Let’s Take A Moment Day 39

Hi everyone.  Hope you are all well and continue to stay that way during this global health crisis we are facing.  But in addition to protecting your physical wellness, what are you doing to stay mentally healthy today?

I know we are in a serious situation, but I need a break from the gloom, doom and bullying by way of hoarding. Music has always been my refuge and watching those beautiful Italians singing to each other from their balconies reaffirmed my belief that music is the answer. So until the old normal returns, I am going to share a song I listen to that helps me escape the current state of things, if only for a few minutes each day.  And if this helps anyone else, even better.

If you combined blue eyed soul with great story telling and a whole lot of cool, the result would be Boz Scaggs.  His “Silk Degrees” album dominated the airwaves in 1976, giving us hits like “Lido Shuffle”, “We’re All Alone” and today’s song.  Over the next few years more hits followed including “Miss Sun”, “Look What You’ve Done to Me” and “Heart of Mine”.  So many of Scaggs’ songs feature his fantastic guitar playing, great lyrics, fabulous hooks and his incredible voice.  I can spend days listening to all of his music but my love affair with him began with his first hit, thanks to one of the best bass lines I ever heard.  It earned Scaggs & the song’s co-writer David Paich the Grammy Award for Best R&B Song in 1977.

I do not own the rights to anything.  I am just sharing what I love and how I am coping with you.

Stay well.
