This is for the guy in the Mint Bar who started it all:

"Old Man" (Neil Young)

Old man look at my life,
I'm a lot like you were.
Old man look at my life,
I'm a lot like you were.

Old man look at my life,
Twenty four
and there's so much more
Live alone in a paradise
That makes me think of two.

Love lost, such a cost,
Give me things
that don't get lost.
Like a coin that won't get tossed
Rolling home to you.

Old man take a look at my life
I'm a lot like you
I need someone to love me
the whole day through
Ah, one look in my eyes
and you can tell that's true.

Lullabies, look in your eyes,
Run around the same old town.
Doesn't mean that much to me
To mean that much to you.

I've been first and last
Look at how the time goes past.
But I'm all alone at last.
Rolling home to you.

Old man take a look at my life
I'm a lot like you
I need someone to love me
the whole day through
Ah, one look in my eyes
and you can tell that's true.

Old man look at my life,
I'm a lot like you were.
Old man look at my life,
I'm a lot like you were.
May 2019 be better for us all.

Lynne, my goodness do you ever sleep?

I think that the BBM answer to that one is 'Not often.'  ;)

Actually, I do sleep, but I keep getting onto an odd schedule...don't know why. ???

All great suggestions here!  I would love to hear the Dylan version of 'He Was a Friend of Mine.'  I also think the Neil Young suggestion fits really well, doesn't it?

We've had a few requests for "Goodbye My Lover"...stay tuned on that one.

That is one intense song.  To me, many of the lyrics can be strongly BBM-related, not all, so I wouldn't personally suggest it but it's a great track so I would be cool with it on BBM radio.

A little OT tidbit: The singer used to be in the British Army & as well as serving in Bosnia he was one of the guards during the vigil for the Queen Mother.

Know what I'd like ta hear more of? Gordon Lightfoot - Know you played "If you could read my mind" in yer special at the beginnin a the month, but there's so much more that can be included in yer list: his version a "Me & Bobby McGee" preceeded Janis Joplin's version by about 8 months, I love album cuts like "Nous vivons ensemble (We've got to stay together)" and minor hits (well n Canada it wasn't minor) like "Beautiful" and "Rainy Day People"

Man! can that boy entertain.

Please consider includin at least one more tune: either "Me & Bobby McGee" or "Beautiful".

Appreciate it!

How'bout Bob Dylan's "Don't think twice, it's alright"?

"It was only you in my life, and it will always be only you, Jack, I swear."

Hello. I have a song suggestion. It brings to mind the Sierra Motel scene vividly for me.

Artist: Richard Hawley
Album: Coles Corner
Year: 2005
Title: Hotel Room    



Ten thirty in this hotel room,
You and I locked in the gloom,
Lost out of love once again
But I've got you here with me friend

(Chorus)
Cos you're here in my arms
Here in my arms
Here in my arms
Here in my arms

Last time I looked it was nine
You know that all things then were fine,
Now I've gone and lost it again
But I've got you here with me friend.

(Chorus)

(Solo)

You know that it's like leading a mild life
The clothes in my younger days were so wild
And it's time I met someone like you
And I hope to make certain that it's true

Last time I looked it was late
That's when I started to break
It's a long long way till the end
But I've got you here with me friend

Cos you're here in my arms
Here in my arms
Here in my arms
Here in my arms
Here in my arms
Here in my arms
Here in my arms
Put you here in my arms
Here in my arms.

I'm listening to a beautiful CD this a.m. while cleaning my house, and here's one that would be good for your playlist. The CD is Trio and the song is Feel's Like Home written by Randy Newman. It is performed by Linda Ronstadt with accompaniment by Dolly Parton and Emmylou Harris.

Feel's Like Home

Something in your eyes makes me want to lose myself
Makes me want to lose myself in your arms
There's something in your voice makes my heart beat fast
Hope this feeling lasts
The rest of my life

If you knew how lonely my life has been
And how long I've felt so low
If you knew how I wanted someone to come along
And change my life the way you've done

Feels like home to me
Feels like home to me
Feels like I'm all the way back where I come from
Feels like home to me
Feels like home to me
Feels like I'm all the way back where I belong

A window breaks down a long dark street
And a siren wails in the night
But I'm alright cause I have you here with me
And I can almost see through the dark there's light

If you knew how much the moment means to me
And how long I've waited for your touch
If you knew how happy you are making me
I've never thought I'd love anyone so much

Feels like home to me
Feels like home to me
Feels like I'm all the way back where I come from
Feels like home to me
Feels like home to me
Feels like I'm all the way back where I belong

Would you consider replacing the Dylan version of "Make YOu Feel My Love" with the Garth version?
