Rest Easy, Friday Night: Vol. 16: The Musical Education of Leaky Waders

So many things rush through my head, sitting next to this new little addition to our family. He surely is an amazing little man.

I started to think of music, and, if he likes music, what his journey will be. Then I thought, hmm, what are the big songs that influenced me through the years. I’m going to go WAY back on this one. I’ve been all over the place. I’m sure if I thought about it longer, I could come up with SO many more. 
Enjoy the seemingly endless supply of youtube videos!
“Rubber Ducky”- Ernie
“Star Wars Theme”
Michael W. Smith “Friends are Friends”
“In the Jungle” – The Nylons

Rest Easy, Friday Night. Vol 1

I’m jumping on the band wagon. Friday night music. Several people (Lunker Hunt, River Damsel, and more)  out there have been spreading the musical love. What’s one more?

Tonight, I bring you Regina Spektor. I discovered her one morning before work. A “new” music video on VH1 called “Fidelity.”  That was probably her biggest hit, but she has put out so many good songs. Sara and I saw her live in Omaha at a small venue. She was spectacular. Enough words. Time for Regina.

Now that you’ve been introduced to her eccentricity, here is a cover of someone more familiar, John Lennon’s “Real Love.”

That song was a contender for our wedding song. I’ll finish with one of her popular tunes. A beautiful song slower. If you want to finish on something more upbeat, look for “Fidelity”. it won’t disappoint.

Have a great weekend everyone. I’m hoping to tie a few shrimp this weekend. I’ll get back to you with the results.
