Blogger Virginia’s wisdom is all tapped out, what with all she shared last week(!) Plus she’s a tad wiped out from a misbehaving thyroid that occasionally makes a full night of sleep an elusive endeavor. (Sporadic sleep a well-rested blogger does not make.)
This morning while blasting out Paul Simon to get today’s grooves going (after yet again too few hours sleep) suddenly the words from one of his songs permeated Virginia’s droopy consciousness.
“Oh Lord, don’t keep me up all night
With questions I can’t understand
While I wrestle my fears
The sound in my ears
Is the music that’s sweeping the land
The Insomniac’s Lullaby…” (Paul Simon)
Looked over at the iTouch to catch the song title: “Insomniac’s Lullaby.”
Appropriate for can’t sleep Virginia (and possibly others living in our whacked world with questions we can’t quite understand? Fears, ditto?)
It’s a great song with powerful lyrics, so here it is for all of you via a YouTube video. (Email readers, you know the drill – click in to the Roses website to view the video.)
Another fav song on this ‘Stranger to Stranger’ compilation is entitled Wristband. If you’d like some foot tapping action, click here to view a fun 4 minute VEVO video of Paul Simon and his band performing it. https://youtu.be/9lJHVpH5v8Q
Hopefully tonight we will all sleep side by side with the moon (not awake with the moon!)
grace, peace & insomniacs’ lullabies
Virginia : )
p.s. As a longtime Paul Simon groupie, I have enjoyed many of his compilations. ‘Stranger to Stranger’ is one of his newer ones, but my favorites are still ‘Graceland’ & ‘The Rhythm of the Saints.’
The video is not available here Virginia 😦
So sorry, Arlene, that the video is not available in the Philippines. (Maybe you can Google it?) Blessings, Arlene! 🙂
I will try Virginia, thanks!
Hope you enjoyed the lullaby grooves, Carol-Jo! 🙂
Re: Graceland the song…absolutely.
That’s a fav, but on Graceland I also (really) like the Homeless song Paul Simon does with LBM (Ladysmith Black Mambazo.) 🎧😎🎧
