Happy New Year! Thanks for allowing me in to wake you from your slumber this morning and ease you into the new day and the new year with some fun (and, in cases, improbable) music. I had a blast putting this show together and would love to hear that you enjoyed it!
Here are some of the lyrics from the third track I played this morning, Moscow-born Regina Spektor's "On the Radio." Thoughts to take you into 2010...
"...This is how it works...you're young until you're not...You love until you don't...You try until you can't...You laugh until you cry...You cry until you laugh...And everyone must breathe...Until their dying breath...No this is how it works...You peer inside yourself...You take the things you like...Then try to love the things you took...And then you take that love you made...And stick it into someone else's heart...Pumping someone else's blood...And walking arm in arm...You hope it don't get harmed...But even if it does...You'll just do it all again...And on the radio...You'll hear November Rain...That solo's awful long...But it's a nice refrain...You listen to it twice...'Cause the DJ is asleep..."
Keep your circle of friends close in 2010...keep music spinning on your CD player...keep dancing and singing...keep open to new things in this new year...fall in love!
