    Dr. John sings the song, but like a lot of his early numbers, it was written by Allen Toussaint, recently passed. He wrote another which might have fit well here. I'm posting these because I love the spirit of this theme and figured that if the folks posting haven't heard these, they might want to sing them one day.

    And so here is a second post, also by Toussaint. There are a lot of versions of this one, the Pointers probably being the best known. This is the first, and my favorite:

    Two fantastic songs Southcoast. I loved them both. the first song was new to me. The second one should be familiar to everyone but it never came to mind. Thank You so much for bringing these along. They are both great and fit the theme well.
    Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and life to everything.

    Thanks for posting both of these. I had heard neither before, and "my world" is now a better place for hearing them. Geoff's theme was certainly a good one, and it is great to know that it is still at work.

    Greetings,

    And now for something completely different, my other Irishman (teenage son Conor) agreed to play a bit of bongo's to a tune he knows called "Human" by Rag n Bone Man. So, here is his opening percussive addition to the song as he hung out in his man/boy cave. It's priceless to me, that he agreed to even do it (ever so briefly). Thanks for offering this wonderful season!!!

    Hey y'all. Putting the thumbs up. Collabs welcome if my files are able to be tweaked. Who knows. Might happen. Ciao.
