Workin' Fur The Weekend

HaRoooooo! It is HERE: Friday!!!
I'm glad the Khyraese Khlass was soooo well attended! One never knows when there will be a pop khwiz!
I appreciated all the kind woos and purrs about the award and the blog!
I'll turn this over to Mom now so she khan get started on her musikh stuff!
Khyra's Mom here with you fur U's! Let's jump right into it:
1) U2 - too many songs to even begin to choose - just visit their myspace page fur a sampling of them ;
2) Now fur a very good friend of mine from the Kholumbus Ohio area - akhtually Cirkhleville - Tom is one helluva ukelele player. He is also a retired skhhool teacher that from what I khan gather from his blog and blog khomments is one of THOSE teachers that students rekhall furever fur having touched their lives.
I first 'met' Tom in December of 2004 and akhtually met him in March of 2005. Another furiend of mine was on the bill fur a night of folkie type musikh at a shi sha lounge in Kholumbus. I took a major roadtrip (it was in my pre-Khyra days) that had me depart here around noon on Saturday - met up with another furiend in Kholumbus around 6pm - Pam and I grabbed dinner at a great Ethiopian place - shared stories and such before the show started. Pam was also one of the performers. The five performers so kicked fluffy butt that night! It was truly a once in a lifetime experience. I hit the road about 3am Sunday and settled bakhk 'here' about 1030am or so - still high on the khombined musikhal and furiendship buzz. I khan still see the night as if it was happening right now. As yes, enough reminiscing (that would be a Little River Band song by the way);
4) Utopia (along with Todd Rundgren) ;
AND LAST BUT FAR FROM LEAST...
5) Uncle Tupelo ! ! ! Where to start? Here is their Wikipedia page. I was introduced to them in December of '04. I had heard of Son Volt - and enjoyed their musikh - but hadn't heard of UT. WOW, was I missing some good stuff! Here, in no partikhular order is an assortment of their musikh.
I'll start with Give Back the Key to My Heart. The sekhond verse of this song is sung by Doug Sahm who sounds amazingly like the special person that introduced me to UT. Another song of theirs I love is Graveyard Shift - a shift I've worked a lot of in my life - with lots of great memories! Next would be Whiskey Bottle -with some special words in there - not forever, just for now. Finally - although I khould keep going - is Life Worth Livin'
If you want to hear some great tunes with FANTASTIKH lyrikhs, please do chekhk out their musikh by starting with what is available on youtube.
*******
Time fur me to ask: what is on YOUR 'U' list?
Have a great day - please be safe heading into the weekend!
