Saturday Song: Eifel 64–Blue


I ran across this video by accident, but it reminded me of a time when I was in high school and assigned to read Stephen Crane’s The Blue Hotel.” Blue is my favorite color, and before reading the story, I couldn’t think why Stephen Crane would give it this title. I imagined a hotel where everything was blue: blue carpeting, blue bedspreads, blue desks, blue nightstands, blue telephones, blue towels, blue bathtubs, etc. You get the picture. It was pretty odd, and so is this song. Enjoy, and have a great Saturday.

What’s your favorite color? Do you have an object you cherish of that color, or did you have such an object as a child? I look forward to reading about it, either in the comments field or on your own blog with a link here.

Saturday Song: Paul Simon: Kodachrome

My younger brother was the photographer in the family, so he might have been able to better relate to this song if he were my age when it was popular. However, my mother occasionally threatened to confiscate certain possessions of mine, so that’s why this song strikes a chord. Enjoy, and have a great day.

Saturday Song: Love is Blue by Andy Williams

A while back when I played my guitar and sang at an adult day care facility, a woman asked me if I knew this song. I told her I didn’t think there were any words to it, but when I looked online, I discovered otherwise. This Andy Williams rendition is different from the instrumental version I remember from the 1960’s. Enjoy, and have a great Saturday.
