Video Connections, Come Away with Me

Watching Marty Stuart’s Tempted video for the umpteenth time, I noticed the ending has a lot in common with another video…

At 00:04:13, Marty wants to talk to the pretty girl but he’s ushered away and all he can do is shrug, smile, and wave.

SAME EXACT THING HAPPENS in this video by the Moody Blues!

Of course, the Moody Blues video is by far the better video because it contains not only a black and white flashback but a dance sequence and a lesson in personal development.

I have a strong feeling rock performers have been dragged away from pretty girls in other videos too. I just can’t think of any, can you?

In other news, I actually got a text message from that ETA I hooked up with WEEKS ago. He sent me a recording of either him or Elvis singing this lovely ditty:

Hello? You there?

Gosh, I’ve been quiet. It’s hard. I don’t want to write about business and when I am not conducting business, I am dating… or trying to date. And I did say that I don’t want to love blog this time which really throws a wrench into the whole blogging about my life thing I got going on here.

It seems like it’s either feast or famine. I am either dating tons of guys or I can’t find a date. Right now I am feasting. I’ve been out with a very nice gentleman who stands 6’7, with long, silky blond hair and thick mutton chop sideburns, 3 times. I’ve also gone out 3 times with a 50-something-year-old man with 4 kids, ages 17-24. Oddly enough, I met neither man on Match. But no more love blogging from me. That’s all I will say.

What else? I don’t know. I saw my favorite band, The Rivers Rockabilly Trio perform last Friday. It was fantastic! Danced my ass off.

Charmed Life

I really do feel like I live a charmed life. All day today I visualized myself at the free Micky Dolenz concert, front and center! I just knew I would find a spot, somehow. As it were, I left a bit late and found myself in a mob scene. I could clearly see where I should have been standing but I couldn’t reach it. I kept creeping closer and closer but my height makes it difficult to truly squeeze in. Just as I was thinking to myself, “I wonder what happened, I visualized this situation so perfectly!” my first client and friend, Chris, peeked his head out from right in front of the stage! He waved at me, cut through the crowd, whispered to the security guard who then motioned for me to come over and as I approached, the security guard said, “Sure your sister can join you, HAVE FUN!” Next thing I know, I am right where I was supposed to be, shaking my butt to MICKY DOLENZ, front and center!!!

I had so much fun! The only thing that would have made it better is if Lisa was there with me!

Female Improvements…

Mike’s genuine version…

Linda Ronstadt’s much more awesome version…

Which reminds me of this song, written by a man…

But performed better by a woman…

I think I just love the role reversal of a woman singing:

…I am not in the market
For a boy who wants to love only me
Yes, and I ain’t saying you ain’t pretty
All I’m saying is I’m not ready
For any person place or thing
Trying to pull the reins in on me

and

There’s so many times I’ve let you down
So many times I’ve played around
I tell you now, they don’t mean a thing
Every place I go, I’ll think of you…

Of course there’s also this song too…

Covered by Joan…

Can you think of any others?
