That Time of Year...

If this isn't one of the f**king saddest songs on the gorram planet, I don't know what is.



Happy New Year, everyone. Stay safe tonight.

That is all.

Sitting my butt at home... Well, that and an early flight tomorrow!

Yeah, eventually you quit hoping for a better new year and start being happy with one you can finish above ground.

The last line of that song, about the snow turning into rain, makes me wonder if he wrote that song in central Ohio. Rain is the typical Christmas weather there.

Happy New Year Jay!

I googled, he is from Peoria, IL so he definitely knows Midwest weather...

Play this Chapin back-to-back with Fogleberg and you'll be reaching for the straight razor.

Stretch: In many states you can't buy life insurance after listening to Harry Chapin on New Year's Eve.

Yep. A wonderful song. It's a shame that Fogelberg is no longer with us.

That song is on my compilation cassette entitled "Lamentations and Bridge Abutments "

Stretch & Rich,

Add in Journey, pretty much anything, and you've got the trifecta of "hide the tequila"...

Stretch said...

Hell, New Year's Eve + tequila + Jim Croce = injunction from old girlfriend(s).
