.

Such is the case with our Sunday Song Series, Week #49 musical adventure…

Recording Artist: Nick Drake
Selection Title: Sunday
Genre: EZ listening

My Recommendation: Click onto that video PB button and chill out
My Invitation: Please return for another Sunday Song… seven days from now…

Geeze… considering this post’s word count… which now stands at 260… inclusive of the content beyond that tallying point… and minus state sales taxes, licensing / registration fees and dealer prep charges… j/k… my verbosity remains unchecked.

Hmm… looks like I just blew my original blog premise… insert Oxygen seeking gasp to catch my breath…

 

 

 

Sunday And Me ~ Sunday Song Series

 

For week #48 of our Sunday Song Series, we’ll be checking out Sunday and Me… composed by Neil Diamond and recorded by Jay and the Americans. This selection is a.k.a. the track that launched Diamond’s uber-successful, half century spanning, songwriting career.

For anyone who’s been a regular listener, here, you’ll likely recall that Diamond, himself, became our Week #22 featured recording artist by turning in his performance of Hey Sunday Sun.

For anyone interested in playing or replaying that particular selection… or any of our other past Sunday Songs… you’ll find this entire, nearly yearlong, genre-generous mix neatly filed under the brand new to this site category…

Thanks for clicking by. Our musical adventure will continue… seven days from now…

 

 

An Unfinished 47 Movement Sunday Symphony

 

This post is to shamelessly promote a musical adventure, which began way back on Sunday, September 16, 2018. As a tour guide, of sorts, my premise has been straightforward. To present Sunday titled / themed songs each and every Sunday… music which [1] taps into the vast multitude of human emotions / moods, [2] knows few, if any, boundaries re genres and eras, [3] embraces cultural diversity, and [4] presents both secularism and an occasional, non-preachy religious perspective.

At the outset, I had expected our journey… at best… to last a couple of months. Well… that was 11 months ago. Since a long run had not been my intent, I hadn’t foreseen the possibility of accessibility issues arising.

Ergo, to make locating the Movements to our Sunday Symphony more user friendly, this early Sunday a.m., I decided to take on the tedious tech task of sorting through nearly 700 of my past posts to create an entirely new site category, which I’ve titled:

1-SundaySongSeries

BTW, my added “1” designation was just to ensure this new category would top off the Categories menu located off to the right side of my homepage.

To all who click onto 1-SundaySongSeries… while scrolling down, you’ll find (in reverse chronological order) a smorgasbord of musically tasty treats to choose from. As of 08/04/2019, here’s a list of each post’s featured recording artist / song selection…
