With the theme of blue.  Not "the blues" so much, just.... Blue. Because that’s just how I feel. (and my apologies to the dial-uprs, sorry!)
To start you off, here’s an instrumental that you can have playing while you read around the kosland tonight.  This is some serious guitar picking, right here.

Leo Kottke medley (instrumental)

I’m having a moody musical Saturday evening, so I thought I’d share some of my tubin’ around here. I’m perfectly happy, really I am, but I still love so many of the songs that I lived with when I was in my teens. I listen to them again, and I have to chuckle. Sheesh. How did we ever make it out of the 60’s alive? Oh well.  I still love these.

Blue Joni Mitchell

Am I Blue? Billie Holiday

Bonnie Raitt - Angel from Montgomery

This is a tune that always makes me feel happy, and a bit silly, I dont know why.... Just so true.

I hope that I don't fall in love with you by Tom Waits

Laura Nyro Midnite Blue

Dylan It's all over now baby blue

Saved the best for last. This has to be one of my most all time favorite songs ever.  You might remember Jorma from Jefferson Airplane, or Hot Tuna.

Jorma Kaukonen Genesis


(Jorma Kaukonen)
Time has come for us to pause
And think of living as it was
Into the future we must cross, must cross
I'd like to go with you
And I'd like to go with you
You say I'm harder than a wall
A marble shaft about to fall
I love you dearer than them all, them all
So let me stay with you
So let me stay with you
And as we walked into the day
Skies of blue had turned to grey
I might have not been clear to say, to say
I never looked away
I never looked away
And though I'm feeling you inside
My life is rolling with the tide
I'd like to see it be an open ride
Along with you
Going along with you
The time we borrowed from ourselves
Can't stay within a vaulted well
And living turns into a lender's will
So let me come with you
And let me come with you
And when we came out into view
And there I found myself with you
When breathing felt like something new, new
Along with you
Going along with you

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
