Let’s Take A Moment Day 413

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.

In May 1974 Led Zeppelin established their own company, Swan Song Records. A month later, the self-titled debut album by Bad Company was released on that label. It hit #1 on the albums chart for one week in September of that year.

If there was anyone who had not already heard the unbelievably soulful powerful voice of lead singer Paul Rodgers when he was a member of Free, they were about to be completely enraptured by his talent & the musicianship of the band as a whole. Today’s song was the album & the label’s first single. It was released in August 1974 & became a Top Ten hit later that year.

Well it’s late and I want love
Love that’s gonna break me in two
Don’t hang me up in your doorway
Don’t hang me up like you do
“.

Led Z

Stay well.
