Thursday music

A while back I used to contribute to another blog called Billy Ocean Student Council Treasurer along with four other writers. Sadly the blog's life span was short as it's creator stopped contributing to the site and the rest followed suit. My posts weren't all that good anyways as my focus was still on Erik's Ramblings, but still I miss the five of us playing off each other creating what I thought was a good mix of thoughts.

I had a weekly contribution to the blog and that was Tuesday Music. Every Tuesday I would post a video of a song for readers to listen to. The genres varied as well as the quality of music, but I enjoyed it and readers seemed to get a kick out of it.

I've decided to take my idea and put it in Erik's Ramblings, but the only difference being that it will be on Thursdays instead of Tuesdays. Actually there will probably be more of a written description of the song, band, and/or why I thought of posting it. So back by no demand what so ever I'll share some music with the blogsphere, cause I'm a giver.

Let's get started now shall we?

Most music lovers have a certain song they listen to when they exit a relationship. Back in my younger years many broken hearted folk of my generation were listening to that damn song from that miserable Robin Hood movie or playing that Whitney Houston ballad over and over again. I was playing Metallica's 'Fade to Black' whenever heartache arose. Yeah I was kind of weird.

Lately though I've been listening to a song I loved as a child. It's from one of my favorite films and it's helped heal some recent wounds. I'll stop giving up too much information now and instead let you enjoy the song.

You, sir, are a big nostalgic softie.

I miss the salad days of BOSCT too, it was a good blog. But nothing lasts forever.

And I love that song. My favorite version was done by (I think) Ella Fitzgerald.
