(The following SHOULD have gone up at The Music Mamas this morning…but, apparently in the two years that I’ve shamefully let everything lie practically dormant, something there has rusted. So, rather than slow my new-found momentum, I’m sharing it with y’all. I intended a separate post here today, too, but it all comes out the same in the wash. I’M BACK, baby!)
Monty Python reference notwithstanding, allow me a moment of most grave sincerity to say that I have SO MISSED you people!
Ri here…the one who dropped the ball, went into a cave and left this poor site to die a slow, miserable death. What has it been…two years ago, now? I’m pretty sure we missed the entirety of 2012. If I told you that I’d been abducted by aliens in the interim, would it help?
I didn’t think so.
Let’s just say I’m back, I’m NOT ready to put this site on the cart (“Bring Out Yer Dead!”), and most of the Mamas are with me on that. You didn’t REALLY think you were going to be rid of us that easily, did you?
Now, I know it’s been a while, so here’s a refresher on the rules of the Friday Fiver:
1.) One of us posts five songs here. Totally blind – we don’t tell you who or what they are.
2.) You listen, and leave notes in the comments about each. (Be brutally honest! We may have thrown in a duffer just to see if you’re paying attention – they’re not ALL going to be winners, not even all new – just random songs to discuss.)
3.) On Sunday, we’re back with the Scoop – the big Reveal, as it were. If there were songs you loved, you go out and buy them and support the artists! Piece of cake…tasty, tasty cake.
When the urge strikes, we may have a theme, or a running similarity through the songs. Not so today. I have been so out of the music loop for so long, it’s frankly an embarrassment. So, in the interest of whimsy, I have just selected five songs from my collection at random. They actually should give you a pretty good indication my tastes. (Or the number of voices in my head…) Since all of the Mamas have vastly differing musical sensibilities, we’ll all be putting up posts soon in one form or another that remind you who we are and what to expect from us.
We’re getting reacquainted. 😉
So, here’s the mishmash that screams “RI!” If you have no idea who I am, (and trust me, after my lengthy absence, you’re definitely not alone in that), check the bio pages up top.
Now, volume up, and dive into these five:
