ATF: Mondays

This series will include as many of my all-time favorite (ATF) tunes as I can get my grubby little hands on (so to speak).  Now, each one included in each edition will have some connection with the other—albeit only as a figment of my imagination, but they will not be numbered.  For I just cannot bring myself to rate some higher than others.  So, this will not be a countdown, but if you are enjoying them as much as I do, it won’t matter.  Besides, with no countdown, this could go on forever and ever!  Oh, and despite the fact that there is absolutely no way your musical tastes could be as exquisite as mine, I welcome any suggestions you might dare to make.  For I am, after all, quite magnanimous by nature.



Long Long Way From Home
Foreigner
It was a Monday
A day like any other day
I left the small town
For the apple in decay
It was my destiny
It’s what we needed to do
They were telling me
I’m telling you

I was inside
Looking outside
The millions of faces
But still I’m alone
Waiting
I was over waitin’
Paying a penance
I was longing for home
I’m looking out
For the two of us
I hope we’ll be here
When they’re through with us

I was inside
Looking outside
Oh the millions of faces
But still I’m alone
Waiting
I was over waiting
I could feel the tension
I was longing for home
I’m looking out
For the two of us
And I hope we’ll be here
When they’re through with us
I’m coming home

Monday
Sad sad Monday
She’s waiting for me
But I’m a long long way from home
Sad sad Monday
She’s waiting for me
But I’m a long long way from home
Sad sad Monday
Ah she’s waiting for me
But I’m a long long way from home


Come Monday
Jimmy Buffett
Headin' up to San Francisco
For the Labor Day weekend show
I've got my hushpuppies on
I guess I never was meant for glitter rock and roll
And honey I didn't know
That I'd be missin' you so

Come Monday
It'll be all right
Come Monday
I'll be holdin' you tight
I’ve spent four lonely days in a brown L. A. haze
And I just want you back by my side

Yes it's been quite a summer
Rent-a-cars
And westbound trains
And now you're off on vacation
Somethin' you tried to explain
And darlin' it's I love you so
That's the reason I just let you go

Come Monday
It'll be all right
Come Monday
I'll be holdin' you tight
I’ve spent four lonely days in a brown L. A. haze
And I just want you back by my side

I can't help it honey
You're that much a part of me now
Remember that night in Montana
When we said there'd be no room for doubt

I hope you're enjoyin' the scenery
I know that it's pretty up there
We can go hikin' on Tuesday
With you I'd walk anywhere
California has worn me quite thin
I just can't wait to see you again

Come Monday
It'll be all right
Come Monday
I'll be holdin' you tight
I’ve spent four lonely days in a brown L. A. haze
And I just want you back by my side
I’ve spent four lonely days in a brown L. A. haze
And I just want you back by my side

A Sunday Drive

Back during our childhood, our parents would often load up my brother and me after Sunday morning church services for a leisurely drive around where we lived.  Even though we were seeing mostly familiar sights, it was still good to see them again, and this is why “A Sunday Drive” sounded about right for the name of a series revisiting familiar sites that are well worth seeing again and again.  The link below the image is to the site itself, and the image is linked to the post it was first included in here.

Sites To See #422

The SOLE purpose of this series is to help call attention to sites that I think many would find most interesting—in one way or another.  Just to be clear, inclusion in this series is not necessarily meant as an endorsement, and I have included sites that I found rather disturbing.  The link below each image is to the site itself, and each image is linked to the particular post from which it was taken when applicable.  Please, go see for yourself.  Oh, and as of August 10, 2012, I will be no longer including sites that have auto-play and word verification engaged.

Learning to Fly
Pink Floyd
Into the distance
A ribbon of black
Stretched to the point
Of no turning back
A flight of fancy
On a windswept field
Standing alone
My senses reeled
Fatal attraction
Is holding me fast
How can I escape
This irresistible grasp

Can't keep my eyes
From the circling sky
Tongue-tied
And twisted
Just an earth-bound misfit
I

Ice is forming
On the tips of my wings
Unheeded warnings
I thought I thought of everything
No navigator
To find my way home
Unladened
Empty
And turned to stone

The soul intention
Is learning to fly
Condition grounded
But determined to try
God keep my eyes
From the circling sky
Tongue-tied
And twisted
Just an earth-bound misfit
I

Friction lock.
Set.
Mixture,
Rich.
Propellers
Fully forward.
Flaps.
Set, 10 degrees.
Engine gauges and suction.
Check.
Mixture set to maximum percent.
Recheck.
Flight instruments.
Altimeters.
Check both.
On.
Navigation lights.
On.
Strobes.
On.
Confirm 3-8-Echo ready for departure.
Hello again, this is now 129.4.
129.4, it's to go.
You may commence your takeoff, winds over 10 knots.
3-8-Echo.
Easy on the brakes. Take it easy. It’s gonna roll this time.
Just hand the power gradually, and it...

