Let’s Take A Moment Day 377

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 still facing a serious situation but a new year gives us hope for the new days, seasons, opportunities & moments ahead. Still, music is something that will never change for me. It is my refuge, the most comforting part of my life & the one thing I consistently count on. So until a more normal semblance of life 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.

When most people think about Dan Fogelberg, they recall his ballads: “Leader Of The Band”, “Same Old Lang Syne” and “Longer”. I was more of a fan of his edgier side. In 1978 he collaborated with jazz flautist Tim Weisberg on the album, Twin Sons Of Different Mothers. It featured the top 30 hit,  “The Power of Gold” which I really enjoyed. But it was Fogelberg’s 1982 single that really stood out as a favorite for me.

Oh, Oh, if I had you beside me
Then I just might sleep through the night
Your love is the promise that guides me
All of the days of my life
“.

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

Stay well.

  1. He was a talented songwriter. If my memory isn’t playing tricks, he injured his hand badly and had to relearn how to play the guitar (much time later after this recording). During that time he continued to write songs but has virtually stopped performing or even recording these songs. I could check out this memory, but that’s too much work! lol
