"Please Let Me Wonder" is an AWESOME tune.  Great choice!

Of course, the entire Beach Boys Today album is awesome.

I think "When I Grow Up" is the best song on the album.  Brian Wilson at his musical greatest.

The Beach Boys Today was the start of Brian Wilson's ascent into greatness.

You could say that, but I'm a huge fan even of his earliest work.  It's all great.  Brian is a genius for the ages.

One of the greatest songs of all time.  Of course, I have dozens, hundreds, of greatest songs on my list.

Jon Batiste gave a truly mind-blowing performance on Austin City Limits last night on PBS.  Just amazing.  

He performed an extended version of this song and the whole place rocked out like crazy.

Oddly enough, the last show I watched before that one was a teen drama.

Guess I am stuck in the past.

Anyway...

Nothing right now.  I don't normally listen to music - watch movies instead.  I did recently listen to Woody Guthrie singing This Land Is Your Land because I added a link to it to a comment I made here.

Lately I've been listening to some of the first albums I bought as a kid (early 80's). One of these albums was Powerslave by Iron Maiden.

If I read correctly, this song has been on the Billboard Hot 100 for 53 weeks in a row. That is quite an achievement. The song was released the beginning of October 2020, and now, this week in Oct 2021, it is still in the top 10.   Plus I really like it and the artist.

I wasn't going to ask any questions on this article; just enjoy the tunes, but I have been searching Jimmy Durante songs and so far. . . well, I have a question: Did Jimmy Durante start singing (I love his artful style and "breathy" songs) young or later in life? I ask because when I came along I can remember him only as old.

I think he was always a singer, albeit with a gravely voice

Durante dropped out of school in seventh grade (appx 1908) to become a full-time  ragtime  pianist. He first played with his cousin, whose name was also Jimmy Durante. It was a family act, but he was too professional for his cousin. He continued working the city's  piano bar  circuit and earned the nickname "ragtime Jimmy", before he joined one of the first recognizable jazz bands in New York, the  Original New Orleans Jazz Band . [5]  Durante was the only member not from New Orleans. His routine of breaking into a song to deliver a joke, with band or orchestra chord punctuation after each line, became a Durante trademark. In 1920 the group was renamed Jimmy Durante's Jazz Band.

I'm in love with him. He is so 'vunerable' to put it out there like this. And so I have fallen in love with him for it!
