October, 1973 is one of those monster months in rock 'n' roll. So big for me that I'm writing about it a month early, fifty years later.
I'll start with Elton John, the biggest rock 'n' roll star to impact my life in 1973 because my new girlfriend loved Elton John, still does. She had all of his records during that time, and on October 5, 1973 he releases, Goodbye Yellow Brick Road. I'm sure Mary Kit bought this double-album on that day, and for the next four years I would be hearing that album quite a bit on the turntable, the radio, and live in concert.
|Elton John, Fabulous Forum 10/5/74|
Goodbye Yellow Brick Road has so many great songs. My favorite is Harmony. Let me know your favorite song from this great double-album in the comments section below.
Enjoy the album my friends!

In my analysis of my trips and falls, it mainly comes down to one thing, distraction.
I'll look up in the distance to see some person or something coming my way, and whoa!
In the car it doesn't seem to be a problem. I can still watch YouTube videos and text while driving (just kidding).
So what to do old dog? Any new tricks out there?
I did a YouTube Search and typed in, "Pick Up Your Feet." There's a bunch of videos that highlight specific stretches, or how to land heel to toe with your feet. Hey, isn't that how I got plantar fasciitis?
The only useful thing I found was the lovely little song by Nataly Dawn that starts off the playlist this week.
So after everything, whether I'm walking with my wife or running by myself, I'm training my brain to say to my feet (about every 2 minutes), "Hey stupid, pick up your f*#$in' feet!"
I can't wait for the moment when I unconsciously say this outloud with my wife and she smacks me upside the head! (Hey that's two "smacks upside the head" references in two weeks.)
On another note-
I just watched the 2014 documentary, Elliott Smith - Heaven Adores You
(click here on Amazon Prime.) You might want to check it out. It's kicked off my rediscovery of Elliott Smith and I've got one video of his to share this week. It won't be the last.
Enjoy the playlist my friends.
