Ho ho ho, rockers! It's that time of year again - today is the winter solstice and that means the Man With the Bag is getting ready to see if you've been naughty or nice.
How does Brian Setzer make any money with the size of that band? People love Christmas music, but that's ridiculous. It's also cool as can be. I'm going with NICE on this one.
But I didn't come here today just to talk about Christmas music. No, not at all. I wanted to know if you BELIEVE. If you've read The Polar Express, you know what I'm talking about.
What do you believe in? How about a thing called love? I'm there - a big believer! And I'm a believer in space age music videos that are strange, but then again, appealing. I also believe in songs with big guitars, driving beats and songs that withstand the test of time.
I also Believe in Magic, especially in a young girl's heart. Ha, I don't even quite know what that means, but I really like this catchy song about believing and about music. I miss bands like the Lovin' Spoonful, too!
Do I miss made-for-TV claptrap shows about "rock bands," like The Partridge Family or The Monkees? Nope. But when they use the Wrecking Crew to play the songs, well, I'm a Believer. Heck, I'm a Daydream Believer, too!
Time for one more? Of course there is - you're at work reading this, right? There's always time for another song when you are "working." And there's always time to stick it to the Man! But remember that today is just a place in time and that things move on. I miss early REM a lot - they had a great jangly sound and fast songs that resonated with me. I Believe they were a great band! But the key word in that last sentence was "were."
You have to believe in something, right? How about these:
How great is that? Now I believe that I better split. But don't you worry yourselves, sweet ones, because I'll be back soon. You can believe that.
