Friday Night Music--Feel Good Edition

Sphere: Related Content

It's been a good month in my blogging life. Yeah baby, a few Instalanches, a Lizardlanche and a Hot Air, er...whatever a link from Hot Air is called, an Allah/Bryanlanche? How about numbers like those shown below, the best I've ever gotten and I have all of you daily readers to thank for it.

Damn sports fans, those are some sweet numbers.

Anyway, with that in mind, I bring you feel good songs that will lift the spirit or at least make you feel good if you're feeling bad or feel better if you're feeling good.

First, a little ditty from Canadian band Triumph with Magic Power from the Allied Forces LP. An immensely uplifting song and Rik Emmitt was at top voice in this live performance:

Next, from the inspiration of my beautiful wife, I bring you the extremely uplifting Three Little Birds from the seminal Exodus album. Not as good in my humble opinion as the Rastaman Vibration but epic all the same.

A little Shakedown from Essen, GDR in '81 with some funky Brent keyboards and a ripping Jerry. Phil's bass is sweet as well and this is a fave as it was a staple in Philly and me and the missus saw it numerous times. It gets cutoff but you get the gist:

Finally the Jerry Band doing Dylan's I Shall Be Released. It's uplifting in the most spiritual way and the JGB always lifted it higher than any other version:

Have a great weekend.

That was significant spike in November... but ohhh noooo, so sorry, dropped in December... but look out! January!!

Pretty cool, man!

I'm not into triumph but those others, if I was to watch 'em, each outstanding!

Now if you'll excuse me, I must return to my weeping for the departure of Kucinich.

The life of blogging, bro.

Triumph was a band that struck me for some reason.

Too bad for Kucinich, I was looking forward to those K years, I think he would have been so successful that we would have changed to Constitution and kept him in for life.

Alas, it wasn't meant to be as the rest of the country didn't see in him what we do.
