Night owl chat – Amy Winehouse on “Other Voices”

From Wikipedia:

“Other Voices” is a television series broadcast on RTÉ Two in Ireland, usually on a Wednesday night. It features live musical performances & interviews from many Irish and international musicians. Filming of the live performances is usually in the intimate setting of the 200-year-old Church of St James in Dingle, County Kerry.

I watched “Amy Winehouse: The Day She Came To Dingle” on BBC4 last weekend, and was again reminded of what a talent she was, and how it went wasted. These clips are from her performance on “Other Voices”.

Night owl chat – Hall & Oates

Today has been a GOOD day, so time for some music.

When I think of Hall & Oates, I think of summers hanging out in the park, and nights spent watching MTV. So, a little blue-eyed Philly soul with the latest members of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.

Night owl chat – That famous Obot, Michael McDonald (and a poem)

Earlier today I expressed my, um, less than fond regards for noted musician Michael McDonald. I was then made aware that Mr. McDonald is a fierce Obot, who has taken fan displeasure in speaking out for Pres. Obama. So, in expiation, some of Mr. McDonald’s oeuvre. BUT, only with the Doobie Brothers; I can go a lifetime without listening to “Sweet Freedom” again.
