What to listen to on a Saturday night

I guess I have little inspiration to blog these days, so I write little and share music that is in my head. Well, gets stuck in my head really. I downed a pint before dinner tonight (Chinese take away from a nearby pub). Why downing a pint quickly before meal? Well, you'll see tomorrow (and understand if you read French, ha ha, ha). And there was American Pie playing in the background. I couldn't help but sing it a bit. It is the kind of song you listen to when you have a drink in the stomach. And on a Saturday evening. This is the kind of music I was listening to with my Italian friends when we were drinking in instead of going out. This or another one. But it is American Pie that was stuck in my head tonight. Although I cannot even pretend I know all the lyrics. Heck, I know zilch about Don McLean now. And the song is about a time I never lived, a youth that was never mine. Yet like any good song it appeals to all young people, or all people who were young.

Another great classic, you have an "old soul" - whatever that means :-)
Hopefully the music never dies as there is so much inspiration found within.

I loved this song until Madonna murdered it, I remember early on learning to play it on guitar. But it is a great song, great Saturday night soul food:-)
