"Whenever humans come together for any reason, music is there: weddings, funerals, graduation from college, men marching off to war, stadium sporting events, a night on the town, prayer, a romantic dinner, mothers rocking their infants to sleep ... music is a part of the fabric of everyday life."

I'm feelin' tragic like I'm Marlon Brando
When I look at my China Girl
I could pretend that nothing really meant too much
When I look at my China Girl

"I never saw her in the daytime. We seemed to live by night. What was left of the day went away like a pack of cigarettes you smoked. I didn't know where she lived. I never followed her. All I ever had to go on was a place and time to see her again. I don't know what we were waiting for. Maybe we thought the world would end."

This song hit me the right way with the temps reaching over the 100s all week...

"Summer night in Harlem, man it's a really hot
Well it's too hot to sleep, and I'm too cold to heat
I don't care if I die or not."

"I bet there's rich folks eating from a fancy dining car
They're probably drinkin' coffee and smoking big cigars."

RIP Bruce Lee 20 July 1973
Baker. Rain. Coffee.

You've been so forgetful
A kind of a stop and go forgetfulness
That bothers me

I once had a netful
But you've been forgetful
And i'm never kissed
And it bothers me

Never any romance
No chance
And it bothers me

And someday
When you are regretful
You'll wish you had tried much less forgetfulness
You'll be upset

And forgetful
Won't be able
To forget
