Nobody Flashes: What a Fool Believes

Nobody Flashes

This is one of my favorite songs. I can’t for the life of me figure out what it’s about…something about he was in love with someone long ago and THINKS she still loves him, but she really doesn’t…I don’t know. You tell me.

Mike is from Ferguson, MO. Yes THAT Ferguson. I used to go see him in his first band here in St. Louis when I was 16, in a club called THE CASTAWAYS. And I played in bands with many of the musicians that he grew up playing with.

That’s how long he’s been singing. He didn’t play piano then, he was the lead singer of the Sheratons. He left this town and went on to the Doobie Brothers and the rest is history.

The neighborhood where he grew up is very pretty. Almost plantation looking houses.

I love his voice. It’s almost painful to watch him sing, but there it is.

The piano and bass lines on this is so…original. That man can SING.

Mike…IS an original. Showing that good things did come out of Ferguson. And this version is…one I just saw.

Enjoy.

Nobody Flashes Gloria And Other Happy News

Nobody’s Flashes

This is the song that the blues took to the Stanley Cup.

Somewhere in my basement, I have a video of me singing this song in a nightclub, back when VHS was all the rage.

And I was going to post THAT, but to have it transferred to a format where I could get it on computer would take a month.

Anyway, someday, I just might post that.

In the mean time, St. Louis tomorrow will have a great time, singing this song and celebrating GOOD news for a change.

And since Sunday is Father’s Day, I just couldn’t help NOT posting this adorable conversation between a dad and his son.  Dad and his son completely understand each other.

Proving you do not need to know how to talk to get your point across.

Sweet Music for a Sunday Afternoon

You Have to HEAR This to Believe It

Nobody Flashes 

You have to SEE and HEAR this to believe it.

Incredible.

I can’t even imagine when this kid started to get this good.

All I can say is “God” is good.

We can thank him for giving us this talent.

Enjoy!

(Once again, thanks to ‘g’ man.)

Nobody Flashes Footloose

Nobody Flashes 

–I think I posted this before.

I’m posting it again, just because.

We need something upbeat today, due to the fact that even after 2 years of criminals trying to take the President out, it’s been a waste of time, and they are now still going after Trump.

But, the Mueller, and the RINO’s are all slinking into the background and STILL trying to save their own vicious and unlawful hides, by saying “Okay, Mueller did a great job and we can now forget that Obama and Hillary weaponized ALL our institutions just to hurt Trump and the citizens who voted for him.”

I’m sorry. Could it be more ‘transparent’?

So yes, Enjoy the dance. .

By the way…my husband is on vacation so I am too. I should be back before the week is out.

Everybody stay sane!

Who Wears BLACK in the Desert? Nobody Wonders

 

Nobody Flashes

I thought I’d celebrate the President’s offer to the DACA Hispanics, by posting one of America’s favorite Spanish classics. Malaguena.

Which I have NO idea what that means. It’s just a fun song.

Even though, Nancy and Chuck will continue to snub the President, I’d say that the Mexican culture is much more embedded in our culture than the Muslim culture.

But, don’t let Obama know that.

Anyway, enjoy.

I’d be the Kid Dancing…..Watch and Be Amazed

Nobody Flashes

I am still amazed at the talent and composure of these two children. Can you even imagine what they will be playing like when they are 21? Beautiful.

These were sent to me by a reader…so I thought I’d share. (Thanks to ‘g’man)

Enjoy…(By the way, it’s not easy to play standing up.)

A Need to….Forget About It All For Just One Moment

Nobody Flashes—

Sorry, it’s just that I’m into music this weekend. Sometimes you just have to get away from the political madness.

I really love this original rendition of Beethoven’s Ode to Joy…

Brian Pezzeni says he was just improvising.

Enjoy…I can’t stop listening to it.

Nobody Flashes One of the Great Live Recordings.

Nobody Flashes

One of the best “I am in pain” love songs ever written.

And this live version, with such excellent musicians, is 100 times better than the original recording.

What a great singer. What a great songwriter.

What a great musician.

Enjoy.

Nobody Flashes the Ritz: Do NOT Miss the Last One:

Nobody Flashes

I was having too much fun watching these: Various versions of the old classic: Puttin’ on the Ritz.

Notice, Michael Jackson is dancing with an ALL BLACK troop…and how long ago was this? And this was on TV? And you’ve been told black people never got enough jobs? Seriously? He was just a kid.

The next one is the master Fred Astaire, and the guy copying his moves does okay, but he can’t pick up the cane with his foot, (How did Fred DO THAT with his hand?) so he just skips that part and then he gets sloppy. NOBODY past or present could match Fred’s perfection.

Not to mention, sheer genius of creativity. He was a drummer at heart.

And… who knew Clark Gable could sing? LOOK at the face on that woman? Anybody know who she is? Priceless. What a look she give him. Cracks me up.

Clark’s voice is REALLY high…which from such a macho guy is really funny.

But, as far as a remake go, Herb Albert’s remake, can’t be beat. I think this was my favorite.

In fact, I’m going to watch it again.

It’s…excellent.

(P.S.) Taco’s was okay, but pretty boring so I didn’t post it, but you can find it on YouTube, where everybody thought TACO’s version and Gene Wilder’s version was better.

Poor saps.

Anyway…Enjoy!

Nobody Flashes…Aretha Thinking

Nobody Flashes

Nobody likes to imagine a whole race of black people lining up their democratic representatives, like Obama, and Jesse, and the BLM, and the Black Caucus, and getting this sung to them, Aretha leading the pack. Yes, a whole black nation singing to them, while they stand on the Capital steps.

“You better THINK! Think about what you’re trying to do to me.” “Yeah THINK!”

FREEDOM!!

Okay. Some other movie. Back to the video.

Tell me you don’t love this video and I’ll tell you how sorry I feel for your missing frontal lobes.

Enjoy!
