Happy Thursday!


GLOBmaster2017Good morning GLOBers, are you ready for another fabulous Thursday?  Congratulations to the National Champion Florida Gator baseball team for overcoming an early 3-0 deficit to be LSU 4-3 Wednesday night in Hoover at the 2018 Southeastern Conference Tournament.  "Another Florida-LSU game," said Head Coach Kevin O'Sullivan. "We'd lost for in a row going back to the Sunday against Georgia and I don't think we'd lost four in a row since 2013," Coach Sullivan added.  Florida advances in the winner's bracket and will face the winner of Wednesday night's game between Arkansas and South Carolina. The winner's bracket game will be the nightcap on Thursday in Hoover, scheduled to start 30 minutes after the Auburn-Texas A&M game.  GO GATORS!

The GLOB Master loves it when he comes across a new group, band, music sounds worth sharing with his fellow GLOBers.  Have you ever been listening to the radio and that familiar song comes up and you think, "yeah, this is nice sound."  That is what is happening to me every time I hear a Rosie & The Riveters tune on the best radio station on the planet.  Their website associates them with a Bill Withers sound.  I am thinking the music genre would be closer to  Dan Hicks and his retro scat like music..  Definitely a vaudeville link to their music and style. I'm thinking the voices and they way they climb up and down the music scales make this music captivating.


From the Rosie & The Riveters website:

052418RRalbumThe band wrote over 40 songs in a cabin in Northern Saskatchewan before traveling to Toronto to collaborate with heavy-hitting Canadian songwriters like Royal Wood and Matthew Barber.  A quick read through song titles like Gotta Get Paid, Let ‘em Talk and I Wanna be King gives an idea of what they have to say. While their single, Ms. Behave, lays down a Bill Withers-inspired groove and rejects the policing of women’s behavior, “I Believe You” sprung from the outrage and sorrow they felt after hearing the recent avalanche of stories of sexual assault. Produced by Joshua Van Tassel their sophomore album echoes Aretha Franklin’s demand for R-E-S-P-E-C-T.


The first time I heard Rosie & The Riveters sing I Want To Be King I smiled thinking what a clever idea a female wanting to be king.    The song builds a good case for the idea. This is a great song to tie together with Tom Petty's It's Good To Be King.  We could talk about that duo for hours. Yesterday I was looking up R&R videos and came across a live version of I Want To Be King with an introductory prelude that does an excellent job of explaining how songs are created.  More importantly the dramatic portrayal of Rosie's women really getting into this rendition of what will be one of the GLOB Master's best song of 2018:  

If I dare to be a dragon with fire on my tongue
heat on my breath, my words well done
I wouldn't have to yell, I wouldn't have to shout
everyone would listen when I open my mouth

I dare, I have a vision, I raise my hand
Cuz I want more than I'm given so I burn the plan,
I want to be king,
They say I can be anything
- I want to be king
-- Rosie & the Riveters
