Sunrise, October 17...


The morning playlist continues:



Kay said...

Tommy James, yes! It’s a beautiful day to be alive.

Lincolntf said...

I'm about to head out to do "Project #2" for my TV Production class. Shooting an interview and B-roll at the workplace of a graduate of the school (it's a Tech college, the idea is to make a 3 minute video package showing how the specific program at school got her the job in her chosen field). I get to be Ron Burgundy for a couple hours.

Oso Negro said...

Danny’s Song was quite the panty dropper when I was a kid. Perhaps Meade got lucky this morning!

tcrosse said...

I saw Tommy James and the Shondells at the Memorial Union Great Hall many years ago. Can't remember the occasion. Fasching?

Meade said...

"Perhaps Meade got lucky this morning!"

Meade has been lucky every morning for the last 3727 mornings.

Meade said...

But then who's counting?

BleachBit-and-Hammers said...

Hey Bulldog is one of my favorite Beatles songs.

Marcus said...

Led by Hey Bulldog, that playlist is none too shabby


Thinking of playing it on YouTube right now

Standing in the cold twilight, 
facing the horizon, anticipating 
the glorious moment of Light's triumph,
darkness defeated, and
the hope and promise of a New Day fulfilled

We were made to seek and experience glory,
so then be moved to praise, then proclamation.
It is the food for our very human yet immortal soul.
To witness, to be charged! to testify,
magnify, and extol

Here this glimpse of glory is fleeting,
like lightning's flashes, or the Morning's rays.
Eternal glory is born from majesty to serve its royal master--
but...  Who is this King of Glory?
the Everlasting God, True Light, the Ancient of Days

"So we have the prophetic word made more sure, to which you do well to attend,  
as to a lamp shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts."
  2 Peter 1;19

Sing it, girl!
Nicole C. Mullen

... or maybe, if it's all an accidental collision of atoms, neurochemical impulses and irrational conditioning...
"You can't, except in the lowest animal sense, say, be in love with someone, if you know (and keep on remembering) that all the beauties both of their person and of their character are a momentary and accidental pattern produced by the collision of atoms, and that your own response to them is only a sort of psychic phosphorescence arising from the behaviour of your genes. You can’t go on getting any very serious pleasure from music if you know and remember that its air of significance is pure illusion, that you like it only because your nervous system is irrationally conditioned to like it. You may still, in the lowest sense, have a ‘good time’; but just in so far as it becomes very good, just in so far as it ever threatens to push you on from cold sensuality into real warmth and enthusiasm and joy, so afar you will be forced to feel the hopeless disharmony between your own emotions and the universe in which you really live." --C.S.Lewis**

Shouting Thomas said...

I’m playing the Ave Maria and Chopin’s Waltz in C# Minor, among others.

On my piano.

Later, I’ll move on to Bach’s “Eight little Preludes and Fugues” for organ.

Owen said...

Great picture. And it’s nice to know that another fan of Tommy James and the Shondelles is spreading the good vibrations today. I played the grooves off those 45’s back in the day. “Crimson in Clover,” “Crystal Blue Persuasion,”...

Churchy LaFemme: said...

I tend to feel about mornings the way Van Morrison does..

Shouting Thomas said...

I’ve played in every kind of popular music band.

In my old age, I’ve returned to playing classical and sacred music.

What a relief! Classical and sacred music offer infinite melodic and chordal variety, not to mention intellectual challenge.

I’ve mounted portraits of Chopin, Bach and Beethoven over my piano. Portraits of Tchaikovsky, Saint-Saëns, Haydn and Mozart over my organ.

This is the answer to the stupid leftist rant that we white folks have no culture. We are descended from gods.

tcrosse said...

Portraits of Tchaikovsky, Saint-Saëns, Haydn and Mozart over my organ.

Classier than a chapstick.

Scott Adams's periscope videos recently have been crapping out every few minutes. You've got to restart, which isn't a problem, except you have to stay by the computer to listen instead of piping it outside to work in the yard.

A: Good excuse not to do yard work.

B: Wait until it's over and download the mp3.

I find I generally can't stand to listen. That's not Adams specific, I always just feel like I am spinning my wheels watching any kind of video or listening to a lecture. Give me a transcript and I'm fine..

Dawn comes up like thunder over Mandalay Bay. Madison not so much.

On the road to Mandalay,
Where the flyin'-fishes play,
An' the dawn comes up like thunder outer China 'crost the Bay!

Original Mike said...

Feel good story of the morning. WATCH: Furious London Commuters Pull Climate Change Activists Off Train

Ingachuck'stoothlessARM said...

James:I’ll say at the end of “Sweet Cherry Wine”, which is about the blood of Jesus, ‘Keep looking up. Jesus is coming.'”

Ross: …and another one of your songs, “Crystal Blue Persuasion...”

James: Yeah, that was about becoming a Christian. People say, "Is that about drugs?" I say, “No, it was about Jesus.”


Bay Area Guy said...

The morning playlist needs more Barry White.....

Narr said...

CS Lewis was always moving when describing his own limitations.

Who TF is CS Lewis to tell me what I can and cannot feel, and why?

Lotsa humble in that toff

traditionalguy said...

This AM we needed Baby It's Cold Outside. The AM temp was in the low 40s. That is a 30 degree drop.

mccullough said...

Ann Althouse said...

I like the spoken word ending of "Hey Bulldog":

Hey man, what's that boy?
What do you say?
I said "woof!"
You know anymore?
Wooaah ha ha ha!
You've got it, that's it, you had it!
That's it, man, woo!
That's it! You've got it!
Don't look at me man, I only have ten children
Ah ho! Ha ha ha ha ha ha!
Quiet boy, quiet!

Ann Althouse said...

"Quiet boy, quiet! Okay, Quiet!"... is a good follow-up to "Housequake," with its "Shut up, already. Damn!"

Ann Althouse said...

Sometimes for the morning soundtrack, I listen to the beginning of Wagner's "Das Rheingold." It goes great with sunrise, but what's going on there is I've committed myself to the entire Ring Cycle next spring — 4 nights, 17 hours or something. Trying to get familiar enough to be able to hear the details. But I keep starting at the beginning. I'll never get anywhere.

WhoKnew said...

I'm an album guy, not a playlister. This morning it was two Boz Scaggs albums: "Speak Low" and "But Beautiful". He's better this century than he was during the last one.

Narr said...

Prof, there's a CD. The "Ring" Without Words--very note Wagner's, no filler--from TELARC.

Maazel and the Berliner Phil. Really good for previewing (pre-hearing?) the motifs etc etc for the full circus.

Nice playlist, Dolan. We do OK here, but Michelle isn't in the rotation yet

madAsHell said...

Has anyone else noticed that the Lincoln Memorial has been removed from the back of the penny?...or do I need to get out more?

Richard Dolan said...

The Met put on a Ring cycle last year, and we went to Walkure and Siegfried. The sets leave a lot to be desired but the performances were terrific. The Met is only doing Dutchman this season, so no Ring in NYC. Where are you seeing it?
