Music Monday flows with Billy Joel

I’m back from Ubud, Bali. It was a wonderful trip and went by too quickly.

I felt very much at home there.

Yet, now that I’m back in Toronto, this song, “You’re My Home” reminds me that home is not a place, but where my heart belongs.

“When you look into my eyes
And you see the crazy gypsy in my soul
It always comes as a surprise
When I feel my withered roots begin to grow
Well I never had a place that I could call my very own
That’s all right, my love, ’cause you’re my home

When you touch my weary head
And you tell me everything will be all right
You say, “Use my body for your bed
And my love will keep you warm throughout the night”
Well I’ll never be a stranger and I’ll never be alone
Whenever we’re together, that’s my home

Home can be the Pennsylvania Turnpike
Indiana’s early morning dew
High up in the hills of California
Home is just another word for you

Well I never had a place that I could call my very own
That’s all right, my love, ’cause you’re my home

If I travel all my life
And I never get to stop and settle down
Long as I have you by my side
There’s a roof above and good walls all around
You’re my castle, you’re my cabin and my instant pleasure dome
I need you in my house ’cause you’re my home.
You’re my home.

If I travel all my life
And I never get to stop and settle down
Long as I have you by my side
There’s a roof above and good walls all around
You’re my castle, you’re my cabin and my instant pleasure dome
I need you in my house ’cause you’re my home.
You’re my home.”

Enjoy an oldie by Billy Joel and have a great week,

Music Monday with She’s Always a Woman

There are a lot of women in my upcoming psychological mystery, and this song is one of my favorites about the diversity of a woman. Enjoy Billy Joel’s song as another clue to my book.

“… Oh … she takes care of herself
She can wait if she wants, she’s ahead of her time
Oh … and she never gives out
And she never gives in, she just changes her mind

And she’ll promise you more than the garden of Eden
Then she’ll carelessly cut you and laugh while you’re bleeding
But she’ll bring out the best and the worst you can be
Blame it all on yourself ’cause she’s always a woman to me …”

* * * *

To recap, the clues so far are:

The Tide Is High

Crazy

Coconut

Mad World

Something

You’re So Vain

It’s Probably Me

Windmills of Your Mind

If you want to read other genres I write in: erotica/romance, flash fiction, and short stories with a twist, check out the selection.

Have a wonderful week,

Harmonica Monday with the Piano Man @BillyJoel

This Billy Joel classic has one of the most recognizable harmonica riffs played throughout the song.

For me, the lyrics are both beautiful and melancholy … but life’s like that. I’m learning to play the song through on the harmonica this week.

If you like your stories with a touch of melancholy, pick  up Fall into Winter, which includes harmonica in the first story, “Seduced by the Blues.”

Musical Mondays – Billy Joel

The pressure-filled month of December continues with “Pressure” by Billy Joel. This one brings me WAY back—campy song—campy video, and Billy Joel looks like Sly Stallone for some odd reason. 😉

Enjoy,
