Music Monday - 95 Theses Edition

Yes, yes. I know. Happy Halloween to you, too.

Instead of a clip of "A Mighty Fortress Is Our God", here is a more contemporary explanation of what happened on this day 494 years ago. WARNING - There is profanity in this clip. Not suitable for children.

Kudos to the creators of this song for mentioning Zwingli and Calvin.

Music Monday - CARDINALS edition

There are so many different music clips I want to share with you. During the past week, I switched between several of my favorites. But today...forget it. There's only one thing on my mind.

Listening to Mike and John tonight on KMOX, I remembered listening to spring games this season all the way back in March, when the Cardinals were still in Florida. March, April, May, June, July, August, September, October. Who thought we'd be in Texas today?

An FYI for those who don't know - Gretchen Wilson, the singer of "Redneck Woman" (and, of course, "Redbird Fever") was born in Pocahontas, Illinois. She's a lifelong Cardinals fan.

Anyone else's throat get tight over the line "Me and Grandpa used to listen to Mike Shannon and Jack Buck"? Me too.

Music Monday - Yellow Edition

I don't know what the hand is supposed to represent, but this cover of Coldplay's song "Yellow" is a favorite. Very soothing.

Music Monday - October 12th Edition

Today is not October 12th. It is, however, the official federal holiday of Columbus Day. The real Columbus Day is the 12th. October 12th is also the birthday of someone all of you should know. He passed away several years ago, but his voice lives on. He was also Italian, like Christopher Columbus. Only way, way more popular. And as far as I know Luciano Pavarotti never made the mistake of thinking the Bahamas were India.

Vincero! Vincero! (I will win, I will win!)
Listen, but watch the clip as well. I love it when he smiles right before the end.
