Tuesday’s Tune ~ Sia Titanium ~I Heart Radio Live

You shout it out
But I can’t hear a word you say
I’m talking loud not saying much
I’m criticized but all your bullets ricochet
You shoot me down, but I get up

I’m bulletproof nothing to lose
Fire away, fire away
Ricochet, you take your aim
Fire away, fire away
You shoot me down but I won’t fall, I am titanium
You shoot me down but I won’t fall
I am titanium

Cut me down
But it’s you who has further to fall
Ghost town, haunted love
Raise your voice, sticks and stones may break my bones
I’m talking loud not saying much

I’m bulletproof nothing to lose
Fire away, fire away
Ricochet, you take your aim
Fire away, fire away
You shoot me down but I won’t fall
I am titanium
You shoot me down but I won’t fall
I am titanium, I am titanium, I am titanium

Stone-hard, machine gun
Firing at the ones who run
Stone-hard, those bulletproof guns

You shoot me down but I won’t fall, I am titanium
You shoot me down but I won’t fall, I am titanium
You shoot me down but I won’t fall, I am titanium
You shoot me down but I won’t fall, I am titanium
I am titanium

Tuesday’s Tune ~ Adele – When We Were Young

I love this song. It reminds me of raising my (now adult) child and growing with him. I was the last of 6 kids and by the time I came into the world, whether it was because of their burn out, absence of interest (more on THAT someday) or lack of money for camera film & processing, there were frightfully few pictures of me as a baby or a child save for school pictures. I knew of two.

When my son came into the world, I documented everything. Every freaking thing. I have 1000s of pictures of him and would have the same of video if I could have afforded a camera. But alas I could not so I kept on pointing and click, click, clicking.

He flew the nest 3 years ago after obtaining his degrees. He lives 7 hours away and soon 1000s as he is moving overseas. Whenever he comes to visit, the clicking resumes. And still, he smiles.

They are, and will always be, my most prized possessions.

Tuesday’s Tune~ The Person Who Invented Rock and Roll

And it ain’t a dude!

Introducing:

SISTER ROSETTA THARPE- Born March 20, 1915                                                                                                                                                   Passed on to heaven October 9, 1973

Sister Rosetta Tharpe 4

Sister Rosetta early in adult careerSister Rosetta Tharpe 2.jfif

Sister Rosetta Manchester England 1964

Let’s hear a bit, yes?

After that you want to know more about Rosetta don’t you? I know, I know ! When I first learned of Sister Rosetta years ago, I could not get enough. I had to find out everything I possibly could! I mean, previous to that I, like many, I considered the inventor of rock & roll, Chuck Berry – The FATHER of rock and roll. He’s still completely deserving of the title of Father, but inventor? NAH. That title & honor belongs to Sister Rosetta and I believe that Mr. Berry would agree. He often spoke highly of her; how she was an inspiration to him throughout his life and career.

When you have a little time to relax, pour yourself a nice libation – hard or soft-and enjoy this documentary of Rosetta’s life.  Super interesting. Don’t get too comfy though. She will have you out of your seat and dancing in no time! Enjoy.

 

 

 

Tuesday’s Tune~ “Renegades” – X Ambassadors

My favorite lyric from this song:

Long live the pioneers
Rebels and mutineers
Go forth and have no fear
Come close and lend an ear

**********************************************

Remember, tomorrow is never guaranteed.  So go forth; take your passion, kick ass and never look back no matter what may come your way.  There really isn’t any alternative! XO

“Renegades”

Run away-ay with me
Lost souls in revelry
Running wild and running free
Two kids, you and meAnd I said hey
Hey, hey, hey
Living like we’re renegades
Hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey
Living like we’re renegades
Renegades, renegadesLong live the pioneers
Rebels and mutineers
Go forth and have no fear
Come close and lend an ear

And I said hey
Hey, hey, hey
Living like we’re renegades
Hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey
Living like we’re renegades
Renegades, renegades

So, all hail the underdogs
All hail the new kids
All hail the outlaws
Spielbergs and Kubricks

It’s our time to make a move
It’s our time to make amends
It’s our time to break the rules
Let’s begin…

And I said hey
Hey, hey, hey
Living like we’re renegades
Hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey
Living like we’re renegades
Renegades, renegades
