My Holiday Wish…

I have a daily wish for a peaceful, loving world. However, Christmas is the one time a year that the majority feel like giving so, I will make a more defined wish for the holiday. I wish every adult will send, pass on, or buy a piece of classical, soulful, genuine music from the past to give to a younger person. A large part of the youth is ignorant of musical history. A lot of music education is being stripped from schools. Instead of a “family radio/record player, the kids have their own Ipods 24/7. Kids don’t have to listen to their parents music anymore.

Music brings people together in a way that politics, religion, and culture can not. People of different types of all three categories may be at the same concert singing every word in harmony.

If your time is limited during the gift-giving season, at least forward this blog with Billie Holiday.

Happy Holidays Everyone!

When the moon’s kinda dreamy
Starry eyed and dreamy
And nights are luscious and long
If you’re kinda lonely
Then nothin’ but the blues are brewin’
The blues are brewin’

When the wind through the window
Blows across your pillow
And tells you sleepin’ is wrong
If love goes a thirsting
Till you feel like bursting
Then nothing but the blues are brewin’
The blues are brewin’

Suppose you want somebody
But you ain’t got nobody
You only get a gleam in your eyes
Till somebody’s found you
And put their lovin’ arms around you
You got the feelin’ you want to die

But when the Lord up above you
Send’s someone to love you
The blues are something you loose
You’re so busy doing
The things that you’re doing
That love ain’t got no time
For brewin’ the blues
