New MM Music Badge

This Eddie Money song was recorded on his Platinum-certified album No Control, which was released in 1982.  It was co-written by Eddie Money, Elizabeth Myers a composer who usually worked on commercials, and his bass player Ralph Carter, and it was released as a single, reaching #63 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and #9 on the Mainstream Rock Tracks.  It’s possible that this song could have placed higher than #63 if he had removed a word that was forbidden from the airwaves, but he decided to slip in the line, “Her tits were shakin’”.  Eddie Money sings about a wild night with a reckless gal named Rosanna.  She takes him for a ride in her daddy’s car, blows out the speakers and gets high.  Later on, she treats him to a strip tease, well she took her coat off.  The whole time, there’s plenty of shakin’ going on…

I'm about 50 pages in and have to say that I love the visual format of the book. For visually-oriented individuals like… Continue reading Visualizing The Beatles – Part 1


Winter’s Dark Blanket Awaits ~ collaboration poem

Check this out. Ken at rivrvlogr wove his poem and mine together into a lovely tribute to the season.


Winter’s Dark Blanket Awaits

On a fir tree dressed in snow
with a green-white brocade,
pine cones cast shadows in moonlight.
As the old year is put to sleep,
dreaming forevermore in silent night beauty,
its light germinates a New Year.

To create this poem, I’ve woven together my haiku response to Frank Tassone’s Christmas challenge with the tanka response by Lisa at Tao Talk to Frank’s New Year challenge.
