Save a Prayer – Duran Duran

Posted in A Day in the Life, Music Blogosphere, Songs I'm Grateful For 2009 | No Comments »

Duran Duran’s “Save a Prayer” is a late addition to this month’s Songs That I’m Grateful For”. While today is Monday, November 9th, I admit that this month’s blogs have already been written.

But after reading on the Hypebot blog today that Duran Duran’s John Taylor believes that Twitter dilutes musicians’ creativity, I was reminded of their song “Save a Prayer”, which I still have to admit IS a song that I’m grateful for.

Of course, after reading John Taylor’s article for the BBC, I then had an internal debate of whether or not to add this song to this month’s blog. While my pride did not want me to give any attention to his backward-thinking remark, I learned that my Twitter friend @marjae was unfamiliar with Duran Duran. So while she’s probably a bit younger than me anyway, the teacher in me insisted that I add this song.

And of course, it’s always good to remember that we do not have to like a teacher in order to learn from him.

Pink Moon – Nick Drake

Pink Moon by Nick Drake is another song by a special singer/songwriter who left this earth too soon. Like many people, the first I heard of this song was in a VW commercial. It’s a gorgeous song. Better late than never.

In honor of Thanksgiving, throughout November 2009 I’ll be posting blogs dedicated to some of my favorite songs. If you happen to find my website via a Google search of one of these songs, there is a very good chance that you’ll like my music too.
