the night tripper - Gris-gris
I'd perused the New Arrivals section at one of the local record stores, Euclid Records, and had moved on to this and that. When I came back to the NA section Gris-gris had just been filed under Blues next to the Louis Jordan compilation I was going to pick up. Well, Louis had to wait - this was the first time I'd seen Gis-go so I had to go for it fo' sho!

i can see how that Paul Simon song could keep you awake; it has a rhythm like a train on the tracks which sounds mighty fine to my ears. man, those early simon & garfunkel records brings ol' jonapi to tears. absolutely beautiful music.
these last few nights it's been The Orb's Little Fluffy Clouds keeping myself awake; impossible to extract that bassline from the brain, infusing one's senses causing a flood of lucid dreaming like bobbing in warm cushioning water.
ahhh, the sound of early '90's bliss; rural idyll, countryside bathed in sweet summer sunlight with a beautiful righteous doobie in the hand and my wife by my side.
was that really 21 years ago? my how time flies....
have wonderful weekends everyone.
My prior one double-posted, so this is the edit to make it look just a little less annoying...
The Obvious Child
Has been on full-bore repeat loop in my head all through a sleepless night. I keep hearing the same verse:
Well I'm accustomed to a smooth ride
Or maybe I'm a dog who's lost its bite
I don't expected to be treated like a fool no more
I DON'T EXPECT TO SLEEP THROUGH THE NIGHT
So was this swirling all 'round my brain all night BECAUSE I couldn't sleep, or was it the REASON I couldn't sleep? Cause-and-effect, or self-fulfilling prophecy?
Next up, Zevon's "I'll Sleep When I'm Dead," no doubt...and then the Beatles' "I'm So Tired." And so on...

Not Fade Away
Lyrics By: Hardin/Petty
Music By: Hardin/Petty
I wanna tell you how it's gonna be, you're gonna give your love to me,
I wanna love you night and day, you know my love not fade away.
You know my love not fade away, not fade away!
My love is bigger than a Cadillac, I try to show you but you drive me back,
Your love for me has got to be real, your gonna know just how I feel.
Our love is real, not fade away, not fade away!
Played a few times by the Grateful Dead in their earliest years, and became a staple from the end of 1969 onwards.
