A Little Pride Music

I was literally brought out of the closet and into a fully gay life with this 12 inch single permanently on the turntable in the first house I shared with my first lover, and a night on a gay club’s dance floor in the early 1980s wasn’t complete with a twirl to this fabulous number.

Festival – Don’t Cry For Me Argentina – 1979

We Are Family

One thing Anne Marie taught me was to have a good time.

Times get hard, politics can suck, shit happens, illness comes and it goes, we age, life isn’t always fair, work is …well work and sometimes all we can do is scream FUCK!

But

We can always stop and have a dance party.

She taught me to feel the pain, but to get up and change my attitude. To get up, get back to it and most of all have a good time. Life is short, why waste it?

She taught me that we can create our own family through our community.

Sister Sledge – We Are Family – 1979

Anne Marie, you are family!

Irish Celebration

Although I’ve posted this one some Saint Paddy’s Day a few years ago, we will post it again as Fearsome rather lines it.

Macklemore & Ryan Lewis – Irish Celebration – 2011

Have fun, share peace, spread happiness and have a Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Teenage Heartthrob

To say that I had a crush on KC when I was a pubescent boy into my teen years  is an understatement. To this day he still makes me swoon, then and even now.
I’ll just leave this fabulous throw back to 1977 right here.

KC & The Sunshine Band – Keep It Coming Love – Performance 1977

His goal was to create carefree fun music to uplift. He achieved his goal and then some. For that I am grateful.

Proud Mary Keep on Rollin’

President Biden has hit the road and he’s a rollin’.
Let’s keep the steam pumpin with not one, not two but three wonderful versions of a Fearsome favorite, Proud Mary.

Broken Peach – Proud Mary – 2017

Tina Turner – Proud Mary – 2009 (49 years after she first charted a tune in 1960 and 38 years after she & Ike made their cover of this tune famous, she is 70 years old in this performance.)

Creedence Clearwater Revival – Proud Mary – 1969

Keep on rollin’ Joe. You are doing a good man’s work and we support you.
