My iPod Has Issues – Brain Drain

25 Jun

There are a lot of things going through my mind that I could write about. My opinion on the Confederate flag. Some issues in local politics. The events of everyday life. Heck, I could even give out the Yard Dog Award. However, I am not going to write about any of those things.

I am tired. My brain is tired.Brain

At the moment, the energy does not exist to create a post of any depth. As has been done before, I will take this opportunity to take the easy way out and let my iPod do all of the work.

It is now time to put it on shuffle and listen to what comes out.

“I Sang Dixie” by Dwight Yoakam

“Flash Light” by Parliament

“Broken Arrow” by Robbie Robertson

“She Shot A Hole In My Soul” by Clifford Curry

“Arranca” by Manzanita

“Sweet and Slow” by Carol Sloane

“He Went To Paris” by Jimmy Buffett

“Just Dropped In (To See What Condition My Condition Was In)” by Kenny Rogers and The First Edition

“Tiger Man” by Elvis Presley

“Texas” by Chris Rea

“Country Boy (You Got Your Feet In L.A.)” by Glen Campbell

“Dear Mr. Fantasy” by Traffic

“Safe From Harm” by Massive Attack

“Civil War” by Guns N’ Roses

“Sweet Baby James” by James Taylor

“Hurt” by Johnny Cash

“I’ve Been Loving You Too Long” by Otis Redding

“Lotta Love” by Nicolette Larson

Man, that wore my iPod out. I think we both need a good night’s sleep.

    I would be interested in your thoughts about the Confederate Flag?

      I may write about it later. I have to figure out if I really want to get into it.

        Fair point! When I was a boy growing up with American Civil War stories I just loved the Confederacy. It is an English thing, we always side with the underdog!

        Being from the south, we are surrounded by Confederate history. A lot of people put great personal investment in that history. I’ve never been one of those. However, those deep feelings are at the crux of the current issue.

        I studied US history at university. The issue of legality of secession always intrigued me.

    I wanna borrow your iPod for a road trip.

    • Rick June 26, 2015 at 04:12 #

      It’s built for a road trip. However, other iPods are in the car.

      • frontrangescribbles June 26, 2015 at 04:13 #

        I am impressed with your collection of music.

      • Rick June 26, 2015 at 04:17 #

        Thanks. It’s taken a long time to get it together. I need more stuff from this century.

    Funny that I ‘discovered’ The Band after listening to the eponymous Robbie Robertson album that “Broken Arrow” is part of. So it is, for me, a very special one.

    • Rick June 26, 2015 at 05:26 #

      It’s a great album, and I must confess that I heard that album before I realized he was in The Band.

      Chris Rea has a lot of good songs.
