Week #16 Meets Week #81 (Sunday Song Series)

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…

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sunday Song Series: Another Ode To Sunday Morning

Easing us into this final Sunday of 2018 and week #16 of our Sunday Song Series is the Velvet Underground’s aptly titled tribute to Sunday Morning, which was released (as a single) fifty-two Decembers ago.

Magnificently enhancing the mellow mood established by song composers Lou Reed and John Cale will be the tranquil imagery (posted a scant seven days ago) by a YouTube videographer (screen name Midnight Classics).

Short and sweet best describes this song… so short that… well… let’s also give a listen to a cover version… courtesy of the accomplished acoustic guitar strumming and impeccable harmonizing of June & Lula…

For more Sunday songs, meet me back here seven days from now.
