One for “Hall & Oates”

Hey folks!

I’ve been collecting many songs but haven’t had the time to share them. Correction in progress!

Currently, I’m hooked on to this track. It’s a cover track of the very famous song by Hall and Oates – I can’t go for that. This is a fantastic tribute by “The Bird and the Bee” who seem to have remastered this 80s number.

Song: “I can’t go for that”

Artist: “The Bird and the Bee”

Original Cover: “Hall & Oates”



Wandering Sonata

One for ‘Diamonds & Rust’…


This song has become one of my most beloved songs. I can listen to it for almost infinite number of times without having that saturation effect. Very few songs have this quality and this is one such song.

Joan Baez sings it for her lover Bob Dylan and it speaks volumes. Of course, the video is self-explanatory.

The sound of that guitar just grips my soul and the lyrics narrate a story; a scene from a lover’s life…It creates nostalgia and somehow reminds me of autumn. Maybe this is how being in love must feel like…


Song: ‘Diamonds & Rust’ by Joan Baez 

~ Lyrics ~

“Well I’ll be damned 
Here comes your ghost again 
But that’s not unusual 
It’s just that the moon is full 
And you happened to call 
And here I sit 
Hand on the telephone 
Hearing a voice I’d known 
A couple of light years ago 
Heading straight for a fall

As I remember your eyes 
Were bluer than robin’s eggs 
My poetry was lousy you said 
Where are you calling from? 
A booth in the midwest 
Ten years ago 
I bought you some cufflinks 
You brought me something 
We both know what memories can bring 
They bring diamonds and rust

Well you burst on the scene 
Already a legend 
The unwashed phenomenon 
The original vagabond 
You strayed into my arms 
And there you stayed 
Temporarily lost at sea 
The Madonna was yours for free 
Yes the girl on the half-shell 
Would keep you unharmed

Now I see you standing 
With brown leaves falling around 
And snow in your hair 
Now you’re smiling out the window 
Of that crummy hotel 
Over Washington Square 
Our breath comes out white clouds 
Mingles and hangs in the air 
Speaking strictly for me 
We both could have died then and there

Now you’re telling me 
You’re not nostalgic 
Then give me another word for it 
You who are so good with words 
And at keeping things vague 
Because I need some of that vagueness now 
It’s all come back too clearly 
Yes I loved you dearly 
And if you’re offering me diamonds and rust 
I’ve already paid”


“We both know what memories can bring, they bring diamonds and rust…”


——-Wandering Sonata.



One for the heart that longs for home…


Whenever I think of home, this song always comes to mind. From the OST of George Clooney starrer “Up in the Air”.

‘Going Home’ by Dan Auerbach.


This song sounds just right. I guess this is when they say “music just touches the right chords”, doesn’t it?

Enough said…
