Music Monday: Eagles

 

I love this group. They are in my top 10. Here’s one of my favorites. Got to love the harmonies and anytime there is a banjo, I always smile.

Have a great week. It’s the little things that make us smile.

Music Monday: The Vespers

Here’s a fun little group to start your week off. The Vespers started in 2009. A set of brothers and sisters from Nashville, TN. I think you will like them.

Have a great week.

Music Monday: Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings

(Wikipedia) Sharon Jones & the Dap Kings are an American funk/soul band signed to Daptone Records. They are spearheads of a revivalist movement that aims to capture the essence of funk/soul music as it was at its height in the mid-1960’s to mid-1970’s. Part of the way this is achieved is to shun modern digital recording methods in favor of using traditional analog recording equipment. In December 2014, the band was nominated for their first Grammy, in the Best R&B Album of the Year category for Give The People What They Want.

Some great music to start your week off. If you don’t know who Sharon Jones is, please listen. She will blow your mind. She has a natural gift of the late 60’s Motown/funk and soul. Pure magic.

Have a great week and remember to look for the little things that bring a smile to your face.

Music Monday: Ben Harper

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:     “Ohio” is a protest song and counterculture anthem written and composed by Neil Young in reaction to the Kent State shootings of May 4, 1970, and performed by Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young.[1] It was released as a single, backed with Stephen Stills’s “Find the Cost of Freedom”, peaking at number 14 on the US Billboard Hot 100. Although a live version of “Ohio” was included on the group’s 1971 double album Four Way Street, the studio versions of both songs did not appear on an LP until the group’s compilation So Far was released in 1974. The song also appeared on the Neil Young compilation albums Decade, released in 1977, and Greatest Hits, released in 2004.

This Ben Harper cover of “Ohio” is fantastic. I hope you enjoy.

Have a great week. Try and be grateful for the little things you have. It all has come with a price. Let’s be happy with what we have and not sad for what we don’t have.

Lyrics: OHIO

Tin soldiers and Nixon coming,
We’re finally on our own.
This summer I hear the drumming,
Four dead in Ohio.

Gotta get down to it
Soldiers are cutting us down
Should have been done long ago.
What if you knew her
And found her dead on the ground
How can you run when you know?

Gotta get down to it
Soldiers are cutting us down
Should have been done long ago.
What if you knew her
And found her dead on the ground
How can you run when you know?

Tin soldiers and Nixon coming,
We’re finally on our own.
This summer I hear the drumming,
Four dead in Ohio.

Music Monday: David Paul Sherman

David 2013

I want to introduce my Cousin David. David, his brother and mon/dad lived next door to my family till we were all grown. It was great having 2 extra brothers, even though they teased my sister and me to death. Wonderful memories growing up next door to your cousins.

Davis is a pastor and a singer/songwriter. He is doing some great things preaching in his new church and sharing his love for music.

He has some beautiful lyrics about his family and the rest of us. I thought I should do a shameless plug for him and share what he is doing.

He performs all over the state of Ohio and usually records his music in Tennessee. He was written songs that have been sung by Alabama, Charlie Pride, Barbara Fairchild and a few more. David has shared a stage with some of the greats such as Ricky Skaggs and Loretta Lynn. Not too shabby for a boy raised in a small town from Ohio.

Love you David and so proud to call you my cousin.

I hope you enjoy and I’m sure he would love for you to check out his music. Just click on the link below and you can listen for free.

Reverbnation page:  You will need to join (free) to listen to his music. Well worth the effort.

Music Monday: Aunt Janet

I was taking photos of sunsets this past week. And this photo reminded me of Aunt Janet when she lived on the farm. Love and miss you Aunt Janet.

Your response from the last family music post was amazing. I had to do another one this week.

Have a wonderful Monday and look for the little things that bring a smile to your face.

 When He Was On The Cross

I’m not here to boast or brag
I’m nothing on my own
I make mistakes, often slip
Just common flesh and bones

But Ill prove someday just what I say
I’m of a special kind
When He was on the cross
I was on His mind

A look of love was on His face
The thorns on His head
The blood was on that scarlet robe
And stained a crimson red

Though His eyes were on the crowd that day
He looked ahead in time
Cause when He was on the cross
I was on His mind

He knew me, yet He loved me
He whose glory makes the Heaven shine
So unworthy of such mercy
Yet when He was on the cross
I was on His mind

Yet when He was on the cross
I was on His mind

Songwriters
RONNIE HINSON, MIKE PAYNE