Above the planet
On a wing and a prayer
My grubby halo
A vapor trail in the empty air
Across the clouds
I see my shadow fly
Out of the corner
Of my watering eye
To dream unthreatened
By the morning light
Could blow this soul right through
The roof of the night

There's no sensation
To compare with this
Suspended animation
A state of bliss
Can't keep my mind
From the circling sky
Tongue-tied
And twisted
Just an earth-bound misfit
I



Learn to Fly
Foo Fighters
Run and tell all of the angels
This could take all night
Think I need a devil to help me
Get things right
Hook me up a new revolution
‘Cause this one is a lie
We sat around laughin’
And watched the last one die

Now I'm lookin’ to the sky to save me
Lookin’ for a sign of life
Lookin’ for somethin’ to help me
Burn out bright
I'm lookin’ for a complication
Lookin’ ‘cause I'm tired of lyin’
Make my way back home
When I learn to fly high

I think I'm done nursin’ patience
It can wait one night
I'd give it all away
If you give me one last try
We'll live happily ever trapped
If you just save my life
Run and tell the angels
That everything's alright

I'm lookin’ to the sky to save me
Lookin’ for a sign of life
Lookin’ for somethin’ to help me
Burn out bright
I'm lookin’ for a complication
Lookin’ ‘cause I'm tired of tryin’
Make my way back home
When I learn to fly high
Make my way back home
When I learn to

Fly along with me
I can't quite make it alone
Try to make this life my own
And fly along with me
I can't quite make it alone
Try to make this life my own

I'm lookin’ to the sky to save me
Lookin’ for a sign of life
Lookin’ for somethin’ to help me
Burn out bright
I'm lookin’ for a complication
Lookin’ ‘cause I'm tired of tryin’
Make my way back home
When I learn to
I'm lookin’ to the sky to save me
Lookin’ for a sign of life
Lookin’ for somethin’ to help me
Burn out bright
I'm lookin’ for a complication
Lookin’ ‘cause I'm tired of tryin’
Make my way back home
When I learn to fly high
Make my way back home
When I learn to fly
Make my way back home
When I learn to

Stop Moosin' Around!



Why do you let that keep happening to you?  Think of your family.  People talk.  It’s embarrassing!

High Enough
Damn Yankees
I don't wanna hear about it
Anymore
It's a shame I've got to live without you
Anymore
There's a fire in my heart
A poundin’ in my brain
It's drivin’ me crazy
We don't need to talk about it
Anymore
Yesterday's just a memory
Can we close the door
I just made one mistake
I didn't know what to say
When you called me baby

Don't say goodnight
Say you're gonna stay forever
Oh whoa
All the way

Can you take me high enough
To fly me over
Fly me over
Yesterday
Can you take me high enough
It's never over
Yesterday’s just a memory
Yesterday’s just a memory

I don’t wanna live without you
Anymore
Can’t you see I’m in misery
And you know for sure
I would love and die for you
And I’d know just what to do
When you call me baby

Don't say goodbye
Say you're gonna stay forever
Oh whoa
All the way

Can you take me high enough
Can you fly me over
Fly me over
Yesterday
Can you take me high enough
It's never over
Yesterday’s just a memory away

I was runnin’ for the door
The next thing I remember
I was runnin’ back for more
Yeah
Yeah yeah yeah

Don't say goodbye
Say you're gonna stay forever
Oh whoa
All the way
All the way
All the way
Yeah
Yeah

Can you take me high enough
Can you fly me over
Fly me over
Yesterday
Can you take me high enough
It's never over
Whoa
Whoa
Whoa
Whoa
Can you take me high enough
Won’t you fly me over
Won’t you fly me over
Yesterday
Can you take me high enough
It's never over
Whoa
Whoa
Whoa
Whoa



Free Fallin’
Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers
She's a good girl
Loves her mama
Loves Jesus
And America too
She's a good girl
Is crazy 'bout Elvis
Loves horses
And her boyfriend too

It's a long day
Livin’ in Reseda
There's a freeway
Runnin’ through the yard
Now I'm a bad boy
‘Cause I don't even miss her
I'm a bad boy
For breakin’ her heart

Now I'm free
Free fallin’
Yeah I'm free
Free fallin’

All the vampires
Walkin’ through the valley
Move west down
Ventura Boulevard
And all the bad boys
Are standin’ in the shadows
And the good girls
Are home with broken hearts

Now I’m free
Free fallin’
Yeah I'm free
Free fallin’

Free fallin’
Now I’m
Free Fallin’
Now I’m
Free fallin’
Now I’m
Free fallin’
Now I’m

I wanna glide down
Over Mulholland
I wanna write her
Name in the sky
Gonna free fall
Out into nothin’
Gonna leave this
World for a while

Now I’m free
Free fallin’
Now I’m
Free fallin’
Now I’m
Free Fallin’
Free fallin’
Now I’m
Free fallin’
Now I’m
Yeah I’m free
Free fallin’
Now I’m
Free fallin’
Now I’m
Free fallin’
Free fallin’
Now I’m
Free fallin’
Now I’m

Free Fallin’
Now I’m
Free fallin’
Now I’m
Now I’m free
Free fallin’
Oh
Free fallin’
Now I’m
Free fallin’
Now I’m
Free fallin’
Free fallin’
Now I’m
Free fallin’
Now I’m free
Free fallin’
Now I’m
Free fallin
Oh
Now I’m
Free fallin’
Now I’m
Free fallin’
Free fallin’
Now I’m
Free fallin’
Now I’m
