Boogie Shoes

I once listened to an interview with KC of KC and the Sunshine Band. He was asked about his music and inspiration for it. He simply stated that coming out of the turbulent times of the early 1970s after the Vietnam War, he wanted to make music that made people happy, music to take them away from troubled times, music to enjoy.

KC struck gold.

Boogie Shoes – KC and the Sunshine Band – 1975

Thank you KC, you made this man’s childhood all the more enjoyable.
Who might our next musical inspiration be?

La Vie En Rose

Majestic Beauty

La Vie En Rose – Grace Jones – 1977

From Wikipedia: -The song’s title can be translated as “Life in happy hues”, “Life seen through happy lenses”, or “Life in rosy hues”; its literal meaning is “Life in Pink.”-

No matter the circumstance or challenge, we are always blessed with a choice of how we each view and interpret that very moment. Choose wisely.

A little night music

As the sun sets over the pacific just to the west of where I sit right now, I’m going to kick back and enjoy this live version of She’s Gone.

She’s Gone – Live – 1976 – Hall & Oates

Damn John Oates is fine.
