You can call me raincheck

Taylor Hicks last night. Cafe Du Nord. A short tag…

Raincheck – Van Morrison

It’s not high finance, it’s called heart and soul
If it’s rock and roll, got to go, go, go, go, go
Gonna keep moving on up to the higher ground
Gonna keep on moving on up, I got to stand my ground
Gonna keep on moving on up, I wanna stick around
Won’t let the bastards grind me down
Won’t let the bastards grind me down
Won’t let the bastards grind me down

Call me raincheck in the afternoon
Call me raincheck, need a shot of rhythm and blues
Call me raincheck, on a golden autumn day
Call me raincheck, I won’t fade away, I won’t fade away
I don’t fade away, I don’t fade away, unless I want to

Can’t take my love away, ah ’cause it’s here to stay
If it fades away, come back another day
Gonna keep on moving on up to the higher ground
Gonna keep on moving on up, I wanna stick around
Gonna keep on moving on up, oh gonna stand my ground
Won’t let the bastards grind me down
Won’t let the bastards grind me down
Won’t let the bastards grind me down

My name is raincheck in the afternoon
My name is raincheck, need a shot of rhythm and blues
My name is raincheck, on a golden autumn day
My name is raincheck, and I don’t fade away, I don’t fade away
I don’t fade away, I don’t fade away, unless I want to

Move it up, move it up, move it up, move it up
Move it up, move it up, move it up, move it up
Move it up, move it up, move it up, move it up, move it up

Grind me down, grind me down, grind me down

My name is raincheck in the afternoon
My name is raincheck, need a shot of rhythm and blues
My name is raincheck, on a golden autumn day
My name is raincheck, and I don’t fade away, I don’t fade away
I don’t fade away, I don’t fade away, unless I want to

Put on your dancing shoes, dance away your blues
When I’m feeling like this, I got nothing to lose
Wanna keep on moving on up to the higher ground
Wanna keep on moving on up and I’ll stick around
Wanna keep on moving on up, got to stand my ground
Won’t let the bastards grind me down
Won’t let the bastards grind me down
Oh, won’t let the bastards grind me down

My name is raincheck in the afternoon
My name is raincheck, need a shot of rhythm and blues
My name is raincheck, on a golden autumn day
My name is raincheck, and I don’t fade away, I don’t fade away
I don’t fade away, I don’t fade away, unless I choose
I choose, I choose, I choose

No, I don’t fade away, I don’t fade away, I don’t fade away
Unless I choose, I choose, I choose
I choose, I choose, I choose
I choose, I choose, I choose
I choose, I choose, I choose
I choose, I choose, I choose
No, I won’t fade away, I won’t fade away, I don’t fade away
Unless I want to

My top 10 “most played”

I’m always surprised that I’m surprised by what I find on my iTunes ‘most played’ list. 

You would think I would know what I listen to most.  If I had to guess I would say that John Butler Trio songs would make up the majority of my top 10.  But with all my excessive JBT listening of the last few months, not a single one of their songs have cracked my top 10!  Wow.  And where is Jamie Lidell??  Down at like number 20.  I’m shocked he is so far down- shocked I say!  Mavis Staples takes up number 11 to 14…  yeah, that seems about right.  And were is Lyle Lovett? No place to be seen!  Has the world gone wonky?!

Anyway, here are my top 10 most played:

 #1  Hello Hello, Ray LaMontagne (warning: this track is a little loud…turn down your speakers)

#2 Lonely Avenue, Ray Charles

#3 Did Ye Get Healed? Van Morrison, A Night In San Francisco

#4  Ain’t Nobody Worryin’, Anthony Hamilton

#5  I Want To Know, Ray Charles

#6  untitled? (I Won’t Be Around?) Ray LaMontagne

#7  Hello Lonely, Taylor Hicks  (most of this list is his fault!)

#8  Down In Mississippi, Mavis Staples

#9  How Come, Ray LaMontagne

#10 Jolene, Ray LaMontagne

Ahh…I do love all these songs more than I can say.  And over a few years, these are the ones it seems I keep going back to.   But I wouldn’t have guessed most of them to be that high on the list.  And I would have thought “How Come” would be there, but I would have thought that it would have been number one.  I’m pretty surprised that “Hello Hello” is my most listened to song.

What’s on your most played list?  Any surprises?
