Song of the Week - Episode 67

Not a lot to say this week. School is winding down. Some people need to wind just a little slower. I've been training the house down in preparation for my first attempt at a half-ironman triathlon. Dec 13th is the big day and I'm more than a little nervous.

Angus' class has been rehearsing for their end of year concert and part of their act is one of my favourite songs. They chose a great version as well:

Ike and Tina Turner - Proud Mary:

My mate Garry in London mentioned that he'd been listening to John Hiatt so I did a bit of a search and came up with this song. I like the sentiment and also it reminds me a lot of Neil Young's band, Crazy Horse.

John Hiatt - Perfectly Good Guitar:

Is it my fault that this song led into this one? An oldie but a goldie:

Bob Seger - Old Time Rock N Roll: Of course, some of you may remember this song from the TV series ALF:

And on to this week's featured tune. Lenny Kravitz is pretty famous now. Back in the day I heard this single and bought the album on cassette. For me, it is one of those rare albums without a dud track. Critics seem to disagree but that's their call. This track features Slash from Guns N Roses on guitar and I reckon if Tina Turner had continued on from her cover of Proud Mary she might've come up with something like this.

Lenny Kravitz - Always On The Run:
