The Daily GLOB


Happy Thursday!


GLOBmaster2017Good morning GLOBers.  You tell the GLOB Master.  Was that really a Wednesday yesterday with no rain?  And the weather website say there is just a 20 per cent chance of rain to say.  Well, well, well, that can get more than a little excited.  That and thinking about tomorrow being the best darn day for the week can get me really excited.  Since it is written prose day on the Daily GLOB grounds today in 19915 ABC's Diane Sawyer interviewed Michael Jackson and Lisa Marie Presley on ABC-TV's Prime Time Live. It was the couple's first interview since their surprise marriage a year earlier and was part of the publicity push for Jackson's album HIStory - Past, Present and Future: Book One. Jackson and Presley declared they were a "normal married couple who hoped to have a baby". When asked if they had sex, they replied "yes, yes, yes!" They also confirmed that a prenuptial agreement had been signed.

It might be because everyone else in my world thinks Bob Dylan is the end all, be all, consummate song writer that I tend to gravitate toward other very good word-smiths. That said when I hear a female artists singing a Bob Dylan tune it forces a smile and completely captivatess my attention. Joan Osborne created a tribute disk of Bob Dylan songs that is very well done and worth your consideration. Ms. Osborne's story telling ability while singing the song Tangled Up In Blue is compelling, magnificent.


061418Osborne200In addition to Billy Holiday, Joan Osborne looked to such legendary vocalists as Etta James and Ray Charles as role models, as the up-and-coming singer decided not to cater to major record companies and formed her own label. But eventually Joan Osborne decided to sign on with a major label, Mercury, which in turn issued the singer's next release, Relish, in March 1995. The album proved to have a long life, as almost a year after its initial release the track One of Us became a massive MTV and radio smash, camping out at the number one spot on the U.S. singles chart for two weeks, and Relish eventually racked up sales of three-million copies.

"Blue" is one of my all time favorite story tunes.  This song about a guy wandering through his younger days figuring out life: His own life, where he lives, and most importantly sharing his life with someone else. I don't know doctor, maybe I'm living a vicarious slice of life that slipped right by me, unrecognizable to the GLOB Master, when I hear this tune:

So I drifted down to New Orleans
Where I happened to be employed
Workin' for a while on a fishin' boat
Right outside of Delacroix
But all the while I was alone
The past was close behind
I seen a lot of women
But she never escaped my mind
And I just grew, tangled up in blue
-Tangled Up In Blue
- Bob Dylan
