It's almost Friday here, but it's been Friday on the other side of the world for a while already, where Shay, fearless leader of Favourite Things Friday, lives. I'm joining the linky party on the spur of the moment this evening, since it's too late to do any serious treadmill walking anyway. I know; darn.
What would really be my favorite thing is to have a Friday (or any day of the week) in which I didn't have to do any ding-dang typing. Because you know what? My forearms actually hurt from all the keyboard pounding I've been doing lately. That cannot be good. And yes, I know, doing a blog post involves typing, but it's of the recreational sort, so that doesn't count.
But I will keep this short on words and instead cop out with some videos of one of my favorite things, '70s rock!
Now, I'm not that person who's gotta listen to the classic rock station all day. Even though I like this stuff, more than a few hours of Rush, Peter Frampton, and Queen are going to make me want to pierce my own eardrums with a busted guitar string. All things in moderation, I say.
The idea for this post came about because it's St. Patrick's Day, and I was thinking about whether there was any decent rock music to come out of Ireland which not involve a guy named Bono. Then I remembered Thin Lizzy, the 1970s rock band formed in Dublin.
Which then got me thinking of a lot of other '70s rock music I liked (none of it Irish, sadly) which, if I wasn't having such a nose-to-the-grindstone work week, I might take the time to figure out how to embed in one of those handy-dandy playlists. But that seemed a little too time consuming and brain intensive, so YouTube will have to suffice.
So here are a few faves in random order. Feel free to nod your head and sing along loudly. Flick your Bic even.
I'd have to say that for me this evening, my favorite is the Doobie Brothers Black Water. (Unfortunately, embedding was not allowed on that excellent, version, but please feel free to click the link and enjoy it on YouTube.) It's the perfect music to de-stress by. And right about now, I'd like to be floating along on that raft that I built me that's ready for floating...trolling my sore arms in the water.
Happy Friday, all!
