~Favorite Sweet Songs ~





Lou Reed - Sweet Jane



Standing on the corner
Suitcase is in my hand
Jack is in his corset, and Jane is in her vest
I'm in a rock 'n' roll band

Ridin' in a Stutz bear cat, Jim
Those were different times
The poets they studied rules of verse
And those ladies rolled their eyes

You know you sweet Jane
Oh now baby, sweet Jane
Oh yes sweet Jane

Now Jack, he is a banker
And Jane, baby she is a clerk
And both of them save their money honey
When they come home from work

Sittin' there by the fire
The radio does play the classical music there, kid
The march of the wooden soldiers
And you can, you can hear Jack say

You know he saying, "Sweet Jane
Ooh baby, sweet Jane
Ah yes sweet Jane"

Some people like to go out dancing
Whereas other people like us got to work
Gotta watch me now and there's even some evil mothers
They'll tell you life's just dirt

That the pretty women never really faint
That villains always blink their eyes
That children are the only ones who blush
And that life, life is just to die, but I want to tell you something

Anyone who has ever had a heart
Oh oh wouldn't turn around and break it half
Anyone who has ever played a part
They're not gonna turn around and hate it

You know they're singin', "Sweet Jane
Ah sweet Jane


*Video*



Lynyrd Skynyrd - Sweet Home Alabama


Big wheels keep on turning
Carry me home to see my kin
Singing songs about the Southland
I miss Alabamy once again
And I think it's a sin, yes

Well I heard mister Young sing about her
Well, I heard ole Neil put her down
Well, I hope Neil Young will remember
A Southern man don't need him around anyhow

Sweet home Alabama
Where the skies are so blue
Sweet Home Alabama
Lord, I'm coming home to you

In Birmingham they love the governor
Now we all did what we could do
Now Watergate does not bother me
Does your conscience bother you?
Tell the truth

Sweet home Alabama
Where the skies are so blue
Sweet Home Alabama
Lord, I'm coming home to you
Here I come Alabama

Now Muscle Shoals has got the Swampers
And they've been known to pick a song or two
Lord they get me off so much
They pick me up when I'm feeling blue
Now how about you?

Sweet home Alabama
Where the skies are so blue
Sweet Home Alabama
Lord, I'm coming home to you

Sweet home Alabama
Oh sweet home baby
Where the skies are so blue
And the governor's true
Sweet Home Alabama
Lordy
Lord, I'm coming home to you
Yea, yea

Also "sweet" can be used to describe the style of a particular musician, such as Miles Davis.

Have Fun and thanks Fatima!

“Sweet Cherry Wine” from Tommy James and the Shondells was a great drinkin’ song in high school for some reason...

But Sweet City Woman by the Stampeders (from Calgary eh) and Sweet Blindness by the Fifth Dimension featuring the wonderful voice of Marilyn McCoo get my vote.

And just to prove I’m not completely out of touch, Bittersweet Symphony by The Verve is a standard from my spin classes.

A Difficult Place

September 20, 2013

When a sudden change in technology made his job obsolete, a highly trained scientist found himself working in a fast-food restaurant. One evening after our Bible study he described the situation as difficult and humbling. He said, “One good thing I can say is that the young people there seem very interested in my faith.” A member of the group responded, “I admire you for being humble. I know your faith must have something to do with it.”

Like my acquaintance, Philip may have wondered why God would pull him off an assignment in Samaria (Acts 8:4-8) and plop him in the middle of the desert (v.26). But then he found that the Ethiopian needed help understanding the Scriptures (vv.27-35), and his place made sense.

When Jesus promised He would never leave us alone (Matt. 28:20; Heb. 13:5), He meant in the hard times as well as in the good times. Our mission in the difficult seasons of life is to work or serve remembering we are doing it for God, and then to watch as God works to accomplish His purposes.

Look for God in your difficult place and discover what He’s doing in and through you there.

Disappointment—His appointment,
No good thing will He withhold;
From denials oft we gather
Treasures of His love untold. —Young
What’s better than answers to our why questions? Trusting a good God who has His reasons.

Read: Acts 8:4-8,26-35

I will never leave you nor forsake you. —Hebrews 13:5
Bible in a Year:
Ecclesiastes 4-6; 2 Corinthians 12

I had never heard that one before. “Brown-Eyed Girl” got a lot of airplay on Boss Radio KHJ in 1967.

Into the Mystic -Van Morrison

Behind the mystic music: Van the Man

A Christian interpretation of the lyrics:

“We were born before the wind” — Adam was created or “born” before the wind, which came about after his fall from grace, when the world received its curse.

“Also younger than the sun” — The sun was made on the fourth day of creation, Adam on the sixth.

“Ere the bonnie boat was one/As we sailed into the mystic” — According to one interpretation of the traditional Irish Skye Boat Song, the line “Carry the lad that is born to be king” refers to the Christ child; thus, believers were “one” with Christ as they “sailed” on the “bonnie boat” into the “mystic,” or wondrous life.

“Hark, now hear the sailors cry” — Man has fallen, everything has changed, he feels cold, all is not well. The people who are “sailing” through time “cry” out in agony.

“Smell the sea and feel the sky” — There was no rain before the fall. Streams came up from the Earth and watered the ground, but now man could feel the rain from the sky and smell the now-raging sea.

“Let your soul and spirit fly into the mystic” — Fallen man is doomed to an eternal life apart from God unless God’s grace is received, letting his “soul and spirit fly” to the “mystic.”

“And when that fog horn blows, I will be coming home” — The Bible states: “The Lord himself will come down from heaven … with the trumpet call (fog horn) of God.”

“I want to hear it, I don’t have to fear it” — Welcoming the call to come home to Christ.

“I want to rock your gypsy soul/Just like way back in the days of old” — Enjoy life as intended, in the “days of old” before the “fall.”

“Then magnificently we will float, into the mystic” — “Float” those raging seas, now calmed; the perfectly wonderful life with our “bonnie boat” continues.

I liked KHJ because they seemed to feature fewer ads and less DJ chatter. However, in spring of 1967, I discovered KWIZ, to which I listened almost exclusively. Broadcasting at 1480 kilocycles from Santa Ana’s Willowick Golf Course, KWIZ blasted Orange County and vicinity with oldies as well as a few newies. My brother, who was into the latest music, preferred KRLA.
