My Music Monday

While I'm honoured that Don over at No Fooling Me has decided to occasionally do his own My Music Monday, I now feel the need to trademark the name - just to protect intellectual property. if there is anything intellectual about me.

So, perhaps now it will be My Music Monday™.  Or perhaps Blobby's My Music Monday™, but then there goes the alliteration.

Don might refer to me as "his Blobbyness" or "Sir Blobbiness", I might have to register those names just for safety.

I've been in an Aimee Mann mood lately, but I rarely stray too far from her work. I think maybe her music has been on my mind because I've read she's completed her new disk and will be released in September of this year.

When it comes to live music, there are some songs that actually work better in a live setting than the studio. A few come to mind:  Prince's "Anotherloverholeyohead", Fleetwood Mac's "I'm So Afraid" and Wings' "Time to Hide" are just a few.

Mann's "Going Through the Motions" can be added to that list.  It was released in live version, on her DVD from a concert at St. Ann's Warehouse. A while later the studio version was released on The Forgotten Arm.

Maybe it was because I heard the live version first that I am partial to it, but I don't think that is really the case.  The live version shows more energy and it just has a stronger vibe.

Yes, I have the St. Ann's Warehouse DVD, but don't know how to pull off a song to feature here....and while there are many videos out on the internets from this concert, none of them are "Going Through the Motions".   So unfortunately, you get just the audio player embedded below.

Also weird, that the normal player I use, OpenDrive, isn't letting me upload music to put on this blog, which is bothersome, at best.  So let's see how this works.

I suppose I could have tried to find a Memorial Day song, but I'm not feeling it, let alone know where to start...and like I said, I've been on an Aimee Mann kick lately.

His Blobbiness has spoken!  (oh, just hit the arrow to play)

Maybe you should suggest he do a Tunes Tuesday.

These word verifications are getting out of hand - my second word was upside down! How does one type upside down?
