What’s up Lisa A?
I’m sending a huge thanks, a hug and a kiss to you girl for nominating me for the song challenge.
If you are a regular reader of this blog, you already know that I am a huge lover of music so I was MORE than happy to dig right into this challenge.
As always, here are the rules of the road…
- Post a song a day for five consecutive days.
- Post what the lyrics mean to you. (Optional)
- Post the name of the song and video.
- Nominate 1 or 2 bloggers each day of the challenge.
About a year ago, I started posting my favorite R&B songs in a series called “My Jams.” It was a real blast!
For this challenge I decided that I would focus on a few of my favorite Pop/Rock songs. As with “My Jams,” the order is completely random.
But, in this case, I must abide by the rules and stick to a five song limit.
That said, I have so many Pop/Rock favorites that it would take a lifetime to list them all.
Alas, I am bound by regulations 🙂
Today’s Pop/ Rock jam is actually a Country jam with some R&B influence. It’s by Charlie Daniels who tips his cowboy hat toward my home state of Georgia.
“The Devil Went Down To Georgia”
But did you hear that joker play that rhythm guitar while Charlie slid that devilish bow across the strings on that black fiddle?
Sounded like LIGHTNING!
Wait, does lightning have a sound?
Oh well…thunder then!
For Lady G, a nine-year-old budding violinist, this was the JOINT!!!!
FYI: The fiddle has a flat bridge and the violin has a round bridge–that difference creates a sorta distinct difference in sound. Hell… at least that’s what my violin teacher said………..
Now if you ask a sistah, the devil won that duel! LOL!
Anywhats, I nominate my beautiful, crazy, sexy, cool, blonde blue-eyed Georgia homegirl Lennon Carlyle for this challenge.
Lennon, if you’ve already been nominated please forgive me love.
