Song of the Day: Son House, “Walking Blues”

Blues singer, songwriter, and guitarist Son House was born on this day in 1902. Originally a preacher and opposed to playing secular music, he started playing the blues when he was 25 and learned to blend the intensity and vocal cadences of preaching with his singing. Muddy Waters emulated his style when he started out. "Walking Blues" was written by House and is a blues standard.

Let’s get right into Di’s questions…

Do you use an ‘air freshener’ in your home/car/office? (solid, gel, spray, pot pourri, etc) No, we don’t, and sometimes I think we should…

How often do you clean the oven or microwave? I’m not sure. I think whenever we think of it.

The instructions are in Greek…

Do you use a fabric conditioner in your laundry and/or fragranced tumble drier sheets? Mary uses fabric softener in the wash. Since we don’t get that dirty, a lot of times she just rinses out the clothes with the softener.

If you have the choice, do you prefer to get your laundry dry outside on a line or use a tumble drier? We’ve never hung clothes outside to dry. We always use the dryer.

Yes, we used to close the washer and dryer because, if we didn’t, one or more would get in there.

That’s all for this week!

MMMM: Spring!

Alana chose as today’s theme "Spring begins today in the Northern Hemisphere and fall in the Southern. Pick songs about spring (or fall, depending on where you live) or that have Spring (or fall) in the title." Well, I thought of three songs that mention spring in the lyrics right off the top, and found seven more. If you prefer a playlist, you can find it here

Bobby Goldsboro, “Honey”

Neil Diamond, “Sweet Caroline”

Tom Lehrer, “Poisoning Pigeons In The Park”

Frank Sinatra, “It Might As Well Be Spring”

The Beach Boys, “Spring Vacation”

Electric Light Orchestra, “Mr. Blue Sky”

Johnny Horton, “When It’s Springtime In Alaska (It’s 40 Below)”

Chris Rea, “Fires Of Spring”

Billie Holiday, “Some Other Spring”

Ella Fitzgerald, “Spring Can Really Hang You Up The Most”
