Daily Doodle: BART Romance
Song of the Day: Last Dance by Donna Summer
Musical Pipe Dream: Neon pink, purple, and white lights are flashing and I’m in an orchestra pit playing the violin.
Blurb 1/365: I just typed in Donna Summer and I don’t know what happened after that.
Daily Doodle: BART Stare
Song of the Day: Ziggy Stardust by David Bowie
Musical Pipe Dream: I’ve got the bass hung low to my hips. My skinny arms are flexed. My hair is all brushed to one side bit it’s still messy. During the lyrical parts, I sway back and forth while accompanying the vocals. During the jams, I slightly bang my head while my left hand climbs right on the frets to the higher notes. I’m biting my bottom lip with concentration.
Blurb 1/365: We’ve all just got to give each other a break.

Song of the Day: Try a Little Tenderness as sung by Otis Redding
Musical Pipe Dream: This video of Otis Redding’s performance in Sweden is magical. His slight movement and groove when the horns come in, the tempo, the audience feeling the music, the bridge, the breakdown, the band, everybody feeling the magic, the two encores, the kids getting their bags ready to leave, the third encore, the audience going nuts, the horn section having to step up to another part of the stage to back up from the audience, the announcer just doing his thing, THE BAND, Otis Redding … my musical pipe dream was that I was actually there. This is the kind of stuff I thank the YouTube gods for.
