    has anyone brought an einstein song yet?
    this is a jimmy buffet song

    And Good Morning/Afternoon/Evening from a sunny (again!) France! Big thanks to Joo and Jon and Brian for their "overnight" contributions. Brian brought the FIRST Einstein song! Einstein might not have been a "Surfer" in the true, physical sense, but he did make it down to the beach, as witnessed by this famous photo; and he had the most AMAZING taste in footwear.

    This man deserves MORE songs! And has anyone worked out the Theory of Relativity yet? And please bring me some more mothers, fathers, grandmas and grandads, aunties and uncles and brothers and sisters ... I need more relatives! Thanks to everyone.

    My first contribution this week is about abuse in the family. In this song a girl from a small town recalls a horrendous incident in her past and longs to escape from the town so she can be herself. It is dedicated to The Vicky Bernadet Foundation, an organisation in Barcelona that aids victims of sexual abuse in the family.

    BTW - the slogan on the button at the beginning says. "Break the Silence"

    The backing on this track is by Band in a Box - an amazing tool for songwriters.

    Default Forgot to add a photo

    Here is my younger brother and I at Santa's Grotto. I think he got a plastic Ukulele and I got handcuffs and a police whistle.

    Hi, Val and Seasonistas! I’m late to the party, but want to thank Val for hosting this week! It’s a great theme! I’m going to assume that ‘family’ isn’t necessarily ‘blood-related’ family, and that we can take liberties with one’s interpretation of ‘family?’ As Richard Bach writes in ‘Illusions’ (I may not be quoting precisely, here) — ‘Some members of family aren’t necessarily blood-related.’ (Or, something in that capacity!)

    ​Well, yes, Chelle ... why not? Assume away.

    Thanks for the sweet photo, Berni! (Santa obviously got it wrong ... YOU should have had the uke!)

    There are many songs called "Mother," but most aren't as grim and dark as this bit of Pink Floyd--just so we're clear, I love my mother very much and she's definitely NOT who I'm singing about here.

    Ok, here's another quick one, but only because there's only one song I know that's pretty directly about relativity/time dilation, and weirdly enough it's an acoustic song by Queen!
